Canadian PM Justin Trudeau's 'Eyebrow' Causes Social Media Firestorm

  • G7 leaders agree 'rapid response' to Russian meddling

"As Canadians, we're polite, we're reasonable, but also we will not be pushed around", he said.

Trudeau had been saying the same thing for several weeks, but Trump apparently found it reprehensible to repeat the message on the eve of his historic summit with North Korean dictator Kim Jong-un.

Canada is America's largest trading partner, he said, adding that the US economy would struggle to make up for Canada's absence in a tariff tit-for-tat.

Trump acted following Trudeau's reiteration of Canada's opposition to new USA tariffs on steel and aluminum imports.

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

June 10 - Trump's economic advisor Larry Kudlow tells CNN that Trudeau "stabbed us in the back". Hours ago, Secretary of State Mike Pompeo held a news conference in which he said Trump is prepared to offer North Korea unprecedented security assurances, although he did not specify what these guarantees would be. If this is how Trump treats his closest allies, why would Kim Jong Un believe anything he hears at the negotiating table this week, especially after Trump has already pulled America out of existing worldwide agreements?

After Trump refused to sign a diplomatic communique agreed to with other G-7 nations at a summit last weekend, Schumer said Trump appeared to be tailoring his foreign policy to the wishes of Russian President Vladimir Putin.

Trudeau didn't respond to questions about Trump when the prime minister arrived at a Quebec City hotel Sunday for meetings with other world leaders, though Freeland later told reporters that "we don't think that's a useful or productive way to do business".

Since Trump's election, Trudeau has tried to take a conciliatory approach to the Republican president.

Here’s what Square Enix announced at E3 2018
Additionally, the new trailer announced the Edition of Light copy, which includes a Supplicant, Healer, and three Seeds of Skill. E3 2018 marked Square Enix's return to holding a press conference at the event, as its last showcase was at E3 2015.

Following a Twitter tirade against Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, Mr Trump was censured by both French President Emmanuel Macron and German Chancellor Angela Merkel.

But the response by USA lawmakers, business executives and officials falls short of the concerted and effective nationwide pressure campaign Canadian officials had hoped would be launched if a major threat developed.

Hours after Trump withdrew his support for the joint statement and attacked Trudeau, Kudlow and trade adviser Peter Navarro drove the message home on Sunday morning news shows in an extraordinary assault on a close USA ally and neighbor.

Trump was reacting to Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, who said Saturday that Canada would retaliate for Trump's proposed new tariffs.

Kudlow, in a separate TV appearance, said Trudeau was "polarizing" and "really kind of stabbed us in the back".

Chief trade adviser Peter Navarro said there's "a special place in hell" for Trudeau and anyone else who negotiates in "bad faith" with Trump. At one point he wrote, "Justin acts hurt when called out".

But, despite the summit ending in acrimony, Mrs May stressed the United Kingdom remains committed to working together with other nations on global challenges such as free trade. "Our tariffs are in response to his of 270 per cent on dairy!"

- En route to Singapore, Trump launches a ferocious attack against Trudeau on Twitter, calling his behaviour during G7 meetings "meek and mild" and accusing him of making "false statements" at his press conference. "But we're getting them worked out, slowly but surely". Russian Federation was expelled from the group - which now includes France, Canada, Germany, Italy, Japan, the United Kingdom and the USA - following its annexation of Crimea in 2014.

"Trudeau made a decision to attack the president".
