Navarro had told Fox News on Sunday that there was a "special place in hell" for the Canadian prime minister that "engages in bad-faith diplomacy" with U.S. President Donald Trump.

"I'm not sure what activity he's asking me to undertake with either", May said amid laughter.

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

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, who had criticised Trudeau after the G7 meeting in Canada on the weekend, said the United States had a big trade deficit with Canada, and "a little balance" was needed.

The president's chief economic advisor told Jake Tapper on Sunday that Trudeau "stabbed us in the back" with his post-G7 remarks, calling it a "sophomoric play".

"We were very close to making a deal with Canada on NAFTA ... then we leave and he pulls this sophomoric political stunt for domestic consumption", Kudlow said of Trudeau.

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. "Other than he had a news conference that he had because he assumed I was in an airplane and I wasn't watching".

"Let me correct a mistake I made", Navarro said at a Wall Street Journal conference Tuesday, according to video provided by the newspaper's CFO Network. The president tweeted from Air Force One that Trudeau was "dishonest", and weak. Trudeau's comments centered around Trump's lack of understanding when it comes to worldwide trade.
