Navarro apologizes for 'special place in hell' remark about Canada's prime minister

Canada's Prime Minister Justin Trudeau meets with U.S. President Donald Trump at the G7 leaders summit in La Malbaie Que. on Friday White House aide apologises over 'special place in hell' comment

In the lead-up to the G-7 summit, Trump engaged in a war of words with French President Emmanuel Macron and Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, who had both condemned the USA president's decision to impose steep tariffs on imported steel and aluminum from the European Union, Canada and Mexico.

Trump was furious after Trudeau had said at the end of a contentious economic summit in Quebec that he wouldn't let Canada be pushed around in trade relations with the United States.

"When we are criticized about some of our policies, one needs to look at the degree to which the USA and other countries both subsidize their agricultural industry and put up non-tariff barriers", David MacNaughton, Canada's ambassador to the United States, said a year ago.

Trump says Trudeau "probably didn't know that Air Force One has about 20 televisions". "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". We just shook hands. And, if I may quote the words of the great Bear Bryant, "when you make a mistake you should admit it, learn from it, don't repeat it".

Navarro, a supporter of tariffs to help reduce the United States trade deficit and a longtime critic of China, turned his anger at Canada over the weekend as a Group of Seven meeting hosted by Trudeau ended in disarray and trade threats.

Some of Trump's aides also lashed out at the Canadian prime minister.

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". Ottawa says it is discussing how it could help steel and aluminum workers affected by the recent imposition of US tariffs.

Gov. Phil Scott, who has consistently been a vocal advocate for maintaining the North American Free Trade Agreement - an arrangement Trump has threatened to abolish - said last week his administration has remained concerned about economic ties across the northern border. "$800 billion trade deficit", he tweeted on Monday.

Canada's supply management system for dairy, eggs, and poultry, limits production, and aims to avoid saturating the market, by keeping prices steady, and incomes steady for producers.

"Canada is not a country that we have trade issues with", Corker said. So far, numerous tariffs under discussion have been threatened but not yet implemented. That means the Canadian Border Services Agency would investigate to see if they were exporting at prices lower than their cost of production, or lower than the prices they get in their home US market.

In response to White House Trade Advisor Peter Navarro's comment, "there's a special place in hell for any foreign leader that engages in bad faith diplomacy", European Council president Donald Tusk retorted on social media defending the Canadian Prime Minister by saying "there's a special place in heaven for Justin Trudeau".

"They understand that we in Vermont value that relationship with Canada and we want to again come to some conclusion on that so that we can continue our trade with our largest trading partner", Scott said.
