Trudeau: We support Trump's North Korea efforts, won't engage on comments

President Donald Trump says Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau "learned" from the mistake of criticising him and it's going to cost Canada "a lot of money".

"Let me correct a mistake I made", Navarro told the audience at the Wall Street Journal's annual CFO Network conference Tuesday.

Trudeau said that if Trump insisted on slapping steep tariffs on imported Canadian steel and aluminum, Canada would respond with retaliatory tariffs on United States imports.

The insults were supposedly a response to the post-G7 news conference in which Trudeau repeated his diplomatic criticism of Trump's steel and aluminum tariffs and said he would stand up for Canadians.

MacLauchlan also took the opportunity to affirm his support for the supply management system in Canada's dairy industry, which has been heavily attacked by members of the Trump administration.

On the way forward, Pompeo said, "I don't know exactly what the timing will be for our next conversation with the North Koreans". Should Trump agree to ease sanctions, Beijing is likely to be very willing to help North Korea rebuild its economy.

Navarro took the attack a step further on Sunday.

Navarro had told Fox News on Sunday that there was a "special place in hell" for the Canadian prime minister that "engages in bad-faith diplomacy" with U.S. President Donald Trump.

After Trump left the G7 gathering, he lashed out at Trudeau via Twitter, calling him "very dishonest and weak", among other things.

Navarro took a decidedly more conciliatory tone Tuesday, but still asserted that Trudeau had committed a "breach of protocol" that the Trump administration considered "inappropriate".

Over the weekend, President Trump suddenly retracted his endorsement of the final joint statement by the G-7 summit of world leaders, tweeting afterward he had instructed representatives "not to endorse" it.

But Trudeau's absence was also likely part of a deliberate strategy to not add fuel to the Trump fire.

"I see these short-term tensions against the backdrop of a long-term relationship", Byers said.

Speaking at the same forum as Navarro on Tuesday, White House Council of Economic Advisers Chairman Kevin Hassett said that the U.S. and Canada need to "take a deep breath". Talking to CNN's "State of the Union" Trump's chief economic adviser, Larry Kudlow, called Trudeau a betraying back-stabber.

The Trudeau government has announced it will impose dollar-for-dollar, retaliatory tariffs on metals and a range of other USA products by July 1.

"The idea that we could impose a national security threat to you is more than absurd, it's hurtful", she said at an event hosted by Foreign Policy, where she accepted the news magazine's Diplomat of the Year award.

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