Trump adviser voices regret for harsh words about Canadian leader

Photos taken just 48 hours apart show the contrast in President Donald Trump's meeting with Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau at the G7 Summit on Saturday and his talks with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un on Tuesday. Navarro apologized on Tuesday, saying he used language that was "inappropriate". "I own that, that was my mistake, my words", he said, according to the Journal and Bloomberg. Trudeau spoke in mostly favorable terms about Trump but said that Canadians "will not be pushed around" and added that the Trump administration's national security justification for imposing tariffs on steel and aluminum imported from Canada is "kind of insulting".

"That said, this is going to be a massive headache for United States companies doing business in Canada, both from a public relations and consumer relations perspective". He learned. You can't do. "You can't do that".

A push for some sort of reprisal in response to Trump's personal attack on Justin Trudeau has gained force since Canada's Parliament on Monday condemned weekend broadsides from its ally amid an escalating trade dispute. After facing harsh attacks on his character and leadership from the USA president and his aides, Americans are coming out online to let the Canadian PM know that their president doesn't speak for them.

Trump held a, um, wide-ranging news conference before he left Quebec to jet to Singapore. "Because you have some cases where countries are subsidizing industries and that's not fair", Trump said. "We just shook hands!"' Mr. Trump said.

"We finished the [G7] meeting and really everybody was happy".

China suggests North Korea sanctions relief as Trump, Kim meet
One of North Korea's stated goals is to establish peace with the US and ultimately see the removal of more than 30,000 USA troops from the Korean Peninsula.

In response to the massive steel and aluminium tariffs imposed by the Trump administration, Canada which is one of the largest exporters of the same spoke out against the exorbitant duties.

Trump said it "didn't look friendly" but it was "very friendly".

"I found a little five-dollar Canadian flag that's very modest, sort of like Canadians are, that you could put by your front door - maybe in a garden". "And it won't even be tough".

Trudeau had attempted to keep relations cordial in comments to reporters as he arrived at a cabinet meeting in Ontario. He also met privately with dairy farmers in his office. But it's worth asking the question of what toll unleashing a full-scale character assassination - "there's a special place in hell" is pretty strong stuff - on Canada's head of government means for how the United States is perceived in the world. The Trudeau government has announced it will impose dollar-for-dollar, retaliatory tariffs on metals and a range of other USA products by July 1.

He made the apology - something that former USA ambassador to Canada Bruce Heyman, among others, was demanding that he do - during a Wall Street Journal event today in Washington.
