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

Consul-General Yaffee at WITF 600

Before the apology, some US lawmakers on Tuesday questioned the strong language the White House and Trump have used toward Canada in contrast to the praise he gave North Korea at Tuesday's summit in Singapore.

You know, the same countries he called "very hard".

President Trump is accusing the country's prime minister of making false statements, and the president's trade adviser saying there's "a special place in hell" for the leader of Canada, our biggest trading partner in all of the world, our best friend from way back in World War II and every time in between. "The Canadians will regret this action by their prime minister", Gorka said.

With NAFTA negotiations on uncertain ground, who should be responsible for toning down the fiery rhetoric between these two countries?

"We all know we will be strongest with America in our ranks - and indeed in the lead", she said.

The Office of the United States Trade Representative's notes that the United States had an $8.4 billion trade surplus with Canada in 2017. It also acknowledges that they stand by the Trudeau government's retaliatory tariffs and other trade measures. The motion acknowledges the close and mutually beneficial relationship between Canada and the United States, but says they "strongly oppose" the "illegitimate tariffs" now imposed by our southern neighbours. The big question Canada and the European Union must answer for themselves, now, is whether Trump is an unfortunate temporary anomaly, or merely the first in a coming succession of "America First" presidents. Will the defense relationship continue? No, I have a good relationship with Justin Trudeau.

Earlier, Trump elaborated on his abrupt Twitter outburst as he departed the summit Saturday, telling a news conference in Singapore that Trudeau's assertion that Canada "will not be pushed around" would end up costing Canadians "a lot of money".

Later Wednesday evening during a major foreign policy speech, Canada's top diplomat broadened her focus with a sweeping defence of something Trump has little time for - the worldwide rules-based system that the US led in creating after the Second World War.

On Wednesday, it was officially confirmed that the United Bid, which includes Canada, Mexico, and the U.S., would be hosting the FIFA World Cup 2026.

"The whole approach has comprehensively changed by necessity, and it's one that's holistic and nonpartisan", said one official. They didn't want me to see it, but we found it.

Even the Prime Minister has made an effort to reach out to Congress.

"Also hockey is cool", he added.

NDP Leader Jagmeet Singh urged the federal government to get serious about drafting a rescue plan for steel and aluminum workers, who are going to feel the brunt of the initial impact of the dispute - and soon.

Asked if he were apologizing to Trudeau, he responded, "Yeah, absolutely".

The division between world powers created some new unity within the country.
