Democratic congressman to Trudeau: Stop &#039feuding&#039 with Trump more than trade

Democratic congressman to Trudeau: Quit &#039feuding&#039 with Trump over trade

A Democratic congressman chastised Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau on Sunday for &quotsabotaging&quot trade negotiations as the fallout from this weekend’s tense G7 summit continues, lending President Trump some bipartisan assistance as the war of words in between the two countries escalates.

Rep.&nbspRaja Krishnamoorthi, D-Ill., accused Trudeau of endangering the economies of both the U.S. and Canada.

&quotWhile I have severe concerns about President Trump&rsquos approach to trade talks with Canada, Prime Minister Trudeau has placed our trade connection with Canada at danger by publicly feuding with President Trump on the globe stage,&quot&nbspKrishnamoorthi stated in a statement.

&quotI have each and every need to see our negotiations with Canada continue productively and beneficially, but Prime Minister Trudeau is sabotaging that result in by driving both sides into their corners alternatively of encouraging a more diplomatic dialogue,&quot Krishnamoorthi continued.


The Illinois Democrat acknowledged that Trudeau’s tough talk with Trump may play nicely domestically, but said it would have longer-term negative implications.

&quotPrime Minister Trudeau could reap some political benefit by means of feuding with President Trump, but by engaging with the president on the terms he has so far, rather of on mutually productive ones, he is imperiling the financial nicely-becoming of millions of Canadians and Americans,&quot he added.

As President Trump was leaving the G7 summit onboard Air Force A single, Trudeau held a press conference in which he mentioned that Canada would not be &quotpushed about&quot by the U.S. on trade.

The move infuriated White House staff on Air Force One, simply because Trudeau had sent far more conciliatory signals while meeting with Trump in particular person throughout the summit, according to&nbspWhite Home Director of Trade Policy Peter Navarro.

&quotThere’s a unique location in hell for any foreign leader that engages in negative faith diplomacy with President Donald J. Trump and then tries to stab him in the back on the way out the door,&quot Navarro said on &quotFox News Sunday.&quot

&quotAnd that is what undesirable faith Justin Trudeau did with that stunt press conference,&quot he continued. &quotThat’s what weak, dishonest Justin Trudeau did. And that comes appropriate from Air Force A single.&quot

Trump reacted swiftly onboard Air Force 1 as it traveled to Singapore for the historic U.S.-North Korea summit.

Trump tweeted: &quotBased 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 firms, I have instructed our U.S. Reps not to endorse the Communique as we appear at Tariffs on automobiles flooding the U.S. Market!

He followed up by tweeting: &quotPM Justin Trudeau of Canada acted so meek and mild during our @G7 meetings only to give a news conference after I left saying that, &quotUS Tariffs were sort of insulting&quot and he &quotwill not be pushed around.&quot Very dishonest &amp weak. Our Tariffs are in response to his of 270% on dairy!&quot
