Navarro apologizes for harsh comment about Canada PM

Earlier on Tuesday at the Washington conference, White House Council of Economic Advisers Chairman Kevin Hassett said the USA and Canada need to "take a deep breath". "I own that, that was my mistake, my words".

Trump said Trudeau's comments at the final press conference at the tumultuous G7 summit in Charlevoix that Canada "will not be pushed around" on the issue of punitive US tariffs on steel and aluminum will cost Canadians "a lot of money".

President Donald Trump's fight with Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau not only threatens to unravel the US's relationship with one of its oldest global partners, but also could significantly damage the USA economy.

On the eve of Mr. Trump's meeting with Mr. Kim, one of the president's top trade advisers, Peter Navarro, said there was "a special place in hell" for leaders like Mr. Trudeau, accusing him of engaging in "bad-faith diplomacy" with Mr. Trump.

President Trump is lashing out at Canada's Prime Minister Justin Trudeau over trade issues.

"At this hard moment in our history with our USA neighbors, Canadians need to know that all sides of this House stand united as one", Ms. Ramsey said Monday.

Trump also last week falsely accused Canada of burning down the White House during the War of 1812.

An escalating clash over trade between Washington and some of its closest global partners had loomed over Trump's historic summit meeting with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un on Tuesday.

In response to the initial tweets critical of her country and prime minister, Canada's foreign minister, Chrystia Freeland, said her nation "does not conduct its diplomacy through ad hominem attacks". "That's going to cost him a lot of money".

On Tuesday Trump reiterated his belief that the United States is "being taken advantage of by virtually every one" of the countries in the G7.

Mr Trump also explained the photo that went viral from the G-7 summit. He also justified the newly imposed tariffs on Mexico, Canada and the European Union citing national security concerns, which their oldest ally has evidently found to be "insulting".

The move caused consternation among other members, leading Trudeau to promise to "move forward with retaliatory measures" in a news conference scheduled after Trump had left. -Canada relationship in nothing but positive terms.

In reality, the United States has a small surplus with Canada when goods and services are considered - $341.2 billion to Canada's $325.9 billion, according to 2016 statistics from the USA trade representative.

Asked if these were statements from the President, Navarro said they were his words, but that they reflected "the sentiment that was on Air Force One".

Committee Chairman Bob Corker, R-Tenn., said Tuesday that he's "glad" that Navarro admitted that he misspoke.
