Trump says has good relationship with Canada's Trudeau after G7 meeting

"I own that, that was my mistake, my words".

Trump took time at his news conference to explain a photo that went viral from the G7 summit.

President Donald Trump's disavowal of a joint statement after the Group of Seven meeting was made to avoid looking weak going into the North Korea summit after "sophomoric" comments by Canada's Justin Trudeau, a top aide said. He then added a 10% tariff on aluminum imported from those parts of the world. Trudeau's comments centered around Trump's lack of understanding when it comes to worldwide trade.

"The problem was that in conveying that message I used language that was inappropriate", he said.

"I see the television and he's giving a news conference about how he "will not be pushed around" by the United States".

The increasingly hostile comments from the Trump administration come after Trudeau called the president's tariffs "insulting" and vowed to "move forward with retaliatory measures on July 1, applying equivalent tariffs to the ones that Americans have unjustly applied to us" at a press conference on Saturday.

Mr. Navarro made it clear the comments referred to Mr. Trudeau. The president also repeated claims that Canada overtaxes American dairy products under its supply management system and complained about Canadian automobiles flooding the US market.

Trump says he watched that news conference on his way to Singapore, and was upset because he thought he and Trudeau had had a positive meeting in Charlevoix. I think he should apologize to the prime minister.

North Korea media breaks tradition to report summit
What's more, the official U.S. "memorandum of conversation", or "MemCom", of that meeting was written by the longtime U.S. More recently, Trump has suggested he will raise human rights issues with Kim.

The president's smart call to eliminate not only tariffs but also subsidies complicates his complaint about Canada's tariffs on American dairy products because the USA dairy sector is massively subsidized by the federal government.

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

Chris Coons, a Democrat on the Senate Foreign Relations, told MSNBC Trump had welcomed authoritarian leaders in other countries even as he "picks fights as he just did at the G7 with our longest, oldest closest allies: democracies, developed Western countries like Canada".

Republican senators sharply criticized Navarro on Monday.

Heyman waged a campaign on Twitter to persuade Navarro to apologize by saying he was contacting US politicians about his remarks.

"That's why our allies have to be baffled at this". For example, a 2010 study by European economists estimating the effect of totally eliminating all trade barriers between the United States and the European Union found that that would boost incomes in the E.U.by as much as $86 billion and incomes in the U.S.by as much $82 billion annually. Now we're running away from it. But the president broadsided his allies after leaving the meeting by disavowing a joint statement the US had agreed to, criticizing Trudeau and vowing tariffs on automobiles.

Canadian Foreign Affairs Minister, Chrystia Freeland, is expected to travel to Washington this week, Canadian newspaper The Globe and Mail reported.
