Navarro apologizes for harsh comment about Canada PM

Navarro apologizes for harsh comment about Canada PM

Yet after White House trade adviser Peter Navarro said there's a "special place in hell" for foreign leaders like Trudeau who engage in bad faith with Trump, Canada's auto sector may be more at risk.

He explained to an audience at a Wall Street Journal event in Washington that he got caught up in his "mission" to convey a strong position and used "inappropriate" language and "basically lost the power of that message".

Trump said he chose to back out of the G7 communique after watching Trudeau's closing summit news conference, at which he warned that Canada would not be pushed around on tariffs - a point the Canadian prime minister had made several times before. The move has been roundly criticized by Canada and the European Union, leading to heightened tensions at last week's summit of the Group of Seven wealthy democracies - just before Trump left for Singapore and a meeting with North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un.

Following Trump's departure from the G7 summit, Trudeau said Saturday at a press conference that USA steel and aluminum tariffs against Canada on national security grounds were "kind of insulting" and that Canada "will not be pushed around".

But Trump didn't seem impressed by the comment.

"I see the television and he's giving a news conference about how he "will not be pushed around" by the United States". Trump tweeted on Saturday. Canadians are "polite, we're reasonable, but we also will not be pushed around", Trudeau said.

Navarro, a supporter of tariffs to help reduce the U.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.

Fox News Host Apologizes After Accidentally Calling Trump A 'Dictator'
Trump has said he'll know within minutes whether a deal can be made to settle a standoff over Pyongyang's nuclear program. Kim Jong-un stands open-mouthed as an interpreter translates. "There were obstacles but we overcame them to be here".

On Sunday, Navarro, who is Trump's most hawkish trade adviser, assailed Trudeau for engaging in "bad faith diplomacy" in the wake of the G-7 meeting. And I say, 'Push him around? "It was very friendly", Mr Trump said. He learned. You can't do that.

"We finished the (G7) meeting and really everybody was happy".

Another thing buoying Trudeau has been the near-universal Canadian response to Trump's comments. He also met privately with dairy farmers in his office.

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

Freeland said Canada's approach to the trade talks remains unchanged: to work for a win-win-win compromise while being "absolutely resolute in defence of the national interest".

A recent report by the Peterson Institute for International Economics found that blanket 25-per-cent tariffs on automobile imports to the US, including auto parts, would reduce production by 1.5 per cent and could cause job losses of 195,000 in the USA over the first three years, and would affect $200 billion in US imports.

"If it goes on for a while - and it would have to go on for a while - people might change their views, but I don't think this one incident is likely to have that effect".
