Peter Navarro's apology to Justin Trudeau for 'hell' remark

Trump Adviser Apologizes For Saying Trudeau 'Deserved Special Place In Hell' Trump: Trudeau criticism will cost Canada 'a lot of money'

President Donald Trump took more swipes at Canada and its prime minister over trade issues as he settled in for a summit with North Korea in Singapore, contending that "Fair Trade is now to be called Fool Trade if it is not Reciprocal".

"I'm not sure what activity he's asking me to undertake with either", May said amid laughter.

Mr Navarro reportedly said on Tuesday his remarks were a mistake and his language was inappropriate.

Trump was furious after Trudeau had said at the end of a contentious economic summit in Quebec that he wouldn't let Canada be pushed around in trade relations with the United States.

"And that's what bad faith Justin Trudeau did with that stunt press conference", he said. "That's going to cost him a lot of money".

"I'm going to stay focused on defending jobs for Canadians and supporting Canadian interests", he said.

Also from Reuters: The Japanese government wants to buy some 131,070 tonnes of food quality wheat from the United States, Canada and Australia, according to a new tender that closes Thursday.

However, Navarro says he used inappropriate language in trying to convey that message.

Trump says Trudeau "probably didn't know that Air Force 1 has about 20 televisions".

Donald Trump's trade adviser has apologized for saying Canada's prime minister deserved a "special place in hell". The ire directed at the prime minister by Trump and his advisors had confused some trade observers since the comments seemed to be just a reiteration of what the prime minister had said previously and not a personal insult.

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

Appearing on Fox News Sunday, Mr Navarro said: "There's a special place in hell for any foreign leader that engages in bad-faith diplomacy with President Donald J Trump".

"Sorry, we can not let our friends, or enemies, take advantage of us on trade any more".

Trump didn't help matters by attacking pretty much everyone at the summit.

It said Canada would "reject disparaging and ad hominem (personal attack) statements by US officials which do a disservice to bilateral relations and work against efforts to resolve this trade dispute".

"I had a good relationship with Justin Trudeau, I really did".

Messrs. Trump and Kim are expected to meet face-to-face on Tuesday morning to discuss prospects of a deal in which North Korea would give up nuclear capabilities in exchange for help opening its economy.

The relationship between the US and its allies was already off-balance after Mr. Trump just a week before the summit imposed 25% tariffs on steel and 10% tariffs on aluminum from the European Union and Canada. He then added a 10% tariff on aluminum imported from those parts of the world.
