Canadian lawmakers unanimously accuse U.S. of attacking Trudeau

Justin Trudeau Canadian prime minister

But a source close to Trudeau told AFP Canada was "prepared for all eventualities". But he acknowledges that Trump might not realize he's jeopardizing U.S.jobs by triggering a series of tariffs and counter-tariffs with Canada.

The Group of Seven meet over the weekend saw much drama, opening up the possibility of a trade war, but what stole the show on social media were Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau's eyebrows.

And going after Justin Trudeau once again tweeting "Justin acts hurt when called out".

Describing the U.S. tariffs on European steel and aluminium as "unjustified", she left no doubt that EU nations would impose counter-measures on U.S. goods in response but cautioned against tit-for-tat retaliation which might lead to a trade war.

The U.S condemnation stems from Trudeau's assertion that Canadians "are polite, we're reasonable, but we also will not be pushed around", a point he had made several times before.

Trudeau reiterated that his nation's retaliatory tariffs will go into effect July 1.

Trump's renewed comments on trade come amid a growing dispute between Washington and its top allies.

The United States maintains a largely free and fair trading relationship with Canada.

Speaking to reporters following his historic meeting with North Korean leader Kim Jong-un in Singapore on Monday, Trump also addressed his recent Twitter campaign against Trudeau, whom he has called "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.

At an event hosted by the Journal, Navarro said he had made a mistake, according to the newspaper.

"That's going to cost a lot of money for the people of Canada", Trump said.

Ries says it could take a while for Canadian consumers to suffer.

Kudlow said the president won't "let a Canadian prime minister push him around".

"At this hard moment in our history with our USA neighbors, Canadians need to know that all sides of this House stand united as one", Ms. Ramsey said Monday.

"The United States and Canada are in a fight, obviously".

Justin Trudeau seemed to stifle a smile as he gave a very special present to Donald Trump - a framed picture of the first hotel that his grandfather, Friedrich Trump, opened in Canada.

Canada, she said, is still seeking a "win-win-win" NAFTA deal, while adding that Ottawa will remain "absolutely resolute in defense of the national interest".
