Show of solidarity after Donald Trump attacks Justin Trudeau on Twitter

In response to the initial tweets critical of her country and prime minister, Canada's foreign minister, Chrystia Freeland, said her nation "does not conduct its diplomacy through ad hominem attacks".

Trump has framed the topic of trade agreements as an issue of national security, a stance backed by the advisers he has stocked in his White House, including the new National Security Advisor John Bolton. He stated that the recently imposed tariffs on Canadian aluminum and steel were "insulting" and that Canada would continue to stand up for itself against Trump's unfair agenda.

"[Trudeau] really kind of stabbed us in the back", Kudlow said.

Reaction to the Trump-Trudeau dispute has been fierce on both sides. Can't do it in person.

According to the USTR, America counts Canadian goods that are shipped to regional trading hubs within the United States and then re-exported back to Canada or Mexico as U.S. exports.

"There are always irritants in relationships", Pompeo said, adding that without partners like Canada, "we wouldn't be in this place, we wouldn't have this diplomatic opportunity" with the North.

The act, which encourages visits between U.S. and Taiwanese officials " at all levels ", was signed into law on March 16. The new AIT offices are being unveiled amid heightened concerns in Beijing over increasing U.S. involvement in Taiwan.


Trump says Trudeau "probably didn't know that Air Force One has about 20 televisions". He had other things, bigger things, on his plate in Singapore.

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 left the meeting, and I'll be honest, we're being taken advantage of by virtually every one of those countries very seriously". "It's a betrayal. He's double-crossing", he said Sunday. The official North Korean news agency said Sunday Kim is prepared to talk about "denuclearization" and a "durable peace". On Saturday, he called the Canadian prime minister "very dishonest and weak".

"This I've never seen before".

Sometimes described as a "mini-Obama", not least due to his omnipresent smile, Trudeau is clearly far closer in his political alignments to the US Democratic Party than Trump's Republicans. In the most Canadian manner (polite), not directly targeting anyone unlike POTUS (President of the United States).

His anger appears to have been sparked by a news conference Mr Trudeau gave after the summit, in which he described as "insulting" the way the USA cited national security as a reason for the tariffs.

And the young Canadian leader, who has attempted to maintain a public facade of friendship with the U.S. leader, confirmed that he would regretfully impose retaliatory tariffs on U.S. goods from next month to offset the steel levy.
