Canada stands together and boycotts Trump's United States

  • US President Donald Trump waves as he arrives to board Air Force One to depart for travel to Singapore from the Canadian Forces Base Bagotville Quebec Canada

Trump lashed out at his Canadian host over milk tariffs, which account for 0.2 percent of U.S.

"That action is also illegal under the WTO and NAFTA rules".

The G7's other attendees fear a looming trade war over the Trump administration's move to impose steep tariffs on steel and aluminum imports from the European Union, Canada and Mexico.

Michael Byers, a professor of global politics at the University of British Columbia, said that despite the current turbulence, the US-Canada relationship "transcends any president or prime minister".

Canada's dollar for dollar counter duties are set to kick in July 1.

"It is increasingly freaky to see an administration heaping praise on a totalitarian dictator while using unprecedented language to condemn the elected head of government of the United States' closest ally", Kenney said. He said Trudeau's promise to follow through with tariffs on United States goods - a response to Trump's own tariffs on steel and aluminum imports from Canada, Mexico, and the European Union - would hurt the Canadian economy.

The implications of a high auto tariff would be felt by everyone working in the auto sector and beyond, said Jerry Dias, president of Unifor, which represents Canadian auto workers.

Ralph Goodale, Canadian public safety minister and former finance minister, applauded President Trump for reaching a deal with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un to denuclearize the Korean Peninsula.




Trump once again went after Trudeau for what Trump considers unfair trading practices. "But as these kinds of absurd statements and rude outbursts pile up, antagonism and resentment might too, which would be terribly unfortunate and even surreal for two of the best neighbors on the planet", Goetz said. Very dishonest and weak.

The only hint of a softening came when Peter Navarro, the White House economic advisor, apologized for saying there was a "special place in hell" for Trudeau.

"The important thing for the Americans to understand is that our economies and industries are highly integrated" and that tariffs would be very bad for both sides, said the official, speaking on condition of anonymity. In reality, the United States has long-standing and very beneficial trade relations with Europe, Japan, and Canada and that worldwide trade from these countries, and indeed from around the world, has inured to the benefit of the United States for generations now.

"He followed up by asking why the U.S. should "allow countries to continue to make "massive trade surpluses", asserting that it is "not fair to the people of America" and that the USA is suffering under a "$800 billion trade deficit".

Canadian politicians of all stripes have rallied around Trudeau, unanimously passing a motion Monday supporting the prime minister and denouncing Trump's personal attacks on him.

Freeland also warned that authoritarianism was on the rise and Canada and its allies would have to step up to preserve liberal democracy around the world.

Freeland hopes to meet with U.S. Trade Representative Robert Lighthizer.

The U.S. has initiated an investigation to determine if automobile imports threaten to impair national security.
