Senators seek to soothe relations with Canada riled up by Trump

Canada Responds After White House Says Trudeau 'Stabbed Us In The Back'

'Not Fair to the PEOPLE of America': Trump Attacks G7 Allies with Tweets from Singapore

"My mission was to send a strong signal of strength", he said, according to the Journal. "That is the language I've been hearing in hallways", Corker said during a floor speech in the Senate.

His apology comes amid a war of words between Trump and Trudeau after the G7 summit in Canada.

"That Canada could be considered a national security threat to the United States is inconceivable", said Prime Minister Justin Trudeau.

U.S. President Donald Trump answers questions about the summit with North Korea leader Kim Jong Un during a press conference at the Capella resort on Sentosa Island Tuesday, June 12, 2018 in Singapore. Trump lashed out at his Canadian host over milk tariffs, which account for 0.2 percent of U.S.

The attacks against Canada didn't end there, on Sunday, economic advisor Larry Kudlow accused Canada of stabbing the the back.

Later during the show, Smith further said Trump's latest attitude towards Trudeau isn't a new thing and he has "been kicking allies in the teeth his whole presidency".

Trump had informed the Western allies of his plans to impose new tariffs on steel and aluminum imports from Canada, the European Union and Mexico. But Trump isn't one to apologize and often feels he is in the right. "I have a good relationship with Justin Trudeau - I really did, other than he had a news conference that he had because he assumed I was in an airplane", the United States president said at a news conference. "We must put the American worker first!" he wrote in one his tweets.

"Kim must not see American weakness", Kudlow said. That number shifts to a $17.5 billion trade deficit when services are excluded.

"I had a good relationship with Justin Trudeau, I really did".

Will the Singapore summit be the beginning of a new era?
In the press conference , Trump says that he got Jong-un to watch it on a cassette, er... "Very, very quickly, absolutely". His elevated status is a direct benefit of Trump's decision to meet with him on equal diplomatic footing.

The Consul-General of Canada Phyllis Yaffee was in Harrisburg this week as part of an effort to work on trade between Canada and Pennsylvania.

And Trump and Trudeau are supposed to be friends.

Peter Navarro is President Donald Trump's National Trade Council adviser.

She told a crowd of diplomats, academics and politicians blocks from the White House that she realizes that some Americans no longer think that world order is of any benefit to them, even though they helped create it and wrote "the biggest cheques" to support it.

The squabble escalated over the weekend at the G7 meeting of economic powers in Quebec when Trudeau said in a news conference that Canada would not be "pushed around" by the U.S. and called the tariffs "insulting".

"I have a good relationship with Justin Trudeau", Trump told the crowd.

"They can not believe that they've gotten away with this for so many decades", Trump said.

Trump, meanwhile, renewed his criticisms of Canada's protection of its dairy sector, saying: "It's very unfair to our farmers, and it's very unfair to the people of our country".
