Trump aide apologizes for 'inappropriate' comments on Trudeau

UK Prime Minister Theresa May has paid tribute to Canadian PM Justin Trudeau's leadership after a G7 summit which she described as "difficult".

The House of Commons unanimously passed a motion Monday rejecting "disparaging ad hominem statements by us officials", taking aim at Mr. Trump and his advisers for tearing into Mr. Trudeau beginning moments after the president departed the G-7 summit on Saturday.

Navarro said at a Wall Street Journal event that the heated comments he made Sunday were "inappropriate" and a "mistake," according to several news outlets.

The insults were supposedly a response to the post-G7 news conference in which Trudeau repeated his diplomatic criticism of Trump's steel and aluminum tariffs and said he would stand up for Canadians.

White House trade adviser Peter Navarro offered the Trump administration's most biting response to Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau last week over their tariff dispute.

"I have a good relationship with Justin Trudeau", Trump told the crowd.

Mr. Trump's actions led to an extraordinary juxtaposition: an abrupt public feud and deterioration of ties between the US and Canada at the same moment as warm words and a detente between the USA and North Korea. Addressing reporters in Singapore ahead of Trump's summit Tuesday with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un, Pompeo said he was "unconcerned" that Trump's treatment of Canada - a close ally - boded poorly for his ability to forge peace with a longtime USA adversary.

"That's going to cost a lot of money for the people of Canada; he learned", Trump said wagging his finger. "We are being taken advantage of by virtually every one of those countries", he said.

The other countries at the G-7 summit, however, rallied to Mr. Trudeau's support.

Navarro had told Fox News on Sunday that there was a "special place in hell" for the Canadian prime minister that "engages in bad-faith diplomacy" with U.S. President Donald Trump.

On Tuesday, Mr Trump kept up the attack on Mr Trudeau.

Trudeau said it was "inconceivable" that the U.S could see Canada - one of its closest allies and a longtime supplier of steel and other metals - as a national security threat.

He said Trump agreed with the fairly generic trade language in the communique drafted by the G7 leaders, who are traditionally America's closet allies.

In reality, the United States has a small surplus with Canada when goods and services are considered - $341.2 billion to Canada's $325.9 billion, according to 2016 statistics from the US trade representative.

"He did him a favor", Navarro said.

"And that comes right from Air Force One".
