Trudeau to Trump: Canadians Will Not Be Pushed Around


Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau commented on US President Donald Trump's imposition of tariffs on Canadian steel and aluminum during the G7 Summit in Charlevoix, Quebec, after President Trump left to meet Kim Jong Un in Singapore.

On Saturday Trump accused Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau of making "false statements" and said that the US will not endorse a G7 communique:

"Just left the @G7 Summit in beautiful Canada. Great meetings and relationships with the six Country Leaders especially since they know I cannot allow them to apply large Tariffs and strong barriers to U.S.A. Trade. They fully understand where I am coming from. After many decades, fair and reciprocal Trade will happen!" Trump tweeted after leaving the summit early.

"Canadians … stood shoulder to shoulder with American soldiers in far off lands in conflicts from the First World War onward," the prime minister said at a press conference at the end of the summit.

“Canadians, we’re polite, we’re reasonable, but we also will not be pushed around,” Trudeau continued.

'We will not be pushed around," the Canadian Prime Minister said.
