Browbeaten? On Twitter, Justin Trudeau's 'Fake Eyebrows' Trumps US Tirade

Browbeaten? On Twitter, Justin Trudeau's 'Fake Eyebrows' Trumps US Tirade

Earlier in the evening, Trump tweeted that Canadian prime minster Justin Trudeau was "meek" and "mild" and that his statements were "false".

"Here's the thing", Kudlow said, "he really kind of stabbed us in the back".

The answer likely reflects the state of trade negotiations between the United States and Canada, abetted by a deeply held conviction on the part of Trump and his closest advisors that "other countries expect America will always be their bank". But Trump's shots at Canadian prime minister Justin Trudeau and his general churlishness served no useful end.

When asked about Trump's remarks in Parliament on Tuesday, Trudeau said he supports Trump's efforts on North Korea and looks forward to the details of that agreement.

The US President is also making threats against Canada's dairy producers and automakers. Trump said in a second tweet.

"Very dishonest & weak", he said of Trudeau.

After President Trump left, from Air Force One, he rage-tweeted an attack on Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, and announced the US was revoking its agreement to accept the joint statement of the G-7 members.

Prime Minister Justin Trudeau says he fully supports Donald Trump's efforts to get North Korea to relinquish its nuclear arsenal, but he won't respond to the USA president's latest barbs directed at Canada. This is nothing all that different from what Trudeau had said before.

"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". The apparent lack of regard for the broader mission of the G-7 was already on display before the public blow-up between Trump and Trudeau.

Kudlow, 70, at one point referred to Canada's leader as "Pierre Trudeau", confusing the 46-year-old prime minister with his late father, who served in the same capacity for more than 15 years between 1968 and 1984 and died in 2000.

White House trade adviser Peter Navarro blasted Trudeau in an interview Sunday.

Tensions have been building between the two countries for months, as President Trump has targeted Canada as one of the many countries he sees as giving American the short end of the stick in trade deals. "Not unusual to argue with allies".

Burns, now a professor at Harvard University's Kennedy School, termed Navarro's comments "over the top embarrassing".

"That's going to cost a lot of money for the people of Canada", Trump said during a lengthy press conference in Singapore on Tuesday.
