President Trump Calls Out Canadian Hypocrisy On Tariffs

By 1600 Staff

Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau waited until President Trump left a meeting the the G7 nations to pick a fight on trade tariffs. The prime minister made headlines when he said of his country: “Canadians, we’re polite, we’re reasonable, but we also will not be pushed around” referencing the American effort to lower Canadian tariffs.

Of course, the president responded.

The president’s top economic advisor Larry Kudlow said that the remarks represented a betrayal by Canada, and said that the president would not weakly accept the Canadian posturing on trade ahead of the meeting with North Korea.

Peter Navarro, White House Trade Advisor, told Fox’s Chris Wallace on Sunday:

“Chris, 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. And that’s what bad faith Justin Trudeau did with that stunt press conference. That’s what week, dishonest Justin Trudeau did. And that comes right from Air Force One. And I’ll tell you this, to my friends in Canada, that was one of the worst political miscalculations of a Canadian leader in modern Canadian history.”

President Trump will move forward with the reciprocal tariffs, until Canada moves off its own tariffs on American goods.
