"My mission was to send a strong signal of strength", Navarro said at the event, the Journal reported. "In conveying that message I used language that was inappropriate". "I own that, that was my mistake, my words", the trade adviser said.
"In a matter of seconds, you can destroy trust with 280 Twitter characters", German Foreign Minister Heiko Maas said when asked about Mr Trump's U-turn, adding it would take much longer to rebuild lost trust.
President Donald Trump is still angry at Justin Trudeau for a perceived slight during a speech by the Canadian Prime Minister following the G-7 meeting.
Yet even as it did so, some in this country were calling for major reforms to the very system of protections for Canada's dairy, egg and chicken farmers that first ignited - and has continued to sustain - Trump's anger: supply management.
Trudeau said during a news conference after the Group of Seven (G-7) summit on Saturday that it was "kind of insulting" that the US implemented steel and aluminum tariffs against his country on the basis of national security.
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.
Trump's attacks have Canadian businesses that use aluminum and steel very anxious, said Ontario Conservative MP John Brassard, who added that there is real concern that there will be serious job implications in very short order.
Chancellor Angela Merkel said in a television interview Sunday that Trump "is right to a certain extent" when he criticized Germany for spending only 1.3 percent of economic output on defense, short of the 2 percent guideline set by North Atlantic Treaty Organisation.
On Fox News Sunday, White House Director of Trade Policy Peter Navarro also defended the president with adversarial language.
Trump didn't miss the opportunity to tweet again Monday, slamming Trudeau for acting "hurt when called out!"
Over the weekend, President Trump suddenly retracted his endorsement of the final joint statement by the G-7 summit of world leaders, tweeting afterward he had instructed representatives "not to endorse" it. "That's going to cost him a lot of money". Trudeau's office, in turn, said what the Canadian leader said on Saturday was nothing new.
But Kudlow said he doesn't know whether there will be a deal and that Trump had no alternative but to respond the way he did to Trudeau's "very unfortunate" statements. The U.S.at the end of May imposed tariffs of 25 percent on steel imports and 10 percent on aluminum imports against Canada, Mexico and the European Union.
"Sometimes when we think about tariffs, when we think about a trade war, we lose sight of the real impact, and that's on workers", Singh told a news conference on Parliament Hill.
