Escalating his attack on Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, U.S. President Donald Trump is now pledging to punish “the people of Canada” economically because of the post-G7 news conference in which Trudeau criticized Trump’s tariffs.
“That’s going to cost a lot of money for the people of Canada. He learned. You can’t do that. You can’t do that,” Trump said Tuesday in Singapore after meeting with North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un.
Trump repeated the vague threat in an interview with ABC.
“I actually like Justin, you know, I think he’s good, I like him, but he shouldn’t have done that. That was a mistake. That’s going to cost him a lot of money,” Trump said.
This is the first time Trump has threatened to take out his frustration with Trudeau on the Canadian people.
Jesus, this is so embarrassing!
This, by the way, is what Trudeau said that so infuriated Donald Trump.
Seemed perfectly reasonable to me. Because it WAS perfectly reasonable.
Trudeau is not on his own here, he is also backed up by the Canadian Parliment.
Today I introduced a Motion in the House of Commons calling for all parties in Parliament to stand together, united as one during this difficult moment with our US neighbours. Proud to see unanimous consent from all sides. #TrueNorthStrong ?? pic.twitter.com/upVRNklAiW

So now we are making nice with a North Korean dictator, and threatening our allies to the North?
I am not sure that it gets any more fucked up than that.
