Trump trade adviser apologises for insulting Trudeau

Trump trade adviser apologises for insulting Trudeau

It was puzzling. Maybe, it was also a bit disturbing.

Although he insisted he had a good relationship with Mr Justin Trudeau, just days after leaving in disarray a G-7 summit the Canadian prime minister had hosted, Mr Trump took another dig at him, saying the USA had a big trade deficit with Canada and that "a little balance" was needed. Does anybody believe that makes sense?

Trump once called Kim "rocket man".

On Tuesday, Trump kept up the attack on Trudeau.

-Canada trade dispute following the weekend's G7 summit. "Everybody loves him and they love him for a reason".

Peter Navarro, President Donald Trump's hardline trade adviser, walked back inflammatory comments about Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau on Tuesday at a conference in Washington, DC.

"I had a good relationship with Justin Trudeau, I really did".

Trump announced aluminum and steel tariffs on Canada, Mexico, and the European Union last month, justifying them under a provision of trade law that allows protectionist measures on national security grounds. "It's kind of insulting".

Interested in Trump Administration?

Trump denied he made fun of the journalist. "A special place in hell and threats for a trusted, steady ally", Harper wrote. But don't be surprised if other world leaders decide it's in their interest to behave antagonistically toward America now that Trump has decided it's in his interest to do so to them. Justin Trudeau has his role in this global theatre as does Kim Jong Un.

Tesla Autopilot update to include first 'full self-driving features'
The Tesla Roadster will hit 100mph 2.3 seconds later, and Musk says it'll have a top speed of something like 250 miles per hour . By using multiple systems, Musk hopes it can be used to decelerate the auto and even provide thrust for sharp turns.

It's unclear what additional action the USA would take against Canada.

Navarro exacerbated bilateral tensions between the US and Canada on Sunday when he criticized Trudeau for double-crossing President Donald Trump.

Those comments came after Trudeau's closing news conference at the G7 summit in Quebec on Saturday, when the prime minister said he had pushed back against the Trump administration's tariffs on steel and aluminum. "He learned, that's going to cost a lot of money to the people of Canada". The motion was proposed by the opposition New Democratic Party, whose legislative chief Ruth Ellen Brosseau added: "While Canadians stand together, President Trump stands alone".

"I was frankly embarrassed - embarrassed for our country", Warner told Politico Money. That was a mistake.

Canadian leaders responded with restraint.

Asked if he was apologizing, Navarro said "yeah, absolutely".

Maybe it's time for Trump and Trudeau to get back on the same page. It has imposed new tariffs on Canadian steel, aluminum and lumber, is considering tariffs on cars and is seeking a rewrite of NAFTA. Their enemy is a risky man threatening to destroy the world.

The North Americans pledged their tournament would generate an $11 billion profit for Federation Internationale de Football Association - greater than any previous World Cup finals - a financial shot in the arm for world soccer's governing body, which has been rocked by a corruption and bribery scandal ensnaring top officials.

"You look at the relationship between Canada and United States, that boundary between us is the longest, most open successful unmilitarized boundary in the history of world", he said.
