Navarro apologizes for harsh comment about Canada PM

He said there's still hope that stalled negotiations for a modernized North American Free Trade Agreement can be revived, provided Canada stays calm and measured in response to Trump's rants.

After Trump had left the summit in Quebec he rounded on Justin Trudeau personally, suggesting the Canadian Prime Minister was "very dishonest and weak" and "acts hurt when called out".

Behind his claim lies a difference in how the countries' calculate the trade figures.

The United States is now fighting with Canada on trade, and some comments from White House officials have been, well, less helpful than others.

If these goods that originate in Canada and are eventually sold there without have been substantially worked upon in the United States are taken into account then Ottawa comes out the victor.

However, on Monday, several MPs expressed concerns about the United Kingdom reaching any deal with the USA given President Trump's recent trade actions against Canada, the European Union and other countries. Ms.

This seems to have been what Trump was referring to when he tweeted: "Fair Trade is now to be called Fool Trade if it is not Reciprocal".

The British government has been eager to sign a trade deal with the USA after the United Kingdom leaves the European Union next year.

Trudeau kept silence after the personal attacks. "Least of all from subordinates of the president directed at the prime minister of their greatest friend and ally", he said.
