Douglas George, the Consul General of Canada in Detroit, joined Stateside to tell us more about what this might mean for trade between MI and Canada.
Already rattled by President Donald Trump's steel and aluminum tariffs on key US allies, GOP lawmakers were increasingly alarmed Monday by the administration's condemnation of the United States' neighbor to the north.
Yet his top diplomat, Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, downplayed the severity of the rift.
"According to a Canada release, they make nearly 100 Billion Dollars in Trade with U.S. (guess they were bragging and got caught!)".
"There's a special place in hell for any foreign leader that engages in bad faith diplomacy with President Donald J Trump and then tries to stab him in the back on the way out the door", Peter Navarro said.
It was Trudeau's closing statements at the end of the G7 summit in La Malbaie QC that apparently prompted the petty insults and angry reaction from Trump. Among other things, she said the government should be preparing to keep pace with corporate tax cuts and tax breaks south of the border. He did him a favor, and he was even willing to sign that socialist communique.
During a news conference, Trudeau had reasserted his opposition to USA tariffs on steel and aluminium, and vowed to press ahead with retaliatory moves on July 1.

The prime minister, who has said Trump's tariffs were insulting, later retaliated through threatening to impose over $16 billion in retaliatory tariffs on a laundry list of American products. Can't do it in person. "Obviously, we don't want to be held hostage to these tariffs Donald Trump has arbitrarily put in place, but there are other things that we would like to see in terms of advancing the free trade agenda".
"I want to pay a particular tribute to Prime Minister Trudeau for his leadership and skilful chairing, which enabled us after two days of negotiation between leaders to agree actions and a shared approach on some of the most pressing challenges facing the global community and our citizens", she told parliament.
Former Conservative cabinet minister James Moore, a member of the government's advisory group on NAFTA, hailed Trudeau's approach, refusing to react to "the noise, the bluster, the Twitter, the emotional outbursts". From promoting democracy and to fighting terrorism, "we're on the same page". We protect Europe (which is good) at great financial loss, and then get unfairly clobbered on Trade.
