GOP scolds Trump team for feud with Canada

George said Trump's tariffs are going to

President Trump said Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau had "learned" from his decision to criticize US trade policy even as he downplayed tensions that erupted after a recent meeting with allies. "In conveying that message I used language that was inappropriate".

Navarro added that while these were his own words, they reflected the "the sentiment that was on Air Force One". Asked if he were apologizing to Trudeau, he responded, "Yeah, absolutely". He said Trudeau's promise to follow through with tariffs on U.S. goods - a response to Trump's own tariffs on steel and aluminum imports from Canada, Mexico, and the European Union - would hurt the Canadian economy. "I'm pretty sure that circles of hell are not reserved for Canadians proposing retaliatory tariffs", Sen.

Trump's latest twitter tirade came after he arrived in Singapore for his summit with North Korea's Kim Jong-un.

Many compared Trudeau's statement to the scene in 2003 holiday classic "Love Actually", in which Hugh Grant, playing the British prime minister, stands up to the American president, played by Billy Bob Thornton, during a press conference.

This seems to have been what Trump was referring to when he tweeted: "Fair Trade is now to be called Fool Trade if it is not Reciprocal". He was asked why he was jeopardizing relations with long-standing allies like Canada while welcoming a historical US enemy with open arms as a friend.

"I know my colleagues are hearing from numerous businesses and manufacturers across the country very similar stories, that this trade dispute is probably two weeks away from affecting Canadians in a very real way", he said.

"Sorry, we can not let our friends, or enemies, take advantage of us on trade anymore".

The British government has been eager to sign a trade deal with the USA after the United Kingdom leaves the European Union next year. He then asserted multiple times to the room full of reporters that he has a "good relationship" with Trudeau. "Other than he had a news conference that he had because he assumed I was in an airplane and I wasn't watching".

Trump roiled the weekend Group of Seven meeting of industrialized nations in Canada by agreeing to a group statement on trade only to withdraw from it while flying to Asia. "He learned. You can't do that". We laughed. We had a very good relationship.

Members of Trump's inner circle continued the attacks, with both chief economic adviser Larry Kudlow - who said that Trudeau had "stabbed us in the back" - and Peter Navarro, Trump's trade adviser, directing a series of stinging comments at the Canadian leader.

"On (Trump's) comments, I'm going to stay focused on defending jobs for Canadians and supporting Canadian interests".
