Donald Trump's trade adviser is apologizing for saying there's a "special place in hell" for Prime Minister Justin Trudeau because of his "bad-faith diplomacy" during the G7 summit in Quebec.

"I used language that was inappropriate", Navarro was quoted as saying at a Washington event organized by The Wall Street Journal. "I own that. That was my mistake, my words".

Though Trudeau had made these comments many times before, Trump and his advisers quickly responded.

After leaving the summit early on Saturday, Trump fired parting shots at Trudeau from Air Force One after the prime minister told reporters that Canada would not be "pushed around" on tariffs.

In return, Trump accused Trudeau of being "weak and dishonest" and instructed US representatives not to endorse the G7 joint communique.

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

On Monday, MPs in the House of Commons approved a motion denouncing Trump's name-calling tirade and endorsing Trudeau's decision to stand his ground against US tariffs and tweeted presidential threats.

Weibo users who agreed it wasn't a Chinese proverb tried to guess what saying she may have been trying to reference. Others took the opportunity to create their own "Chinese proverb", while some accused her of spreading "fake news".

Most analysts agree that the tariffs would also be bad for the U.S. American consumers would have to pay US$5,000 to US$7,000 more for their vehicles on average, potentially reducing U.S. auto sales by 4 million to 5 million units a year, said DesRosiers, who called it "a nightmare scenario". The country has rallied together, with public opinion polling showing there's wide support for Canada's retaliatory tariffs against the steel and aluminum duties that will kick in for some US goods on July 1. "He'll learn, he can't do that", Trump said. And I say, 'Push him around?

The insults stemmed from a closing G7 press conference on Saturday in which Trudeau called USA steel and aluminum tariffs "insulting" and pledged to proceed with previously announced retaliatory tariffs.

"That's going to cost a lot of money for the people of Canada", he said of Mr. Trudeau's comments. "It was very friendly", Trump said. "(Trudeau) learned. You can't do that.

I have a good relationship with Justin Trudeau. "Our Tariffs are in response to his of 270% on dairy!"

Showing support for industry amid the turmoil, Trudeau met Tuesday with a group of farmers in Ottawa who benefit from the supply management system that has drawn the ire of Trump. At a news conference after his meeting with Kim, the president said the Canadian leader must not have realized that Trump had televisions on Air Force One, allowing him to monitor Trudeau's news conference at the end of the G-7 summit.

Freeland said Canada's approach to the trade talks remains unchanged: to work for a win-win-win compromise while being "absolutely resolute in defence of the national interest". The Trudeau government has announced it will impose dollar-for-dollar, retaliatory tariffs on metals and a range of other US products, starting July 1.

"I think we've simply got to continue and expand that effort that's been developed", Former Canadian Foreign Minister Lloyd Axworthy told the Canadian Broadcasting Corp. on Tuesday.
