Trump adviser apologizes for 'inappropriate' comments targeting TrudeauSHARE:sharetweetshareemail

Mr. Trump called Trudeau "very dishonest & weak" for his objections to the US tariffs.

"My job was to send a signal of strength", he said.

Navarro made his apology on Tuesday while speaking at the Wall Street Journal's CFO conference, an annual meeting of the newspaper's editors and chief financial officers from some of the world's most influential companies.

"I used language that was inappropriate", he said, according to Journal reporters.

Peter Navarro had said on Sunday there was a "special place in hell for any foreign leader that engages in bad-faith diplomacy" with Mr. Trump "and then tries to stab him in the back on the way out the door".

Noting the president said last week the most important part about his upcoming meeting with Kim Jong-un os "attitude", Heyman argued Trump "has had a really bad attitude with his partners and his allies".

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.

Trump announced on Saturday that he would not sign the standard Group of Seven (G-7) communique at the end of the summit - after Trudeau announced that all of the group's members had come to an agreement.

Uber, Lyft want to scoot you around San Francisco
Lyft and Uber represent just two of the 12 firms that have applied for permits to operate motorised scooters in San Francisco. While the city is processing the permits, no company is allowed to have its scooters on city streets.

Earlier on Tuesday at the Washington conference, White House Council of Economic Advisers Chairman Kevin Hassett said the USA and Canada need to "take a deep breath".

"I think it's a very fair question", he said.

On Tuesday, Trump said: "We have a big trade deficit with Canada.it's close to US$100 billion a year deal loss".

"We are being taken advantage of by virtually every one of those countries", Trump told a news conference on Tuesday. He learned. You can't do.

"What I will tell you is that we have benefited tremendously from free trade as a state".

The relationship between the US and its allies was already off-balance after Mr. Trump just a week before the summit imposed 25% tariffs on steel and 10% tariffs on aluminum from the European Union and Canada.

And it concludes with a direct shot at Trump, calling on the House to "reject disparaging and ad hominem statements by USA officials which do a disservice to bilateral relations and work against efforts to resolve this trade dispute".

Canada is the U.S.'s largest trading partner, and the US economy would struggle to make up for Canada's absence, Heyman noted.
