Trump Insults Canada In Private Phone Call With Trudeau Over Tariffs

The US Commerce Department says that constitutes a threat to US national security.

According to the sources, Trudeau pressed Trump on how he could justify the tariffs as a "national security" issue.

"Didn't you guys burn down the White House?"

The historical faux pas could be explained by the fact that the act was in retaliation to America's attack on York, Ontario - a British colony that eventually became Canada.

According to the Washington Post, the White House is not happy the Trudeau government is placing counter duties on U.S. imports, and is now considering imposing new financial penalties against Canada in the ongoing tariff dispute.

"The U.S. tariff on steel is affecting those workers today", said Scheer, who noted Canada's steel industry employs more than 23,000 workers and indirectly supports more than 100,000 jobs.

The US tariffs have been condemned by nations across the world, with Canada last week announcing it will impose tariffs on as much as $C16.6 billion of US steel, aluminium and other products from July 1.

Trade with the U.S.is particularly important to Mexico because about 80% of its exports go to its northern neighbor whereas only around 16% of USA exports come to Mexico.

He announced that Trump will hold bilateral talks with Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau and French President Emmanuel Macron.

In its initial reaction to the new USA tariffs on May 31, Mexico had said it would keep its retaliatory levies in place till the US government rolled back its decision.

When the British arrived at the White House, they found that President James Madison and his first lady Dolley had already fled to safety in Maryland.

"The United States must, at long last, be treated fairly on trade", the President tweeted on Saturday.

Mexico has imposed new import tariffs on US goods, including pork products. "Canada's position is, and always has been that the trilateral approach is actually better for Canada, for Mexico and for the United States".

The Trump administration placed a 25 percent tariff on steel and 10 percent tariff on aluminum with the aim of propping up us metals manufacturers.

Disruption to U.S. -Canada trade could also affect cross-border supply chains that have grown during the NAFTA era. Larry Kudlow, economic advisor to Trump, said Tuesday the administration wants to replace the agreement entirely, with separate trade deals with both the northern and southern neighbors.

"We do seem to be at a little bit of a Rubicon moment in terms of whether or not the United States is going to fundamentally turn its back on this economic order", said Thomas Wright of the Brookings Institution think tank in Washington.

If the WTO rules against the US, the E.U.is preparing billions more in tariffs.
