White House legislative director Marc Short said on Monday that he would not have used [White House trade adviser] Peter Navarro’s words that there was a “special place in hell” for Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau.

“I think that those are words that I would not have chosen,” Short told CNN’s John Berman.

The article goes on to state the following:

“I think that the reality is that the president felt that they had had a productive meeting. You heard the president even make announcements there that our goal was to have no tariffs and no barriers, but I think that there was offense taken that once airborne on your way to an incredibly important international summit that the prime minister of Canada chose to take to the podium to condemn the actions of the United States,” he continued.

“So that’s clearly what was the frustration, but no I think that the judgment day that separates us from heaven or hell is not dependent upon whether you agree with the president or not, so I do not think that it is the official position,” he said.
