There’s a growing rift between the U.S. and one of its closest allies.

Trump Team Rips ‘Weak’ Justin Trudeau: ‘There’s a Special Place in Hell’
The Daily Beast
Andrew Desiderio
06.10.18 11:35 AM ET

President Donald Trump’s top economic and trade advisers on Sunday
doubled down on the president’s attacks on Canadian Prime Minister
Justin Trudeau, saying there’s a “special place in hell” for the
“weak” and “dishonest” Canadian leader.

The name-calling underscores the growing rift between the U.S. and one of
its closest allies over trade policies and tariffs, and it threatens to
further upend the progress on key economic issues that world leaders say
they made at the G7 summit over the weekend.

“There’s a special place in hell for any foreign leader that engages
in bad faith diplomacy with President Donald J. Trump, and then tries to
stab him in the back on the way out the door,” top White House trade
adviser Peter Navarro said on Fox News Sunday, echoing the president’s
similar attacks against Trudeau. “And that’s what bad-faith Justin
Trudeau did with that stunt press conference. That’s what weak,
dishonest Justin Trudeau did.”

Trudeau, whose country hosted the annual G7 summit, announced during the
summit that Canada was preparing “retaliatory measures” against the
Trump administration’s decision to impose new tariffs on steel and
aluminum imports from his country.

“I have made it very clear to the president that it is not something we
relish doing, but it is something that we absolutely will do, because
Canadians—we’re polite, we’re reasonable, but we also will not be
pushed around,” Trudeau said.

Larry Kudlow, the president’s top economic adviser, said the Canadian
prime minister’s words amounted to a “betrayal” and a “sophomoric
play” that makes the U.S. look weak ahead of the president’s summit
later this week with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un in Singapore.

“The non-factual part of this was they have enormous tariffs. I mean,
they have tariffs on certain dairy and food products of 290-295 percent.
He was polarizing. Here’s the thing: he really kind of stabbed us in the
back,” Kudlow said on CNN’s State of the Union.

Trudeau’s remarks set off a Twitter firestorm from the president, who
called Trudeau “meek and mild” in a series of tweets Saturday night.
The president also said the U.S. would not endorse the G7 communique, a
statement negotiated by all partners at the summit, and threatened even
more tariffs—this time, targeting automobile imports.

“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!” Trump wrote on Twitter.

The president’s tweets spurred responses from some of his biggest
critics when it comes to foreign affairs, including Sen. John McCain
(R-AZ), the chairman of the Senate Armed Services Committee.

“To our allies: bipartisan majorities of Americans remain pro-free
trade, pro-globalization & supportive of alliances based on 70 years of
shared values,” McCain wrote on Twitter. “Americans stand with you,
even if our president doesn’t.”

Despite the backlash, Navarro and Kudlow echoed the president’s initial
statements, underscoring the deep divisions that could threaten to upend
the U.S.-Canada relationship.

“To my friends in Canada, that was one of the worst political
miscalculations of a Canadian leader in modern Canadian history. All
Justin Trudeau had to do was take the win,” Navarro continued. “He did
him a favor and he was even willing to sign that socialist
communique—and what did Trudeau do? As soon as the plane took off from
Canadian airspace, Trudeau stuck our president in the back. That will not
stand.”

On Capitol Hill, Republican lawmakers—even the president’s staunchest
allies—have warned the Trump administration that moving forward with the
new tariffs will spark a trade war that the U.S. sure to lose. They’ve
also accused Trump of misusing his authority to impose tariffs under
Section 232 of the Trade Expansion Act of 1962, which allows the president
to designate certain imports for tariffs if he feels that they threaten
national security.

Sen. Bob Corker (R-TN), the chairman of the Senate Foreign Relations
Committee, has been among the most vocal critics of Trump’s penchant to
impose tariffs. He introduced legislation last week that would require
Congress to sign off on any tariffs that the president wants to impose
under Section 232.

“This whole thing feels like it’s getting out of hand to me. It feels
like everything’s becoming transactional,” Corker told The Daily Beast
recently.

South African Farmers to Trump: ‘Leave Us the Hell Alone’

President Trump’s controversial tweet calling for the State Department to review the supposed persecution of white farmers in South Africa has reportedly prompted a backlash from South African farmers. The topic took center stage at a land summit attended by farmers and South African officials this weekend, according to Agence France-Presse. “I think Donald Trump must really take his long hair... and leave our people the hell alone,” one South African farmer, Preline Swart, was quoted as saying. She added that the American president “just wants something new to talk about.” “He doesn't understand the South Africa situation. We have to inform him, we have to invite him to visit us,” said Andre Smith, another farmer. The South African government has also condemned Trump’s comments as “alarmist, false, inaccurate, and misinformed.” His comments, which were widely read as a nod to white supremacist claims that whites are being persecuted in South Africa, came in response to the South African government’s plans to redistribute land to correct a racial imbalance left over from apartheid.
