Peter Navarro's apology to Justin Trudeau for 'hell' remark

Angela Merkel speaks with Donald Trump at the G7 meeting

At a press conference Saturday, Trudeau recommitted to imposing retaliatory tariffs on USA goods in response to Trump's steel and aluminum tariffs.

President Donald Trump is still angry at Justin Trudeau for a perceived slight during a speech by the Canadian Prime Minister following the G-7 meeting.

The following day, Trump's trade czar Peter Navarro made scathing comments about Trudeau during an appearance on Fox News.

He said he was trying to send a signal of strength on behalf of the administration, but that his language was inappropriate.

"I have a good relationship with Justin Trudeau, I really did", Trump said.

"Justin probably didn't know that Air Force has about 20 televisions", Trump said.

His advisers went further, with White House trade adviser Peter Navarro saying there was a "special place in hell" for leaders like Trudeau who negotiate with Trump in bad faith. Kudlow said the president won't "let a Canadian prime minister push him around". He also said that it was "kind of insulting" that Trump used national security to justify the tariffs against a longtime ally, and announced that Canada would be implementing "equivalent tariffs" on July 1. He learned. You can't do that.

"I see the television and he's giving a news conference about how he "will not be pushed around" by the United States".

"I actually like Justin", Trump said.

As the Trump administration's war of words continued, many Americans began to point out on social media the many times Canada has helped the United States, while sharing personal stories on why they are thankful for their neighbours to the north, prompting the hashtag #ThanksCanada to trend on social media Monday morning.

"We should not be thinking about this in terms of people rallying around Trudeau, but around the office", said pollster Nik Nanos, chairman of Nanos Research Group.

"Defense Secretary Jim Mattis used an approach that aides say can work: 'He says, 'Your instincts are absolutely correct, ' and then gets him [the president] to do the exact opposite of what his instincts say, '" The Journal wrote, citing a person close to the White House. He also said Canada "will not be pushed around".

Scaramucci said that Trump's comments were meant to make a macroeconomic statement about the state of trade and further Trump's stated goal of improving life for the working and middle classes in the U.S. "And I think what people need to do at this moment is take a step back", Hassett said. He called on Trudeau to apologise to Trump.

Trump claimed it was Canada that blocked USA goods, with tariffs as high as 270 per cent on US milk, suggesting the American tariffs were pressure tactics unrelated to national security.

"Very dishonest and weak", he said. We have a big trade deficit with Canada.

"We've got to look at what supports are available to ensure that if their jobs, their livelihoods are compromised, what can the government do to support these folks".
