Trump’s Trade Adviser Apologizes for ‘Inappropriate’ Trudeau Comments

Immediately after his remarks Saturday, Trump blasted Trudeau's statement as "dishonest & weak" on Twitter and announced the USA would not be signing the joint G7 communique - a symbolic but unprecedented move.

President Donald Trump said Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau "learned" from the mistake of criticizing him and it's going to cost Canada "a lot of money".

"My job was to send a signal of strength", Navarro said Tuesday at a Wall Street Journal event. "And I think what people need to do at this moment is take a step back", Hassett said.

Donald Trump's trade adviser is apologizing for saying there's a "special place in hell" for Prime Minister Justin Trudeau because of his "bad-faith diplomacy" during the G7 summit in Quebec.

In a tweet posted Saturday evening, Trump said his decision to rescind support for the statement was based on "false statements" made by Trudeau during a press conference he gave, as well as "the fact that Canada is charging massive Tariffs" on USA companies.

Trudeau said after the G-7 meeting that the aluminum and steel tariffs imposed by the USA on Canada on national security grounds were insulting and that "Canadians are polite, we're reasonable, but we also will not be pushed around". Dems lack heir apparent this time MORE and Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, asking: "Trudeau or Trump?" "Our Tariffs are in response to his of 270% on dairy!", Trump wrote in a second tweet.

On 1 June, the U.S. imposed a 25% tariff for steel and 10% for aluminium on imports from the European Union (EU), Canada, and Mexico.

G7 leaders jumped to the defence of Trudeau and reiterated their support for their joint statement.

Scaramucci went on to say that Trump has great respect for Trudeau, likes him personally and thinks he is an effective leader - and that Canadians shouldn't read too much into Trump's personal attacks.

Trump is right to assail China for unfair trade, but doing the same with our closest allies is a mistake.

G7 leaders agree to joint communique: Trudeau
Discussing Russia's absence, Trump made the vague comment that "something happened a while ago where Russia is no longer in".

"[Trudeau] really kind of stabbed us in the back", Kudlow, the director of the National Economic Council who had accompanied Trump to Canada, said on CNN's "State of the Union". He was asked why he was jeopardizing relations with long-standing allies like Canada while welcoming a historical US enemy with open arms as a friend.

At his closing G-7 press conference on Saturday, Trudeau called United States steel and aluminium tariffs "insulting" and pledged to proceed with previously announced retaliatory tariffs.

While Navarro backed down from his attack, Trump did not, continuing on Tuesday to accuse Trudeau of acting in bad faith and trying to take advantage of the United States. At a rare solo news conference before heading to Asia, Trump said he pressed for the G-7 countries to eliminate all tariffs, trade barriers and subsidies in their trading practices. Trump addressed the feud following his meetings with Kim in Singapore at a more than hour-long press conference.

And Roland Paris, a former foreign policy adviser to Mr Trudeau, jabbed at Mr Trump on Twitter: "Big tough guy once he's back on his airplane". Sucking up to Russian President Vladimir Putin while hippie-punching Trudeau doesn't make Trump himself look stronger, either. You know they put out a document, I don't know if you saw it.

Trump, Trudeau swap jokes but hold firm in trade dispute
Canada and Mexico, the other members of the 1994 pact, have been frustrated by the slow pace of talks to renegotiate NAFTA. The leaders discussed the question of Russias inclusion in the group but reached no conclusion, Trump said.
