U.S. President Donald Trump talks to the media at the White House in Washington, U.S., June 1, 2018.
The spat undermines the ability of the U.S.to rally support for its push to correct China's unfair trade practices, said Michael Smart, managing director of Rock Creek Global Advisors in Washington and a former worldwide trade director on the National Security Council. "He's sticking to his guns". Larry Kudlow, Trump's top economic adviser, previewed the trip to reporters on Wednesday and dismissed the notion that Trump is reluctant to go to Canada. "The lines are open, the negotiations are ongoing". "The U.S. has been ripped off by other countries for years on Trade", he tweeted at the weekend, "time to get smart!"
"This is further weakening trans-Atlantic relations and increases the risk of severe turbulence in the markets globally", said European Commissioner for Trade, Cecilia Malmstrom.
Kudlow said the Trump administration remains interested in the WTO and is working to resolve some of its trade disputes through the organization, but maintained its rulings would not determine USA policies. "The impact on Canada and ultimately on workers in the United States won't be a laughing matter".
Sources claimed that the president invoked the War of 1812 when his Canadian counterpart asked him how he could justify the tariff change as a "national security" issue, which the administration had done under a 1962 trade law.
These developments make it more hard for any deal to be reached on the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA) that Trump has been trying to renegotiate with Canada and Mexico.
"I know we're going to have some very, very frank conversations quite clearly around the table", Trudeau told Global TV in an interview, adding he would convey Canada's displeasure over the metal tariffs personally when he met Trump in Quebec.

Those discussions are likely to focus on Trump's decision last week to impose punishing tariffs on imports of steel and aluminum from Washington's closest allies, including Canada, the European Union and Japan. Mexico had signaled last week that it meant to retaliate against the U.S. steel and aluminum tariffs. But U.S. shares rose on Wednesday.
He denied America's trade policies left it isolated from G7 allies, but warned that Trump would "stick to his guns" at the upcoming summit.
