President Donald Trump said Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau "learned" from the mistake of criticizing him and it's going to cost Canada "a lot of money".

"Let me correct a mistake I made", Mr Navarro said at a Wall Street Journal conference.

Next morning on Fox News, my job, my mission, was to send a very strong signal of strength, and this was particularly important on the eve of a far more important summit in Korea.

The House of Commons passed a unanimous motion Monday backing Trudeau's stand against the US and it castigated Trump for his attacks on the prime minister and Canada.

The House of Commons unanimously passed a motion Monday rejecting "disparaging ad hominem statements by USA officials", taking aim at Mr. Trump and his advisers for tearing into Mr. Trudeau beginning moments after the president departed the G-7 summit on Saturday.

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

Trump's chief trade adviser, Peter Navarro, acknowledged an error in asserting "there's a special place in hell" for Trudeau, whom he accused Sunday of bad faith diplomacy and stabbing Trump in the back after he departed early from the G7 summit in Quebec.

Trump says Trudeau "probably didn't know that Air Force 1 has about 20 televisions".

Northern Ireland pro-choice campaign gathers momentum
Britain's Supreme Court on Thursday criticized Northern Ireland's strict anti-abortion laws but dismissed a legal challenge. Four of the seven justices said the law violated European conventions by not allowing abortion in cases of rape and incest.

Kanye West, Kid Cudi Hold Listening Party For ‘Kids See Ghosts’
By contrast, the delay for the listening party of " Kids See Ghosts " extended to its release. That would lead us to believe that "Reborn" is actually "Cudi Montage".

Anthony Bourdain and Kate Spade's deaths are part of a growing problem in the US
Higher rates of substance abuse and drug addiction are also associated with higher suicide rates, Duarte said. That compares to 69 percent and 41 percent, respectively, among those with known mental health conditions .

"The problem was that in conveying that message I used language that was inappropriate", he said.

"The president, coming late, stands before the cameras and says, "Why don't we add Russian Federation to the group". The ire directed at the prime minister by Trump and his advisors had confused some trade observers since the comments seemed to be just a reiteration of what the prime minister had said previously and not a personal insult.

The horror! Who could have predicted that when Trump imposed steel and aluminum tariffs against Canada - citing national security concerns - the Canadians wouldn't be happy and might strike back? He's railed many times in recent days against Canadian import duties of 270 percent on dairy. "Because you have some cases where countries are subsidizing industries and that's not fair", Trump said.

As he flew from Canada to Singapore Saturday night, Trump took to Twitter to label Trudeau "dishonest" and "weak".

Now, Trump is threatening to impose tariffs on the auto sector, which further indicates that he has no idea how global trade works.

We start with a trade fight between neighbours that is showing no signs of weakening.

On Monday, the House of Commons unanimously approved a motion showing "solidarity" with the Trudeau government's decision to impose retaliatory tariffs against the U.S. "We look forward to looking at the details of the agreement".
