Trump’s Trade Adviser Apologizes for ‘Inappropriate’ Trudeau Comments

Trump Adviser Says There’s A “Special Place In Hell” For Canadian PM Trudeau Trump backed out of G7 statement to avoid looking weak before Kim summit, aide says

He said there's still hope that stalled negotiations for a modernized North American Free Trade Agreement can be revived, provided Canada stays calm and measured in response to Trump's rants. Trump said Monday that Kudlow was admitted to hospital after suffering a heart attack.

Trump and his inner circle were irked by Justin Trudeau's comments to media that Canada would not be "pushed around" by the USA and will respond in kind to tariffs slapped on steel and aluminum on the "insulting" grounds of national security.

In a display of calculated aggression, Kudlow thumped the table as he told CNN's State of the Union Trudeau had "stabbed us in the back" and instigated "a betrayal".

He said they had a "great" relationship, and he thought they were on good terms at the end of the G7 summit - until he heard Mr Trudeau give a news conference in which he said Canada would not be "pushed around" by the US.

"I have instructed our U.S. Reps not to endorse the Communique as we look at Tariffs on automobiles flooding the U.S. Market!"

The evidence is conclusive that the USA loses hugely if the president launches a trade war and wins big if he chooses instead to wage trade peace.

Republican Senator Susan Collins of ME said that while her state has experienced "frictions" with Canada over lobsters and other goods, the USA should not be alienating one of its biggest trading partners. He also called Trump's meeting with North Korean ruler Kim Jong Un Tuesday "far more important" than the G-7. For instance, Trump's steel and aluminum tariffs are expected to cause a drag on United States economic growth and result in a net loss of American jobs. Trump tweeted Saturday, June 9, evening while en route to Singapore aboard Air Force One.

After enduring months of withering fire from Donald Trump's bombastic Twitter feed, Canada's dairy industry waded into the fray on Monday by accusing the US president of wanting to put Canadian farmers out of business. That increase would result in real income losses of 0.8 percent or more than $634 billion relative to baseline estimates after three years.

Burns, now a professor at Harvard University's Kennedy School, termed Navarro's comments "over the top embarrassing".

But Kudlow said he doesn't know whether there will be a deal and that Trump had no alternative but to respond the way he did to Trudeau's "very unfortunate" statements.

The vast majority of Republican voters, 75 percent, said they support tariffs on China, while a majority of Americans overall support tariffs on China as well. I think he should apologize to the prime minister.

Deron Bilous, Economic Development and Trade Minister in Alberta's NDP government, said Canada shouldn't back down.
