French President Emmanuel Macron (left) and Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau talk Friday at welcoming ceremonies for Group of Seven leaders in Charlevoix, Quebec.

President Donald Trump reprised his criticism of Canada's prime minister Tuesday, threatening that Justin Trudeau's tough exchanges with him over trade policy would "cost a lot of money for the people of Canada."

I cannot imagine a poorer basis for foreign trade policy than the petty personal vengeance of a thin-skinned narcissist.

What an embarrassment for our great nation. First daughter is reaping a financial windfall from daddy being president. trump is being bribed by China. He alienates our allies, while praising thug dictators like Kim and boyfriend Putin. Thanks to all responsible for elevating this walking abortion to POTUS.

Exactly how is our egotistical ignorant president going to make Canada pay? They are our number one trading partner. Those tariffs he is imposing are going to hurt the average U.S. consumer far worse than it will anyone in Canada. The man has no knowledge of world economics.

Canada will pay for words, russia is our friend cause the stuff they do is not words , it is just actually killing of humans that they do. orange man and rocket man take long walks together , smiling and joking and thinking what a friggin idiot you are, and dear leader thinking what a stooge I am dealing with, China and putin land was right, you can play him like an accordion.

Yet I heard that canada can repent by accepting jesus as their savior, insuring no NHL player takes a knee at the playing of the USA national anthem [ by the way will be mandated in canada] and erecting trump statutes in all government offices [ evangelicals have approved this as they will not call the statutes Idols, but statutes like robert e lee statutes ] .

All andy williams recordings of canadian sunset will be required to be burnt at the stake.

"Navarro, who has frustrated some members of the Trump administration by encouraging the president's protectionist instincts, was also rebuked by Republicans for his coarse language." When I heard Navarro's statements followed by Larry Kudlow's spastic rants, you have to ask the question if we really have the right people in the top ranks of this administration. But, then I think that they reflect the stupid nature of our president and his inability to actually conduct himself in a rational manner.
Regardless, CA and its leaders conducted themselves in appropriate ways even with the buffoons we currently have in the WH attacking one of our best allies. Trudeau continues to show how a leader should act instead of how one can make a fool of themselves.
