  • Peter Navarro Apologizes for 'Special Place in Hell' Comment - Cortney O'Brien

US President Donald Trump fired off a volley of tweets yesterday venting anger on North Atlantic Treaty Organisation allies, the European Union (EU) and Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau in the wake of a divisive Group of Seven (G-7) meeting over the weekend.

"My job was to send a signal of strength".

Foreign Affairs Minister Chrystia Freeland said Sunday that "Canada does not believe that ad hominem attacks are a particularly appropriate or useful way to conduct our relations with other countries". "That's what weak, dishonest Justin Trudeau did", said Navarro, referring to the joint press conference that is routinely held at the end of the annual events.

Mr Trump's top economic adviser, Larry Kudlow, suggested that Mr Trump saw Mr Trudeau as trying to weaken his hand before the summit with Mr Kim. People speculated that the Trump administration wanted to make an example of Trudeau as a warning to Kim Jong-un about post-summit reversals, which is a odd way to treat an ally and key trading partner if true. "That's going to cost him a lot of money". Kudlow said the president won't "let a Canadian prime minister push him around. Our Tariffs are in response to his of 270% on dairy!"

On Trump's handling of trade - where the populist president has taken major steps to enact his economic nationalist agenda - almost 80 percent of Republican voters said they approve of trade actions thus far.

"I have made it very clear to the president that it is not something we relish doing, but it something that we absolutely will do", Trudeau said. "Using that type of language is not professional, it's not called for, and I tell you, I was deeply disappointed to see this lack of professionalism on his part".

"We have a big trade deficit with Canada".

"Actually, we were just talking - the whole group - about something unrelated to everything, very friendly". He was asked why he was jeopardizing relations with long-standing allies like Canada while welcoming a historical USA enemy with open arms as a friend.

Other G-7 countries lobbied unsuccessfully at the summit for the USA to reverse its tariffs on imported steel and aluminium imports.
