Trudeau: We support Trump's North Korea efforts, won't engage on comments

"There's 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", Navarro said on Fox News Sunday. "Things will change. I think they are one of the great winners today", Trump said when asked about the more than 100,000 political prisoners in North Korea. "But you know, Trump threatened tariffs on steel and aluminum, and everybody said, 'Oh, well, you know he's not going to hit Canada, we're not a security threat.' And lo and behold, look what happened".

In a rare apology by a Trump administration official, top White House trade adviser Peter Navarro on Tuesday walked back his inflammatory statement that there was a "special place in hell" reserved for Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau.

"Let me correct a mistake I made", Mr Navarro said at a Wall Street Journal conference.

Navarro's apology came days after Trump's spat with Trudeau over trade and the Group of Seven (G7) summit in Canada.

The insults stemmed from a closing G7 press conference on Saturday in which Trudeau called United States steel and aluminum tariffs "insulting" and pledged to proceed with previously announced retaliatory tariffs. Some of Trump's aides also lashed out at the Canadian prime minister.

The United States has alienated Canada and other allies by imposing tariffs on steel and aluminum imports, arguing that they pose a threat to US national security.

On Tuesday, Trump said: "We have a big trade deficit with Canada.it's close to $100 billion a year deal loss".

"He's giving a news conference about how he will not be pushed around by the United States".




In return, Trump accused Trudeau of being "weak and dishonest" and instructed US representatives not to endorse the G7 joint communique.

Kudlow later suffered a "very mild" heart attack, the White House said Monday, but was in good condition.

Trump said it "didn't look friendly" but it was "very friendly. "(Trudeau) learned. You can't do that.

Trump also continued to denounce Canada's system of supply management to protect the domestic dairy, egg and poultry industry, which levels tariffs of up to 300 per cent on American imports of those products.

"It's very unfair to our farmers, and it's very unfair to the people of our country", he said. "And it won't even be tough".

"From the beginning we have said that our approach would be to work for the best possible outcome but to always be prepared for the worst, to have backup plans", she said.

The United States has alienated Canada and other allies by imposing tariffs on steel and aluminium imports, arguing that they posed a threat to USA national security. The Trudeau government has announced it will impose dollar-for-dollar, retaliatory tariffs on metals and a range of other US products by July 1.

"I think we've simply got to continue and expand that effort that's been developed", Former Canadian Foreign Minister Lloyd Axworthy told the Canadian Broadcasting Corp. on Tuesday.
