Trump adviser apologizes for saying Trudeau has ‘special place in hell’

Trump and Aides throw insults at Trudeau - It is hard to conceive how a leader of one of the largest countries in the world, President Donald J. Trump of the US could throw insults of the type which are alike to a child having a temper tantrum - at one of his country's closest allies, Canada's Prime Minister Justin Trudeau. "I own that; that was my mistake, my words".

"I used language that was inappropriate", he said, according to Journal reporters. Trudeau's comments centered around Trump's lack of understanding when it comes to worldwide trade.

His tweet, shortly after leaving Charlevoix in Quebec, came in response to what he claimed were "false statements" by the summit host, Canadian premier Justin Trudeau.

In a statement Monday, British Prime Minister Theresa May said: "I want to pay a particular tribute to Prime Minister Trudeau for his leadership and skillful chairing".

On the eve of Mr. Trump's meeting with Mr. Kim, one of the president's top trade advisers, Peter Navarro, said there was "a special place in hell" for leaders like Mr. Trudeau, accusing him of engaging in "bad-faith diplomacy" with Mr. Trump. Trump's chief economic adviser Larry Kudlow accused Trudeau of "stabbing the United States in the back" and said Trump's Canadian counterpart had attempted to undermine the president on the eve of an important summit with North Korea.

The criticism was echoed by White House economic adviser Larry Kudlow, who joined Trump at the G7 meetings.

Later during the show, Smith further said Trump's latest attitude towards Trudeau isn't a new thing and he has "been kicking allies in the teeth his whole presidency".

Trump has consistently been against what he considers unfair trade practices from America's biggest trade partners, which includes Canada, Mexico, and the European Union.

At his closing G-7 press conference on Saturday, Trudeau called USA steel and aluminum tariffs "insulting" and pledged to proceed with previously announced retaliatory tariffs.

"And that's what bad faith Justin Trudeau did with that stunt press conference", Navarro said.

All lawmakers gave a standing ovation for the government's response to the Trump administration's verbal attacks on Trudeau.

"Justin probably didn't know that Air Force One has about 20 televisions, and I see the television", Trump said. But he also said that critical comments from Justin Trudeau would cost Canada "a lot of money".

"According to a Canada release, they make nearly 100 Billion Dollars in Trade with United States (guess they were bragging and got caught!)".

"I think it's serious but because it's serious doesn't mean it's lethal".

Mr. Trump called Trudeau "very dishonest & weak" for his objections to the US tariffs.
