WH Adviser Apologizes For 'Special Place In Hell' For Trudeau Remark

"There's a lot of concern being expressed about where this might go", Easter said as he entered the House of Commons. You said that that came from Air Force One.

"I own that, that was my mistake, those were my words", Navarro said.

"[Trudeau] really kind of stabbed us in the back", Kudlow said. "Other than he had a news conference that he had because he assumed I was in an airplane and I wasn't watching". He learned. You can't do that.

At a press conference on Tuesday, Trump said Trudeau's comments at a press conference after the G7 summit in Canada would "cost a lot of money for the people of Canada".

Peter Navarro is President Donald Trump's National Trade Council adviser. He blamed Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau's statement afterward that Canada would not be "pushed around". Chief economic advisor Larry Kudlow, who is now recovering from a heart attack, accused the Canadian leader of betraying the U.S.

Following Trump's departure from the G7 summit, Trudeau said Saturday at a press conference that USA steel and aluminum tariffs against Canada on national security grounds were "kind of insulting" and that Canada "will not be pushed around".

United Nations condemns excessive Israeli force against Palestinians

United Kingdom government faces more bruising Brexit debate in Commons
Rosie Duffield then quit after the vote, which saw the House of Commons reject the proposed amendment by 327 votes to 126. And if there is still no agreement before February 15 parliament would vote on whether to take over the Brexit process .

Fed interest rate: Federal Reserve hikes interest rate another quarter point today
After years in which the economy expanded at roughly a tepid 2 per cent annually, growth could top 3 per cent this year. That compares with March's forecasts for 3.8 per cent this year and 3.6 per cent in the following two years.

While it is easy to dismiss such language as characteristic Trump hyperbole, weaponized to soften up negotiating partners, it is notable that the president's recently imposed tariffs on steel, aluminum, washing machines, and solar panels actually reflect, remarkably, "worse than China" thinking.

A day before, White House economic adviser Larry Kudlow had also lashed out at Trudeau.

A former USA ambassador to Canada called on Trump trade adviser Peter Navarro to apologize for saying "there's a special place in hell" for Trudeau, whom he accused of practising "bad-faith diplomacy" at the weekend G7 summit in Quebec. "And this was particularly important on the eve of a far more important summit in Korea".

"So you know, it is something that we have discussed, and Canada is certainly prepared for any eventuality", said Freeland.

"Certainly having officials in one government criticize the head of government in another country, I don't think I've ever seen that before", he said. Perhaps they were trying to show the power they have. Americans are thankful for Canadian artists like Leonard Cohen, Celine Dion and Drake as well as more significant historical acts like when the people of Gander, Newfoundland took in those whose planes were grounded in the town following the 9/11 attacks. The relationship between the two leaders appears to have soured since comments were made regarding USA tariffs on Canadian steel and aluminum imports.

Trump's attacks arrive as the United States and Canada renegotiate the North American Free Trade Agreement alongside Mexico. "According to a Canada release, they make nearly 100 Billion Dollars in Trade with USA (guess they were bragging and got caught!)". That figure adjusts to a $17.5 billion trade deficit when services are excluded, according to the USTR.
