Trump continued tweeting Sunday evening about Trudeau, accusing Canada of making $100 billion in trade with the U.S.

Trump is in Singapore where he is meeting with North Korean leader Kim Jong-Un.

"It would be with regret but it would be with absolute clarity and firmness that we move forward with retaliatory measures on July 1, applying equivalent tariffs to the ones that the Americans have unjustly applied to us", said Trudeau.

Mrs May said she made clear to Mr Trump that the USA levies were unacceptable - but she underlined the need for dialogue to stop the dispute from escalating. $800 Billion Trade Deficit...

The president ruffled feathers at the G7 summit, not backing down from stiff tariffs on aluminum and steel imports.

"I have made it very clear to the President that it is not something we relish doing, but it something that we absolutely will do", Trudeau said.

Mocked for cultural gaffes on a recent trip to India, and slammed by others for his efforts in renegotiating the North America Free Trade Agreement at Trump's behest, Trudeau has also been attacked by the left-wing for his decision to nationalize an oil pipeline that had bogged down in protest and controversy.

Listen above to hear what kind of impact these retaliatory tariffs might have on the USA, why George says the tariffs will "hurt both sides", and how the global bridge between MI and Canada fits into the countries' trad relationship. In the prime minister's absence the House unanimously adopted a motion to stand against USA tariffs and tirades.

He said Trump "did the courtesy to Justin Trudeau to travel up to Quebec for that summit".

"Why should I, as President of the United States, allow countries to continue to make Massive Trade Surpluses, as they have for decades, while our Farmers, Workers & Taxpayers have such a big and unfair price to pay?" he tweeted.

The president concluded his tweetstorm by saying, "Sorry, we can not let our friends, or enemies, take advantage of us on Trade anymore".

"And I said, 'push him around?'" Trump said, describing his reaction to the press conference.
