"I feel that it's certainly detrimental to U.S". "I've been called worse things by better people", the elder Trudeau replied.

"My mission was to send a strong signal of strength".

"I think that Justin probably didn't know that Air Force One has about 20 televisions", Trump said during a press conference Monday following his historic meeting with Kim Jong-un.

"I'm not sure what activity he's asking me to undertake with either", quipped May.

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".

The apology could ease tensions after Canada's parliament condemned the personal attack on Trudeau and as Canada's Foreign Minister Chrystia Freeland gets ready to meet with members of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee on Wednesday in Washington.

"On his comments, I'm going to stay focused on defending jobs for Canadians and supporting Canadian industries", Mr Trudeau said before walking away from reporters.

Trump said that he watched Trudeau's press conference aboard Air Force One and was stunned. "He'll learn, he can't do that", Trump said. And I say, push him around?

The insults stemmed from a closing G7 press conference on Saturday in which Trudeau called U.S. steel and aluminum tariffs "insulting" and pledged to proceed with previously announced retaliatory tariffs.

He said it "didn't look friendly" but it was "very friendly". "And in fact the picture with Angela Merkel, who I get along with very well, where I'm sitting there like this. we're waiting for the document because I wanted to see the final document as changed".

An angry Trump refused to sign a joint statement issued at the end of the summit, and he and his top aides assailed Trudeau, accusing him of dishonesty and betrayal.

The G7 summit came after the Trump administration made a decision to impose tariffs on steel and aluminum imports from the European Union (EU), Canada and Mexico, which had drawn strong opposition from the domestic business community and US major trading partners.

Although Trump has repeatedly insisted that US workers have lost out under the North American Free Trade Agreement, the US Trade Representative's office confirmed the trade surplus falls more than $8 billion in Washington's favor.

Former Conservative cabinet minister James Moore, a member of the government's advisory group on NAFTA, hailed Trudeau's approach, refusing to react to "the noise, the bluster, the Twitter, the emotional outbursts". "Having said that we are aware that investigation on autos under Section 232 has been initiated". Contributions of 200 words or more will be considered for publication. "This is about our economy and millions and millions of jobs".

Trump has asked the Commerce Department to review whether vehicle imports threaten national security, which would add to levies already imposed on steel and aluminum.

If the USA imposes a 25 per cent tariff on those exports, suddenly they don't make much economic sense, said Kristin Dziczek, vice president of industry, labour and economics at the Center for Automotive Research in Ann Arbor, Mich.
