He said in a press conference that it was his mistake that he used such a language as he wanted to send an important message to the G7 members.

While making no direct criticism of Mr Trump, Mrs May told MPs: "This was a hard summit with, at times, some very candid discussions, but the conclusion I draw is that it is only through continued dialogue that we can find ways to work together to resolve the challenges we face".

Navarro's comments were part of the White House's continued criticism of Trudeau after the Prime Minister announced that Canada would impose retaliatory measures to answer Trump's tariffs and warned that Canada would not be "pushed around".

The G7 summit came after the Trump administration chose 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 USA major trading partners.

As the G7 summit ended in disarray last week, so did the long-standing alliance between the American and Canadian administration, following a debate over tariffs, counter-tariffs and some name-calling.

Trump has consistently said that countries that have a trade surplus with the U.S. - meaning they export more to the United States than they import - are "taking advantage" of the US. At a news conference after his meeting with Kim, the president said the Canadian leader must not have realized that Trump had televisions on Air Force One, allowing him to monitor Trudeau's news conference at the end of the G-7 summit. The response by Donald Trump was a tweet mentioning Trudeau as "dishonest & weak" and his remarks as "false statements".

Heyman waged a campaign on Twitter to persuade Navarro to apologize by saying he was contacting USA politicians about his remarks.
