Trump trade adviser apologises for insulting Trudeau

White House trade adviser Peter Navarro on Tuesday apologized for making inappropriate comments attacking Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau. Trump refused to endorse the group's joint statement, said Russian Federation should be readmitted, and traded barbs with Trudeau over an intensifying trade conflict. Trudeau's comments centered around Trump's lack of understanding when it comes to global trade.

"I don't think anybody knows what that's going to be at this particular juncture, particularly with all the hot air going back and forth across the border", Carr said. And I see the television and he's giving a news conference about how he will not be pushed around by the United States and I say push him around? "We just shook hands!"' No, I have a good relationship with Justin Trudeau. Other than he had a news conference because he assumed I was on an airplane and wasn't watching.

Hayden went on to slam Trump's treatment of Canada as humiliating for the United States. And, if I may quote the words of the great Bear Bryant, "when you make a mistake you should admit it, learn from it, don't repeat it".

There have been reports that Mr. Trump was upset because the President felt that after he had generously agreed to give in on a key Canadian sticking point - the US demand for a sunset clause that would see NAFTA renegotiated after five years - Mr. Trudeau was talking tough.

Other leaders of the G-7, including the United Kingdom, France and Germany - which were also hit by Trump's steel tariffs - came to Trudeau's defense.

The feud escalated on Friday and Saturday as Trump called for Russian Federation to be readmitted to the G-7, a group of leading industrialized nations, and declared after he left the summit that the us would not endorse a joint communique issued by the group.

Trump has consistently railed against what he claims are unfair trade practices by some of America's biggest trade partners, including Canada. "It was very friendly", Mr Trump said. The government has proposed $16.6-billion tariff package, in retaliation for the Trump administration's decision to impose 25 per cent import duties on steel and 10 per cent on aluminum.

READ: Will we really sacrifice the Canadian economy at the altar of the dairy industry? In an effort to protect its farmers, Canada charges an average tariff of 249% on dairy products shipped into the country, according to the World Trade Organization. Chrystia Freeland, the Canadian foreign minister, called them "inappropriate" and warned that ad hominem attacks are not a productive way to conduct worldwide relations.

"The US faces the same (issue)", Frigon said, adding the United States also limited dairy imports with high tariffs, albeit much lower than Canada's.
