Speaking at a conference in Washington on Tuesday, Navarro said his "job" in appearing on Fox News Sunday in the chaotic aftermath of the G7 summit in Quebec had been "to send a signal of strength".

"I've never seen language like this, least of all from subordinates of the president directed at the prime minister of their greatest friend and ally", Mulroney said.

Earlier, the White House escalated the unprecedented criticism against Trudeau, branding him a back-stabber unworthy of Trump's time.

His apology comes amid a war of words between Trump and Trudeau after the G7 summit in Canada.

"Canadians are polite and reasonable, but we will not be pushed around", Trudeau recently said.

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.

At the summit's conclusion on Saturday, Trudeau reiterated that Ottawa was prepared to retaliate against the new tariffs if the United States did not back down, and said Canadians "would not be pushed around".

Larry Kudlow, Trump's chief economic adviser, told CNN that Trudeau's press conference addressing Trump's actions was "a betrayal".

US President Donald Trump has renewed his attacks on America's closest allies following the divisive G7 summit in Canada at the weekend. At the event, Trudeau said Canada would take retaliatory steps in response to Trump's steel and aluminium tariffs imposed on Canada and other allies.

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

"He'll learn that's going to cost a lot of money for the people of Canada".

Immediately after his remarks Saturday, Trump blasted Trudeau's statement as "dishonest & weak" on Twitter and announced the U.S. would not be signing the joint G7 communique - a symbolic but unprecedented move.

"Justin probably didn't know that Air Force has about 20 televisions", Trump said.

Trudeau's foreign minister responded by condemning "ad hominem attacks", and Germany and France criticised Trump's comments.

"We are urging all sides to resolve their differences on trade amicably", she told reporters in Canberra on Tuesday.

"I don't care how mad, how angry you are, you don't treat the head of state of another country like that unless you are getting ready for a military engagement of some kind", he said.
