Trump: Trudeau criticism will cost Canada `a lot of money´

President Donald Trump's trade adviser Peter Navarro expressed regret Tuesday for having said there is "a special place in hell" for Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau. "The problem was that in conveying that message, I used language that was inappropriate", he said.

"I don't care how mad, how angry you are, you don't treat the head of state of another country like that unless you are getting ready for a military engagement of some kind", he said.

Appearing on "Fox News Sunday", Navarro said: "There's a special place in hell for any foreign leader that engages in bad faith diplomacy with President Donald J. Trump".

The current troubles between Trump and Trudeau started when the United States announced it would place tariffs on steel and aluminum imports from key allies, including Canada.

Freeland said Tuesday that Trudeau had raised the auto issue in his bilateral meeting with Trump on Friday at the G7 summit.

"And he's giving a news conference about how he will not be pushed around by the United States".

Trump called Trudeau "dishonest" and "weak" in tweets following the summit on Saturday.

"In the long term, what we have in common as North Americans will ensure we overcome this period", says John Tousignant, executive director of the Franco-American Centre, based in New Hampshire.

The motion calls on the House to recognize the importance of Canada's "long-standing, mutually beneficial trading relationship" with the USA, "strongly oppose" the "illegitimate tariffs" imposed on steel and aluminum, stand "in solidarity" with the Trudeau government's decision to impose retaliatory tariffs and remain united in support of the supply management system of regulating Canada's dairy and poultry industry.

"Take any husband and wife, who are trying to learn to live together and raise a family, you're going to have tensions, but usually we overcome them", Klein said. And I say, push him around?

"I think that Justin probably didn't know that Air Force One has about 20 televisions", Trump said during a press conference Monday following his historic meeting with Kim Jong-un.

"We finished the (G7) meeting and really everybody was happy". But he also said that critical comments from Justin Trudeau would cost Canada "a lot of money". "(Trudeau) learned. You can't do that. He's railed many times in recent days against Canadian import duties of 270 percent on dairy.

Another thing buoying Trudeau has been the near-universal Canadian response to Trump's comments.

Showing support for industry amid the turmoil, Trudeau met Tuesday with a group of farmers in Ottawa who benefit from the supply management system that has drawn the ire of Trump.

"From the beginning we have said that our approach would be to work for the best possible outcome but to always be prepared for the worst, to have backup plans", she said. They take effect July 1.

"If it goes on for a while - and it would have to go on for a while - people might change their views, but I don't think this one incident is likely to have that effect".
