President Donald Trump took more swipes at Canada and its prime minister over trade issues as he settled in for a summit with North Korea in Singapore, contending that "Fair Trade is now to be called Fool Trade if it is not Reciprocal".

U.S. President Donald Trump said Tuesday he would inflict economic punishment on "the people of Canada" because Prime Minister Justin Trudeau spoke publicly against Trump's tariffs.

"I find it hard to try to apologize for words that come from the mouths of people in our government, so I don't even try", she said.

Navarro seemed to apologize for the remarks on Tuesday. And the problem is that in conveying that message I used language that was inappropriate and basically lost the power of that message.

Trump initially called Trudeau's comments a "dishonest" act.

Trump said on Twitter he found Trudeau's complaints about the new tariffs to be dishonest, and he explained the tariffs were in response to Canadian tariffs on dairy. -Canada border. Trudeau told reporters that imposing retaliatory measures "is not something I relish doing" but that he wouldn't hesitate to do so because "I will always protect Canadian workers and Canadian interests".

After leaving the meeting early, Trump tweeted that he was pulling U.S. support from a joint statement and he accused Trudeau of being weak and dishonest during a news conference.

"Other than he had a news conference that he had because he assumed I was in an airplane and I wasn't watching", Trump said.

Trump says Trudeau "probably didn't know that Air Force One has about 20 televisions". "There is a special place in heaven for Justin Trudeau", European Council President Donald Tusk said.

Trudeau also said he would stand up for Canadians. "It was very friendly", Mr Trump said.

Canada is the U.S.'s largest trading partner, and the USA economy would struggle to make up for Canada's absence, Heyman noted.

Whatever happens in Singapore over the next day or two, it's uniquely possible - and maybe even likely - that what Trump did in Quebec on Friday and Saturday will matter more in the country's long-term geopolitical future, and not in a good way.

"I thought he should have kept his big mouth shut, because I don't think that helps us in foreign policy".

"If Kim Jong Un reverses his commitments. then what the president said about Justin Trudeau will be repeated 10-fold about Kim Jong Un", Cotton told the Hugh Hewitt syndicated radio talk show.
