Trump confused by Trudeau's 'pushed around' comment

Trump confused by Trudeau's 'pushed around' comment

"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.

Unbowed, Trump tweeted anew Monday morning from Singapore, repeating his criticism of US trade policies with Canada - he also took aim at Germany - in a multitweet rant that went beyond 200 words all told.

Trudeau, who had said at the news conference that Canada would retaliate for new US tariffs, didn't respond to questions about Trump when the prime minister arrived at a Quebec City hotel Sunday for meetings with other world leaders. Trump said he was surprised to watch Trudeau's press conference while aboard Air Force One as he flew to Singapore.

The insults were supposedly a response to the post-G7 news conference in which Trudeau repeated his diplomatic criticism of Trump's steel and aluminum tariffs and said he would stand up for Canadians.

Trump accused Trudeau of making "false statements", and tweeted that the Canadian leader was "very dishonest & weak" during negotiations.

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.

Trudeau, Trump told ABC News, "shouldn't have done that. That's what weak, dishonest Justin Trudeau did", Navarro said on the "Fox News Sunday" program.

Monday's symbolic House vote was held after Mr. Trump criticized Mr. Trudeau over the weekend for vowing to retaliate against tariffs recently imposed by the USA on Canadian steel and aluminum products. Further, President Donald Trump over the weekend and again on Monday targeted Canada's dairy supply management system, saying Canada's trade practices are harming USA farmers.


Meanwhile, a White House official says the USA will seek to replace NAFTA with bilateral deals with Canada and Mexico, if the talks fail.

On Tuesday, Mr Trump kept up the attack on Mr Trudeau. It was very friendly.

Trump's extraordinary outburst in recent days appeared aimed at striking a chord with voters who support his "America First" agenda.

Trudeau said the Liberal government looks forward to the details of the agreement that emerged from Monday's historic meeting between Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong Un.

Trump had already roiled G-7 members ahead of the summit and raised fears of a trade war when he placed tariffs on steel and aluminum from Canada, the European Union and Mexico.

"I think the G8 would be better, I think having Russian Federation back in would be a positive thing. The Prime Minister said nothing he hasn't said before - both in public, and in private conversations with the President".

"I have a good relationship with Justin Trudeau", Trump told the crowd.

"We're being taken advantage of on trade", Trump said. "Politicians can get into disagreements and they can have heated disputes but you have to think about where does this go, how bad could it get and the disputes are over a really, really small share of GDP". The relationship between the two leaders appears to have soured since comments were made regarding US tariffs on Canadian steel and aluminum imports.
