MP Asks Theresa May An Awkward Question: 'Trudeau or Trump?'

Graham: It would be a ‘mistake’ to readmit Russia to G-7 | TheHill

"Let me correct a mistake I made", White House economic advisor Peter Navarro was quoted as saying at a Washington event organized by The Wall Street Journal. "In conveying that message I used language that was inappropriate".

President Donald Trump reprised his criticism of Canada's prime minister Tuesday, threatening that Justin Trudeau's tough exchanges with him over trade policy would "cost a lot of money for the people of Canada".

While making no direct criticism of Mr Trump, Mrs May told MPs: "This was a hard summit with, at times, some very candid discussions, but the conclusion I draw is that it is only through continued dialogue that we can find ways to work together to resolve the challenges we face".

The United States has alienated Canada and other allies by imposing tariffs on steel and aluminum imports, arguing that they pose a threat to US national security.

Heading into the G7 summit in Canada in the characteristically bullish mood, Trump had promised he would pull off the sort of trade deal that only he, the world's greatest dealmaker, could make. "Kim must not see American weakness". Trump tweeted on Saturday.

Bruce Heyman, who was US ambassador to Canada during President Barack Obama's administration, called on Navarro in a tweet to formally apologize to Trudeau for his "insulting and inappropriate remarks".

In response to the massive steel and aluminium tariffs imposed by the Trump administration, Canada which is one of the largest exporters of the same spoke out against the exorbitant duties.

Britain's Prime Minister Theresa May takes a question as she addresses the final news conference of the G7 summit in the Charlevoix city of La Malbaie, Quebec, Canada, June 9, 2018.

Heyman waged a campaign on Twitter to persuade Navarro to apologize by saying he was contacting USA politicians about his remarks.
