Canada PM safe for now as Trump attacks, but angry farmers loom

Former US ambassador to Canada Navarro comments'unconscionable

"Let me correct a mistake I made", White House economic advisor Peter Navarro was quoted as saying at a Washington event organized by The Wall Street Journal.

"I own that, that was my mistake, those were my words", he said.

The economic summit, attended by Trump, Trudeau and other leaders of the Group of Seven advanced nations, concluded Saturday with Trump leaving early en route to Singapore.

Trump accused Trudeau of making "false statements", and tweeted that the Canadian leader was "very dishonest & weak" during negotiations.

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.

According to Trump's account of the moment, G7 attendees were content following the conclusion of the meetings until Trudeau took his stand.

He added, "PM Justin Trudeau of Canada acted so meek and mild during our G7 meetings only to give a news conference after I left saying that, "US Tariffs were kind of insulting" and he "will not be pushed around".

Canadian lawmakers unanimously voted to oppose the U.S.' "illegitimate tariffs" on Canadian steel and aluminum and condemned disparaging statements made by the Trump administration about Canada.

Both aides accused Trudeau of betraying Trump when he gave a news conference after the USA president had departed. "He'll learn, he can't do that", Trump said.

On Tuesday, Trump said: "We have a big trade deficit with Canada.it's close to $100 billion a year deal loss".

President Emmanuel Macron reacted with a statement slamming Mr Trump's behaviour at the summit.

"We've had American tariffs that have been put in overnight, Mr. Speaker".

The decision to back out of the communique was "in large part" because of the upcoming North Korea summit, Kudlow said.

In contrast, Trump was mostly smiles with North Korea's Kim Jong Un on Monday, and said talks between them were "top-of-the-line".

Freeland said she had a "good conversation" Sunday with US Trade Representative Robert Lighthizer, and that the pair would try to meet in Washington this week.

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

Mr Trump's comments were in response to a reporter's question about the status of his relationship with Mr Trudeau.

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

"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.

Trump had already roiled G-7 members ahead of the summit and raised fears of a trade war when he placed tariffs on steel and aluminum from Canada, the European Union and Mexico. "Politicians can get into disagreements and they can have heated disputes but you have to think about where does this go, how bad could it get and the disputes are over a really, really small share of GDP".
