Justin Trudeau: We won't be pushed around by Trump

While the agreement of legislators who are normally opposed on most fronts was remarkable, the anger also spread to pundits, officials, celebrities and ordinary citizens as Canadians vowed consumer boycotts of American goods and brainstormed insults of Trump on social media.

Trump called the prime minister "dishonest" and "weak" on Twitter, and denounced a joint G7 communiqué that German Chancellor Angela Merkel said affirmed a commitment to "rule-based trade order".

After Trump left the event, he launched a scathing attack on Canada's tariffs, while Trudeau called the US president's steel and aluminum imports tax "kind of insulting", and insisted that Canadians "will not be pushed around" when it comes to further talks.

We have to stand behind our prime minister - just as we did many years ago - in steadfastly placing blame where it deserves to be, and that's in Washington. Trump tweeted that Trudeau was "very dishonest & weak".

In a mocking tone, Kudlow rattled off the reasons Trudeau offered for his barbed critique of Trump's policies. Speaking on Fox News Sunday, White House trade adviser Peter Navarro said there is a "special place in hell" for Trudeau and accused him of "bad-faith diplomacy".

Police in Tennessee say a woman, identified as Leimome Cheeks , was charged after mobile phone video emerged of the incident. Skylarr Blake, Cheeks' neighbor, told WATN that Cheeks was a "nice lady" and that he couldn't "see her doing that".

But when questioned about the USA imposition of tariffs on steel and aluminum, Trudeau reaffirmed his intention to retaliate on July 1 with equivalent tariffs. "It's not the right approach", Moore said. Does anybody believe that makes sense? "One thing leads to another".

Of the 32 states that count Canada as their biggest export destination, 20 voted for Trump in the 2016 election. Among other things, she said the government should be preparing to keep pace with corporate tax cuts and tax breaks south of the border.

We have a feeling this is all far from over... considering Trump still has access to Twitter. The president also repeated claims that Canada overtaxes American dairy products under its supply management system and complained about Canadian automobiles flooding the US market.

He added that EU Commission President Jean-Claude Juncker thanked Trudeau "for the excellent preparation and chairing of this challenging summit".

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".

And now 45 years later, IHOP appears to be heading for another tweak. So for many Arabs, IHOP has always been known as IHOB. Now, we're flippin' our name to IHOb .

"He followed up by asking why the U.S. should "allow countries to continue to make "massive trade surpluses", asserting that it is "not fair to the people of America" and that the USA is suffering under a "$800 billion trade deficit".

"This I've never seen before".

"I personally believe that the US has borne more than its fair share of most global obligations", Shelby said. Canada and Mexico are also taking action in retaliation.

Kudlow, the conservative economist who directs the National Economic Council, was upset with Trudeau's comments at a press conference after the contentious Group of 7 summit in Quebec. And he urged Canada's industrial leaders to remain calm in the face of ongoing threats from the U.S president.
