"It would be with regret, but it would be with absolute certainty and firmness that we move forward with retaliatory measures on July 1 applying equivalent tariffs to the ones that the Americans have unjustly applied to us", Trudeau said.

"Our Tariffs are in response to his of 270% on dairy!" he added.
"Very dishonest & weak", Trump said, adding that recently imposed U.S. tariffs on imports of Canadian steel and aluminium were in response to similar measures imposed on American dairy products by Canada. The top source is the other NAFTA member, Mexico.
Instead of attending the 2019 G7 summit, look for Trump to attend the 2019 G2 summit with Putin in Crimea. Following the G7 summit in Canada's Quebec, Trump is en route to Singapore where he will meet with North Korean leader Kim Jong-un. Or we're going to make a deal directly with Canada and directly with Mexico.
Kudlow, in a separate TV appearance, said Trudeau was "polarizing" and "really kind of stabbed us in the back".
All the G7 nations have agreed at their summit in Canada on the importance of a "rules-based trading system", despite tensions with the US.
On 1 June, the U.S. imposed a 25% tariff for steel and 10% for aluminium on imports from the EU, Canada, and Mexico. "We win that war a thousand times out of a thousand", Trump said.
Trump trade adviser: ‘Special place in hell’ for Trudeau
What did Trudeau say to warrant Kudlow's claims? "They have tariffs on certain dairy and food products - 290 [to] 295 percent". He said the trade deficits that the us faces "with virtually every country in the world" is the fault of past leaders.
"Prime Minister Trudeau is being so indignant, bringing up the relationship that the USA and Canada had over the many years and all sorts of other things.but he doesn't bring up the fact that they charge us up to 300% on dairy - hurting our Farmers, killing our Agriculture!", Trump wrote in another tweet. Expressing his frustration, Trump said, " Can't do that.
"I did suggest it", Trump said.
The US president repeated his call for Vladimir Putin to join the other leaders around the summit table.
"He made an error", Kudlow said on CNN's "State of the Union".
On bringing Russian Federation back into the G7: "I think it would be an asset to have Russian Federation back in". Russian Federation joined the G-7 in the 1990s, making it the Group of Eight, but was expelled after its annexation of Crimea in 2014.
Mrs May has been at the forefront of diplomatic efforts to build an alliance against Russian Federation after the Salisbury nerve agent attack on ex-spy Sergei Skripal and his daughter Yulia. Kudlow said Trump won't let people "take pot shots at him" and that Trudeau "should've known better".
Trump's comments on Saturday came shortly after Trudeau, who was hosting the G-7 meeting in Canada, had projected an image of cooperation. "I don't understand the obsession with trade relations with Canada", he said, given that Canada is the biggest single buyer of American goods and services in the world. "I would say the relationship is a 10", he said, referring to leaders from Germany, France, and Canada, respectively. I blame our past leaders. I mean, we have India, where some of the tariffs are 100%.
