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

That was the message Tuesday as U.S. President Donald Trump continued to take personal shots at Justin Trudeau, blasted Canada's dairy industry and threatened to make Canadians pay for the prime minister's alleged effrontery.

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

"In conveying that message, I used language that was inappropriate and basically lost the power of that message", Navarro said at the Wall Street Journal's annual CFO Network conference.

He made the apology - something that former US ambassador to Canada Bruce Heyman, among others, was demanding that he do - during a Wall Street Journal event today in Washington. In tweets, Trump insulted Trudeau as "dishonest" and "weak".

"Canada does not believe that ad hominem attacks are a particularly appropriate or useful way to conduct our relations with other countries", Freeland said. "And I think what people need to do at this moment is take a step back", Hassett said.

Trump adviser Peter Navarro, meanwhile, said Tuesday he made a mistake when he said "there's a special place in hell" for Trudeau.

Two points of the joint communique formulated by the G7 members were not negotiated with the U.S. president, but that didn't prevent the Canadian prime minister from announcing that all member-states had reached common ground on the final statement.

"On his comments, I am going to stay focused on defending jobs for Canadians and supporting Canadian interests".


After leaving the meeting early, Trump tweeted that he was pulling United States support from a joint statement and he accused Trudeau of being weak and dishonest during a news conference.

The purely symbolic vote of solidarity came a day after White House trade adviser Peter Navarro said: "There is a special place in hell" for Trudeau for his "bad faith diplomacy" with Trump, as a dispute over trade escalated. Other than he had a news conference because he assumed I was on an airplane and wasn't watching.

"I think the first-hand interaction is likely to be a stronger factor than anything the president says", he said.

"Very dishonest and weak", he said.

"We finished the [G7] meeting and really everybody was happy".

"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." "And it won't even be tough". The US president and Mr Trudeau have had a friendly relationship in the past, but tensions over US tariffs have strained the diplomatic partnership.

In response to the massive steel and aluminium tariffs imposed by the Trump administration, Canada which is one of the largest exporters of the same spoke out against the exorbitant duties.

It's unclear what additional action the USA would take against Canada.
