Canadians are furious today at some of the tweets made by POTUS, while winging his way to Singapore for a showdown with Kim Jong-Un of NORTH KOREA. And well they should be. Arriving late at the G-7 gathering in La Baie, QUEBEC, and leaving early – the Trumpster more-or-less trashed the Summit and Canada’s Prime Minister. He essentially called Prime Minister Justin Trudeau a liar who made “false statements” about Canada-US trade.
DONALD TRUMP – “Based on Justin’s false statements at his news conference, and the fact that Canada is charging massive tariffs to our US farmers, workers and companies, I have instructed our US Reps not to endorse the (G-7) Communique, as we look at tariffs on automobiles flooding the US market.” – Sunday Star, June 10/2018
The office of French president, Emmanuel Macron, issued a statement saying that cooperation on the international stage “cannot be dictated by fits of anger and throwaway remarks . . .
“We spent two days working out a [joint] statement and commitments. We are sticking to them and whoever reneges on them is showing incoherence and inconsistency.”
