  • Trump Withdraws Endorsement Of G-7 Communique Over Trudeau Statements

"I own that, that was my mistake, those were my words", Navarro said.

"My mission was to send a strong signal of strength". "In conveying that message I used language that was inappropriate". Trudeau's comments centered around Trump's lack of understanding when it comes to worldwide trade.

UK Prime Minister Theresa May has paid tribute to Canadian PM Justin Trudeau's leadership after a G7 summit which she described as "difficult".

In a statement Monday, British Prime Minister Theresa May said: "I want to pay a particular tribute to Prime Minister Trudeau for his leadership and skillful chairing".

The Canadian lawmakers' solidarity came a day after White House trade adviser Peter Navarro said, "There is a special place in hell" for Trudeau for his "bad faith diplomacy" with Trump, as a dispute over trade escalated.

While making no direct criticism of Mr Trump, Mrs May told MPs: "This was a hard summit with, at times, some very candid discussions, but the conclusion I draw is that it is only through continued dialogue that we can find ways to work together to resolve the challenges we face".

Larry Kudlow, Trump's chief economic adviser, told CNN that Trudeau's press conference addressing Trump's actions was "a betrayal".

At a news conference Tuesday after his summit with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un, Trump recounted his recent tough exchanges with Trudeau.

The president said the drills cost the US a " tremendous amount of money ", and that South Korea hasn't always chipped in enough. CBS News' David Martin reports that Pentagon spokesperson Dana White said Defense Secretary James Mattis "was not surprised".

The United States has already imposed a 25% steel tariff on imports from Canada, Mexico, and the European Union.

"And that's what bad faith Justin Trudeau did with that stunt press conference", he added.

Navarro's willingness to walk back his outburst marked a departure from the Trump administration's never-say-you're-sorry approach to political crises.

"That's going to cost a lot of money for the people of Canada", Trump said.

Mr Trump said he chose to back out of the G-7 communique after watching Mr Trudeau's closing summit news conference, at which he warned that Canada would not be pushed around on tariffs - a point the Canadian prime minister had made several times before.

He called Mr Trudeau "dishonest & weak" after Mr Trudeau said at a news conference that Canada would retaliate for new United States tariffs. Trump reportedly pointed to specific trade deficits, particularly in the trade of goods, as evidence that the other leaders were taking advantage of the US.

"I know it didn't look friendly". And, if I may quote the words of the great Bear Bryant, "when you make a mistake you should admit it, learn from it, don't repeat it".
