U.S. President Donald Trump speaks during a news conference after his meeting with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un at the Capella Hotel on Sentosa island in Singapore June 12, 2018. He said Mr Trudeau was "very dishonest and weak" and "acts hurt when called out".

At his closing press conference, Trudeau called USA steel and aluminum tariffs "insulting" and pledged to proceed with previously announced retaliatory tariffs.

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.

Lawmakers gave unanimous consent for a motion backing Canadian steel and aluminum, hit by USA tariffs, as well as the supply management system that supports key agriculture sectors, and gave a standing ovation for the government's response to the Trump administration's verbal attacks on Trudeau.
