Trudeau trash-talks Trump after summit; POTUS finishes him on Twitter, withdraws endorsement

[sharenow]

Suggestion to world leaders: If you have something to say to President Donald Trump, say it to his face, not behind his back. Doing otherwise could cost you “bigly.”

Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau learned this lesson the hard way when, following Trump’s early departure from the G-7 economic summit over the weekend, he held a press conference to take a few digs at his American counterpart.

During the presser Trudeau dinged Trump over proposed tariffs on steel and aluminum, saying that “Canadians did not take it lightly that the United States has moved forward with significant tariffs on our steel and aluminum industry.”

He also complained that he found the tariffs “kind of insulting.”

Before the conclusion of the press conference the Canadian prime minister added that he was “happy to announce that we have released a joint communique by all seven countries.”

Though Trump had originally backed the joint statement (or communique), that changed once he heard about his Canadian counterpart’s remarks.

In a series of scathing tweets posted Saturday evening, the president backed out of the communique and excoriated Trudeau for his backhanded behavior:

This unexpected withdrawal reportedly threw the summit into a “disarray.”

While the leftist media blame Trump for the “disarray,” the blame really lies with Trudeau for his phoniness. He should have addressed his grievances directly with the president instead of waiting until after the summit to announce his complaints to the entire world. But he didn’t.

“The prime minister and the president had a very positive, productive meeting and it lasted longer than originally scheduled,” one of Trudeau’s senior government officials confirmed to the CBS News on Friday.

The Canadian prime minister seemingly enjoys trolling his counterparts.

“Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau appeared to hold back laughter Friday at the G7 summit when he presented President Trump with a framed photo of a hotel and brothel that Trump’s grandfather once operated in British Columbia,” the Washington Examiner reported Saturday.

How mature …
