White House aide apologises over 'special place in hell' comment

Chrystia Freeland, the Canadian foreign minister, called them "inappropriate" and warned that ad hominem attacks are not a productive way to conduct global relations. "Canadians are polite and reasonable but we will also not be pushed around", he said.

The comments dashed hopes that Trump had moved on from what he believed to be was a "dishonest" action by Trudeau.

In addition to rejecting the insults aimed at Mr. Trudeau, the measure passed Monday said that lawmakers "strongly oppose the illegitimate tariffs imposed by the usa government against Canadian steel and aluminum workers" and "stand in solidarity with the Government of Canada in its decision to impose retaliatory tariffs".

Navarro had told Fox News on Sunday that there was a "special place in hell" for the Canadian prime minister that "engages in bad-faith diplomacy" with U.S. President Donald Trump. "In conveying that message I used language that was inappropriate".

At an event hosted by the Wall Street Journal, Mr Navarro said he had made a mistake.

MacLauchlan said he supported the Prime Minister's retaliatory tariffs in response to US tariffs on Canadian steel and aluminum and called on opposition parties to join him in expressing support for the federal government.

Freeland said she had a "good conversation" Sunday with US Trade Representative Robert Lighthizer, and that the pair would try to meet in Washington this week. Trump's steel tariffs and threats to tax auto imports, among other protectionist policies, have strained relations with America's closest allies, including Canada, with whom the administration has been struggling to re-negotiate NAFTA. "It was very friendly", Trump said. "And in fact the picture with Angela Merkel, who I get along with very well, where I'm sitting there like this. we're waiting for the document because I wanted to see the final document as changed. And it won't even be tough". There was no immediate response to the apology from Trudeau. He also met privately with dairy farmers in his office. The government has proposed $16.6-billion tariff package, in retaliation for the Trump administration's decision to impose 25 per cent import duties on steel and 10 per cent on aluminum.
