Trump trade adviser: Harsh comments against Trudeau were a ‘mistake’

The eyebrows launched their own Twitter account late Saturday and have been tweeting ever since

White House Director of Trade Policy Peter Navarro apologized Tuesday for saying there was a "special place in hell" for Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau - calling his language "inappropriate".

As for Trump's own response, he predicted that Trudeau's remarks are going to cost Canada "a lot of money".

Fox News' Shepard Smith mocked President Donald Trump's feud with Canadian Prime Minister Justin Tudeau and the war of the words that followed and said the "U.S. might need a northern wall".

"In conveying that message I used language that was inappropriate and basically lost the power of that message", Navarro said.

- Dan O'Donoghue (@MrDanDonoghue) June 11, 2018The moment of levity comes amid increased trade tensions between the US and Canada.

He made the apology - something that former USA ambassador to Canada Bruce Heyman, among others, was demanding that he do - during a Wall Street Journal event today in Washington. "We just shook hands!'" Trump said.

Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross said "we'll see" when asked about plans to impose tariffs on Chinese imports, as the USA prepares to reveal its list of final targets this week.

"I'm not sure what activity he's asking me to undertake with either", May said amid laughter.

"We are being taken advantage of by virtually every one of those countries", Trump told a news conference on Tuesday. Kudlow told Tapper that Trudeau "did a great disservice" to the G7, and said that Trudeau had attacked Trump for "domestic consumption".

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. Trump repeated his criticism of Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau during the news conference.

In Canada Tuesday, commenting on the Trump-Kim summit, where the two leaders appeared very cordial and even smiling together, Trudeau said he supported Trump's efforts to reach a nuclear deal. "This is about our economy and millions and millions of jobs".

"We have a big trade deficit with Canada".

The United States has already imposed a 25% steel tariff on imports from Canada, Mexico, and the European Union. "The wounds will heal, but the question [is] how does the relationship get impacted?"

Canada is the U.S.'s largest trading partner, and the US economy would struggle to make up for Canada's absence, Heyman noted. "We must put the American worker first!"
