Trump lashes out at U.S allies
United States President, Donald Trump, has fired off a string of angry tweets criticising America’s closest allies hours after leaving a divisive G7 summit in Canada.
Mr. Trump said the U.S paid “close to the entire cost of Non-Alliance Treaty Organisation (NATO)” to help protect countries that “rip us off on trade.”
“Fair trade is now to be called fool trade,” he added in response to the threat of new tariffs against the U.S.
The BBC reports that Canadian Prime Minister, Justin Trudeau, has vowed retaliatory action next month over U.S tariffs on steel and aluminium.
Mr. Trump has also attacked Mr. Trudeau personally, suggesting the Canadian prime minister is “very dishonest and weak” and “acts hurt when called out.”
