Trudeau's criticism will cost Canada 'a lot of money'

Speaking at a conference in Washington on Tuesday, Navarro said his "job" in appearing on Fox News Sunday in the chaotic aftermath of the G7 summit in Quebec had been "to send a signal of strength". Trump said Monday that Kudlow was admitted to hospital after suffering a heart attack.

Kudlow said the USA participated in G7 talks and bilateral talks on NAFTA in good faith and that Trump had been "charming".

Canada's House of Commons stood Monday in defiance of Donald Trump, denouncing his name-calling tirade against Justin Trudeau and endorsing the prime minister's firm response to protectionist USA tariffs and tweeted presidential threats against dairy producers and automakers.

Senior White House economic adviser Larry Kudlow speaks during a briefing at the White House in Washington, Wednesday, June 6, 2018, on the upcoming G7 summit.

"We want to see the prime minister and the federal government stand up to the president", Bilous said Tuesday at the Global Petroleum Show in Calgary. The move has been roundly criticized by Canada and the European Union, leading to heightened tensions at last week's summit of the Group of Seven wealthy democracies - just before Trump left for Singapore and a meeting with North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un.

Leave it to U.S. President Donald Trump to bring Canadian Liberals and Conservatives together! The U.S. had a trade surplus with Canada of $8.4 billion a year ago, according to the Office of the United States Trade Representative.

Earlier today, Trudeau cheered Trump's bid to broker a deal to rid the Korean Peninsula of nuclear weapons, but he stayed mum on the USA administration's persistent trash talk.

Trump says Trudeau "probably didn't know that Air Force 1 has about 20 televisions. That's what weak, dishonest Justin Trudeau did", said Navarro, referring to the joint press conference that is routinely held at the end of the annual events. "Not unusual to argue with allies".

Burns, now a professor at Harvard University's Kennedy School, termed Navarro's comments "over the top embarrassing".

Critics like Hall Findlay say it is a barrier to successful free-trade deals such as NAFTA, and increases the cost of dairy, eggs and chicken for consumers, which has an unfairly disproportionate impact on low-income families.

By using the G-7 summit as leverage in a bilateral trade negotiation, the United States missed an opportunity to work with allies to address issues such as terrorist financing and foreign threats to democracy.

Trudeau did not fire back when asked to respond to his US counterpart's latest jab.

"I'm concerned because Canada has been a reliable ally, a close friend, and one of our biggest trading partners", Collins told Politico. I think he should apologize to the prime minister.

How should Trudeau respond to the White House's insults?
