President Trump Is Still Very Angry With Canada's PM Justin Trudeau

13 June 2018

Trump was reacting to Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, who said Saturday that Canada would retaliate for Trump's proposed new tariffs. "I own that. That was my mistake, those were my words".

"I used language that was inappropriate", he said, according to Journal reporters.

Trudeau said after the G-7 meeting that the aluminum and steel tariffs imposed by the USA on Canada on national security grounds were insulting and that "Canadians are polite, we're reasonable, but we also will not be pushed around". Trump first agreed to sign a joint economic pledge, then pulled out after taking off in Air Force One, calling the Canadian Prime Minister "very dishonest and weak" after Trudeau vowed to retaliate against USA tariffs on steel and aluminum.

White House trade adviser weighs in on 'Fox News Sunday'.

She said it had been "a hard summit with, at times, some very candid discussions" and that the United Kingdom would honour its commitments in the joint communique.

He delivered them the day after Trump himself criticized Trudeau and shortly after Trump's top economic adviser, Larry Kudlow, insulted Trudeau himself.

At a news conference Tuesday after his summit with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un, Trump recounted his recent tough exchanges with Trudeau.

At the event, Mr Trudeau said Canada would take retaliatory steps in response to Mr Trump's steel and aluminium tariffs imposed on Canada and other allies.

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.

"And that's what bad faith Justin Trudeau did with that stunt press conference", he added.

You said that that came from Air Force One.

Mr. Trudeau especially objected to the Trump administration's justification of the tariffs, saying Ottawa isn't a national security threat to Washington.

Mr. Trump called Trudeau "very dishonest & weak" for his objections to the US tariffs.

When asked about Trump's remarks in Parliament on Tuesday, Trudeau said he supports Trump's efforts on North Korea and looks forward to the details of that agreement.

"Navarro himself crossed a line, basically telling a leader of a foreign nation that he needs to go to hell.I don't care how mad, how angry you are, you don't treat the head of state of another country like that unless you are getting ready for a military engagement of some kind".

White House legislative affairs director Marc Short also sought to distance himself from Navarro's comments and told CNN's John Berman in an interview Monday that "those are words that I would not have chosen".
