Former Prime Minister Brian Mulroney was trying to calm the trade waters roiled by a dispute between President Donald Trump and Prime Minister Justin Trudeau following the G7 summit, comparing the tempest to a "serious summer squall".
En route to a Singapore summit with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un after leaving the G-7 meetings early, Trump attacked Trudeau's press conference with a series of tweets in which he called the Canadian prime minister "meek and mild" and "very dishonest and weak". He said the Canadian leader must not have realised that Trump had televisions on Air Force One, allowing him to monitor Trudeau's news conference at the end of the G-7 summit.
Trump's decision to impose tariffs on Canadian steel and aluminum, and Trudeau's promise to hit back, was the source of the conflict. "I have made it very clear to the president that it is not something we relish doing, but it is something that we absolutely will do because Canadians, we're polite, we're reasonable, but we also will not be pushed around", Trudeau said Saturday.
Some 75 per cent of Canadian exports go to the USA, making Canada uniquely vulnerable to a United States trade war. Hayden added that Trump's actions left him with "a mixture of sadness and, frankly, anger, because no country deserves to be treated that way".

However, following the summit, Trump tweeted that he was going not going to support the communique, leaving numerous United States' closest allies aghast.
US President Donald Trump said he and German Chancellor Angela Merkel were waiting for a final draft of a joint statement by G7 leaders when an iconic photograph was taken over the weekend showing the two leaders in what appeared to be a confrontation.
"To leave Canada the way that we did and to make the statements about a trusted ally like this is just wrong", Flake told reporters, according to ABC News. "It is essentially double crossing", Kudlow told CNN's Jake Tapper. "You know, we put out that picture".
Trump continued: "It was very friendly".
"There had to be an agreement someplace that the president clearly felt other members had clearly violated, or at least the prime minister had violated", Rounds said. "Any conversations about whether or not Russian Federation will come back around the table can not take place until Russian Federation has changed its attitude".
