Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau addresses a press conference at the conclusion of the G7 summit in La Malbaie Quebec

Deploying distinctly Trumpian nicknames for the Canadian leader, Navarro said: "And that's what Bad Faith Justin Trudeau did with that stunt press conference".

WASHINGTON-A senior adviser to U.S. President Donald Trump has apologized for saying there is a "special place in hell" for Prime Minister Justin Trudeau.

"I own that, that was my mistake, those were my words", Navarro said.

Trudeau's comments centered around Trump's lack of understanding when it comes to worldwide trade.

The U.S. -Canada spat escalated when at a news conference, Trudeau said Canada would take retaliatory measures next month in response to Trump's decision to slap tariffs on steel and aluminum imports from Canada, Mexico and the European Union.

"I get into Air Force One, the television's on, and I see a news conference being given by the prime minister of Canada", Trump said.

Navarro lashed out on Fox News following a multi-day tirade by Trump and his administration over trade and Canada's response to tariffs imposed by the U.S.

The comments dashed hopes that Trump had moved on from what he believed to be was a "dishonest" action by Trudeau.

One particular source of his ire recently has been Canada's supply management system, which levels tariffs of up to 300 per cent on imported dairy products.

Trump says does not endorse G7 communique, after 'weak' Trudeau comments
The EU then announced retaliatory tariffs on USA goods ranging from Harley-Davidson motorcycles to bourbon. The tariffs, which also take effect July 1, will last until the US ends its trade action.

President Donald Trump shakes hands with North Korea leader Kim Jong Un during their first meetings, June 12, 2018 in Singapore.

"He followed up by asking why the United States should "allow countries to continue to make "massive trade surpluses", asserting that it is "not fair to the people of America" and that the United States is suffering under a "$800 billion trade deficit".

Similarly, former interim Conservative leader Rona Ambrose, also a member of the NAFTA advisory group, said Trudeau is doing the right thing.

His apology came days after Trump and Trudeau verbally sparred over the G7 summit in Canada. "This is about our economy and millions and millions of jobs".

The United States imposed new tariffs on Canadian steel and aluminum less than two weeks ago on a "national security" basis.

As we've argued elsewhere, Trump appears to be targeting allies as a means of rupturing their mindset-convincing them that they are no longer deserving of American coddling just because of their geopolitical status.

Freeland's visit is part of a broader Canadian effort to underscore the importance of the US-Canada relationship and particularly their trade ties - an effort that began even before Trump took office.

No, if Mr. Trump really was as offended as he makes out, it wasn't caused by a Canadian failure to realize that American eyes are watching. "We're partners in the defense of North America", he said.
