Navarro Voices Regret for Harsh Words About Canadian Leader

Navarro Voices Regret for Harsh Words About Canadian Leader

White House trade adviser Peter Navarro has apologized for saying that there was a "special place in hell" for Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, after Trudeau announced that Canada would be slapping "equivalent tariffs" on the United States.

"I own that, that was my mistake, those were my words", he said.

On Tuesday, Trump barely let up, telling reporters in Singapore, after his summit with North Korea's Kim Jong Un, that while the G7 summit was "good" Trudeau's critical comments would cost Canada "a lot of money".

Trump said Trudeau's comments at the final press conference at the tumultuous G7 summit in Charlevoix that Canada "will not be pushed around" on the issue of punitive USA tariffs on steel and aluminum will cost Canadians "a lot of money".

Before flying to Singapore, Mr. Trump was in Canada for the G-7 summit with leaders from Canada, France, Germany, Italy, Japan and the U.K. All seven leaders had worked out a joint statement stressing the importance of a rules-based global trading system.

Premier Wade MacLauchlan publicly expressed his support in the legislature for Prime Minister Justin Trudeau on Tuesday, in the wake of the growing U.S.

Trudeau and Trump clashed Saturday at the close of a meeting of the Group of Seven industrial countries.

"I will always protect Canadian workers and Canadian interests", Mr Trudeau said.




Trudeau spoke in mostly favorable terms about Trump but said that Canadians "will not be pushed around" and added that the Trump administration's national security justification for imposing tariffs on steel and aluminum imported from Canada is "kind of insulting".

Both aides accused Trudeau of betraying Trump when he gave a news conference after the U.S. president had departed. "In conveying that message I used language that was inappropriate".

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".

"It's very unfair to our farmers, and it's very unfair to the people of our country", Trump said Tuesday in Singapore.

Navarro said Trump "did the courtesy to Justin Trudeau to travel up to Quebec for that summit".

Trudeau's office responded to Trump's tweet saying "We are focused on everything we accomplished here at the #G7 summit".

"And I said, 'Push him around?'" Trump said, describing his reaction to the press conference. "We just shook hands!"' Mr Trump said. "The prime minister said nothing he hasn't said before - both in public, and in private conversations with the president". The relationship between the two leaders appears to have soured since comments were made regarding USA tariffs on Canadian steel and aluminum imports.
