Canadian lawmakers unanimously accuse U.S. of attacking Trudeau

"In conveying that message I used language that was inappropriate".

"I own that, that was my mistake, those were my words". Asked if he were apologizing to Trudeau, he responded, "Yeah, absolutely".

"There's a special place in hell for any foreign leader that engages in bad faith diplomacy with President Donald J. Trump and then tries to stab him in the back on the way out the door", Trump trade adviser Peter Navarro said on "Fox News Sunday". "I'm pretty sure that circles of hell are not reserved for Canadians proposing retaliatory tariffs", Sen. Addressing reporters in Singapore ahead of Trump's summit Tuesday with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un, Pompeo said he was "unconcerned" that Trump's treatment of Canada - a close ally - boded poorly for his ability to forge peace with a longtime US adversary.

Trump's top economic adviser, Larry Kudlow, suggested Trump saw Trudeau as trying to weaken his hand before the summit with North Korea's Kim Jong Un, saying the president won't "let a Canadian prime minister push him around".

Trump's actions are being called ludicrous and absurd - but then again, coming from a man whose only experience before entering politics was as a businessman (with highly questionable dealings and tactics) and a reality TV show host, might not be all that surprising. Trump said he was surprised to watch Trudeau's press conference aboard Air Force One as he flew to Singapore. He was asked why he was jeopardizing relations with long-standing allies like Canada while welcoming a historical US enemy with open arms as a friend.

"But here's what the story is: We have been taken advantage of as a country for decades by friends and enemies both", Trump said.

Already rattled by President Donald Trump's steel and aluminum tariffs on key USA allies, GOP lawmakers were increasingly alarmed Monday by the administration's condemnation of the United States' neighbor to the north. We have a big trade deficit with Canada.

"Certainly having officials in one government criticize the head of government in another country, I don't think I've ever seen that before", he said. "Other than he had a news conference that he had because he assumed I was in an airplane and I wasn't watching".

Trudeau is not Trump's only target in the growing trade war with the other members of the G7, which is made up of Canada, France, Germany, Italy, Japan, and the UK. He learned. You can't do. "I had a very good meeting with the G-7". The prime minister, who has said Trump's tariffs were insulting, later retaliated through threatening to impose over $16 billion in retaliatory tariffs on a laundry list of American products. "We look forward to looking at the details of the agreement".

And the young Canadian leader, who has attempted to maintain a public facade of friendship with the U.S. leader, confirmed that he would regretfully impose retaliatory tariffs on U.S. goods from next month to offset the steel levy.
