P.E.I. premier supports Trudeau trade retaliation

"My mission was to send a strong signal of strength", Navarro said at the event, according to the Journal. "I really did. Other than he had a news conference that he had cause he assumed I was in an airplane and I wasn't watching".

Trudeau had attempted to keep relations cordial in comments to reporters as he arrived at a cabinet meeting in Ontario.

"If Kim Jong Un reverses his commitments. then what the president said about Justin Trudeau will be repeated 10-fold about Kim Jong Un", Cotton told the Hugh Hewitt syndicated radio talk show.

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

At the G7 summit in Canada last weekend, Trump left early and flew out in Air Force One and Trudeau held a press conference where he was critical of the metal tariffs and said Canada "will not be pushed around" by the U.S.

Navarro then went on Fox News and harshly criticized Trudeau in one of the fiercest attacks aimed at a foreign head of state by a relatively obscure administration official.

President Trump is accusing the country's prime minister of making false statements, and the president's trade adviser saying there's "a special place in hell" for the leader of Canada, our biggest trading partner in all of the world, our best friend from way back in World War II and every time in between. This triggered a fiery response from U.S. President Donald Trump, who called Trudeau "very dishonest and weak" on the same day. "The problem is that in conveying that message I used language that was inappropriate".


"I do think it's an abuse of presidential authority to use the 232 waiver, and I've tried to pass a piece of legislation on the floor to counter that", Corker said after the meeting with Freeland.

The feud escalated on Friday and Saturday as Trump called for Russian Federation to be readmitted to the G-7, a group of leading industrialized nations, and declared after he left the summit that the us would not endorse a joint communique issued by the group.

European Council President Donald Tusk tweeted: "There is a special place in heaven" for Trudeau.

Bruce Heyman, a former USA ambassador to Canada, said Mr Navarro had "crossed a line".

The motion calls on the House to recognize the importance of Canada's "long-standing, mutually beneficial trading relationship" with the US, "strongly oppose" the "illegitimate tariffs" imposed on steel and aluminum, stand "in solidarity" with the Trudeau government's decision to impose retaliatory tariffs and remain united in support of the supply management system of regulating Canada's dairy and poultry industry. Talking to CNN's "State of the Union" Trump's chief economic adviser, Larry Kudlow, called Trudeau a betraying back-stabber. It also acknowledges that they stand by the Trudeau government's retaliatory tariffs and other trade measures. But he also said that critical comments from Justin Trudeau would cost Canada "a lot of money". "We must put the American worker first!" he wrote in one his tweets.

The EU has "a $151 billion surplus" which it should use to fund "military", said Trump Monday, referencing what Trump believes is the US' outsized financial contribution to North Atlantic Treaty Organisation.
