Trudeau's criticism will cost Canada 'a lot of money'

"PM Justin Trudeau of Canada acted so meek and mild during our @G7 meetings only to give a news conference after I left saying that, 'US Tariffs were kind of insulting, '" Trump tweeted.

His anger appears to have been sparked by a news conference Mr Trudeau gave after the summit, in which he described as "insulting" the way the U.S. cited national security as a reason for the tariffs.

Trump adviser Peter Navarro, meanwhile, said Tuesday he made a mistake when he said "there's a special place in hell" for Trudeau.

"Thousands of Canadian workers and communities rely upon trade with our closest neighbor and ally, and it is incumbent for the entirety of Parliament to show stability and a united front, in these turbulent times", Ms. Ramsey said in a statement.

Navarro came under scrutiny Sunday for bashing Trudeau after the prime minister criticized Trump in the wake of the G-7 summit held in Canada.

US President Donald Trump and Canada's Prime Minister Justin Trudeau pose for a photo at the G7 Summit in the Charlevoix city of La Malbaie, Quebec, Canada. Later, he echoed Trump's baiting of Trudeau, repeating the line that the Canadian statesman is "weak" and "dishonest".

"The president, coming late, stands before the cameras and says, "Why don't we add Russian Federation to the group".

Before flying to Singapore, Mr. Trump was in Canada for the G-7 summit with leaders from Canada, France, Germany, Italy, Japan and the U.K. All seven leaders had worked out a joint statement stressing the importance of a rules-based worldwide trading system.

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 going to cost a lot of money for the people of Canada".

"There are always irritants in relationships", Pompeo said, adding that without partners like Canada, "we wouldn't be in this place, we wouldn't have this diplomatic opportunity" with the North.

Over the weekend, President Trump suddenly retracted his endorsement of the final joint statement by the G-7 summit of world leaders, tweeting afterward he had instructed representatives "not to endorse" it.

Trump says Trudeau "probably didn't know that Air Force One has about 20 televisions". "According to a Canada release, they make nearly 100 Billion Dollars in Trade with USA (guess they were bragging and got caught!)".

Asked whether he was apologizing, Navarro replied, "Yes, absolutely".
