  • Trudeau criticism will cost Canada `a lot of money´

"And, the problem is that, in conveying that message, I used language that was inappropriate, and I basically lost the power of that message".

Still, the potential USA fallout could make the tariffs a hard sell to Trump's manufacturing base, said Jerry Dias, national president of Unifor, which represents Canadian autoworkers at GM, Ford and FCA.

Trump took time at his news conference to explain a photo that went viral from the G7 summit.

Navarro, for his part, suggested that he was following orders - but made a poor choice of words in doing so.

He made the comments Tuesday at an event of The Wall Street Journal CFO Network in Washington.

Navarro said he had been trying to use strong words to back Mr. Trump's trade stance but went too far. And I say, push him around?

Trudeau said the Liberal government looks forward to the details of the agreement that emerged from Monday's historic meeting between Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong Un.

"So you know, it is something that we have discussed, and Canada is certainly prepared for any eventuality", said Freeland.

"On his comments, I'm going to stay focused on defending jobs for Canadians and supporting Canadian interests", Trudeau said before walking away from reporters.

The current troubles between Trump and Trudeau started when the USA announced it would place tariffs on steel and aluminum imports from key allies, including Canada.

Robert De Niro Apologizes To Canada For Trump's 'Idiotic Behavior'
Actor Robert De Niro received an onslaught of criticism after he appeared at the Tony Awards on Sunday and said "F**k Trump". De Niro's negative opinions about Trump are nothing new. "Bruce, you can rock the house like nobody else", said De Niro.


"I see the television and he's giving a news conference about how he "will not be pushed around" by the United States".

The Canadian leader would likely argue, however, that not only does he lead one of the US's closest allies, but also that he did no such thing in negotiations with Trump.

The insults stemmed from a closing G7 press conference on Saturday in which Trudeau called USA steel and aluminum tariffs "insulting" and pledged to proceed with previously announced retaliatory tariffs. "Our Tariffs are in response to his of 270% on dairy!"

Then, he went on about how massive trade surpluses were not fair to the American people and how the United States pays almost the full cost of North Atlantic Treaty Organisation which protects "many of these same countries that rip us off on Trade" and remarked, "Change is coming".

Foreign Affairs Minister Chrystia Freeland, who will be in Washington on Wednesday and Thursday, is hoping to meet with US trade czar Robert Lighthizer to resume discussions on modernizing the North American Free Trade Agreement. Under his administration, the USA has already clobbered its top export market on trade, running a $2.7 billion surplus, according to the Bureau of Economic Analysis. The Canadian auto industry directly employs about 130,000 people and contributes more than C$20 billion annually to gross domestic product, according to the Canadian Vehicles Manufacturers' Association, which represents the Canadian arms of General Motors, Ford Motor Co. and Fiat Chrysler Automobiles. "This is about our economy and millions and millions of jobs".

Trump, who has since threatened to impose tariffs on Canada, added: "He learned".

The NAFTA talks have stalled since Trump last month imposed 25 per cent tariffs on steel from Canada, Mexico and the European Union, and 10 per cent tariffs on aluminum.

If the US imposes a 25 per cent tariff on those exports, suddenly they don't make much economic sense, said Kristin Dziczek, vice president of industry, labour and economics at the Center for Automotive Research in Ann Arbor, Mich.

"Sometimes when we think about tariffs, when we think about a trade war, we lose sight of the real impact, and that's on workers", Singh told a news conference.
