WASHINGTON President Donald Trump said on Tuesday he did not fear a trade war with Canada because of the trade dynamics between the two neighbours.

"They have a tremendous surplus with the United States, whenever they have a surplus I have no fear," Trump said during a White House meeting with farmers. "We have massive trade deficits, so when we're the country with trade deficits, we have no fear."
