Canada PM safe for now as Trump attacks, but angry farmers loom

President Trump's hardline trade adviser Peter Navarro on Tuesday backed off from his over-the-top attack on Justin Trudeau, in which he said there was "a special place in hell" for the Canadian PM for daring to criticize the president's policies. "That's what weak, dishonest Justin Trudeau did", Navarro said on the "Fox News Sunday" programme.

Earlier on Tuesday at the Washington conference, White House Council of Economic Advisers Chairman Kevin Hassett said the United States and Canada need to "take a deep breath".

"I own that, that was my mistake, those were my words". "We just shook hands!"' Trump said. I really did, other than he had a news conference, that he had because he assumed I was in an airplane and I wasn't watching.

Mr. Trump's complaint is that Canada-U.S. discussions went well behind closed doors at the G7 meeting in La Malbaie, Que., but Mr. Trudeau made it sound different in public.

"If you make a mistake, you should it admit it, learn from it, don't repeat it", Navarro said.

The Canadian Prime Minister initially said Trump's claims that Canadian steel posed a national security threat were dishonest.

The Trudeau hate began after the Prime Minister held a press conference and told reporters that the new US tariffs on steel and aluminum are "kind of insulting" and that Canada "will not be pushed around".

US extradites Panama ex-President Martinelli
On May 15 he asked the State Department to deny the extradition request, saying that he would be tortured in Panama . His return to Panama comes at a time of political turbulence as the country prepares for general elections in May.

Natural Resources Minister Jim Carr said Canada has worked hard for decades to establish good relations with the USA and "we have no interest in turning up the heat". "Canadians are polite, we're reasonable, but we also will not be pushed around", Trudeau added. Chrystia Freeland, the Canadian foreign minister, called them "inappropriate" and warned that ad hominem attacks are not a productive way to conduct worldwide relations.

The United States has alienated Canada and other allies by imposing tariffs on steel and aluminium imports, arguing that they posed a threat to U.S. national security.

In contrast, Trump was mostly smiles with North Korea's Kim Jong Un on Monday, and said talks between them were "top-of-the-line".

Trump has raised issue with what he says are unfair trade relationships. "It was very friendly", Mr Trump said. Still, Canada accounts for less than 3% of global trade, according to research firm Agri-Food Economic Systems.

Tensions between the United States and key allies reached new heights over the weekend as President Donald Trump attacked Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau for retaliating against a new set of tariffs.

On May 31 - the same day that the United States announced it would impose tariffs on Mexican steel and aluminum - the Mexican subsidiary of United-States-based multinational Whirlpool said its prices would rise across the board by 8% on July 1.
