He made the apology - something that former US ambassador to Canada Bruce Heyman, among others, was demanding that he do - during a Wall Street Journal event today in Washington.

In a post-signing news conference and in an interview with ABC News, the president recounted how miffed he was to hear Trudeau's G7 wrap-up news conference, where the prime minister reiterated Canada's intention to impose counter-tariffs on USA goods in retaliation for Trump's imposition of crippling tariffs on Canadian steel and aluminum.

"I actually like Justin, you know, I think he's good, I like him, but he shouldn't have done that", Trump said. "That's what weak, dishonest Justin Trudeau did, and that comes right from Air Force One".

Trump then tweeted Saturday evening, "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.' Very dishonest & weak".

Trump went on to threaten further tariffs against Canada and accused Trudeau of making false statements.

Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) said Sunday on ABC's "This Week", "I'm not so sure John's right about where America is on trade". Trump, who left the G7 meeting before it ended, that tariffs would harm industries and workers on both sides of the U.S.

His apology came days after Trump and Trudeau verbally sparred over the G7 summit in Canada.
