Trump Asks Trudeau: ‘Didn’t You Guys Burn Down the White House?’

Didn't Canada Burn Down White House? Donald Trump Asked Justin Trudeau

Donald Trump tired of Theresa May's 'school mistress' tone

Last month, when Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau called Donald Trump for a justification over hiked steel and aluminium tariffs, the US President presented a stupefying historical poser.

French President Emmanuel Macron on Thursday threatened to join other world leaders to issue a rare rebuke of the United States at a global summit here this weekend, drawing an immediate and sharp reply from President Trump. President Vladimir Putin's occupation of parts of the Ukraine in 2014, his illiberal tactics of rule, his crushing of the independent media, and a fall in oil prices made Russian Federation less and less likely as a member of a club of "industrialized democracies", and Moscow's membership was suspended in 2014.

Also new is an ongoing USA federal investigation into whether Trump's associates co-operated in Russia's efforts to sway the 2016 presidential election.

Trump and Trudeau are among the leaders meeting today at the G-7 in Quebec.

Trump appeared to have taken notice and pushed back: "Please tell Prime Minister Trudeau and President Macron that they are charging the US massive tariffs and create non-monetary barriers", Trump said in a tweet.

"Looking forward to straightening out unfair Trade Deals with the G-7 countries", Trump tweeted early Friday. Those in the USA who make that argument are typically counting third party goods imported into the U.S. through Canada, which Ottawa considers an unfair accounting.

The seriousness of the injury also means Lanzini is likely to miss the opening games of the 2018-19 Premier League season. The 25-year-old, who had been linked with a summer transfer to Liverpool, now faces a lengthy spell on the sidelines.

"If we don't react to this unilateral and illegal decision from the USA this would not be correct", Macron said at a joint news conference.

There is no doubt, though, that Trudeau is upset that the USA would invoke security concerns as justification for the tariffs.

"We are not going to live with the deals the way they are", Trump said.

The comments followed a string of tweets from the president railing against Canada, France and other European allies for what the president has described as an imbalanced trade relationship.

"Please tell Prime Minister Trudeau and President Macron that they are charging the US massive tariffs and create non-monetary barriers", he wrote.

Trump was referring to the retaliatory tariffs Canada slapped on the USA on a number of items totaling about $16.6 billion worth.

He was working as Director of Security for the SSCI, a position he held for approximately 29 years when he made false allegations. As part of the probe, the Justice Department took the unusual step of seizing Watkins' phone and email records.

Despite the tension, the president was greeted cordially by Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau as he arrived at the annual gathering, held this year at a picturesque Quebec resort.

Trump did not appear enthusiastic about the summit, complaining to aides about having to attend, particularly with his Singapore sit-down with Kim right around the corner.

White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders announced that Trump would be represented by Everett Eissenstat for the last sessions.

Trump's "America first" agenda triggered widespread criticism at the G20 summit previous year. France will host next year and the United States in 2020.

Conte's statement is one of the earliest clues as to what the new Italian government's foreign policy will be as Conte, who was sworn in one week ago, attends his first worldwide meeting.

Media reports of late have suggested Trump will be a reluctant visitor to Canada, given the summit's proximity on the schedule to next week's meeting with the North Korean leader.
