Justin Trudeau Threatens To Harm Americans, President Trump Hits Him Where It Hurts


The war of words between the United States and Canada has reached epic levels as both nations appear to show no signs of backing down. Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau has been talking tough, but when he chose to threaten President Donald Trump and all Americans, that was a big mistake.

Prime Minister Justin Trudeau was a cordial host when world leaders from the United States, Canada, Italy, Germany, France, Japan, and the United Kingdom met last week. But when President Donald Trump boarded an airplane to go to Singapore for his historic meeting with North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un, Trudeau became a tough-talking figure.

“Canadians … stood shoulder to shoulder with American soldiers in far-off lands in conflicts from the First World War onward,” Trudeau said at a press conference after President Trump was on his way to Singapore. “It’s kind of insulting.”

Trudeau was responding to the fact that President Trump said that the United States would impose tariffs on Canada for national security reasons. “Canadians, we’re polite, we’re reasonable, but we also will not be pushed around,” Trudeau said.

The Canadian prime minister threatened that his nation would retaliate if President Trump does impose tariffs. “The president will continue to say what he says. I have made it clear to the president that [imposing retaliatory tariffs] is not something we relish doing, but it’s something that we absolutely will do,” he said.

The tough words are a contrast from Trudeau who is the West’s ultimate beta male. And the fact that he waited for President Trump to leave before he became Canada’s answer to John Wayne is telling. But if he thought that he would intimidate President Trump, it did not take him long to find out how incorrect he was.

President Trump did not wait to land. He tweeted his response to Prime Minister Trudeau from aboard Air Force One on Sunday. “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!” the president said.

“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!” he said.

The president had a more positive response to the G7 summit hours before right after he left. “Just left the @G7 Summit in beautiful Canada. Great meetings and relationships with the six Country Leaders especially since they know I cannot allow them to apply large Tariffs and strong barriers to U.S.A. trade. They fully understand where I am coming from. After many decades, fair and reciprocal Trade will happen!” he wrote.

“The United States will not allow other countries to impose massive Tariffs and Trade Barriers on its farmers, workers and companies. While sending their product into our country tax free. We have put up with Trade Abuse for many decades — and that is long enough,” he said.

If the Canadian prime minister thinks that taking it to President Trump on the world stage is a smart idea, he should think again.

It remains to be seen if Prime Minister Justin Trudeau will continue the tough talk when President Donald Trump comes back to North America. President Trump could be coming back with a ton of political capital gained from meeting with, and potentially getting a deal with, Kim Jon Un. It is doubtful that he will cave to Prime Minister Trudeau after that.
