Trudeau has denounced the "national security" justification for the new tariffs.
Trump and the White House have not commented publicly on the report.
The thing is, the War of 1812 involved a conflict between the USA and Britain. "I'm always the optimist, I believe it can be worked out", Kudlow said. Despite the tensions, Trump is sticking to his guns, saying that the United States "must, at long last, be treated fairly on trade".
Kudlow also insisted that the United States relationship with Canada, in particular, was still "very good".
But observers noted that Trudeau's pointed rebuke last week, calling for "common sense" to prevail in the United States administration, marked a turning point for the worse in the relationship.

When asked if Trudeau took the comment as a joke, a source who was on the call told CNN: "To the degree one can ever take what is said as a joke". British forces burned down the White House and much of Washington, D.C., in August 1814 after Americans attacked York, Ontario, which was then a British colony.
"The numbers are clear: The United States has a $2 billion USA dollars surplus in steel trade with Canada - and Canada buys more American steel than any other country in the world, half of U.S. steel exports".
Kudlow added that the United States and China had not yet reached a deal to resolve Trump's demand for a smaller US trade deficit with China. "But let's also remember that these global rules have allowed all of our economies to prosper".
The problem with that remark is that British troops were actually responsible for burning down the White House during the War of 1812.
