Trump lashes out at U.S. allies in Twitter rant

Trump told Macron EU worse than China on trade

Trump told Macron EU worse than China on trade

While not defending Trump's choice of words in his tweets, some Republican lawmakers said the president is justified in pointing out trade imbalances with allies who have long benefited from USA military spending. They must open their markets and take down their trade barriers!

The privately owned US company also operates a lumber mill in Plaster Rock, N.B., which produces wood chips and biomass for the Edmundston operation.

But Twitter users went wild over another, much less serious issue: Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau's eyebrows. And, overall, the USA has an $8.4 billion surplus with Canada.

Trump's unpredictability and his history of not following through on all his threats lead some in the Canadian government to believe he might pull back from the auto tariffs threat.

In view of threatened United States tariffs on vehicle imports, which would particularly affect Germany, Grenell said that he was a "big auto fan" and knew how important the industry was.

"They come upon you abruptly and they dissipate just as quickly", he said Monday.

"Trump mentions Canada again in a couple more tweets about trade on June 4 - "... "I don't think this portends well for the future". 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 US goods and services but is willing to do so.

As expected, these countries are now retaliating with tariffs of their own that will hurt US farmers, manufacturers and blue-collar workers, the same people who voted for Trump.


"There are always irritants in relationships", Pompeo said while in Singapore for a summit between Trump and North Korea's Kim Jong Un.

"He's not going to tolerate that, nor should he", Graham said on Fox News.

Mr Trudeau, who had said at the news conference that Canada would retaliate over new United States tariffs, did not respond to questions about Mr Trump when the prime minister arrived at a Quebec City hotel on Sunday for meetings with other world leaders.

He is urging USA officials to focus on unfair trade practices, like steel dumping by China.

Trudeau himself was nowhere to be seen Monday, taking a break after hosting the tense, three-day summit, to which Trump arrived late, left early and then upended with a Twitter tirade from Air Force One. "Our Tariffs are in response to his of 270% on dairy!" "He did a whole disservice to the whole G-7".

On Sunday, White House economic adviser Peter Navarro, who said there was "a special place in hell" for Trudeau, criticized the government's outreach campaign, saying the Canadians should "spend more time at the bargaining table and less time lobbying Capitol Hill and our press and state governments".

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 issues another Twitter salvo Sunday night, suggesting that Canada is "bragging" in an unspecified release about benefiting from USA trade - "Fair Trade is now to be called Fool Trade if it is not Reciprocal".
