Peter Navarro, a White House trade adviser, has apologised after saying "there's a special place in hell" for Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, who is in a trade dispute with President Donald Trump.

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

"I find it hard to try to apologize for words that come from the mouths of people in our government, so I don't even try", she said. After leaving the summit early, Trump tweeted he was pulling USA support from a joint statement and he accused Trudeau, the summit's host, of being weak and dishonest during a news conference.

U.S. President Donald Trump's sharp comments against Canada over trade are just a blip in an otherwise unbreakable, long-standing friendship, say some Americans living in the northeastern part of the country near the Canadian border.

"And that's what bad faith Justin Trudeau did with that stunt press conference", Navarro said.

"He's giving a news conference about how he will not be pushed around by the United States".

Navarro's willingness to walk back his outburst marked a departure from the Trump administration's never-say-you're-sorry approach to political crises.

The motion calls on the House to recognize the importance of Canada's "long-standing, mutually beneficial trading relationship" with the US, "strongly oppose" the "illegitimate tariffs" imposed on steel and aluminum, stand "in solidarity" with the Trudeau government's decision to impose retaliatory tariffs and remain united in support of the supply management system of regulating Canada's dairy and poultry industry.

Canadian politicians of all stripes have rallied around Trudeau, unanimously passing a motion Monday supporting the prime minister and denouncing Trump's personal attacks on him.

Trump's statements could be merely "chest thumping", he said, but after moving to impose tariffs on steel and aluminum on the basis of national security, the threat of new taxes must be taken seriously. And I say, push him around?

"He learned", Trump said. "I used language that was inappropriate", he said.

"PM Justin Trudeau of Canada acted so meek and mild during our @G7 meetings only to give a news conference after I left saying that, "US Tariffs were kind of insulting" and he 'will not be pushed around, ' " Trump tweeted on Saturday. He learned. You can't do that.

Trump also continued to denounce Canada's system of supply management to protect the domestic dairy, egg and poultry industry, which levels tariffs of up to 300 per cent on American imports of those products.

Both aides accused Trudeau of betraying Trump, a Republican, at a news conference held after the US president had departed Canada. The Trudeau government has announced it will impose dollar-for-dollar, retaliatory tariffs on metals and a range of other USA products, starting July 1.
