Americans are thanking Canada to show their support for Trudeau

However, Navarro says he used inappropriate language in trying to convey that message.

Canada moved to tamp down spiking tensions with the United States Tuesday, brushing aside a warning by US President Donald Trump that it will pay for Justin Trudeau's G7 summit remarks. It came from an older, more familiar problem: The U.S. President didn't grasp or care that there's politics in Canada, too.

Navarro exacerbated bilateral tensions between the USA and Canada on Sunday when he criticized Trudeau for double-crossing President Donald Trump. Trump and his inner circle were irked by Justin Trudeau's comments to media that Canada would not be "pushed around" by the US and will respond in kind to tariffs slapped on steel and aluminum on the "insulting" grounds of national security.

Trump gave a wide-ranging news conference in Singapore on Tuesday following his landmark summit with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un, in which the two leaders spoke for several hours.

One sure way to tell if this is White House strategy: wait to see if Navarro keeps his job after the apology, or if he comes under fire from Trump for showing weakness.

In addition to the trailer for the new Spider-Man game , the company also showed off some other high profile titles. For that matter, it didn't give any kind of hint about when we might expect the game to release.

But today he apologized for using language that counteracted his goal of sending a signal of strength.

Trudeau had said using national security as a justification for tariffs was "kind of insulting" to Canadian veterans who had stood by their United States allies in conflicts dating back to World War I.

At an event hosted by the Journal, Navarro said he had made a mistake, according to the newspaper. "Are those the ...words of the president towards Trudeau?"

The president said he was annoyed by Mr Trudeau's comments about not letting Canada get pushed around.

The horror! Who could have predicted that when Trump imposed steel and aluminum tariffs against Canada - citing national security concerns - the Canadians wouldn't be happy and might strike back? "I left the [G7] meeting and I'll be honest, we are being taken advantage of by virtually every one of those countries, very, very seriously", Trump said.

Earlier, Trump elaborated on his abrupt Twitter outburst as he departed the summit Saturday, telling a news conference in Singapore that Trudeau's assertion that Canada "will not be pushed around" would end up costing Canadians "a lot of money". "It was very friendly", Mr Trump said. He's railed many times in recent days against Canadian import duties of 270 percent on dairy.

The bust-up has sent relations between the United States and Canada, historically the closest of allies and trading partners, to a new low.

"Sorry, we can not let our friends, or enemies, take advantage of us on trade any more".
