Facing off with Trump, Trudeau dons the cape of ´Captain Canada´

The potent brew of indignation and patriotism among Canadians at the president's bully tactics has produced conditions ripe for a Boycott America backlash.

Trudeau's remarks have enraged U.S. President Donald Trump, who tweeted hours later that he had instructed U.S. representatives not to endorse the G7 joint communique "based on Justin's false statements at his news conference, and the fact that Canada is charging massive Tariffs to our U.S. farmers, workers and companies".

On June 7 - the eve of Trudeau's G7 summit - Trump sends out another missive - "Prime Minister Trudeau is being so indignant, bringing up the relationship that the USA and Canada had over the many years and all sorts of other things ... but he doesn't bring up the fact that they charge us up to 300% on dairy - hurting our Farmers, killing our Agriculture!"

"The new Trudeau has arrived", one analyst told Radio Canada on Monday, noting that thanks to the public and political support building behind him, "Trudeau can think of himself as the great defender of his country and that he can don the cape of "Captain Canada" which served his farther so well".

Experts say the Trudeau spat and the likelihood of tariffs from the European Union and Canada will result in a trade war.

Freeland said Sunday that she remains hopeful that "common sense will triumph".

White House economic adviser Larry Kudlow and trade adviser Peter Navarro drove the message home in an extraordinary assault on a close United States ally and neighbour.

"The world and the worldwide community is now being, in a way, reorganized".

KUDLOW: Kim must not see American weakness.

French President Emmanuel Macron's office also slammed Trump's decision to reject the official communique and denounced the USA president's negotiating tactics.

Alisson, on his future
After Brazil's friendly victory against Austria, Alisson Becker talked about his future and the rumors of the transfer market. The Roma and Brazil goalkeeper was believed to be Liverpool's top goalkeeper target for the summer.

Heyman added he's "of course ... embarrassed" about Trump's behavior during the G-7 meeting, arguing the United States "was doing everything it could do to disrupt this meeting". "So, how seriously do you take that threat and does that change your plans to go ahead with the retaliatory tariffs?" He said USA representatives will examine the tariffs on automobiles coming into the country and bemoaned the Canadian tariffs that affect American companies and farmers.

But there is a consensus among economists and business groups that protectionism will prove disastrous for everyone.

Mr Corbyn said the US President and his "American First" policy was squarely responsible for the breakdown in trade relations between the US and Europe.

"These are unsafe trade policies that threaten to undermine recent economic progress and eliminate millions of good paying jobs across America", it concluded in a report last week.

Trump has already kick-started an investigation into auto imports, which could result in tariffs on foreign vehicles. GM, which produces around 80 per cent of its vehicles in the USA, could perhaps emerge as a net victor, but other companies like Ford, with just 64 per cent of production in the US, would suffer. He's the chief economic adviser to the president.

Responding to the prime minister, Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn branded the G7 summit a "failure" as he piled the blame on the USA president. "Not fair to the PEOPLE of America!" he tweeted.

Canada's most powerful response to this diplomatic dissonance, short of the mutually assured destruction of blocking energy exports, is a popular mobilization that gives individual Canadians a stake in the trade war effort.

Canada responded by slapping tariffs on $12.8billion worth of USA exports, including metals, toilet paper, ball point pens and pizza.

But the weekend tussle puts a question mark over negotiations for a new NAFTA deal, even as Trump threatens to impose tariffs on foreign automobiles and auto parts, which would deal a serious blow to the Canadian economy. En masse, Canadians have decided, it's time to get tough.
