Navarro apologizes for harsh comment about Canada PM

Leaders pose for family

The G7 summit came after the Trump administration announced last week to impose tariffs on steel and aluminum imports from the European Union (EU), Canada and Mexico, which has drawn strong opposition from the domestic business community and quick retaliation from United States major trading partners.

Days later, Trump said that he had left the summit at that stage and was aboard Air Force One en route to Singapore when Trudeau gave the press conference.

"Canada does not believe that ad hominem attacks are a particularly appropriate or useful way to conduct our relations with other countries", Freeland said. Instead, he emphasized the need for other countries to reduce their barriers against the United States, such as Canadian duties on USA dairy.

"Canadians, we're polite, we're reasonable, but we also will not be pushed around", Trudeau continued.

Navarro, for his part, suggested that he was following orders - but made a poor choice of words in doing so.

"The next morning, on Fox News, my job - my mission - was to send a very strong signal of strength".

At an event hosted by the Journal, Navarro said he had made a mistake, according to the newspaper.

On Sunday, Trudeau ignored the barbs from Trump's advisors, tweeting a link to the G7 communique and hailing the "historic and important agreement we all reached".

Trump wouldn't discuss the reasons why Russian Federation was expelled from the group in 2014, specifically because of its annexation of the Ukrainian territory of Crimea, but blamed his predecessor, Barack Obama, for allowing it to happen, and said he would have done things very differently.

Donald Trump doesn't know who his friends are and that's why he no longer has any.

The spat began at the end of the G7 meeting in Quebec Saturday, when Mr. Trudeau reaffirmed that Canada would retaliate against Mr. Trump's metals tariffs, which will charge Canada, Mexico and the European Union 25 per cent on steel and 10 per cent on aluminum exported to the U.S. Mr. Trudeau told reporters Ottawa "will not be pushed around" by Washington.

Trump on Sunday arrived in Singapore, where he and Kim are to meet Tuesday to discuss that nation's nuclear arsenal. "Obviously we support the continuing efforts by the President on North Korea", the Canadian prime minister said. We just shook hands.

The Australian share market lost ground on last Friday, 08 June 2018 as investors hold fire ahead of the imminent G7 meeting in Canada.

On June 1, the United States imposed a 25 per cent tariff for steel and 10 per cent for aluminium on imports from the European Union (EU), Canada, and Mexico.

"I think it's a very fair question", he said.

- "Looking forward to straightening out unfair Trade Deals with the G-7 countries. And it won't even be tough".

But the White House adviser did not say what precisely it was that Trudeau said at a press conference following the G-7 summit over the weekend that warranted the White House's aggressive response.

- "Canada charges the US a 270% tariff on Dairy Products!"

And it concludes with a direct shot at Trump, calling on the House to "reject disparaging and ad hominem statements by US officials which do a disservice to bilateral relations and work against efforts to resolve this trade dispute".

The Americans' criticism of Trudeau left a former Canadian prime minister, Stephen Harper, stumped.
