In contrast, Trump was incredibly friendly during his historic meeting with Kim in Singapore on Tuesday, even giving the North Korean leader a thumbs-up.
Dairy Farmers of Canada president Pierre Lampron, which represents Canada's roughly 12,000 dairy producers, fired back Monday by blasting Trump's "personal attacks on our prime minister" and defending its supply-managed system.

The United States has alienated Canada and other allies by imposing tariffs on steel and aluminum imports, arguing that they pose a threat to USA national security.
Stoves, refrigerators, ovens, washers, driers and blenders are among the products that will soon become more expensive.
"We have a big trade deficit with Canada". But more importantly, he should apologize to the Canadian public. "He learned", Mr Trump said, wagging his finger.
