Trump to face tough crowd at G-7 amid tariff fight

Did Canadians burn down the White House?

Our friends are friends.

In its announcement, the Mexican government said "it is necessary and urgent to impose measures equivalent to the measures implemented by" U.S. to protect Mexican industries.

"Right now, it looks like it's turning to a protracted legal fight", Powers said in a phone interview from Washington, D.C. Tuesday. President Trump believes it "rips off" America and reduces US power.

The conflict was provoked by a decade of British provocations against the USA, including impressing American sailors, imposing restrictions on American trade and providing support for Indian attacks on frontier settlements.

Trump's words and acts are expected to make for an awkward G7 summit Friday and Saturday in Quebec.

Other issues threaten to heighten tensions within the group.

It's not only G7 allies that have been alarmed by Trump's money-centric view of US alliances.

Of the nearly $6.5 billion worth of pork exports from the U.S.in 2017, nearly a quarter - over $1.5 billion - was imported by Mexico, data from the U.S. Department of Agriculture showed. The move followed failed attempts to settle what the administration said are national security concerns about the foreign-made metals.

Trump has broken with allies on the Trans-Pacific Partnership, on the Paris climate accord and on the Iran nuclear deal. Ryan has said NAFTA's biggest problem "comes from the north".

The U.S. announced tariffs on Canadian and Mexican steel and aluminum after talks stalled on a renegotiation of the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA).

Pierre Lampron, president of the Dairy Farmers of Canada, said in a letter to Trudeau Monday the prime minister's comments were "quite worrisome", and "deeply troubling for our dairy farmers", given repeated pledges of support by Trudeau and his lawmakers for the sector.

Both Trudeau and Freeland have appeared on major American television networks in the past week to criticize the US tariffs as "unacceptable" and "illegal".

"The president is at ease with all these tough issues", said Larry Kudlow, director of the National Economic Council.

But to the US president, any mention of Russian election interference is "fake news" and an attack on his legitimacy.

Both Trudeau and Macron had tried to persuade Trump not to impose the tariffs. "Trump delivering well beyond what Putin had ever hoped for", Michael McFaul, a USA ambassador to Russian Federation under Obama, said on Twitter.

The Treasury Department wants President Donald Trump to rely on legislation to tighten scrutiny of Chinese investments in the U.S. instead of an executive move imposing sweeping new limits, according to three people familiar with the matter.

If the WTO rules against the USA, the E.U.is preparing billions more in tariffs.

Allies do not appear to have figured out an effective way to deal with such a president.

The survey conducted by Politico and Morning Consult shows that 35 percent of voters think that these tariffs will help boost the economy, while about 45 percent of voters said that they believe these tariffs will harm the economy. "When you're doing business, you take people to the brink of breaking them without having them break, to the maximum point their heads can handle - without breaking them".
