The motion calls on the House to recognize the importance of Canada's "long-standing, mutually beneficial trading relationship" with the US, "strongly oppose" the "illegitimate tariffs" imposed on steel and aluminum, stand "in solidarity" with the Trudeau government's decision to impose retaliatory tariffs and remain united in support of the supply management system of regulating Canada's dairy and poultry industry.

Spokesman Cameron Ahmad said on Saturday night that Mr Trudeau "said nothing he hasn't said before - both in public and in private conversations" with Mr Trump.

Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau's former foreign policy advisor, Roland Paris, slammed President Donald Trump for his inflammatory comments about Trudeau after the Group of Seven (G-7) Summit. He said Trudeau's promise to follow through with tariffs on United States goods - a response to Trump's own tariffs on steel and aluminum imports from Canada, Mexico, and the European Union - would hurt the Canadian economy.

Mr Trudeau, who had said at the news conference that Canada would retaliate over new U.S. tariffs, did not respond to questions about Mr Trump when the prime minister arrived at a Quebec City hotel on Sunday for meetings with other world leaders. "Obviously we support the continuing efforts by the President on North Korea", the Canadian prime minister said. "And Justin. And I said, "Oh that's nice, Justin's giving a" - And then he talked about how they won't be bullied".

"The picture with Angela Merkel, who I get along with very well, where I'm sitting there like this" - Trump said, crossing his arms - "that picture, I'm waiting for the document because I wanted to see the final document". "He didn't do that to my face, what's this all about?'" Navarro also said Trump attending the G7 in Canada was a "courtesy" to Trudeau and that the President had "bigger things on his plate" in Singapore. "It's very unfair, and it's very unfair to our workers, and I'm gonna straighten it out".

As he flew from Quebec to Singapore for a meeting with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un, Trump responded to Trudeau's comments on Saturday by withdrawing the United States from a joint document that summarized what was agreed to at the G-7 summit.

Trump's top economic adviser, Larry Kudlow, suggested that Trump saw Trudeau as trying to weaken his hand before the summit with Kim.

"It's very unfair to our farmers, and it's very unfair to the people of our country", he said. He learned. You can't do.

"We've had American tariffs that have been put in overnight, Mr. Speaker". For instance, Trump's steel and aluminum tariffs are expected to cause a drag on USA economic growth and result in a net loss of American jobs.

Trudeau kept silence after the personal attacks.

Trump's tough rhetoric for the leader of Canada, one of the United States' closest allies, was in sharp contrast with the words he chose to describe Kim.

"They pay only a fraction of the cost - and laugh", he wrote, adding that the European Union needed to pay "much more" to help fund the global military alliance, which comprises 28 members including the UK, US, Germany, Canada and Turkey.

The tweetstorm is the latest fallout from a bad-tempered G7 summit in Quebec, Canada, in which the President found himself at odds with numerous leaders present, largely over his planned tariffs on a range of goods, including steel and aluminum. Canada does have very big advantages over us in terms of trade deficits.

Trump again presented the USA as the victim of unfair trade deals during the interview with ABC on Tuesday. "We have been, our trade is a disaster, our trade deals".
