Mexico’s revenge over Trump tariffs disrupting oil industry, United States energy CEO says

Mexico’s revenge over Trump tariffs disrupting oil industry, United States energy CEO says

"Canada is a secure supplier of aluminum and steel to the USA defence industry, putting aluminum in American planes and steel in American tanks", Trudeau said last week.

Rebuffing the criticism down the line, Mr Trump reportedly shot back: "Didn't you guys burn down the White House?"

German Chancellor Angela Merkel said she expects "difficult discussions" at the summit in Quebec. But the White House has signaled no change in plans.

Christopher Sands, director of the Center for Canadian Studies at Johns Hopkins University, said Mr. Trump was particularly rankled by Ottawa's NAFTA outreach campaign, during which Canadian politicians and businesspeople fanned out across the country to encourage their American counterparts to lobby the White House to preserve NAFTA.

"There may be disagreements, I regard this as much like a family quarrel".

Trump also is set to hold a series of one-on-one meetings, including with Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau and French President Emmanuel Macron.

Trump has broken with allies on the Trans-Pacific Partnership, on the Paris climate accord and on the Iran nuclear deal.

However, the soldiers who burned down Washington were all expeditionary troops sent direct from Great Britain, unlike the local militias and Indigenous warriors who had done much of the fighting during earlier USA attempts to invade what is now Ontario.

The Trump administration said it needs to impose tariffs on steel and aluminum imports because overcapacity in those industries globally is hurting USA steel mills and aluminum smelters by driving down the prices of their products, forcing many out of business.

Kudlow said the Trump administration remains interested in the WTO and is working to resolve some of its trade disputes through the organization, but maintained its rulings would not determine US policies. "I think the president's made that very clear". The member countries are: Canada, France, Italy, Japan, Germany, the United States and the Britain. The EU also attends.

The economy and trade will be the first topic discussed at the two day meeting, and could disrupt work on other key initiatives.

Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin responded: "We believe in the G-7, it's an important group", adding that Trump looks forward to the gathering. They tried to have close relations with him. They're wonderful people, but we said, 'You can't do that anymore.

The Trump administration announced that it was moving ahead with 25 percent tariffs on imported steel and 10 percent tariffs on imported aluminum, sparking major backlash.

"The idea that we are somehow a national security threat to the United States is, quite frankly, insulting and unacceptable", Trudeau told NBC's Meet the Press.

When it comes to pork and other porcine products, Mexico is the biggest importer of goods produced in the U.S.by volume, and pork producers in the country will now be subject to a tariff of 20 percent on a range of goods, including pork leg and shoulder, and ham, according to a Mexican presidential decree that announced the tariffs.

"This is deeply offensive to Canadians", Alden said.
