Trudeau on Trump: we support North Korea efforts, won't engage on comments

Last Friday, Trump - feeling slighted by Trudeau, who took a tough stance toward USA tariffs by saying he wouldn't tolerate being "pushed around" - launched an attack via Twitter, calling the leader "dishonest" and "weak".

White House trade adviser Peter Navarro has apologized for saying Justin Trudeau earned "a special place in hell" with his response to Donald Trump's complaints about US-Canada trade.

"My mission was to send a strong signal of strength".

He made the comments Tuesday at an event of The Wall Street Journal CFO Network in Washington.

"And that's what bad faith Justin Trudeau did with that stunt press conference", he said.

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

"We finished the meeting, really, everybody was happy, and I agreed to sign something", Trump told reporters at a news conference following his summit with Kim Jong-un in Singapore.

"That's going to cost a lot of money for the people of Canada; he learned", Mr Trump said wagging his finger.

Navarro then went on Fox News and harshly criticized Trudeau in one of the fiercest attacks aimed at a foreign head of state by a relatively obscure administration official.

The United States opened AIT shortly after terminating formal ties with Taipei - a diplomatic workaround that has irked Beijing. The AIT represents USA interests in Taiwan in the absence of official diplomatic ties.

"Canadians are polite and reasonable but we will also not be pushed around", he had said.

Navarro's comments came the day after Trudeau vowed not to be "pushed around" by the U.S.in response to Trump's decision to impose stiff tariffs on Canada.

'I used language that was inappropriate and basically lost the power of that message, ' says Navarro.

Margaret Wente: Donald Trump has finally made us mad. "I own that, that was my mistake, my words", the trade adviser said.

The Rust Belt has been one of the hardest regions hit because of USA free trade with Mexico.

"I think it's a very fair question", he said.

The motion, which Reuters noted was introduced by the opposition New Democrats, "rejects disparaging ad hominem statements by the U.S. Administration which do a disservice to bilateral relations and will fail to resolve this trade dispute".

Heyman added he's "of course ... embarrassed" about Trump's behavior during the G-7 meeting, arguing the United States "was doing everything it could do to disrupt this meeting". The US president and Mr Trudeau have had a friendly relationship in the past, but tensions over US tariffs have strained the diplomatic partnership.

"We are being taken advantage of by virtually every one of those countries", Trump told a news conference on Tuesday.
