'Fool Trade': Trump continues to rip G7 in tweetstorm

Trump made his comments in a wide-ranging news conference in Singapore following his historic summit with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un.

Among the many topics the president addressed with reporters afterward was his recent Twitter campaign against Trudeau, whom he has called "dishonest" and "weak".

Trump said he departed the Group of Seven summit that Trudeau hosted in Quebec late last week on "very friendly" terms with his six counterparts, including the leaders of France, Germany, Italy, Japan and Britain. Trump addressed the feud following his meetings with Kim in Singapore at a more than hour-long press conference. "And Justin. And I said, "Oh that's nice, Justin's giving a" - And then he talked about how they won't be bullied".

"I feel that this has become a bad relationship; a relationship based on the President taking exactly what he wants", Grant's prime minister says.

In a string of angry tweets, Trump said the U.S. paid "close to the entire cost of Nato" to help protect countries that "rip us off on trade".

Trump has consistently railed against what he claims are unfair trade practices by some of America's biggest trade partners, including Canada - in particular Canada's supply management system, which levels tariffs of up to 300 per cent on imported dairy products.

NDP MP Tracey Ramsey's motion also affirmed the Commons' support for workers and supply management - and called on the House to "reject disparaging ad hominem statements by US officials which do a disservice to bilateral relations and work against efforts to resolve this trade dispute".

"That's going to cost a lot of money for the people of Canada; he learned", Trump said wagging his finger.

U.S. upsets China with new de facto embassy in Taiwan
Moy said the new building was "a symbol of the close cooperation and enduring friendship between the United States and Taiwan ". Tsai has also refused to acknowledge the "1992 consensus" that there is only "one China" and that Taiwan forms part of it.

While making no direct criticism of Mr Trump, Mrs May told MPs: "This was a hard summit with, at times, some very candid discussions, but the conclusion I draw is that it is only through continued dialogue that we can find ways to work together to resolve the challenges we face. And it won't even be tough".

It says that MPs "reject disparaging ad-hominem statements by USA officials, which do a disservice to bilateral relations and work against efforts to resolve this trade dispute".

Trump was infuriated by the news conference and abruptly withdrew United States support for the summit's relatively anodine closing statement, a boilerplate invocation of the importance of multilateral trade rules. Trudeau stuck our president in the back.

The Americans' criticism of Trudeau left a former Canadian prime minister, Stephen Harper, stumped. Among other things, she said the government should be preparing to keep pace with corporate tax cuts and tax breaks south of the border.

Two Trump advisers have used television interviews to attack Trudeau following the summit.

Republicans can't believe it's come to this: The United States is now clashing with Canada.

"We've had American tariffs that have been put in overnight, Mr. Speaker".
