Trump adviser apologizes for saying ‘special place in hell’ for Trudeau

2018 G7 Summit far from harmonious Trump advisers slam Trudeau's 'betrayal' days before Kim summit

"He really kind of stabbed us in the back", Larry Kudlow, head of the National Economic Council, agreed on CNN. But he also said that critical comments from Justin Trudeau would cost Canada "a lot of money".

US President Donald Trump issued a volley of tweets on Monday venting anger on some of Washington's closest North Atlantic Treaty Organisation allies over the United State's trade deficit, following a divisive G7 meeting in Canada.

A spokesman for Trudeau told the New York Times that the prime minister is focusing on "everything we accomplished here at the summit".

"He is not going to permit any show of weakness on the trip to negotiate with North Korea, nor should he", Kudlow said of Trump.

The Canadian dollar fell as much as 0.6 per cent against the greenback in early Asian trading on Monday as dealers responded to the G7 meeting and its aftermath. Significant foreign investment in Canada is also linked to its access to the United States market. Trump said in a second tweet. "Trudeau stuck our President in the back".

"What I saw Prime Minister Trudeau say was, I thought, fairly benign and certainly didn't warrant any attack".

Trump met with Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau at the G7 summit over the weekend.

While Trump expressed surprise at Trudeau's remarks, his comments were largely in line with what Canadian officials had said since Trump's announcement of tariffs. "All Mr. Trudeau was doing was, in a rather gentle way, articulating the position his government - which would be the position of any Canadian government in these circumstances - so I don't view it as lethal", Mulroney said.

"Let me correct a mistake I made", Navarro said. He also praised the opposition parties for backing the prime minister on this particular issue.

Trudeau had engaged in "bad-faith diplomacy", Navarro maintained. Pre-summit reports from the White House suggested that the president even considered skipping the summit altogether. Known for his hardline stance on China, Navarro said that while it is not the US' job to change other countries' behaviour, the Trump administration would "defend ourselves" against Chinese trade policies. "Not unusual to argue with allies".

"Way over the top with Navarro".

In a series of tweets from Singapore Monday, Trump kept up the tirade while contending that "Fair Trade is now to be called Fool Trade if it is not Reciprocal". The negotiations will either be bilateral or trilateral with Mexico, he said.

It was Trudeau's closing statements at the end of the G7 summit in La Malbaie QC that apparently prompted the petty insults and angry reaction from Trump.
