"I own that, that was my mistake, those were my words".

"The next morning, on Fox News, my job - my mission - was to send a very strong signal of strength". One of its early tweets read: numerous jokes were directed at the XX-year-old Canadian President, who bore the brunt of a twitter attack from President Trump and his White House advisers.

In Canada Tuesday, commenting on the Trump-Kim summit, where the two leaders appeared very cordial and even smiling together, Trudeau said he supported Trump's efforts to reach a nuclear deal.

Former prime minister Brian Mulroney predicts Donald Trump's unprecedented diatribe against Justin Trudeau is a passing storm.

"Trudeau did not make President Trump look weak", Hayden said on CNN Newday Monday.

A day before, White House economic adviser Larry Kudlow also lashed out at Trudeau.

Members of Parliament gave unanimous consent for a motion backing Canadian steel and aluminium, hit by United States tariffs, as well as the supply management system that supports key agriculture sectors, and gave a standing ovation for the government response to the Trump administration's verbal attacks on Trudeau.

At the event, Mr Trudeau said Canada would take retaliatory steps in response to Mr Trump's steel and aluminium tariffs imposed on Canada and other allies.

While on this side of the border there was a rare sign of unity in the House of Commons Monday as Members of Parliament passed an NDP motion denouncing both the trade tariffs and Trump's personal attacks.

"Justin probably didn't know that Air Force has about 20 televisions", Trump said. Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau had responded to Trump's recent threats and installing of tariffs in a press conference at the end of the summit. But he also said that critical comments from Justin Trudeau would cost Canada "a lot of money".

"It is our position and, indeed, the position of the Prime Minister, that supply management must remain in place if NAFTA negotiations are going to come to a successful conclusion", MacLauchlan said. So far in 2018, Canada is also the top export destination for U.S. goods, with over $98 billion worth of goods going over the border. And I'll tell you this: "to my friends in Canada, that was one of the worst political miscalculations of a Canadian leader in modern Canadian history".

"I think the impact will be small unless the trade war escalates into things like autos".
