But Trump's shots at Canadian prime minister Justin Trudeau and his general churlishness served no useful end. But he acknowledges that Trump might not realize he's jeopardizing U.S.jobs by triggering a series of tariffs and counter-tariffs with Canada.

"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". Our Tariffs are in response to his of 270% on dairy!" But the trolled Prime Minister had his staunch supporters too.

With politicians on both sides of the House supporting retaliation against penalties on Canadian steel and aluminum, John Ries, a professor with UBC's Sauder School of Business, says that might lead to US President Donald Trump backing off.

Theresa May has vowed that Britain will continue to work for worldwide agreement on issues like trade and security, following a G7 summit at which Donald Trump clashed with America's traditional allies.

"Canada has been restrained throughout in dealing with a temperamental president and I think all the way through we've avoided rising to provocation and tried to deal with the facts", said McKenna.

She said it had been "a hard summit with, at times, some very candid discussions" and that the United Kingdom would honour its commitments in the joint communique.

"But the conclusion I draw is that it is only through continued dialogue that we can find ways to work together to resolve the challenges we face". "$800 billion trade deficit", he said. These countermeasures amount up to 16.6 billion Canadian dollars (about 12 billion USA dollars) in imports of steel, aluminum, and other products from the Unites States, and are set to come into effect on July 1 this year.

Mr Trudeau and the European Union have vowed to take retaliatory action next month over U.S. tariffs on steel and aluminium. Trump said it was snapped as they waited for changes he'd requested to the communique, which he ended up pulling out of.

French President Emmanuel Macron's office reacted Sunday by saying that "international cooperation can not be dictated by fits of anger and throwaway remarks". We have put up with Trade Abuse for many decades - and that is long enough. "Tariffs will come way down", Trump said.

The EU then announced retaliatory tariffs on United States goods ranging from Harley-Davidson motorcycles to bourbon.

The US, Canada and Mexico have been working to renegotiate and modernise NAFTA since last summer, with the most recent round of talks held in Mexico City in March.

While the agreement of MPs who are normally opposed on most fronts was remarkable, the anger spread to pundits, officials, celebrities and ordinary citizens as Canadians vowed consumer boycotts of American goods and brainstormed insults of Trump on social media.
