Trump’s Economic Adviser Hits Justin Trudeau’s “Betrayal”; His Being “Amateurish”

Known for his PR-savvy ways and calculated media projections, Canadian Prime Minister Justine Trudeau again called attention to himself with his grand -or grandstanding?- statements during the G7 summit held in his country, prompting President Donald Trump’s economic adviser to accuse him of stabbing the U.S. and fellow G-7 negotiators in the back with “amateurish” verbal attacks during a domestic press conference.

Larry Kudlow insists that Trump negotiated “in good faith” with his counterparts in the G-7 summit held in Quebec, Canada. Just that the President will not be pushed around especially by Trudeau and not at a time when Trump is on the cusp of a historic summit with North Korean leader Kim Jong-un, an event if only for the fact that it is materializing is already an enormous success for the world and for the U.S.

Kudlow told the media how he thinks Trudeau committed a misstep, if not excesses. He said: “He really kind of stabbed us in the back. He did a great disservice to the whole G-7.”

Trump in keeping with his America First policy- a campaign commitment he made- proposed to impose tariffs on steel and aluminum to stop the allies from “taking advantage of the U.S.” Trudeau publicly slammed Trump on that.

But Trudeau savagely waited for Trump to leave his country before he launched his tirade. After Trump’s departure, Trudeau held a press conference on Saturday stating that all the member nations, including the U.S. signed a communique promising to lower tariffs and other trade barriers.

Trudeau also added that he finds it “kind of insulting” that the U.S. imposed tariffs on steel and aluminum by invoking “national security” when Canadians “stood shoulder to shoulder” with American overseas wars.

Trudeau even dropped strong words. He said: “Canadians, we’re polite, we’re reasonable, but we also will not be pushed around.”

Trump, of course, did not let the remarks pass. He took to Twitter to answer Trudeau in a series of lengthy posts calling out Trudeau’s hypocrisy and arrogance.

<blockquote class="twitter-tweet" data-lang="en"><p lang="en" dir="ltr">Fair Trade is now to be called Fool Trade if it is not Reciprocal. According to a Canada release, they make almost 100 Billion Dollars in Trade with U.S. (guess they were bragging and got caught!). Minimum is 17B. Tax Dairy from us at 270%. Then Justin acts hurt when called out!</p>&mdash; Donald J.

<blockquote class="twitter-tweet" data-lang="en"><p lang="en" dir="ltr">….And add to that the fact that the U.S. pays close to the entire cost of NATO-protecting many of these same countries that rip us off on Trade (they pay only a fraction of the cost-and laugh!).

<blockquote class="twitter-tweet" data-lang="en"><p lang="en" dir="ltr">….Germany pays 1% (slowly) of GDP towards NATO, while we pay 4% of a MUCH larger GDP. Does anybody believe that makes sense?

The President then reiterated for his most recent tweet that friend or not, the U.S. and Americans cannot let them “take advantage of us on trade anymore.”

<blockquote class="twitter-tweet" data-lang="en"><p lang="en" dir="ltr">Sorry, we cannot let our friends, or enemies, take advantage of us on Trade anymore.

Trump ordered U.S. representatives not to sign the communique.

Kudlow also blamed Trudeau for busting up the G-7 with his remarks that reek of betrayal and are “sophomoric” in nature.
