Trudeau Is ‘Overreacting’ to Trump Tariffs, Kudlow Says

The president said the tariffs being charged against other countries would help to fund the USA government, and repeated his refrain that the us could not lose a trade war in a global climate where the rules were already stacked against American business. "War in trade is not good", she said. "In this case, it is simply a response to a first action", Guajardo told Mexican radio.

"Giving into this, the only language that Trump understands, is people fighting back, and it's about time this country fought back", he said. "There's some early signs that that may be possible", Kudlow said.

"We're concerned that these actions are actually not conducive to helping our economy, they actually are destructive, and that is consistently held across the six countries that expressed their point of view to Secretary Mnuchin", Canadian Finance Minister Bill Morneau said at a news conference after the meeting ended in the Canadian mountain resort town of Whistler, British Columbia.

President Donald Trump changes his mind often enough that the closest U.S. Allies and some adversaries hope he'll do just that on tariffs in the next few days.

Mexico announced penalties on US imports like pork, fruit, cheese, and steel, while the European Union said it would announce its retaliatory measures in June.

"We are seeing steel coming from destinations where the industry is frankly not used to seeing it" the steel association president said.

"This is a really sad time for us".

Sensing he was losing leverage, Trump ripped up that playbook and moved to impose the steel and aluminum tariffs immediately.

Let's make sure regardless of what happens with tariffs, we don't lose our competitiveness.

The U.S. Treasury Secretary, at the meeting, stressed the need for fair and balanced trade. A Pew Research Center poll shows that only 36 per cent of Republican voters think free trade has been of net benefit to the U.S.

Calling Trump a "trade reformer", Kudlow said the president has been committed to protecting USA workers and jobs from a trade system that "is not working" ever since "day one" of his administration.

The United States had sought to use the tariff threat as a cudgel to win concessions from Canada and Mexico in talks to renegotiate NAFTA, offering the two US neighbors a permanent exemption if they agreed to USA demands.

Finance leaders of the G7 group of big economies vented anger over the Trump administration's metal import tariffs on Saturday, ending their three-day meeting with a stern rebuke.

But after totaling the value of Canada's list of U.S. goods subject to tariffs using import data, Business Insider found that the value of these exports is equal to roughly just over $15 billion USA dollars, or 19 billion Canadian dollars.

Business leaders in Canada and the USA predicted dire economic consequences as result of the decision, which was derided on both sides of the Atlantic. Their largest market is Mexico, which announced plans to target USA apples.

"I don't think in any way the U.S. is abandoning its leadership in the global economy, quite the contrary".

The North Dakota Trade Office's executive director Simon Wilson said he's been getting lots of calls from businesses who are anxious.
