Trudeau: We support Trump's North Korea efforts, won't engage on comments

On the eve of Mr. Trump's meeting with Mr. Kim, one of the president's top trade advisers, Peter Navarro, said there was "a special place in hell" for leaders like Mr. Trudeau, accusing him of engaging in "bad-faith diplomacy" with Mr. Trump. "The problem was that in conveying that message, I used language that was inappropriate and basically lost the power of that message", Mr. Navarro told the Wall Street Journal's CFO Network meeting, according to a recap of the session from the WSJ. "And I think what people need to do at this moment is take a step back", Hassett said. "That's what weak, dishonest Justin Trudeau did, and that comes right from Air Force One".

Asked if he was apologizing for the comments, Navarro said, "yeah, absolutely".

Trump responded furiously, accusing Trudeau "weak" and "dishonest" in a Twitter post and withdrawing USA support for the joint G-7 statement his administration had agreed to hours earlier. He complained that he had been blindsided by Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau's criticism of his tariff threats at a summit-ending news conference.

A Trump adviser had suggested Sunday that Trump saw Trudeau as trying to weaken his hand before the meeting with Kim.

Navarro also said Trudeau is "weak and dishonest".

That is a very long time to wait, and will put nearly 15 years between the launch of Skyrim and The Elder Scrolls 6 . As well as big new games, Bethesda also used the event to show off new content for some of its existing games.

"We are aware that an investigation on autos under section 232 has been initiated", Freeland said referring to the same process that eventually led to the Trump administration imposing tariffs on steel and aluminum imports from Canada, Mexico and the European Union, citing "national security" grounds.

USA economic adviser Larry Kudlow said Trudeau "kind of stabbed us in the back" with his comments.

The admission was a rare act of contrition from the Trump White House, where public apologies are few.

Mr Trump said: "If they retaliate they are making a mistake".

But Mr Trump insisted it would be an "asset" to have Vladimir Putin back at the summit table.

Tied for lead, Johnson primed to regain top ranking
Johnson and Putnam were tied for the lead at 15 under after the third round and were five strokes clear of the rest of the field. Dustin Johnson reclaimed the top spot in the world ranking Sunday with a six-shot victory at the FedEx St.

President Emmanuel Macron reacted with a statement slamming Mr Trump's behaviour at the summit.

"That co-operation to reduce costs, find efficiencies and open up trading within our own region will benefit not just small and medium enterprises, but the region overall", Bell said.

That was the Trump Tweet after he left the G7 conference in Quebec early to fly to Singapore to meet with North Korea's Kim Jong Un.

"It is something that we have discussed and Canada is certainly prepared for any eventuality", Freeland said.

"Sometimes when we think about tariffs, when we think about a trade war, we lose sight of the real impact, and that's on workers", Singh told a news conference on Parliament Hill.

Man holds two people hostage in Paris
One of the hostages is reportedly a pregnant woman, and another is "severely injured", according to a witness. Police swept vehicles in the area with a device but found nothing, he said.

The insults stemmed from a closing G7 press conference on Saturday in which Trudeau called USA steel and aluminum tariffs "insulting" and pledged to proceed with previously announced retaliatory tariffs. Trudeau had used similar language in the past, and Canada threatened retaliatory tariffs before the G-7 got underway in response to the USA duties on metal.
