Fox News' Shepard Smith mocked President Donald Trump's feud with Canadian Prime Minister Justin Tudeau and the war of the words that followed and said the "U.S. might need a northern wall".

Navarro later apologized for the comments, telling a news conference in Washington on Tuesday: "My job is to send a signal of strength".

"In conveying that message I used language that was inappropriate and basically lost the power of that message", Navarro said.

-Canada trade dispute following the weekend's G7 summit.

Mr Kudlow said the President won't "let a Canadian prime minister push him around ..."

U.S. President Donald Trump and Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau hold a meeting on the sidelines of the G7 Summit in La Malbaie, Quebec, Canada, June 8, 2018.

"I actually like Justin", Trump said.

Navarro condemned Trudeau following the Canadian leader's news conference after his summit meeting with Trump and other world leaders from the Group of Seven. You said that that came from Air Force One. "I really did. Other than he had a news conference that he had cause he assumed I was in an airplane and I wasn't watching". One senior Trump adviser told The Atlantic's Jeffrey Goldberg that the Trump Doctrine could be summarized as "We're America, Bitch". Kudlow added: "Kim must not see American weakness". According to a Canada release, they make nearly 100 Billion Dollars in Trade with USA (guess they were bragging and got caught!).

Malki also denied that the coalition targeted any medical facility affiliated with Doctors Without Borders in Yemen on Monday. Seven civilians, including four children, were injured in the airstrike located less than 100 meters from the NRC facility.

He then asserted multiple times to the room full of reporters that he has a "good relationship" with Trudeau.

In a tweet posted Saturday evening, Trump said his decision to rescind support for the statement was based on "false statements" made by Trudeau during a press conference he gave, as well as "the fact that Canada is charging massive Tariffs" on us companies.

Navarro's apology could ease tensions after Canada's parliament condemned the personal attack on Trudeau and as Canadian Foreign Minister Chrystia Freeland prepares to meet with members of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee on Wednesday in Washington.

"Sorry, we can not let our friends, or enemies, take advantage of us on trade anymore". Other world leaders, including US politicians such as John McCain, were quick to dismiss the attacks from the Trump administration.

Corker said there wasn't any question that Trump has damaged relations with Canada, but he hoped cooler heads would prevail.

"That's going to cost a lot of money for the people of Canada; he learned", Mr Trump said wagging his finger.

Also on Monday, former Trump aide and a former Breitbart editor Sebastian Gorka criticized Trudeau, calling him "childish". And I'll tell you this: "to my friends in Canada, that was one of the worst political miscalculations of a Canadian leader in modern Canadian history".
