(FOX NEWS) – President Trump landed in Quebec Friday for what is sure to be a tense G-7 summit amid a war of words with French and Canadian leaders over U.S. tariffs on steel and aluminum.

The Trump administration recently imposed a 25 percent tariff on imported steel and 10 percent on aluminum from Canada, Mexico and the European Union.

The move was met with a chorus of condemnation from leaders of the affected countries. The administration initially granted a temporary waiver to U.S. allies, but that relief ended this month.

But Trump, for whom trade has long been an issue close to his heart, has appeared to relish the battle, particularly with left-wing Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau — who has repeatedly criticized the tariffs in recent days. Trump says American workers have long suffered from bad trade deals, and that he plans to fix it.

“Canada charges the U.S. a 270% tariff on Dairy Products! They didn’t tell you that, did they? Not fair to our farmers!” Trump tweeted Friday morning.
