Trump says he'll punish 'the people of Canada' because of Trudeau's news conference

By DANIEL DALE Washington Bureau Chief Tues., June 12, 2018

WASHINGTON—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.

1. Sigh. The longest open border in the world is between US and Canada

Sounds like that won't last much longer.

8. And he knows he can count on the knuckle-draggers just taking his word for it that Trudeau said

truly deeply offensive shit against the USA in this press conference.

I doubt they've ever shown it in entirety on Faux ... probably just tiny and purposefully out-of-context sound bytes, entirely intended to bolster Herr Drumpf's BS storyline.

Ergo we'll have millions of people believing Dumps bullshit AGAIN, living in their carefully constructed stick-boy-fantasy-world.

13. Well the good news is there no Fux propaganda in Canada but they can expect destabilization

because Trudeau also supports diversity.

4. Gotta love waking up to POTUS concern-trolling an entire country, esp when it's our nearest

neighbor and arguably strongest ALLY in the world, that we do $100's of Billions of trade with every year.

I guess this is the new normal.

Yay.

If the petulant, deranged, and damaged little man-child currently in charge of the Executive Branch of the US continues much longer w/this nonsense, the rest of the world is going to band against us and put an end to the hegemony of the US Petro-Dollar, and if they're successful ... Katy bar the door. We in the USA ... are pretty much ALL F***ED.

And Xi and Vlad will be laughing their asses off.

14. Not only neighbor, but from the same group of European/English

settlers plus the decendents of slaves via the Underground Railroad and French who also migrated south to New Orleans known today as "Cajuns"!

6. I think Canada has a good relationship with the EU to sell their "tariff free" goods there.

I can see the Airline sales to Boeing going away for a nice new Airbus...
Dipshit did not think this thru...
