Trump's strategy appears aimed at returning the auto supply chain back to the U.S.

Foreign Affairs Minister Chrystia Freeland says work on renegotiating NAFTA will continue over the summer, following a meeting in D.C. with U.S. Trade Representative Robert Lighthizer.

"From Day One, we have said that we expected moments of drama and that we would keep calm and carry on throughout those moments", Canadian Foreign Minister Chrystia Freeland said Tuesday in Ottawa.

"That Canada could be considered a national security threat to the United States is inconceivable", said Prime Minister Justin Trudeau. As part of the bid, Trump pledged that those traveling to the United States for the tournament would not be subject to stringent visa restrictions. Trump reportedly pointed to specific trade deficits, particularly in the trade of goods, as evidence that the other leaders were taking advantage of the US.

Trudeau said he was preparing retaliatory measures against the United States. One man even tweeted a photo of his "Trump free" grocery cart filled with Canadian products.

At the recent G-7 Summit meeting in Quebec, the first such summit ever to fail to produce a joint communiqué, President Trump served notice to America's allies that his country had no shared interests that deserved precedence over boosting U.S.net exports.

Canada's CTV reports angry Canadian shoppers and travelers "are mounting strikes against America's pocketbook by boycotting USA goods and trips to the States" as the summer travel season begins.

Larry Kudlow, Trump's top economic adviser, echoed Navarro in a CNN interview also on June 10, saying that Trudeau's comments amounted to a "betrayal".


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

"The meeting on Monday in Singapore with respect to North Korea - that holds important potential for the peace and security of the world", Goodale told FOX Business' Stuart Varney Wednesday on "Varney & Co".

David Frum, a Canadian-American political commentator, said the tiff would only boost Trudeau's stature among Canadians.

Before the tariffs were imposed, Vice President Mike Pence called Canada's prime minister, Justin Trudeau, to demand a reworked NAFTA deal that would need to be renewed every five years.

Across the board - whether it's a government, business or security leader visiting the US - Canadian officials have been touting the importance of the US-Canada trade relationship, reaching out beyond the administration to Congress, statehouses and legislators.

"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.

Navarro said Canada has dumped lumber into the US and erected high barriers to harm wheat, barley, beer, spirits and dairy at a disadvantage. "But if history tells us one thing, it is that no one nation's pre-eminence is eternal".
