Canadian politicians unite to support Trudeau after G7 Summit
Leaders of the G7 countries walked into a tense summit this past weekend, which was held after U.S. President Donald Trump said he would impose tariffs on Canada. Things escalated in an already heated trade war when Trump insulted Prime Minister Justin Trudeau over Twitter.
During a news conference after the summit, which was held in Charlevoix, Que., Trudeau reiterated he will impose retaliatory tariffs on steel and aluminium after Trump said he would do so first.
Trump then tweeted his frustrations, calling Trudeau “meek.” Larry Kudlow, who is the director of the National Economic Council under Trump’s administration, said there’s a special place in hell for Trudeau. Kudlow also said Trudeau stabbed Trump in the back because of his plan to implement retaliatory tariffs.
However, many Canadian politicians from different parties and other G7 leaders tweeted their support for Trudeau.
