Trump aide apologizes for 'inappropriate' comments on Trudeau

Trump said he chose to back out of the G7 communique after watching Trudeau's closing summit news conference, at which he warned that Canada would not be pushed around on tariffs - a point the Canadian prime minister had made several times before. "I really did. Other than he had a news conference that he had cause he assumed I was in an airplane and I wasn't watching".

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

After the G-7 summit, Trudeau hosted a news conference where he said that the Canadian government "did not take" the USA tariffs against Canada lightly.

Trump said on Twitter he found Trudeau's complaints about the new tariffs to be dishonest, and he explained the tariffs were in response to Canadian tariffs on dairy.

"Justin probably didn't know that Air Force has about 20 televisions", Trump said.

White House trade adviser weighs in on 'Fox News Sunday'. Canadians are "polite, we're reasonable, but we also will not be pushed around", Trudeau said. The country has rallied together, with public opinion polling showing there's wide support for Canada's retaliatory tariffs against the steel and aluminum duties that will kick in for some US goods on July 1. "(Trudeau) learned. You can't do that.

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

His apology comes amid a war of words between Trump and Trudeau after the G7 summit in Canada.

People close to the prime minister reject the suggestion he misread Trump and cite what they say is the president's highly unpredictable nature. "We just shook hands!'" Trump said. "I mean seriously, Russia, who took over Crimea, all the violence that's taken place in Ukraine, the poisoning of people in the United Kingdom, the influence in our election this last time period", Heyman recounted. "The Canadians will regret this action by their prime minister", Gorka said.

Trudeau had little to say about Trump's threats when asked on his way Tuesday to a Cabinet session with his ministers on Parliament Hill.

"Trump's disruptiveness is one thing, but his treatment of Canada and other USA allies is unprecedented", said Roland Paris, a University of Ottawa professor and former Trudeau foreign policy adviser.

The United States has imposed 25 per cent tariffs on steel from Canada, Mexico and the European Union, and 10 per cent tariffs on aluminum.

"I left the [G7] meeting and I'll be honest, we are being taken advantage of by virtually every one of those countries, very, very seriously", Trump said.

It is past time for Canada to return to active support for improved multilateral trade arrangements instead of the Harper/Trudeau policy of pursuing bilateral or regional agreements.
