Trudeau has not directly addressed Navarro's comments, but Canada's foreign minister, Chrystia Freeland, said the remarks were not "particularly appropriate or useful".

Trudeau on Saturday pushed back against Trump's decision to impose stiff tariffs on Canada, vowing not to be "pushed around" by the U.S.

Canadian officials have stressed the two countries' extensive trading relationship and pointed out that Canada is the top export destination for 35 USA states and that 9 million jobs in the United States depend on trade with its northern neighbor.

There were two crucial points that didn't satisfy the U.S. delegation, the Canadian media points out. She also said the European Union would "act" against the US trade measures.

U.S. President Donald Trump speaks to the media as he leaves the G7 Summit in the Charlevoix town of La Malbaie, Quebec, Canada, June 9, 2018. The former reality TV star complained that he had been blindsided by Trudeau's criticism of his tariff threats when the prime minister said at a presser: "Canada will not be pushed around" and would "retaliate" with equal tariffs.

His apology comes amid a war of words between Trump and Trudeau after the G7 summit in Canada.

He is urging US officials to focus on unfair trade practices, like steel dumping by China. In tweets, Trump insulted Trudeau as "dishonest" and "weak".

Trump said a photograph released by German Chancellor Angela Merkel's spokesman that went viral captured a friendlier mood than what the snapshot conveyed to many analysts. Trump said it was snapped as they waited for changes he'd requested to the communique he ended up pulling out of. The Trudeau government has announced it will impose dollar-for-dollar, retaliatory tariffs on metals and a range of other USA products by July 1. The two then signed a joint agreement.

A video posted of Trudeau delivering a press conference appeared to show Trudeau's left eyebrow "falling off" his face.

In the air by then, Trump tweeted: "Based on Justin's false statements at his news conference, and the fact that Canada is charging massive Tariffs to our U.S. farmers, workers and companies, I have instructed our U.S. Reps not to endorse the Communique as we look at Tariffs on automobiles flooding the U.S. Market!" "Our Tariffs are in response to his of 270% on dairy!", Trump wrote in a second tweet.

"He really kind of stabbed us in the back", he said.

He continued by saying Trudeau's comments are "not what true friends do" and added "I think Peter Navarro's commentary on Fox was spot-on".
