Canada arrested Meng, the daughter of Huawei's founder, on December 1.
At Meng's hearing, defense lawyers presented documents that previewed some of the arguments they plan to make as the extradition case wends its way through the legal system.
The submission cited "corrosive" comments made by Trump, who has said he would intervene in the case if it would help secure a trade deal with China.
In addition, the lawyers claim that Meng's rights were violated when she was first detained at Vancouver airport last December. The U.S. has charged Meng with fraud, alleging she lied to banks to trick them into conducting transactions for Huawei that may have violated U.S. sanctions. "Her U.S. ordered arrest was unlawful abuse of process, one guided by political considerations and tactics, not by the rule of law", Howes said. Days later, two Canadians were detained in China in apparent retaliation.
"This case is about an alleged misrepresentation made by Ms. Meng to a bank that they relied upon, and in so relying, put their economic interests at risk", Gibbs-Carsley said.
Meng, who was released from jail in December on US$7.5 million bail and must wear a Global Positioning System tracker, an ankle bracelet and pay for security guards, has been living in a Vancouver home valued at C$5.6 million in 2017.

"We have trust in the Canadian legal process and we look forward to seeing Ms. Meng's freedom restored", Howes stated.

After the hearing ended, a Richmond resident was shouting outside the courthouse that whoever in Canada supports China should get out of the country, which angered a Chinese-language media reporter.
Huawei and Skycom are also defendants in the US case, accused of bank and wire fraud, as well as violating USA sanctions on Iran.
Meng's luggage was searched, her cellphone and other electronic devices seized, and she was compelled to reveal her passwords, according to Huawei. Canada doesn't have sanctions against Iran, so according to Canadian law, Meng's remarks to USA banks may not necessarily contravene Canadian laws.
She arrived at court, wearing an elegant full-length black and gray weave-pattern dress, with the ankle monitor prominently visible.
The disclosure application hearing is scheduled to begin September 23.
In addition, the judge changed Meng's bail terms and granted her to move from her 6 million, six-bedroom house to another of her homes which is worth $16 million and has seven bedrooms.
