Trump's trade adviser apologizes for saying Trudeau has 'special place in hell'

After Mr. Trudeau's press conference, Mr. Trump said the steel tariffs were applied to Canada because of Canadian tariffs on USA dairy imports.

On the eve of Mr. Trump's meeting with Mr. Kim, one of the president's top trade advisers, Peter Navarro, said there was "a special place in hell" for leaders like Mr. Trudeau, accusing him of engaging in "bad-faith diplomacy" with Mr. Trump.

"My job was to send a signal of strength".

He made the comments Tuesday at an event of The Wall Street Journal CFO Network in Washington.

"That's unconscionable", Heyman said."Anybody who represents the United States of America from the White House using that kind of language with any world leader of any type, I think is uncalled for". I have a good relationship with Justin Trudeau.

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.

Earlier today, Trudeau cheered Trump's bid to broker a deal to rid the Korean Peninsula of nuclear weapons, but he stayed mum on the USA administration's persistent trash talk.

Greece had also blocked the country from negotiating with the European Union and North Atlantic Treaty Organisation . However, Tsipras said, this will be contingent on Macedonia completing the constitutional changes.

Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross said "we'll see" when asked about plans to impose tariffs on Chinese imports, as the USA prepares to reveal its list of final targets this week.

Earlier on Tuesday at the Washington conference, White House Council of Economic Advisers Chairman Kevin Hassett said the United States and Canada need to "take a deep breath".

The Canadian leader did not directly respond to Navarro's comments, but Foreign Minister Chrystia Freeland called the remarks not "particularly appropriate or useful" later Sunday. Trump said Monday that Kudlow was admitted to hospital after suffering a heart attack.

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

"Actually, we were just talking - the whole group - about something unrelated to everything, very friendly", Mr Trump said. "Our Tariffs are in response to his of 270% on dairy!" "It's very unfair, and it's very unfair to our workers, and I'm gonna straighten it out".

"Sorry, we can not let our friends, or enemies, take advantage of us on trade any more". "Other than he had a news conference that he had because he assumed I was in an airplane and I wasn't watching".
