Trump's trade adviser apologizes for saying Trudeau has 'special place in hell'

Trump's trade adviser apologizes for saying Trudeau has 'special place in hell'

After leaving the summit early, Trump tweeted he was pulling USA support from a joint statement and he accused Trudeau, the summit's host, of being weak and dishonest during a news conference.

Navarro's original statement, on "Fox News Sunday", followed a pair of tweets in which Trump raged about comments Trudeau made at a news conference after a summit of the Group of Seven industrialized nations.

"Thousands of Canadian workers and communities rely upon trade with our closest neighbor and ally, and it is incumbent for the entirety of Parliament to show stability and a united front, in these turbulent times", Ms. Ramsey said in a statement.

"We are aware that an investigation on autos under section 232 has been initiated", Freeland said referring to the same process that eventually led to the Trump administration imposing tariffs on steel and aluminum imports from Canada, Mexico and the European Union, citing "national security" grounds.

Trump called Trudeau "dishonest" and "weak" in tweets following the summit on Saturday.

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

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

The backstabbing charge seems over the top, but the White House's contention is that Trudeau ought to have capped the G-7 summit by talking about Trump and the U.S. U.S. President Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong-un held the historic meeting between leaders of both countries on Tuesday morning in Singapore, carrying hopes to end decades of hostility and the threat of North Korea's nuclear programme.

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.

"And just like sometimes in the rap community they have their own urban dictionary, the president has his own Trump dictionary, if you will".

Also on Monday, former Trump aide and a former Breitbart editor Sebastian Gorka criticized Trudeau, calling him "childish".

He said Trump agreed with the fairly generic trade language in the communique drafted by the G7 leaders, who are traditionally America's closet allies. "According to a Canada release, they make nearly 100 Billion Dollars in Trade with USA (guess they were bragging and got caught!)".

Committee Chairman Bob Corker, R-Tenn., said Tuesday that he's "glad" that Navarro admitted that he misspoke.
