Navarro apologizes for harsh comment about Canada PM

Canada's leader had announced his intention to impose retaliatory tariffs on USA imports because Trump imposed tariffs of 25 and 10 percent on aluminum and steel from Canada and other countries.

USA exports of goods and services to Canada supported an estimated 1.6 million jobs in 2015, according to the Department of Commerce. So too, were the current USA metals tariffs on Canada, Mexico, Europe and Japan.

"It is increasingly weird to see an administration heaping praise on a totalitarian dictator while using unprecedented language to condemn the elected head of government of the United States' closest ally", Kenney said.

He cited national security reasons - but is Canada a threat to our national security?

German Chancellor Angela Merkel warned the United States on Sunday that USA tariffs on imported steel and aluminum would not go unchallenged. Many Republicans are reluctant to pick a fight with Trump over trade right now as he seeks better deals with China and a slew of US allies.

Mexico enacted tariffs on about $3 billion worth of American pork, steel, cheese, and other goods. The rate for USA truck imports is 25 per cent.

Speaking in Washington, Freeland also offered some pointed words when asked about insults that senior White House staffers have hurled at Prime Minister Justin Trudeau: "The government of Canada does not believe that ad hominem attacks are the right way to go about foreign policy, to go about foreign relations, particularly when it comes to foreign relations with your close allies and neighbors".

BMW X-series SUVs assembled in the United States contain only 25 to 35 per cent USA content while the high-value engines and transmissions come from Germany and Austria, he noted.

"That's going to cost a lot of money for the people of Canada; he learned", Trump said wagging his finger.

"It's time for our major trading partners - from strategic competitors like China to key members of the Group of 7 - to realize that the era of American complacency in the global marketplace is over".

"Canadians are polite and reasonable but we will also not be pushed around", he said.

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

Canada's auto sector, employs 120,000 workers - 40,000 in assembly and 80,000 in auto parts and delivers $80 billion in economic activity.

"I think it's a very fair question", Trump said.

Besides, the industry is operating at capacity so there's no room in assembly plants to add models.

Jean-Claude Juncker, the EU Commission's President, called the US tariffs "protectionism". "Once the July 1 tariffs come into effect, it will affect our supply chain and it will likely kick up prices on steel". This can potentially benefit steel and aluminum industries; however, the tariffs will increase costs for USA companies that require raw materials - such as vehicle and airplane manufacturers - causing them to raise prices on the final products and raising costs for consumers.
