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

Peter Navarro

U.S. President Donald Trump speaks to the media as he leaves the G7 Summit in the Charlevoix town of La Malbaie, Quebec, Canada, June 9, 2018. Top adviser Peter Navarro added further fuel to the fire, saying there is a "special place in hell" for the Canadian leader.

He added: "I actually like Justin, you know, I think he's good, I like him, but he shouldn't have done that".

Donald Trump's tirade against Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau's statement after the G7 summit may not have been related to Ottawa's stance on United States tariffs on steel and aluminum, Canadian based media The Star reported.

Trump travelled to Singapore from Canada, where he met other world leaders. Conspiracy theories, jokes and memes started bubbling up after the Canadian Prime Minister's eyebrows appeared uneven during his press conference with French president Emanuel Macron.

"Very disappointing and childish and unprofessional behavior [from Trudeau]", Gorka said while on Fox & Friends on Monday.

"In conveying that message I used language that was inappropriate and basically lost the power of that message", Navarro said at the Wall Street Journal's CFO Network summit.

Washington's decision to impose retaliatory tariffs on Canadian steel and aluminum tariffs on June 1, Trump tweeted, was because of Canada's high tariffs on some US imports.

Those comments came after Trudeau's closing news conference at the G7 summit in Quebec on Saturday, when the prime minister said he had pushed back against the Trump administration's hefty tariffs on steel and aluminum. Trump said it was snapped as they waited for changes he'd requested to the communique he ended up pulling out of.

"We are polite and reasonable", Trudeau said, "but we also will not be pushed around".

Another stumbling block was the part regarding climate change, where the USA didn't want to see any reference to the Paris Agreement, from which the Trump administration has withdrawn, The Star reported. According to a Canada release, they make nearly 100 Billion Dollars in Trade with US (guess they were bragging and got caught!).

Trump quickly fired back on Twitter, calling Trudeau's statement "very dishonest and weak" and claiming the prime minister had been "meek and mild" at the G-7 summit.

For Republican Senator Jeff Flake of Arizona, the president's response was simply the incorrect way to treat a key ally. We just shook hands.

He warned that the president's actions will have "lasting complications" and could put the U.S.'s place in the world order at risk.
