Trump tariffs will force "dollar for dollar" retaliation says Canadian diplomat

US tariffs European Union G7 Summit BBC

The purely symbolic vote of solidarity came a day after White House trade adviser Peter Navarro said: "There is a special place in hell" for Trudeau for his "bad faith diplomacy" with Trump, as a dispute over trade escalated.

Describing the U.S. tariffs on European steel and aluminium as "unjustified", she left no doubt that EU nations would impose counter-measures on United States goods in response but cautioned against tit-for-tat retaliation which might lead to a trade war.

"Way over the top with Navarro".

Mrs May said she made clear to Mr Trump that the United States levies were unacceptable - but she underlined the need for dialogue to stop the dispute from escalating.

"Canadians, we're polite, we're reasonable, but we also will not be pushed around", Trudeau said after the summit ended in controversy.

He complained that he had been blindsided by Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau's criticism of his tariff threats at a summit-ending news conference.

Normally a conciliatory, charming figure, Justin Trudeau is being forced to transform himself into a kind of "Captain Canada" in order to fight a trade war with Donald Trump that has the potential to be as destructive as it is surprising.

"I'm very confident that relationships between our countries, the United States and those G7 countries, will continue to move forward on a strong basis", Pompeo told reporters.

"Fair trade is now to be called fool trade if it is not reciprocal", he wrote in one tweet that then went on to accuse Canada of imposing unfair taxes on USA dairy products. "Not fair to the PEOPLE of America!" he tweeted.

"Fair Trade is now to be called Fool Trade if it is not Reciprocal", he tweeted. And chief economic adviser Larry Kudlow accused Trudeau of betrayal and stabbing Trump in the back. He reiterated his longstanding view that the U.S. has been taken advantage of in global trade, adding, "We're like the piggy bank that everybody's robbing, and that ends".

Trump on Saturday skipped out early on the G-7 meeting after rejecting the summit's statement of shared values.

All of the countries attending the G7 meeting agreed to a communique showing shared priorities.

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. "I don't understand the obsession with trade relations with Canada", he sighed.
