Navarro apologizes for harsh comment about Canada PM

Canada rallies to Trudeau after Trump's insult

Things got worse for trade between the US and Canada as our neighbors to the north announced retaliatory tariffs in response to the Trump administration's tariffs on steel and aluminum from Canada and other USA allies.

Mr Trump left the meeting early before firing off a series of scathing tweets about his Canadian counterpart after Mr Trudeau said his country would not be pushed around by United States trade restrictions. Very dishonest and weak. We laughed. We had a very good relationship.

It says that MPs "reject disparaging ad-hominem statements by USA officials, which do a disservice to bilateral relations and work against efforts to resolve this trade dispute".

In a rare show of unity, Opposition Members of Parliament are standing behind Prime Minister Justin Trudeau's promise to fight new tariffs from the United States.

At a news conference Tuesday after his summit with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un, Trump recounted his recent tough exchanges with Trudeau. "Canadians, we're polite, we're reasonable, but we also will not be pushed around".

Despite his conservative rivals snapping at his heels in polls, Trudeau has seen Canadian politicians from across the spectrum close ranks around him after Trump threatened to slap tariffs on the automobile sector, which would mark a dramatic escalation in the trade spat. "He learned", Trump said wagging his finger.

Ries says it could take a while for Canadian consumers to suffer. Trudeau stuck our president in the back. Trudeau pulled a "sophomoric political stunt for domestic consumption" that amounted to "a betrayal", said Kudlow, who appeared on CNN's "State of the Union" and CBS' "Face the Nation".

Canada's foreign minister, Chrystia Freeland, said her country "does not conduct its diplomacy through ad hominem attacks". Germany pays 1% (slowly) of GDP towards North Atlantic Treaty Organisation , while we pay 4% of a MUCH larger GDP.

Russian President Vladimir Putin rejects G7 criticism, stresses cooperation
Putin also said he's open to meeting with Trump and encouraged officials from both countries to make it happen. His remarks follow a report that White House officials were working towards setting up a meeting.

"What I saw Prime Minister Trudeau say was, I thought, fairly benign and certainly didn't warrant any attack".

Donald Trump's tirade against Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau's statement after the G7 summit may not have been related to Ottawa's stance on USA tariffs on steel and aluminum, Canadian based media The Star reported.

Two points of the joint communique formulated by the G7 members were not negotiated with the U.S. president, but that didn't prevent the Canadian prime minister from announcing that all member-states had reached common ground on the final statement.

The verbal volleys by Navarro and Trump's top economic adviser, Larry Kudlow, picked up where Trump had left off on Saturday evening. Can't do it in person.

Trump repeatedly attacked Canada on Twitter in the days leading up to the two-day summit in La Malbaie, Quebec with Trudeau and the leaders of Germany, France, Britain, Japan and Italy. "It's very unfair, and it's very unfair to our workers, and I'm gonna straighten it out". From promoting democracy and to fighting terrorism, "we're on the same page".

Wherever Trump is getting his figures from, his aggressive personal attacks and determination to torpedo a prestigious world summit on Canadian soil have done nothing to head of the threat of trade war.
