Canada parliament slams US' Trudeau attack

President Donald Trump talks with Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau during the Women's Entrepreneurship Finance event at the G20 Summit in Hamburg, Germany, Saturday, July 8, 2017. In a series of tweets, the U.S. president called him "very dishonest and weak" and accused him of making false statements. "Our Tariffs are in response to his of 270% on dairy!"

In an extraordinary interview with CNN's State of the Union on Sunday, Larry Kudlow, who was present for negotiations at the G7 summit in Quebec over the weekend, said Trudeau had instigated "a betrayal" and was "essentially double-crossing President Trump". He also attacked Trudeau's character, calling the Liberal Party leader meek, weak and dishonest.

The prime minister's silence on Monday came in sharp contrast to a roar of disapproval among Canadian politicians, who banded together across party lines to denounce Trump's attack and praise the bilateral and trading relationship between the two neighbours.

The Post wrote that Canada "has every right to be insulted".

Mexico has put tariffs on American products ranging from steel to pork and bourbon, responding to US President Donald Trump's metal tariffs and taking aim at Republican strongholds ahead of US congressional elections in November.

Canadian Foreign Minister Chrystia Freeland responded to the White House assault by saying ad hominem attacks were not helpful, that Canada would retaliate to USA tariffs in a measured and reciprocal way and that Canada would always be willing to talk.

"Canada has been restrained throughout in dealing with a temperamental president and I think all the way through we've avoided rising to provocation and tried to deal with the facts", said McKenna.

The editorial board criticized Trump trade adviser Peter Navarro's comment Sunday that there is a "special place in hell" for Trudeau, a remark he made after the summit ended.

Mrs May said she made clear to Mr Trump that the U.S. levies were unacceptable - but she underlined the need for dialogue to stop the dispute from escalating.

"Canadians are polite, we're reasonable, but we also will not be pushed around", Mr Trudeau said.

We have very little use for Trudeau, that avatar of chic progressivism, or for Trump's other foil, Angela Merkel, the very embodiment of the short-sighted and high-handed European establishment.

And Roland Paris, a former foreign policy adviser to Mr Trudeau, jabbed at Mr Trump on Twitter: "Big tough guy once he's back on his airplane".

Trudeau kept silence after the personal attacks.

On board Air Force One, an AFP reporter was told that Trump had approved the agreement, only to be told later of the tweets. "And if it's not fixed, we're not going to deal with these countries". "Tariffs will come way down", Trump said. "The European Union is brutal to the United States. It was very friendly", Trump said. In the end, that language stayed in and it was only on climate change that no consensus was reached.
