While Trump expressed surprise at Trudeau's remarks, his comments were largely in line with what Canadian officials had said since Trump's announcement of tariffs.
Trudeau had been saying the same thing for several weeks, but Trump apparently found it reprehensible to repeat the message on the eve of his historic summit with North Korean dictator Kim Jong-un.
Following the G7 summit in Quebec, Canada, over the weekend, Trump and Trudeau engaged in a war of words over Trump's decision to impose sizeable tariffs on Canadian steel and aluminum imports.
The tariffs Canada imposes on American goods will have an impact on the full supply chain that goes into bringing a product to consumers - from those who source the raw materials, to those who process them, to distributors and wholesalers.
In a sign of how limited their options are, Canadian officials said they planned to press harder with their USA lobbying campaign, focused on potentially sympathetic lawmakers outside the White House, while relying on support from allied nations and hoping Trump does not carry out all his threats. "You can't do that".
Former Conservative cabinet minister James Moore, a member of the government's advisory group on NAFTA, hailed Trudeau's approach, refusing to react to "the noise, the bluster, the Twitter, the emotional outbursts".
His anger appears to have been sparked by a news conference Mr Trudeau gave after the summit, in which he described as "insulting" the way the United States cited national security as a reason for the tariffs. And I say, 'Push him around?
Trump again presented the U.S. as the victim of unfair trade deals during the interview with ABC on Tuesday.

And because of this, games that focus on history, geography, or other elements of the real world can now almost be educational. It may sound somewhat hard to believe, but there have already been artistic exhibitions for people’s Tilt Brush designs.
"It's very unfair to our farmers, and it's very unfair to the people of our country", Trump said Tuesday in Singapore.
President Donald Trump's mistaken assertion that Canada burned down the White House in 1814 is minor compared with his confusion over the trade relationship with our northern neighbor. One of its earlytweets read: numerous jokes were directed at the XX-year-old Canadian President, who bore the brunt of a twitter attack from President Trump and his White House advisers.
There's a special place in hell for any foreign leader that engages in bad-faith diplomacy with President Donald J. Trump and then tries to stab him in the back on the way out the door. "Let me correct a mistake I made", Navarro told the audience at the Wall Street Journal's annual CFO Network conference.
"I've never seen language like this, the least of all from subordinates of the president directed at the prime minister of their greatest friend and ally".
The back-and-forth between Trump and Trudeau highlights the growing tensions between the USA and some the country's closest allies.
German Chancellor Angela Merkel described his change of heart as "sobering and a little depressing".
He said there's still hope that stalled negotiations for a modernized North American Free Trade Agreement can be revived, provided Canada stays calm and measured in response to Trump's rants.
