Mr. Trump couldn’t wait to jump into another Twitter tirade as he headed to Singapore after leaving the G-7 Summit in Canada where he sparred with other leaders on trade. Just one week ago, Trump imposed a 25 percent steel tariff on Canada, Mexico, and the European Union, and a 10 percent aluminum tariff on the countries.
On Twitter, Trump blasted Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau in a crazed two-tweet rant, saying:
‘PM Justin Trudeau of Canada acted so meek and mild during our @G7 meetings only to give a news conference after I left saying that, “US Tariffs were kind of insulting” and he “will not be pushed around.” Very dishonest & weak. Our Tariffs are in response to his of 270% on dairy!’
Hours after Prime Minister Trudeau made a statement saying that he expected all of seven nations in attendance to sign on to the G-7 Communique, Trump tweeted that he was advising U.S. representatives not to do so. He said:
‘Based on Justin’s false statements at his news conference, and the fact that Canada is charging massive Tariffs to our U.S. farmers, workers and companies, I have instructed our U.S. Reps not to endorse the Communique as we look at Tariffs on automobiles flooding the U.S. Market!’
Trudeau’s office released a statement saying:
‘We are focused on everything we accomplished here at the #G7 summit.
‘The Prime Minister said nothing he hasn’t said before — both in public, and in private conversations with the President.’
Here’s what Twitter had to say to Trump:
