Trump has repeatedly suggested Canada was profiting from USA trade, and his blistering comments after the G7 meeting drove bilateral relations to their lowest point in decades.

Trump enraged Canada and other United States allies by declaring imported steel and aluminium a threat to America's national security.

Ottawa "had no choice but to announce reciprocal countermeasures to the steel and aluminum tariffs that the United States imposed on June 1", Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau told Trump in a call on Friday, according to a statement from his office.

"I never want to advocate for nations putting up tariffs that thwart economic growth and thwart job creation, either here or elsewhere, but that's what's happening between the United States and Canada", he said.

In a tweet, Trump boasted that his efforts to renegotiate trade pacts are "coming along very well".

"You know, I've been right across the country all day, starting in Leamington, Ontario, through Regina, Saskatchewan, and ending here, and the sun is a long way from setting, so we've got a lot of time to party still".

Canada on Friday hit back at the US with retaliatory tariffs on summertime essentials, including Florida orange juice, ketchup and Kentucky bourbon, in its opening salvo in a trade war with US President Donald Trump.
