Bruce Heyman, the former U.S. Ambassador to Canada, on Monday slammed Donald Trump's treatment of Justin Trudeau, and Canada in general, demanding the president apologize for his surrogate's claim there's a "special place in hell" for people like the Canadian prime minister.

"My job was to send a signal of strength".

'I used language that was inappropriate and basically lost the power of that message, ' says Navarro.

Republican Senate Finance Chairman Orrin Hatch said the comment was "out of line", telling Politico the adviser "should have kept his big mouth shut because I don't think that helps us in foreign policy".

At the event, Trudeau said Canada would take retaliatory steps in response to Trump's steel and aluminum tariffs imposed on Canada and other allies.

Trudeau promised retaliatory measures against USA tariffs on Saturday evening after the summit, a move Navarro called "nothing short of an attack on our political system".

"And that's what bad-faith Justin Trudeau did with that stunt news conference".

"[Mr Trudeau] really kind of stabbed us in the back", Mr Kudlow, the director of the National Economic Council who had accompanied Mr Trump to the summit of wealthy nations on Saturday, said on CNN's State of the Union.

Canada's foreign minister, Chrystia Freeland, said her country "does not conduct its diplomacy through ad hominem attacks".

G7 leaders defend summit after Trump disowns free trade communique
Macron sees Merkel's support as crucial to carrying out his ambitious European Union reform agenda. But with an eye to the trade dispute, she added, "we won't be bamboozled - we will take action ".

If the USA imposes a 25 percent tariff on those exports, suddenly they don't make much economic sense, said Kristin Dziczek, vice president of industry, labor and economics at the Center for Automotive Research in Ann Arbor, Michigan.

The DFC's Wiens said giving up further market share would "make it very hard for us to continue the growth and investment we've seen in the past several years".

Trudeau himself was nowhere to be seen Monday, taking a break after hosting the tense, three-day summit, to which Trump arrived late, left early and then upended with a Twitter tirade from Air Force One.

Margaret Wente: Donald Trump has finally made us mad. He blamed Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau's statement afterward that Canada would not be "pushed around".

Following Trump's departure from the G7 summit, Trudeau said in a press conference that he told the USA 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.

But Kudlow said he doesn't know whether there will be a deal and that Trump had no alternative but to respond the way he did to Trudeau's "very unfortunate" statements.

Trump advisers also took up the attack in appearances on Sunday's news shows, leveling more withering and unprecedented criticism against Trudeau, branding him a back-stabber unworthy of Trump's time.

Trump's extraordinary outburst in recent days appeared aimed at striking a chord with voters who support his "America First" agenda.
