Trump warns Trudeau: Trade row 'will cost Canada a lot of money’

Trump warns Trudeau: Trade row 'will cost Canada a lot of money’

"I used language that was inappropriate", he said, according to Journal reporters.

Trudeau said that the aluminum and steel tariffs imposed by the U.S. on Canada on national security grounds were insulting and that "Canadians are polite, we're reasonable, but we also will not be pushed around".

Navarro condemned Trudeau following the Canadian leader's news conference after his summit meeting with Trump and other world leaders from the Group of Seven.

Trump initially called Trudeau's comments a "dishonest" act.

Trump's surrogates piled on over the weekend, with White House trade adviser Peter Navarro telling Fox News that "there's a special place in hell" for Trudeau - comments he later walked back.

Scaramucci went on to say that Trump has great respect for Trudeau, likes him personally and thinks he is an effective leader - and that Canadians shouldn't read too much into Trump's personal attacks.

"Obviously we support the continuing efforts by the president on North Korea, we look forward to looking at the details of the agreement", Trudeau said Tuesday as he arrived on Parliament Hill for his weekly cabinet meeting.

Navarro's interview followed another by National Economic Council Director Larry Kudlow, who called Trudeau's statement as "diplomatic betrayal".

It said Canada would "reject disparaging and ad hominem (personal attack) statements by usa officials which do a disservice to bilateral relations and work against efforts to resolve this trade dispute".

"That's going to cost a lot of money for the people of Canada; he learned", Mr Trump said wagging his finger.

Trump's tough rhetoric for the leader of Canada, one of the United States' closest allies, was in sharp contrast with the words he chose to describe Kim.

It came sandwiched between tweets railing against Canada, Germany, and the European Union over their "unfair" trade with the United States, and accused them of taking advantage of American workers. German Chancellor Angela Merkel, who also attended the summit, told German public television that she found Trump's tweet disavowing the G-7 statement "sobering" and "a little depressing".

Appearing on "Fox News Sunday", Navarro said: "There's a special place in hell for any foreign leader that engages in bad faith diplomacy with President Donald J. Trump".

Kudlow said on CNN that Trump's reaction to Trudeau's comments has been "in large part" because he does not want "any show of weakness" ahead of that meeting.

No two nations are closer together politically, economically and militarily than the USA and Canada. The U.S. had a trade surplus with Canada of $8.4 billion a year ago, according to the Office of the United States Trade Representative.

Heyman waged a campaign on Twitter to persuade Navarro to apologize by saying he was contacting us politicians about his remarks.
