White House aide apologises over ‘special place in hell’ comment

Trump Withdraws Endorsement Of G-7 Communique Over Trudeau Statements Trump adviser apologizes for ‘special place in hell’ comments

The G7 summit came after the Trump administration chose to impose tariffs on steel and aluminum imports from the European Union (EU), Canada and Mexico, which had drawn strong opposition from the domestic business community and USA major trading partners.

Canadian lawmakers unanimously voted to oppose the U.S.' "illegitimate tariffs" on Canadian steel and aluminum and condemned disparaging statements made by the Trump administration about Canada.

However, despite Trump's heated rhetoric, the USA ambassador to Germany, Richard Grenell, has expressed confidence that the trade conflict can be settled, but said it would take some time.

"Canadians are polite and reasonable, but we will not be pushed around", Trudeau recently said.

Trump himself attacked Trudeau on Twitter as "dishonest & weak" before backing out of a joint G7 statement, while top economic aide Larry Kudlow said Trudeau had "stabbed us in the back". "He did a whole disservice to the whole G-7".

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

Speaking for the first time about the acrimonious conclusion of the Group of Seven meeting in Quebec over the weekend, Trump said he felt Trudeau had mischaracterized the USA position in a press conference after the summit.

Opposition Leader James Aylward also expressed his support for Trudeau implementing retaliatory trade tariffs on US goods.

"I'm very confident that relationships between our countries, the United States and those G-7 countries, will continue to move forward on a strong basis", Mr. Pompeo told reporters, speaking in advance of Mr. Trump's summit with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un in Singapore.

Heyman was referring to Trump tweets that including calling Trudeau "weak" and "dishonest."

A Trump adviser had suggested Sunday that Trump saw Trudeau as trying to weaken his hand before the meeting with Kim. "He is not going to permit any show of weakness on the trip to negotiate with North Korea. He can't do that".

The trade adviser's remarks also drew criticism from some United States lawmakers and foreign allies.

Trump tweeted on Saturday. The U.S. had a trade surplus with Canada of $8.4 billion a year ago, according to the Office of the United States Trade Representative.

Navarro, a supporter of tariffs to help reduce the U.S.'s trade deficit and a longtime critic of China, turned his anger at Canada over the weekend as a Group of Seven meeting hosted by Trudeau ended in disarray and trade threats. "Then Justin acts hurt when called out!" "Not fair to the PEOPLE of America!"

Trudeau said he had reiterated to Trump, who left the G-7 meeting before it ended, that tariffs would harm industries and workers on both sides of the U.S.
