Trump adviser apologizes for 'inappropriate' comments targeting Tru..

13 June 2018

Former US ambassador to Canada Bruce Heyman said Monday that White House trade adviser Peter Navarro's comments about Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau were "unconscionable".

US President Donald Trump and Canada's Prime Minister Justin Trudeau clashed after the G7 conference in Quebec over the weekend. "And that's what bad faith Justin Trudeau did with that stunt press conference".

He also said the US had a trade deficit of $17 billion with Canada, though he implied that it might be as large as $100 billion.

Trump has consistently railed against what he claims are unfair trade practices by some of America's biggest trade partners, including Canada - in particular Canada's supply management system, which levels tariffs of up to 300 per cent on imported dairy products.

Speaking at the WSJ CFO conference, Navarro also had harsh words for China, which he described as engaging in "economic aggression" against the US.

European Council President Donald Tusk used Navarro's phrasing in a tweet backing Trudeau later Sunday.

During a press conference after the summit, Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau flatly rejected a proposal by the White House to insert a sunset clause in a re-negotiated North American Free Trade Agreement.

Kudlow sought to tie Trump's reaction to the upcoming summit with Kim Jong Un, saying the North Korean leader "must not see American weakness". We just shook hands.

Heyman added he's "of course ... embarrassed" about Trump's behavior during the G-7 meeting, arguing the United States "was doing everything it could do to disrupt this meeting".

"We finished the (G7) meeting and really everybody was happy". "I think he's good".

Following his departure from the summit Saturday evening, Trump tweeted that Trudeau was "Very dishonest & weak" during the summit, drawing criticism from lawmakers on both sides of the aisle, including Arizona Republican Sen.

Macron and Trudeau had criticized Trump's tariffs on imports of aluminum and steel into the country, with Macron suggesting that the USA could be excluded from a joint statement. It came in sharp contrast to a roar of disapproval among Canadian politicians, who banded together across party lines to denounce Trump's attack and praise the bilateral and trading relationship between the two neighbors.

He suggested the stadiums could add cafes and shopping malls to boost their profitability once the competition is over. The Russian government says total World Cup costs are around $11 billion, not including some infrastructure spending.

But Arizona Sen. John McCain, who is often aligned with Graham, pushed back Saturday against Trump's refusal to sign the G-7 statement.

White House economic adviser Larry Kudlow and trade adviser Peter Navarro drove the message home in an extraordinary assault on a close U.S. ally and neighbour.

- "Canada charges the USA a 270% tariff on Dairy Products! Well, the in-factual, the non-factual part of this was they have enormous tariffs", Kudlow said.

Bilous said there are still strong trade opportunities with the United States.
