Donald Trump Withdraws Endorsement Of G7 Joint Statement

Reuters

President Donald Trump's chief economic adviser Larry Kudlow and his trade adviser Peter Navarro blasted Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau on Sunday for "betraying" the United States and engaging in "bad faith diplomacy" at this week's fractious G7 summit.

Trump administration members continued a war of words with a traditional USA ally Sunday, accusing Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau of stabbing the president's team in the back.

During a press conference after the summit, Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau flatly rejected a proposal by the White House to insert a sunset clause in a re-negotiated North American Free Trade Agreement.

When asked if the president shares his views, Navarro said that the sentiment came from "Air Force One".

Sen. Dianne Feinstein, California Democrat, said it's one thing for Mr. Trump to get angry, but quite another to ditch the agreement. "That's what weak, dishonest Justin Trudeau did".

Asked what Trudeau did that amounted to betrayal, Kudlow criticized the Canadian leader for holding a press conference in which he called US tariffs "insulting".

In the week leading up to the the G-7 Summit President Trump engaged in the most Trumpian sort of diplomacy: he very publicly attacked out closest allies. "Trudeau stuck our president in the back and that will not stand". His tweet also accused the prime minister of being "dishonest and weak", and claimed that he only placed tariffs on aluminum and steel in response to Canada's "270% on dairy!"

The report says that the Arkansas company produced the frozen uncooked and breaded chicken tenderloins on May 17. The USDA said Tyson notified it on Friday that its breading supplier was recalling the breading ingredients.

He really kind of stabbed us in the back.

Navarro wasn't the only top Trump adviser to use his appearance on a Sunday talk show to take pot-shots at Trudeau for daring to respond to the president's tariffs.

Navarro calls that a "socialist communique" that Trump pulled out of.

Former Canadian Prime Minister Stephen Harper said Sunday he is unsure why the Trump administration is heavily focused on trade relations with Canada, being that the northern neighbor is one of the strongest allies of the U.S. He described Trudeau's news conference as "sophomoric" and a "political stunt". Trudeau criticized tariffs imposed by Trump and said: "Canadians, we're polite, we're reasonable, but we also will not be pushed around".

Kudlow was particularly offended that Trudeau would say this ahead of Trump's North Korean summit.

Krishnamoorthi, who represents Illinois' 8th District, said Trudeau's comments will only hurt the long-term relationship between the United States and Canada.

Noting the USA imposition of tariffs was officially stated as a national security consideration, Freeland said: "We are very clear that Canada does not pose a national security threat to the United States".
