Trump aide sorry for 'place in hell' quip

Trump: Trudeau criticism will cost Canada `a lot of money´

Asked if he was apologising for the comments, Navarro said: "Yeah, absolutely".

"In conveying that message, I used language that was inappropriate and basically lost the power of that message", Navarro said at the Wall Street Journal's annual CFO Network conference.

In Singapore, Trump announced that the United States would halt certain military drills with South Korea, while Kim committed to vague promises to ramp down the North Korean nuclear program.

Navarro made the comment about the prime minister on "Fox News Sunday", responding to a news conference Trudeau held at the Group of Seven summit last week. "And that's what bad-faith Justin Trudeau did with that stunt news conference".

Navarro, for his part, suggested that he was following orders - but made a poor choice of words in doing so.

Navarro said he had been trying to use strong words to back Mr. Trump's trade stance but went too far. "I have a good relationship with Justin Trudeau - I really did, other than he had a news conference that he had because he assumed I was in an airplane", the USA president said at a news conference.

Trudeau said the Liberal government looks forward to the details of the agreement that emerged from Monday's historic meeting between Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong Un. Trudeau - and other world leaders - also raised concerns about the US's new tariffs during the G7 summit in Quebec, Canada.

Trudeau struck a steady-as-he-goes pose after Trump's latest dig, telling reporters, "I'm going to stay focused on defending jobs for Canadians and supporting Canadian interests".

But Trump didn't seem impressed by the comment.

Mattis not surprised by Trump's call to end military exercises: Pentagon
That U.S. command said it had "received no updated guidance on the execution or cessation of training exercises". According to Trump, the suspension of joint exercises with South Korea will help to save a lot of money.

The United States imposed new tariffs on Canadian steel and aluminum less than two weeks ago on a "national security" basis. And I say, 'Push him around?

Freeland said she had a "good conversation" Sunday with US Trade Representative Robert Lighthizer, and that the pair would try to meet in Washington this week.

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.

He said it "didn't look friendly" but it was "very friendly". "It's very unfair, and it's very unfair to our workers, and I'm gonna straighten it out".

The tariffs "could really, really cause a cascading descent into an all-out trade war", Herman added, warning that even though reciprocal auto tariffs would end up hurting both Canadians and Americans, it's tough in this case to expect rationality. 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. Under his administration, the US has already clobbered its top export market on trade, running a $2.7 billion surplus, according to the Bureau of Economic Analysis. Some of Trump's aides also lashed out at the Canadian prime minister.

In New Hampshire, which counts Quebec as its largest trading partner and where almost a quarter of the population has French-Canadian roots, Tousignant doesn't believe a few undiplomatic words will do much to sour relations between "cousins". "This is about our economy and millions and millions of jobs". Among other things, she said the government should be preparing to keep pace with corporate tax cuts and tax breaks south of the border.

Canadian officials have stressed the two countries' extensive trading relationship and pointed out that Canada is the top export destination for 35 US states and that 9 million jobs in the United States depend on trade with its northern neighbor.

A recent report by the Peterson Institute for International Economics found that blanket 25-per-cent tariffs on automobile imports to the US, including auto parts, would reduce production by 1.5 per cent and could cause job losses of 195,000 in the USA over the first three years, and would affect $200 billion in US imports.
