Many Canadians are cancelling their American vacations as means of voicing their opposition to President Donald Trump’s decision to impose tariffs on Canadian products and his attack on Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau.

Last weekend, President Trump attended a G7 meeting in Canada. It was a tense event since the Trump administration recently imposed stiff tariffs on other member nations. After the meeting, President Trump further upset world leaders when he announced, via Twitter, that the United States would withdraw from supporting the G7 communique created over the course of the weekend.

The president tweeted on Saturday: “Based on Justin’s false statements at his news conference, and the fact that Canada is charging massive Tariffs to our U.S. farmers, workers and companies, I have instructed our U.S. Reps not to endorse the Communique as we look at Tariffs on automobiles flooding the U.S. Market!”

Based on Justin’s false statements at his news conference, and the fact that Canada is charging massive Tariffs to our U.S. farmers, workers and companies, I have instructed our U.S. Reps not to endorse the Communique as we look at Tariffs on automobiles flooding the U.S. Market!

The president pinned the blame for the G7 debacle on Canada’s Justin Trudeau. Trudeau has publicly repudiated the president’s recent decision to impose steel and aluminum tariffs on his country.

In the aftermath of the president’s withdrawal tweet, his surrogates quickly joined him in railing against Trudeau. Trump economic adviser Larry Kudlow said, Trudeau, “stabbed us in the back.”

Peter Navarro said  “there is a special place in hell” for Trudeau.” Navarro has since apologized for the language he used but not the sentiment he expressed.

Canadians are responding by boycotting U.S. made products and canceling vacations in the United States. Many Canadians have chosen to avoid American companies like Starbucks, Walmart, and McDonald’s. Canadians are also avoiding the purchase of Kentucky bourbon, California wine, and Florida oranges.

Twitter hashtags like #BuyCanadian, #BoycottUSProducts, and #BoycottUSA are growing in popularity.
