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

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

Responding, Wallace said: "You used some very strong words, "stab in the back", "a special place in hell".

Navarro, in a Fox News interview on Sunday, condemned Trudeau after the Canadian leader's post-summit news conference following the summit with US President Donald Trump and other world leaders from the Group of Seven.

"We will continue to conduct our diplomacy the Canadian way, that is, being positive and constructive and firm in defending the interests of our industries.in diplomacy it doesn't really matter about personal feelings and personal comments", said Trade Minister Francois-Philippe Champagne when asked about the apology.

"It's kind of like ... if you were sitting with a friend and then out of the blue, you just punched them in the face", he said.

Trump said that he watched Trudeau's press conference aboard Air Force One and was stunned.

It's close to $100 billion a year loss with Canada. "Most inept and shameless Administration since Harding".

In a separate interview on CBS's "Face the Nation", Kudlow said the Trump had a "very successful, calm, friendly, respectful bilateral" with Trudeau and that the US won't withdraw from NAFTA.

The fight isn't just with Trudeau and Canada but with the best allies of the U.S., Democratic Senator Dianne Feinstein of California said on CNN. The president could have said that.

The suggestion to re-admit Russian Federation, expelled after its 2014 invasion of Crimea, was met by widespread skepticism; only new Italian Prime Minister Giuseppe Conte appeared to favor a return to a "G-8".
