Canada looks to ride out Trump trade storm
Earlier on Sunday, the last day of the G7 summit, Navarro had said, "There's a special place in hell for any foreign leader that engages in bad faith diplomacy with President Donald J. Trump and then tries to stab him in the back on the way out the door".
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.
"Let me correct a mistake I made", Navarro said at a Wall Street Journal conference Tuesday, according to video provided by the newspaper's CFO Network. "I used language that was inappropriate", he said.
"I think the first-hand interaction is likely to be a stronger factor than anything the president says", he said. He's railed many times in recent days against Canadian import duties of 270 percent on dairy.
Then, he went on about how massive trade surpluses were not fair to the American people and how the United States pays almost the full cost of North Atlantic Treaty Organisation which protects "many of these same countries that rip us off on Trade" and remarked, "Change is coming".
Canadian officials have stressed the two countries' extensive trading relationship and pointed out that Canada is the top export destination for 35 USA states and that 9 million jobs in the United States depend on trade with its northern neighbor. The Trudeau government has announced it will impose dollar-for-dollar, retaliatory tariffs on metals and a range of other USA products by July 1.
NDP Leader Jagmeet Singh also urged the federal government to get serious about drafting a rescue plan for steel and aluminum workers, who are going to feel the brunt of the initial impact of the dispute - and soon.
"I think as all of you know I believe it is always unwise to venture hypothetical responses to hypothetical actions", Freeland told reporters on Parliament Hill Tuesday.
