Navarro voices regret for harsh words about Canadian leader

Trump swiftly responded to Trudeau by upending the communiqué in a series of tweets Saturday evening. "Canadians, we're polite, we're reasonable, but we also will not be pushed around", Trudeau said, triggering a dispute that now revolves around three key issues.

Trudeau has vehemently opposed the imposition of tariff on USA import of Canadian steel and aluminium and has threatened with retaliatory measures.

In the two tweets that ended USA support for the joint G-7 statement, Trump accused Trudeau of having made "false statements" during a news conference.

While making no direct criticism of Mr Trump, Mrs May acknowledged that the summit had been "difficult" and told MPs she had expressed her "deep disappointment" at the "unjustified" imposition of tariffs on American imports of European steel and aluminium.

Asked about the president's Twitter blasts, Trudeau says June 7 that he won't sink to that level - "I've been firm, I've been clear, but I don't think descending into insults is right for the way Canada engages with the world".

Hours after Trump withdrew his support for the joint statement and attacked Trudeau, White House economic advisor Larry Kudlow and trade adviser Peter Navarro drove the message home on Sunday morning news shows in an extraordinary assault on a close US ally and neighbor.

Trudeau, in Quebec City for bilateral meetings with non-G7 leaders after the summit, did not comment as he arrived.

Trudeau's itinerary was marked "personal" and he was not in the House of Commons.

He said the European Union "should pay much more for Military!"

Fed Raises Interest Rates for Second Time this Year

First, "MPs voted to reverse the Lords amendment removing the "exit day" from the bill by 326 votes to 301 - a majority of 25". The rebels said on Tuesday they were told the promise made by the prime minister was "a matter of trust".


French Farmers Block Refineries across the Country
It urged clients not to rush to petrol stations to fill their tanks, which could spark panic buying and shortages. Total's decision was "the last straw", she said in an interview with Franceinfo television.


The Prime Minister simply stated that the recently imposed tariffs on Canadian aluminum and steel were "insulting" (in reaction to Trump's previous statement that 'Canada posed a national security threat to the U.S.') and Canada would continue to stand up for itself against Trump's unfair agenda.

"I feel that Kim Jong Un wants to do something great for his people and he has that opportunity", Trump said at a press conference just before he departed a G-7 summit in Charlevoix, Canada, for his historic Tuesday rendezvous with Kim in Singapore.

She said with the Trump administration's decision to implement new tariffs on aluminum and steel imports to the United States, "multilateralism right now is in a complicated and hard phase".

Canadian officials, including Trudeau, have fanned across America as part of a months-long charm offensive to appeal to pro-trade Republicans at every level. He said the Canadian leader must not have realized that Trump had televisions on Air Force One, allowing him to monitor Trudeau's news conference at the end of the G-7 summit.

"I know it didn't look friendly", Trump said.

Having left the G7 summit in Canada early, Trump's announcement on Twitter that he was backing out of the joint communique torpedoed what appeared to be a fragile consensus on a trade dispute between Washington and its top allies. Now there is a question mark over that.

Trump's stinging critique - while technically accurate - obscures the larger trade relationship between the two countries.

France is also standing by the G7 communique, a French presidency official said, adding anyone departing from the commitments made at the summit would be showing their "incoherence and inconsistency".

"He's giving a news conference about how he will not be pushed around by the United States". "And if it's not fixed, we're not going to deal with these countries".
