Fox News' Shepard Smith mocked President Donald Trump's feud with Canadian Prime Minister Justin Tudeau and the war of the words that followed and said the "U.S. might need a northern wall".

U.S. 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.

"My job was to send a signal of strength", he said.

Peter Navarro told a business conference in Washington Tuesday that his comment about Mr. Trudeau's eternal damnation was "inappropriate". "In conveying that message I used language that was inappropriate".

Mr. Trump's top economic adviser, Lawrence Kudlow, said Mr. Trudeau's press conference had been a "betrayal" because Mr. Trump couldn't afford to show any weakness before his meeting with North Korea.

Trump says Trudeau "probably didn't know that Air Force 1 has about 20 televisions".

The U.S. -Canada spat escalated when at a news conference, Trudeau said Canada would take retaliatory measures next month in response to Trump's decision to slap tariffs on steel and aluminum imports from Canada, Mexico and the European Union. "Canadians are polite, we're reasonable, but we also will not be pushed around", Trudeau added. "I own that, that was my mistake, those were my words". "Using that type of language is not professional, it's not called for, and I tell you, I was deeply disappointed to see this lack of professionalism on his part".

The Canadian Prime Minister initially said Trump's claims that Canadian steel posed a national security threat were dishonest.

The motion, which Reuters noted was introduced by the opposition New Democrats, "rejects disparaging ad hominem statements by the U.S. Administration which do a disservice to bilateral relations and will fail to resolve this trade dispute".

"We have been encouraging the federal government to engage with China on free-trade talks because there is such significant potential in that market", said Bilous. "They don't take our farm products", Trump complained at the news conference Tuesday.

The Rust Belt has been one of the hardest regions hit because of US free trade with Mexico.

The United States has alienated Canada and other allies by imposing tariffs on steel and aluminium imports, arguing that they posed a threat to U.S. national security.
