Trump's attacks against Trudeau unanimously condemned by Canadian lawmakers

"In conveying that message I used language that was inappropriate".

United States President Donald Trump addressed media post the historic Trump-Kim summit on Tuesday.

Trump, who arrived rather late to the summit and left early was contentious and fractious right from the beginning, when he called on the leaders of France, Germany, UK, Japan and Canada to invite back Russian Federation to the fold of the G-7.

The United States has alienated Canada and other allies by imposing tariffs on steel and aluminum imports, arguing that they pose a threat to USA national security.

I asked him, I said, 'I have something to say from North Korea and he just brushed me off. 'I think people have an understanding that we can forgive people.

Trump has consistently said that countries that have a trade surplus with the USA - meaning they export more to the United States than they import - are "taking advantage" of the US. "Kim must not see American weakness".

Trump announced on Saturday that he would not sign the standard Group of Seven (G-7) communique at the end of the summit - after Trudeau announced that all of the group's members had come to an agreement.

Following Trump's departure from the G7 summit, Trudeau said Saturday at a press conference that USA steel and aluminum tariffs against Canada on national security grounds were "kind of insulting" and that Canada "will not be pushed around".

Mr Trump said he chose to back out of the G-7 communique after watching Mr Trudeau's closing summit news conference, at which he warned that Canada would not be pushed around on tariffs - a point the Canadian prime minister had made several times before. "You can't do that".

Asked if he was apologising for the comments, Navarro said: "Yeah, absolutely".
