On Twitter, Trump Says Trudeau “Acted So Meek And Mild During Our G7 Meetings”

Trump also called Trudeau “Very dishonest & weak.”

Shortly after departing the G7 Summit, US President Donald Trump slammed Prime Minister Justin Trudeau on Twitter.

Trump insinuated that Trudeau is acting tough publicly, but is very different behind the scenes. He also said Trudeau was making “false statements,” and Trump says he is now looking at tariffs on cars entering the US.

Here’s what Trump said:

“Based on Justin’s false statements at his news conference, and the fact that Canada is charging massive Tariffs to our U.S. farmers, workers and companies, I have instructed our U.S. Reps not to endorse the Communique as we look at Tariffs on automobiles flooding the U.S. Market!”

“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. Our Tariffs are in response to his of 270% on dairy!”

While Trump often uses Twitter to project a tough image for the domestic US audience, it would seem that the G7 has not only failed to reduce tensions between Canada and the US, those tensions have now increased.

And while it’s impossible to know what Trudeau was really like behind the scenes with Trump, it would be concerning to many Canadians if there was a gap between Trudeau’s public image and his actions when actually dealing with world leaders.

Of course, a bigger problem than Tweets is the fact that the Trudeau government is refusing to do things that could help our nation be stronger when it comes to economic competition with the United States. If the Trudeau government repealed the carbon tax, cut regulations, and brought in big tax cuts for individuals and families, our domestic market would be stronger, our exporters would get a boost, and we would have a chance to draw investment north from the US.

Instead, the government is doubling down on the same approach that has caused an exodus of investment and is slowing down our economy. As a result, our negotiating position with the US is far weaker than it should be.

President Trump said it right, most Canadians know this and much worse about our foreign fake ruler.

Trudeau and his Liberals will yake the country to the bottom. As the Chameleons they are, they will present an ‘open for business’ agenda to Canadians and the world in the next election campaign. But this time I pray we see his lips movin’ and recognize he’s lyin’.

Truly, now, is there anything other than lying that he can do? I have yet to see or hear any myself, but in fairness, one must ask — eh?

Justin can do none of those things: – votes who oppose the carbon tax by & large won’t vote for him anyway, and he’ll lose the “green” vote if he cancels it; – Liberals believe that more government & more regulation leads to better outcomes; – Liberals believe that tax cuts only favour the wealthy, and since the great numbers of voters who already pay little or no tax already vote “progressive,” cutting taxes won’t attract more votes; and – given that Bernier’s defeat as Conservative leader shows the strength of the PQ dairy industry, ending supply management (dairy, at… Read more »

Trudeau should keep his mouth shut and level the playing field. He will lose.

Now I am finding out that the debt is per capita. So in Ontario, they count the welfare, the newborns, the disabled, the immigrants, the sick, the blinds, all people who will dont contribute to pay the debt. In reality, the debt is double. Let’s applaud the Liberals for putting us in the hole further down with their crazy spending.

Much as I have been a Trump supporter since he announced his run for the Republican Party, I remain unconvinced that Wisconsonian dairy farmers are in some sort of world of hurt due to Canada’s supply-management system on dairy products.

Trudope is killing Canada. All he wants to do is push people around but he is such a coward that he can only do it behind their backs. If we do not get rid of him and fast we will become the 51 st state. But that would be a good thing

So why in the world did you Canadians vote in that fool as your prime minister?

Tommy Hawk

ONLY $400million? Whew, I thought it would be more — oh, no, wait, he has more planned to send to Saudi Arabia to help them export their oil to us — now, doesn’t that make sense?

My admiration for Trump soared after reading his critique of Mr La Trudette’s recent performance. Trump, an astute judge of character actors, isn’t timid about calling a bad act & and a bad drama queen out for another poor performance. Did anyone else notice the display of ankle wear and groan a bit thinking that the ‘La Socks’ act is getting old and tiring. If it continues we’ll soon see his knees. The Canadian mass media is now getting itself pumped up for the early summer season run and are presenting ‘T vs T’ as an upcoming wrestler’s match. The… Read more »

Having oil and gas pipelines and facilities on both coasts plus Churchill would have given Canada more bargaining position strength. The Eastern line would have also enabled Canada to support Europe with oil and gas. Europe is almost held hostage by Russia as their major supplier. As it is, we are stuck with only one major customer and Trump knows it. America is almost self sufficient regarding petroleum and treats Canada as a source of cheap crude oil. Trudeau is incapable of thinking of the consequences of his snap decisions. Wearing a mask when voting, no picture required on firearms… Read more »

No word yet if Trudeau was wearing his pro ISIS socks?
