The others mocked the U.S. president, who withdrew United States endorsement to a G7 economic agreement on Sunday.
U.S. President Donald Trump thinks our prime minister is “dishonest” and “meek and mild”.
As well, she said the government should accelerate work on its Plan B in the event that Trump blows up NAFTA or follows through on threats to impose tariffs on autos and auto parts – a move Ambrose said would be devastating to Canada’s economy. “It’s kind of insulting”. “Canadians – we’re polite, we’re reasonable – but we also will not be pushed around”.
Ms. May ducked Mr. Corbyn’s question and when later asked by Conservative MP Crispin Blunt: “Trudeau or Trump?”, she smiled and replied: “I’m not sure what activity he’s asking me to undertake with either of them”.
Just hours ahead of a historic summit in Singapore, lawmakers back in Washington are openly questioning President Donald Trump’s latest global strategy with some bemoaning that the White House is alienating American allies while simultaneously stretching the bounds of cooperation with long-held enemies. Hayden added that Trump’s actions left him with “a mixture of sadness and, frankly, anger because no country deserves to be treated that way”.
Trudeau pulled a “sophomoric political stunt for domestic consumption” that amounted to “a betrayal”, said Kudlow, who appeared on CNN’s “State of the Union” and CBS’ “Face the Nation”.

As expected, these countries are now retaliating with tariffs of their own that will hurt USA farmers, manufacturers and blue-collar workers, the same people who voted for Trump.
Mrs May told the Commons that she made clear to Mr Trump that the levies were unacceptable – but she underlined the need for dialogue to stop the dispute from escalating.
Mr Corbyn said the US President and his “American First” policy was squarely responsible for the breakdown in trade relations between the US and Europe.
Bruce Heyman, the former U.S. Ambassador to Canada, on Monday slammed Donald Trump’s treatment of Justin Trudeau, and Canada in general, demanding the president apologize for his surrogate’s claim there’s a “special place in hell” for people like the Canadian prime minister. Canada does indeed impose a 270% tariff on dairy that has kept many US dairy products from making their way from the U.S.to Canada. He said US representatives will examine the tariffs on automobiles coming into the country and bemoaned the Canadian tariffs that affect American companies and farmers.
