  • US Amb. Bruce Heyman: They 'Punched Canada in the Face'

After lashing out at Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau on Twitter and calling him "very dishonest" and "weak", the US President seems happy with Canada again.

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.

Importantly, it was Mr. Trump who delivered a barn-burner news conference, hours before Mr. Trudeau's.

As the summit closed on Saturday, Trudeau issued a rebuke of Trump's proposed tariffs, declaring that Canada would not be "bullied" by the U.S. That prompted a biting response from Trump, who called the Canadian premier "very dishonest" and "weak". Trump's chief economic adviser Larry Kudlow accused Trudeau of "stabbing the United States in the back" and said Trump's Canadian counterpart had attempted to undermine the president on the eve of an important summit with North Korea.

"Obviously we support the continuing efforts by the President on North Korea", the Canadian prime minister said.

After Trump left the event, he launched a scathing attack on Canada's tariffs, while Trudeau called the US president's steel and aluminum imports tax "kind of insulting", and insisted that Canadians "will not be pushed around" when it comes to further talks.

The Trump administration's tariffs amount to 25 per cent import duties on steel and 10 per cent on aluminum.

Both aides accused Mr Trudeau of betraying Mr Trump when he gave a news conference after the USA president had departed.

One person she said was surprisingly kind was Tom Wold of Darwin, the owner of the truck. The exhaust pipe was briefly on display at a local bar.

Mr. Trump called Trudeau "very dishonest & weak" for his objections to the USA tariffs.

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. "In conveying that message, I used language that was inappropriate and basically lost the power of that message".

The admission was a rare act of contrition from U.S. President Donald Trump's White House, where public apologies are few.

Trump once again went after Trudeau for what Trump considers unfair trading practices.

The attacks against Canada didn't end there, on Sunday, economic advisor Larry Kudlow accused Canada of stabbing the U.S.in the back.

"That's going to cost a lot of money for the people of Canada", the irate president said. I have a good relationship with Justin Trudeau.

"The idea that we could impose a national security threat to you is more than absurd, it's hurtful", she said at an event hosted by Foreign Policy, where she accepted the news magazine's Diplomat of the Year award.

Corker said there's no question Trump has damaged relations with Canada, but he hoped cooler heads would prevail.
