On Fox News Sunday, White House Director of Trade Policy Peter Navarro also defended the president with adversarial language.
Larry Kudlow, the White House economic adviser, also characterized Trudeau's remarks as a "betrayal". When you use it with your best friend, your next door neighbor, your greatest ally, and I think one of your singular best trading partners, it's completely uncalled for, unprofessional, and I call for, today, an apology.
Kudlow said, "That's correct".

German Chancellor Angela Merkel described Mr Trump's change of heart on the joint communique as "sobering and a little depressing".
Updating the House of Commons on the G7 summit on her return from Canada, Mrs May said: "This was a hard summit with, at times, some very candid discussions. That's what weak, dishonest Justin Trudeau did, and that comes right from Air Force One", said Navarro. He told CNN's Jake Tapper that "of course" Trump's tweets about Trudeau actually had to do with North Korea "in large part".
