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

The prime minister's silence on Monday came in sharp contrast to a roar of disapproval among Canadian politicians, who banded together across party lines to denounce Trump's attack and praise the bilateral and trading relationship between the two neighbours.

He made the apology - something that former US ambassador to Canada Bruce Heyman, among others, was demanding that he do - during a Wall Street Journal event today in Washington. They don't get to forget about that, because it's a big part of the job.

Klein, who has operated her business for 38 years, says she she believes Canadians understand the difference between political rhetoric and the opinions of everyday Americans. "The problem is that in conveying that message I used language that was inappropriate". "And I think what people need to do at this moment is take a step back", Hassett said.

Several leaders from the G-7 meeting - including Angela Merkel, Theresa May and Emmanuel Macron - either expressed support for Trudeau or criticized Trump.

Still, winning the public-relations war may not be enough for Trudeau to avoid additional USA trade penalties.

President Donald Trump has recently blasted several nations, including Canada, over what he has called unfair tariffs on USA goods.

"Justin probably didn't know that Air Force has about 20 televisions", Trump said. "Other than he had a news conference that he had because he assumed I was in an airplane and I wasn't watching".

"And I said, 'Push him around?' " Trump said, describing his reaction to the press conference. "He learned", Trump said wagging his finger.

Mr. Trump's complaint is that Canada-U.S. discussions went well behind closed doors at the G7 meeting in La Malbaie, Que., but Mr. Trudeau made it sound different in public. The U.S.at the end of May imposed tariffs of 25 percent on steel imports and 10 percent on aluminum imports against Canada, Mexico and the European Union. Mr. Navarro made it clear the comments referred to Mr. Trudeau.

A spokeswoman for Trudeau, Eleanore Catenaro, declined to comment on Navarro's acknowledgement of a mistake.

Trudeau has declined to directly respond to Trump's criticism of him.

Trump is targeting Canada's supply management system for dairy and poultry as unfair, even though the US runs a $333 million trade surplus with Canada on dairy and a $1.9 billion trade surplus in agriculture and agi-food. Any Canadian PM would have to show some resolve - Stephen Harper might have chosen more cautious language, but he would have sent the same message.

The escalating clash cast a shadow over the Trump's nuclear talks with Kim and led critics to question why the president was bashing USA partners while appearing to cozy up to one of Washington's bitterest long-time foes.
