White House trade adviser apologizes for inappropriate comments on Canadian PM

Canada looks to ride out Trump trade storm

Canada looks to ride out Trump trade storm

"My job was to send a signal of strength", he said at a Wall Street Journal CFO Network conference in Washington on Tuesday.

"I think that Justin probably didn't know that Air Force One has about 20 televisions", Trump said during a press conference Monday following his historic meeting with Kim Jong-un.

The motion calls on the House to recognize the importance of Canada's "long-standing, mutually beneficial trading relationship" with the US, "strongly oppose" the "illegitimate tariffs" imposed on steel and aluminum, stand "in solidarity" with the Trudeau government's decision to impose retaliatory tariffs and remain united in support of the supply management system of regulating Canada's dairy and poultry industry.

On Tuesday, Trump kept up the attack on Trudeau.

"There is 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", he said.

Larry Kudlow, Trump's top economic adviser, echoed Navarro in a CNN interview also on June 10, saying that Trudeau's comments amounted to a "betrayal".

Trump fired off a volley of tweets on Monday further venting anger at North Atlantic Treaty Organisation allies, the European Union and Trudeau. He's expected to make a full recovery. "We just shook hands!'" Trump said Tuesday. Trump often hurls personal insults, without apology, from calling Mexican undocumented immigrants "rapists" to mocking a reporter with a disability on the campaign trail.

Andrew Mannino's dash cam captured the shocking sight of the toddler running all by himself in the right lane of the highway. Mannino then alerts dispatch that he has him and would begin searching for his parents.

Still, the potential US fallout could make the tariffs a hard sell to Trump's manufacturing base, said Jerry Dias, national president of Unifor, which represents Canadian autoworkers at GM, Ford and FCA.

Several leaders from the G-7 meeting - including Germany's Angela Merkel, Britain's Theresa May and France's Emmanuel Macron - either expressed support for Trudeau or criticized Trump.

PM Justin Trudeau of Canada acted so meek and mild during our @G7 meetings only to give a news conference after I left saying that, "US Tariffs were kind of insulting" and he "will not be pushed around". European Council President Donald Tusk tweeted: "There is a special place in heaven" for Trudeau.

Trudeau is staying out of the fray, trying to forge ahead on a revised North American Free Trade Agreement as his country and key allies rally around him in the face of unprecedented criticism from his neighbor and chief trading partner. "It was very friendly". He learned. That's going to cost a lot of money for the people of Canada.

"What I've learned from this is that, particularly in my role, as a presidential adviser, what we need to do, and what I need to do, is simply focus on the serious policy differences and issues", Navarro said.

"There's been a lot of emotional action on all sides".

"I have made it very clear to the president that it is not something we relish doing, but it is something that we absolutely will do, because Canadians, we're polite, we're reasonable, but we also will not be pushed around", Trudeau said.
