Trump aide apologizes for'inappropriate comments on Trudeau

White House trade adviser Peter Navarro has apologized for saying Justin Trudeau earned "a special place in hell" with his response to Donald Trump's complaints about US-Canada trade.

Canadian dairy farmers want trade negotiators to keep their hands off the protected sector in increasingly contentious talks with the United States, however loudly U.S. President Donald Trump demands greater access, an executive with Canada's biggest dairy lobby group said on Monday.

"I know it didn't look friendly", Trump said.

Trump didn't help matters by attacking pretty much everyone at the summit.

Former Conservative cabinet minister James Moore, a member of the government's advisory group on NAFTA, hailed Trudeau's approach, refusing to react to "the noise, the bluster, the Twitter, the emotional outbursts".

The president said he was annoyed by Trudeau's comments about not letting Canada get pushed around. "It's not the right approach", Moore said. He also weighs in on whether or not the G7 should allow Russian Federation back in. 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 Co., Ford Motor Co. and Fiat Chrysler Automobiles NV.

"It's kind of like ... if you were sitting with a friend and then out of the blue, you just punched them in the face", he said.

Smith further said Trump's latest attitude towards Trudeau isn't a new thing and he has "been kicking allies in the teeth his whole presidency".

In a press briefing ahead of the summit, National Economic Council Director Larry Kudlow listed trade and bilateral discussions with Trudeau and French President Emmanuel Macron as priorities at the summit. They accused Trudeau of betraying Trump and stabbing him in the back.

At a news conference on Tuesday after his summit with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un, Trump recounted his recent tough exchanges with Trudeau. "And I see the television, and he's giving a news conference about how he will not be pushed around by the United States".

"Not fair to the PEOPLE of America!" "The Canadians will regret this action by their prime minister", Gorka said.

"It's very unfair, and it's very unfair to our workers, and I'm gonna straighten it out. They're also anxious about the retaliatory measures that we will take".

"I own that, that was my mistake, those were my words", he added.

Navarro's willingness to walk back his outburst marked a departure from the Trump administration's never-say-you're-sorry approach to political crises.
