White House aide apologises over 'special place in hell' comment

Shealah Craighead- the White House President Donald Trump and Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau walk in February 2017 at the White House in Washington D.C

A senior aide to US President Donald Trump apologized Tuesday for saying there was a "special place in hell" for Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, following the acrimonious Group of Seven summit.

Trump adviser Peter Navarro, meanwhile, said Tuesday he made a mistake when he said "there's a special place in hell" for Trudeau.

Navarro exacerbated bilateral tensions between the USA and Canada on Sunday when he criticized Trudeau for double-crossing President Donald Trump.

Navarro said Sunday that his sentiment came "right from Air Force One".

Navarro now regrets the "inappropriate" language he used, he admitted at a Wall Street Journal event on Tuesday. "I own that, that was my mistake, those were my words".

Among the many topics the president addressed with reporters afterward was his recent Twitter campaign against Trudeau, whom he has called "dishonest" and "weak".

Foreign Affairs Minister Chrystia Freeland is meeting with the influential U.S. Senate foreign relations committee in Washington and is expected to give a major foreign policy speech later today.


"... No, I have a good relationship with Justin Trudeau. He learned", Mr Trump said, wagging his finger.

Canada's sheltered dairy sector has drawn the ire of US President Donald Trump for its high tariffs, but US farmers say it is just as galling that exports have spiked from a country largely closed to importing dairy from other nations.

Trudeau's comments centered around Trump's lack of understanding when it comes to worldwide trade.

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

Both aides accused Trudeau of betraying Trump, a Republican, at a news conference held after the USA president had departed Canada.

"To protect our national security, the United States will implement specific investment restrictions and enhanced export controls for Chinese persons and entities related to the acquisition of industrially significant technology", in addition to the tariffs, the White House said in a May 29 announcement.

While uncertainty about the future of the trade deal remains, the Bank of México said the value of the peso against the USA dollar is one of the variables that will suffer the most. "(Trudeau) learned. You can't do that. He then added a 10% tariff on aluminum imported from those parts of the world. "Politicians can get into disagreements and they can have heated disputes but you have to think about where does this go, how bad could it get and the disputes are over a really, really small share of GDP".
