Canadian foreign minister won’t rule out sanctions targeting Trump Organization

Canadian foreign minister won’t rule out sanctions targeting Trump Organization

But it was just days ago that trade tensions between the United States and its second-largest trading partner escalated following the G-7 meeting after Trump and Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau engaged in a public spat.

Senators from both parties sought to mend a frayed relationship with Canada during a closed-door meeting Wednesday with Canadian Foreign Minister Chrystia Freeland.

U.S. -Canada relations have rarely been more strained.

Freeland also took the chance to raise the issue of U.S. tariffs on steel and aluminum, saying Canada will not escalate but that it will also not back down. Bob Corker said Freeland's position had the support of many Senators. Mexican President Enrique Pena Nieto tweeted "We did it!" and Trudeau also took to Twitter to say: "Congratulations to everyone who worked hard on this bid - it's going to be a great tournament!" "I've been called worse things by better people", the elder Trudeau replied.

The foreign affairs minister spoke to reporters in Ottawa and offered a markedly different tone from the attacks lobbed at Canada, one of the United States' closest allies, this weekend by President Trump and other members of his administration.

Earlier on Tuesday at the Washington conference, White House Council of Economic Advisers Chairman Kevin Hassett said the United States and Canada need to "take a deep breath".

"You may feel today that your size allows you to go mano-a-mano with your traditional adversaries and be guaranteed to win", she said.

In her remarks at a dinner sponsored by Foreign Policy magazine, Freeland acknowledged that many Americans "are no longer certain that the rules-based global order. still benefits them". "I have a good relationship with Justin Trudeau - I really did, other than he had a news conference that he had because he assumed I was in an airplane", the USA president said at a press conference.

"Donald Trump can, quite unpredictably, decide to blow up one aspect of the relationship or another", he told AFP, explaining that Canada had long worked to deepen ties with the occupant of the White House, but also with lawmakers in Washington and in key states, and with business leaders. Climate risk, carbon taxes, gender issues or any of the more ethereal "strange brew" advocated for by Prime Minister Trudeau in NAFTA are not in keeping with U.S. policy.

Canadian Foreign Minister Chrystia Freeland, in Washington on Wednesday, promised a "dollar-for-dollar response" to President Donald Trump's trade tariffs and said American businesses and consumers would pay a price for their country's protectionism.

"Given Canadians" well-known instability-their currency is called the "loonie'-there can be only one solution: We are going to build a wall from ME to Alaska-and Ottawa is going to pay". After Trump complained of a trade deficit with Canada, Trudeau said Canada would not be pushed around and threatened tariffs on American products.
