Americans are thanking Canada to show their support for Trudeau

"I own that; that was my mistake, my words".

Navarro now regrets the "inappropriate" language he used, he admitted at a Wall Street Journal event on Tuesday. European Council President Donald Tusk tweeted: "There is a special place in heaven" for Trudeau.

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.

US President Donald Trump yesterday kept up his feud with America's closest allies over trade.

Navarro condemned Trudeau following the Canadian leader's news conference after his summit meeting with Trump and other G7 leaders.

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".

White House economic adviser Larry Kudlow on Sunday also accused Trudeau of having "stabbed us in the back" and engaging in a "sophomoric, political stunt for domestic consumption".

Both aides accused Mr Trudeau of betraying Mr Trump when he gave a news conference after the United States president had departed.

Trudeau said that if Trump insisted on slapping steep tariffs on imported Canadian steel and aluminum, Canada would respond with retaliatory tariffs on United States imports.

It's been such a rise in popularity that the company is planning on investing heavily in the title during the rest of the year. Finding people to fill the 100 needed for each match would be a tall order for a game that wasn't as popular as Fortnite .

During a news conference, Trudeau had reasserted his opposition to U.S. tariffs on steel and aluminium, and vowed to press ahead with retaliatory moves on July 1.

"I actually like Justin, you know, I think he's good, I like him, but he shouldn't have done that", Trump said.

Trudeau's foreign minister responded by condemning "ad hominem attacks", and Germany and France criticised Trump's comments.

"That's going to cost a lot of money for the people of Canada", Trump said.

Following Trump's departure from the G7 summit, Trudeau said in a press conference that he told the US president that his steel and aluminum tariffs were "kind of insulting", that Canada "will not be pushed around" and that it would not hesitate to impose retaliatory measures.

Days later, Trump said that he had left the summit at that stage and was aboard Air Force One en route to Singapore when Trudeau gave the press conference.

"He is not going to permit any show of weakness on the trip to negotiate with North Korea, nor should he", Kudlow said.

"We are urging all sides to resolve their differences on trade amicably", she told reporters in Canberra on Tuesday.
