Donald Trump: Justin Trudeau's criticism will cost Canada 'a lot of money'

President Donald Trump says Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau "learned" from the mistake of criticizing him and it's going to cost Canada "a lot of money". You know they put out a document, I don't know if you saw it.

The former Conservative prime minister said that while he believes the dispute is serious, that doesn't make it "lethal". The compromise on that issue resulted in language that said "free, fair, and mutually beneficial trade and investment, while creating reciprocal benefits, are key engines for growth and job creation". Mulroney began working with Trudeau a year ago.

While foreign policy issues such as North Korea do not usually have much bearing on the polls, Mr Trump's outburst against Nato allies, the European Union and Canada appeared aimed at striking a chord with voters who support his America First agenda.

Prior to Trump's departure for Singapore, worldwide leaders met in Quebec over the weekend for the G7 conference.

The foreign affairs minister will have her work cut out for her as she attempts to see Canada spared from the U.S.'s heavy-handed steel, aluminum and auto tariffs and mend the increasingly frayed relationship between the two countries. The tariffs came into effect on imports from Canada and the other originally exempted nations this month.

Before flying to Singapore, Mr. Trump was in Canada for the G-7 summit with leaders from Canada, France, Germany, Italy, Japan and the U.K. All seven leaders had worked out a joint statement stressing the importance of a rules-based worldwide trading system. Pre-summit reports from the White House suggested that the president even considered skipping the summit altogether.

On Saturday, the summit's second and final day, President Trump left early and took to Twitter to praise Canada, seemingly leaving the country on positive terms. He just won and you know, we had very good. "Canada. Maybe we need a northern wall", he said.

In tweets, Trump insulted Trudeau as "dishonest" and "weak".

"What I saw Prime Minister Trudeau say was, I thought, fairly benign and certainly didn't warrant any attack".

Without any resolution, Trudeau has promised to impose retaliatory tariffs on metals and a range of other USA products by Canada Day.

Senior officials of the Trump administration piled on the smears.

"He really stabbed us in the back".

The president's staff then blasted Trudeau on Sunday with economic advisor Larry Kudlow accusing Canada of stabbing the the back. John McCain who responded with a very different message for USA allies: "Americans stand with you, even if our president doesn't".

Another stumbling block was the part regarding climate change, where the USA didn't want to see any reference to the Paris Agreement, from which the Trump administration has withdrawn, The Star reported.
