U.S. President Donald Trump answers questions about the summit with North Korea leader Kim Jong Un during a press conference at the Capella resort on Sentosa Island Tuesday, June 12, 2018 in Singapore.

"Fair trade is now to be called fool trade if it is not reciprocal", he wrote in another, referring to Canada's allegedly unfair trading policy with the USA and continuing his personal twitter feud with Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau.

However, Navarro says he used inappropriate language in trying to convey that message. "I own that, that was my mistake, those were my words".

The admission was a rare act of contrition from US President Donald Trump's White House, where public apologies are few.

Canada's prime minister earned Trump's ire by giving a press conference, after the USA president left La Malbaie, in which he spoke critically of United States trade policy and said Canada would "move forward with retaliatory measures" in response to Trump's move to impose tariffs on aluminum and steel. In a series of angry tweets, Trump called Trudeau "very dishonest and weak" and said the U.S. won't be taken advantage of. "And that's what bad faith Justin Trudeau did at that stunt press conference". President Trump withdrew from the communique in a fit of rage on Saturday. That's what weak, dishonest Justin Trudeau did. He said Trudeau's promise to follow through with tariffs on United States goods - a response to Trump's own tariffs on steel and aluminum imports from Canada, Mexico, and the European Union - would hurt the Canadian economy.

The Trump administration took umbrage at an ally publicly criticizing US policy just before a historic meeting with Kim Jong-Un. "We just shook hands!'" Trump said Tuesday.

Trudeau had attempted to keep relations cordial in comments to reporters as he arrived at a cabinet meeting in Ontario. "So you're looking at a million jobs here in Ontario".

"He'll learn, he can't do that", Mr Trump said. He added that Canada will "move forward with retaliatory measures" on July 1 against the U.S. That warning is apparently what set Navarro off.

"My Fellow Americans, let's all #ThankCanada for things we love they've brought to our lives", he wrote, naming a number of people, including Drake, Leonard Cohen and comedy series SCTV.

NDP Leader Jagmeet Singh urged the federal government to get serious about drafting a rescue plan for steel and aluminum workers, who are going to feel the brunt of the initial impact of the dispute - and soon.

On Saturday morning, Canadian officials had also expressed a modest new feeling of optimism about talks on the North American free-trade agreement, and that that might be a way of getting an exemption to new USA tariffs on steel and aluminum.
