"We were very close to making a deal with Canada on NAFTA ... then we leave and he pulls this sophomoric political stunt for domestic consumption", Kudlow said of Trudeau.
The economic summit, attended by Trump, Trudeau and other leaders of the Group of Seven advanced nations, concluded Saturday with Trump leaving early en route to Singapore. "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". They didn't want me to see it, but we found it.
As for Trump's own response, he predicted that Trudeau's remarks are going to cost Canada "a lot of money".
On Tuesday, Mr Trump kept up the attack on Mr Trudeau. "You can't do that".
Trudeau sparked tensions with Trump and USA officials when he asserted that he wouldn't let the US bully Canada on trade. The move has been roundly criticized by Canada and the European Union, leading to heightened tensions at last week's G-7 summit.
Trump is heading to Singapore, where he is scheduled to meet on Tuesday with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un.
Trump's extraordinary outburst in recent days appeared aimed at striking a chord with voters who support his "America First" agenda.
"I know it didn't look friendly", Trump said. "Look, countries can not continue to take advantage of us on trade".
"Very dishonest and weak" he claimed, adding in a separate tweet: "I have instructed our U.S. reps not to endorse the communique".
"On his comments, as I said, I'm going to stay focused on defending jobs for Canadians and supporting Canadian interests".
"Let me correct a mistake I made", Mr Navarro said at a Wall Street Journal conference.
Note that Navarro expressed regret only for the language, not the message, which is that Trudeau had better show President Trump more deference in the future.
Committee Chairman Bob Corker, R-Tenn., said Tuesday that he's "glad" that Navarro admitted that he misspoke. "The comment was a bit over the top", Corker said. Navarro admitted that his comments were a "mistake". All three trading partners have threatened to retaliate with their own levies against US imports.
Mr Trump's strained relationship with the rest of the G7 was in evidence on Saturday when he arrived late for the opening session, with Mr Trudeau addressing a gathering that included an empty chair where the president was meant to be.
White House legislative affairs director Marc Short also sought to distance himself from Navarro's comments and told CNN's John Berman in an interview Monday that "those are words that I would not have chosen".
Within minutes of the official release of the document, Trump attacked Trudeau online over what he described as the prime minister's "false statements" during the closing news conference - and the president announced the U.S. would no longer endorse the communique.
The communique said the leaders of the United States, Canada, Britain, France, Italy, Germany and Japan agreed on the need for "free, fair, and mutually beneficial trade" and the importance of fighting protectionism.
