Browbeaten? On Twitter, Justin Trudeau's 'Fake Eyebrows' Trumps US Tirade

US President Donald Trump accuses India of charging 100 per cent tariff on some imports

The spat has also drawn in Germany and France, who sharply criticised Mr Trump's decision to abruptly withdraw his support for a G7 communique hammered out at a Canadian summit, accusing him of destroying trust and acting inconsistently.

Canadian Foreign Minister Chrystia Freeland spoke against the United States over its tariffs on steel and aluminum on Friday during the summit.

Mr Kudlow suggested Mr Trump saw Mr Trudeau as trying to weaken his hand before that meeting, saying the president would not "let a Canadian prime minister push him around".

Navarro also said Trump attending the G7 in Canada was a "courtesy" to Trudeau and that the President had "bigger things on his plate" in Singapore.

President of the European Council Donald Tusk said that "There is a special place in heaven for Justin Trudeau". Or we'll stop trading with them'.

She also said the European Union would "act" against the USA trade measures.

According to US Census Bureau data, Canada was the top export destination for 32 states in 2016, by far the most of any country.

"Just when we thought it couldn't get worse", Nicholas Burns, US ambassador to North Atlantic Treaty Organisation in the George W. Bush administration, said on Twitter after Kudlow's appearance on CNN.

Canadian Foreign Minister Chrystia Freeland had responded to the White House comments by saying that Canada will retaliate to U.S. tariffs in a measured and reciprocal way and that Canada will always be willing to talk. According to Trudeau, he told the president that Canadians may be polite and reasonable but they will not be pushed around and that his nation doesn't "relish" putting tariffs on USA goods and services but is willing to do so. "Our Tariffs are in response to his of 270% on dairy!"

In the meantime, Canada will continue to lobby the Trump administration for an exemption from the steel and aluminum tariffs.

Former Minister of National Defence in Stephen Harper's government, among other positions, Peter MacKay dropped by our Toronto Sun offices to chat with Editor-In-Chief Adrienne Batra and unpack what Trump and Trudeau's growing feud means to Canada (hello: recession?!) and why he wishes our PM had been chiller with Trump.

In a dizzying 48-hour period, Trump refused to sign on to the official G7 statement, aired grievances with other leaders on trade, and attacked Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau is a series of tweets after leaving the summit early.

In return, Mr Trump made the French president his guest at his first White House state dinner, after which the U.S. president said of his visitor: "I like him a lot".

Trump reacted in a tweet:"Based on Justin's false statements at his news conference, and the fact that Canada is charging massive Tariffs to our US farmers, workers and companies, I have instructed our US Reps not to endorse the Communique as we look at Tariffs on automobiles flooding the US Market!"

The Trump administration confirmed on May 31 it would apply additional tariffs on steel and aluminium imports from Canada, Mexico and European Union countries, ending a two-month exemption period.

So what exactly did Trudeau say?

"I think she is outlining Canada's actual position and is outlining actual steps that have been taken and are being taken", he told Xinhua in an interview.

U.S. President Donald Trump speaks to the media as he leaves the G7 Summit in the Charlevoix town of La Malbaie, Quebec, Canada, June 9, 2018.

"Sorry, we can not let our friends, or enemies, take advantage of us on trade anymore".
