WH adviser Navarro apologizes for 'special place in hell' slam at Trudeau

WH adviser Navarro apologizes for 'special place in hell' slam at Trudeau

Hmmm. Normally, the modus operandi for Trump administration officials precludes any recourse to apologies.

Watch the clip above, via ABC News.

"I used language that was inappropriate and basically lost the power of that message", Navarro said in an interview at the Wall Street Journal's CFO Network. "In conveying that message I used language that was inappropriate".

Asked if he were apologizing to Trudeau, he responded, "Yeah, absolutely".

"It's uncalled for. Just absolutely uncalled for", Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas, added.

Trump - by then in the air, bound for Singapore to meet with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un - vented on Twitter.

He'll learn, he can't do that, ' Trump said of Trudeau's criticism. The Trudeau government has announced it will impose dollar-for-dollar, retaliatory tariffs on metals and a range of other US products by July 1.

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

He also played for both Real Madrid and Barcelona, although he only played one league game for Madrid , and five for Barcelona. Tottenham boss Mauricio Pochettino has been linked with the Bernabeu post but they have agreed a deal with Lopetegui.

US President Donald Trump on Tuesday (Jun 12) kept up his feud with America's closest allies over trade, saying he could not allow them to continue taking advantage of the United States.

"We have a big trade deficit with Canada". "Look, countries can not continue to take advantage of us on trade". "I was riding where, oh, it's actually a surplus".

Mr Trump was furious after Mr 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. I really did, other than he had a news conference, that he had because he assumed I was in an airplane and I wasn't watching.

Trudeau said that if Trump insisted on slapping steep tariffs on imported Canadian steel and aluminum, Canada would respond with retaliatory tariffs on USA imports. "He learned. You can't do that".

Trump followed through on his tweet by pulling USA support for a G-7 communique. "I think he's good". Trump's decision not to sign the joint statement that came out of the G7 meeting was a response to Trudeau's press conference, according to White House Economic Adviser Larry Kudlow.

The communique - which had appeared to have papered over the cracks that surfaced at the summit - said the leaders of the US, Canada, Britain, France, Italy, Germany and Japan agreed on the need for "free, fair, and mutually beneficial trade" and the importance of fighting protectionism.

"We've got to look at what supports are available to ensure that if their jobs, their livelihoods are compromised, what can the government do to support these folks".
