Peter Navarro's apology to Justin Trudeau for 'hell' remark

14 June 2018

White House trade adviser Peter Navarro has apologized for saying Justin Trudeau earned "a special place in hell" with his response to Donald Trump's complaints about US-Canada trade.

The admission was a rare act of contrition from US President Donald Trump's White House, where public apologies are few.

"Justin probably didn't know that Air Force One has about 20 televisions, and I see the television", Trump said.

According to the currency conversion website operated by foreign exchange company XE, one United States dollar now buys just under 20.6 Mexican pesos.

"No one wants to look like they're conceding anything to Trump", said Martha Hall Findlay, a former Liberal MP and leadership candidate who is now president of the Calgary-based Canada West Foundation and a longtime advocate of ending supply management. "(Trudeau) learned. You can't do that.

"I think that the Judgment Day that separates us from heaven and hell is not dependent on whether you agree with the president", Short told CNN.

Some of Trump's aides also lashed out at the Canadian prime minister.

At a press conference Saturday, Trudeau recommitted to imposing retaliatory tariffs on United States goods in response to Trump's steel and aluminum tariffs.

"They have made a decision to go significantly into the export market by undercutting the world price for milk powder", said Vilsack, who was US agriculture secretary under former President Barack Obama.

"Thousands of Canadian workers and communities rely upon trade with our closest neighbor and ally, and it is incumbent for the entirety of Parliament to show stability and a united front, in these turbulent times", Ms. Ramsey said in a statement.

"The meeting on Monday in Singapore with respect to North Korea - that holds important potential for the peace and security of the world", Goodale told FOX Business' Stuart Varney Wednesday on "Varney & Co".

"It's kind of like. if you were sitting with a friend and then out of the blue, you just punched them in the face", said Heyman on CBC's "On the Money." Dairy farmers, who number about 11,000, have an outsized influence in Canadian politics, being concentrated in the vote-rich provinces of Ontario and Quebec.

MacLauchlan also took the opportunity to affirm his support for the supply management system in Canada's dairy industry, which has been heavily attacked by members of the Trump administration. "He'll learn, he can't do that", Trump said.

"They understand that we in Vermont value that relationship with Canada and we want to again come to some conclusion on that so that we can continue our trade with our largest trading partner", Scott said.
