Former PM Mulroney says Trump rage at Trudeau a passing storm

Anti-U.S. consumer boycott? Canadians may find it hard to pull off

Anti-U.S. consumer boycott? Canadians may find it hard to pull off

At an event hosted by the Journal, Navarro said he had made a mistake, according to the newspaper.

He said he was trying to send a signal of strength on behalf of the administration, but that his language was inappropriate.

Peter Navarro is President Donald Trump's National Trade Council adviser.

Canada reacted coolly to the apology, with Mr Trudeau declining to answer when reporters asked him whether he accepted it. "Canadians are polite, we're reasonable, but we also will not be pushed around", Trudeau added.

Bruce Heyman, the former U.S. Ambassador to Canada, on Monday slammed Donald Trump's treatment of Justin Trudeau, and Canada in general, demanding the president apologize for his surrogate's claim there's a "special place in hell" for people like the Canadian prime minister.

At the summit's conclusion on Saturday, Trudeau reiterated that Ottawa was prepared to retaliate against the new tariffs if the United States did not back down, and said Canadians "would not be pushed around".

He delivered them the day after Trump himself criticized Trudeau and shortly after Trump's top economic adviser, Larry Kudlow, insulted Trudeau himself.

Members of Parliament gave unanimous consent for a motion backing Canadian steel and aluminium, hit by USA tariffs, as well as the supply management system that supports key agriculture sectors, and gave a standing ovation for the government response to the Trump administration's verbal attacks on Trudeau.

The United States has alienated Canada and other allies by imposing tariffs on steel and aluminum imports, arguing that they pose a threat to US national security.

Premier Wade MacLauchlan publicly expressed his support in the legislature for Prime Minister Justin Trudeau on Tuesday, in the wake of the growing U.S.

Soon after Trump left the G7 summit he tweeted that he had instructed the House of Representatives not to endorse the final communique of the G7 summit due to Trudeau's "false statements at his news conference", as the Canadian prime minister dismissed USA metal tariffs as "insulting" and announced retaliatory measures.

Navarro said Sunday that his sentiment came "right from Air Force One".

Trump went on to say that the USA gets "unfairly clobbered" on trade despite "protecting Europe at great financial loss".

On Tuesday, Trump kept up the attack on Trudeau.

"I think it's serious but because it's serious doesn't mean it's lethal".

He called Mr Trudeau "dishonest & weak" after Mr Trudeau said at a news conference that Canada would retaliate for new USA tariffs. And, if I may quote the words of the great Bear Bryant, "when you make a mistake you should admit it, learn from it, don't repeat it".
