British forces burned down the White House and much of Washington, D.C., in August 1814 after Americans attacked York, Ontario, which was then a British colony.

"We do not expect any breakthrough in the dispute with United States in Charlevoix", the official said.

"We know it works, we know it underpins a very integrated supply chain". Trump has recently said he'd be interested in negotiating separate bilateral trade deals with Mexico and Canada instead of updating Nafta.

"Capture and Burning of Washington by the British, in 1914".

Some White House officials are discussing additional economic penalties in response to the $13 billion in retaliatory tariffs Trudeau has promised, the Washington Post reported Wednesday.

Mr Trudeau, the summit host, and British Prime Minister Theresa May, who will also attend, are among those to sharply criticise the USA tariffs as unjustified and punitive.

"His (Trump's) statement was completely inaccurate", said Major Tanya Grodzinski, an associate history professor at the Royal Military College of Canada.

"And I would just say to all of Canada's American friends - and there are so many - seriously?"

Kudlow also insisted that the United States relationship with Canada, in particular, was still "very good". They tried to have close relations with him. "This is a unsafe course and should be abandoned immediately", Corker said in the statement.

USA tariffs and punitive actions taken by the European Union and Canada have widened the gap between leaders threatening the start of a trade war. Despite the tensions, Trump is sticking to his guns, saying that the United States "must, at long last, be treated fairly on trade".

There is no official reaction from the federal government, but earlier Prime Minister Justin Trudeau acknowledged there will be tough discussions at the table about tariffs.

VideoKey U.S. allies and trading partners voiced their anger with U.S. President Donald Trump's tariffs on steel and aluminum, and powerful donors within the Republican Party announced efforts to support free trade.

Mr. Trump's top economic adviser, Larry Kudlow, told reporters on Wednesday that the USA administration won't back down on the Trump trade and tariffs dispute with US allies. Canada, Japan, Germany, the United Kingdom, France and Italy (six of the G-7) are in accord in pushing back strongly against Trump's aluminum and steel tariffs, though concerted retaliation if necessary.
