Trump trade adviser apologises for insulting Trudeau

Trump trade adviser apologises for insulting Trudeau

Behind the scenes, they were trying to re-establish normal relations - professional and respectful, if not always in agreement - and keep lines of communication open with American officials.

But economists and trade experts say the president's complaints are undermined by two key pieces of context: The Canadian tariffs are far from unusual, and Trump already missed a first-rate chance to have them reduced.

"We finished the meeting, really everybody was happy, and I agreed to sign something", Mr Trump said.

The US President is referring to when Trudeau told reports that Canada "will not be pushed around" in response to the Trump administration's newly announced tariffs on steel and aluminum. "$800 billion trade deficit", he tweeted on Monday.

A senior aide to US President Donald Trump apologized Tuesday for saying there was a "special place in hell" for Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, following the acrimonious Group of Seven summit.

"I used language that was inappropriate", he said, according to Journal reporters.

"Somebody told me the other day that a few months ago [Canada] raised [tariffs] to 295% for dairy products", Trump said at a press conference on Tuesday.

Let's follow the timeline: What did Trudeau say?

At that post-G7 press conference on Saturday, Trudeau had called USA steel and aluminum tariffs "insulting" and said he would proceed with retaliatory tariffs that he'd already announced. And, if I may quote the words of the great Bear Bryant, "when you make a mistake you should admit it, learn from it, don't repeat it". "You can't do that".

"I actually like Justin", Trump said.

Mr Trump also commented at the news conference on the viral photo taken of German Chancellor Angela Merkel and others standing before him. Canada has stood with the United States in every modern war and crisis. I like him. But he shouldn't have done that.

Trump and Kim shook hands and posed for photos before their almost 40-minute one-on-one conversation behind closed doors.

But French officials have indicated the European Union and U.S. will establish a dialogue on trade within the next two weeks, signalling a modest step forward at G7.

Canada controls dairy supplies and prices and limits imports through high tariffs and has been long criticised by dairy-producing countries such as the United States and New Zealand. "It was very friendly". "And it won't even be tough".

Sorting out exactly how much government support American dairy farmers receive is notoriously complicated.

As he flew from Canada to Singapore Saturday night, Trump took to Twitter to label Trudeau "dishonest" and "weak". "The wounds will heal, but the question [is] how does the relationship get impacted?"

Canada "would be absolutely resolute in defence of the national interest", she added.

Canada's approach has been to hope for the best outcome but to always be prepared for the worst, and "to have a plan B, C, D, E and F and maybe to the end of the alphabet", Freeland said.

For longtime critics of Canada's farm supply management system, President Donald Trump's latest disjointed ramblings about unfair Canadian trade practices are a bit of a gift. During the Second World War, the US joined Canada and the Allied forces to defeat the Axis powers. On Wednesday, Trump's Agriculture Secretary, Sonny Perdue, gave US dairy producers extra time to sign up for something called the Margin Protection Program.

The leaders are engaged in a heated battle over tariffs and trade that sees no end in sight.

The US President looked uncomfortable throughout the breakfast meeting.
