Trump adviser says there’s a ‘special place in hell’ for Canadian leader

Last month, Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau announced his government would retaliate against Trump's tariffs by imposing import taxes on $12.8 billion worth of US imports in what Canada says its strongest trade action since the World War II.

"Please tell Prime Minister Trudeau and President Macron that they are charging the US massive tariffs and create non-monetary barriers", Trump said Thursday on Twitter.

Aside from making petulant complaints about Trudeau, Trump tweeted polemics against some of Washington's closest North Atlantic Treaty Organisation allies over issues loosely connected to the United States trade deficit, following a confusing G7 meeting in Canada.

He wrote on his Twitter profile: "Please tell Prime Minister Trudeau and President Macron that they are charging the U.S. massive tariffs and create non-monetary barriers".

On June 2, the Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau dubbed the trade tariffs "insulting and unacceptable" and announced that the country would impose its own tariffs on US' goods in retaliation.

"Canada does not conduct its diplomacy through ad hominem attacks ... and we refrain particularly from ad hominem attacks when it comes from a close ally", Ms Freeland told reporters in Quebec City. "Kim must not see American weakness", he said.

Sunday, Trump's chief economic adviser Larry Kudlow accused Trudeau of undermining the USA and its allies with comments he made at the G7 summit.

Trump fired back after Trudeau's press conference, blasting the Canadian leader on Twitter as "very dishonest and weak". "Our Tariffs are in response to his of 270% on dairy!"

His comment sparked a new diplomatic spat between Trudeau and the Trump administration and led Chancellor Merkel to criticize Trump's handling of the matter. "We make commitments and keep them".

Donald Trump has been busy attacking USA allies ahead of the G7 summit which begins today in the town of La Malbaie in Quebec.

"Canadians, we're polite, we're reasonable, but we also will not be pushed around". -Canada border. He said unleashing retaliatory measures "is not something I relish doing" but that he wouldn't hesitate to do so because "I will always protect Canadian workers and Canadian interests".

Trump lashed out at Trudeau after the G7 issued a joint communique on Saturday in which the embattled alliance managed to overcome some differences and find areas of common ground.

Trump swiftly responded to Trudeau by upending the communiqué in a series of tweets Saturday evening.

Kudlow says Trudeau's actions were a "sophomoric play" and says the prime minister stabbed his United States allies in the back, which he argues did a great disservice to the whole G7.
