Trump trade adviser: Harsh comments against Trudeau were a ‘mistake’

Canada's Prime Minister Justin Trudeau holds a press conference at the G7 Summit in the Charlevoix town of La Malbaie Quebec

"Canada does not believe that ad hominem attacks are a particularly appropriate or useful way to conduct our relations with other countries", Freeland said. "That was my mistake, those were my words".

Asked if he was apologizing for the comments, Navarro said, "yeah, absolutely".

U.S. President Donald Trump answers questions about the summit with North Korea leader Kim Jong Un during a press conference at the Capella resort on Sentosa Island Tuesday, June 12, 2018 in Singapore. You said that that came from Air Force One.

But when Trudeau said Canada would be forced to retaliate for USA tariffs on steel and aluminum and would not agree to a sunset provision in a new North American Free Trade Agreement, "he really kind of stabbed us in the back", Kudlow said.

"If Kim Jong Un reverses his commitments. then what the president said about Justin Trudeau will be repeated 10-fold about Kim Jong Un", Cotton told the Hugh Hewitt syndicated radio talk show. "It's kind of insulting". Some of Trump's aides also lashed out at the Canadian prime minister.

Smith further said Trump's latest attitude towards Trudeau isn't a new thing and he has "been kicking allies in the teeth his whole presidency". Trudeau's office, in turn, said what the Canadian leader said on Saturday was nothing new.

"Very dishonest and weak", he said. "That was a mistake".

"That's going to cost a lot of money for the people of Canada", Trump said. But the president broadsided his allies after leaving the meeting by disavowing a joint statement the US had agreed to, criticizing Trudeau and vowing tariffs on automobiles.

Heyman added he's "of course ... embarrassed" about Trump's behavior during the G-7 meeting, arguing the United States "was doing everything it could do to disrupt this meeting".

The attacks against Canada didn't end there, on Sunday, economic advisor Larry Kudlow accused Canada of stabbing the U.S.in the back.

Trump and Kim shook hands and posed for photos before their almost 40-minute one-on-one conversation behind closed doors.

But he's taking the high road when it comes to the US president's ongoing trash talk against Canada.

Most analysts agree that the tariffs would also be bad for the U.S. American consumers would have to pay $5,000 to $7,000 more for their vehicles on average, potentially reducing U.S. auto sales by 4 million to 5 million units a year, said DesRosiers, who called it "a nightmare scenario".

But the Harper government was uniquely positioned, said Christopher Sands, director of the Center for Canadian Studies at Johns Hopkins University, in that it had money to compensate farmers, few seats in Quebec and a massive trade deal to sell at the time.
