Trudeau on Trump: we support North Korea efforts, won't engage on comments
Donald Trump's trade adviser is apologizing for saying there's a ``special place in hell'' for Prime Minister Justin Trudeau because of his ``bad-faith diplomacy'' during the G7 summit in Quebec.
Peter Navarro says his job was to send a ``signal of strength'' after Trudeau's post-G7 news conference sent the U.S. president into a fit of pique that threw the summit into disarray.
However, Navarro says he used inappropriate language in trying to convey that message.
He made the apology, something that former U.S. ambassador to Canada Bruce Heyman, among others, was demanding that he do, during a Wall Street Journal event today in Washington.
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.''
Earlier today, Trudeau cheered Trump's bid to broker a deal to rid the Korean Peninsula of nuclear weapons, but he stayed mum on the U.S. administration's persistent trash talk.
