Canada has already responded—after President Donald Trump admitted yesterday—to “making things up” when he talked about trade with our Prime Minister.
Trump said when he talked to Justin Trudeau—he told him the US had a trade deficit with Canada.
Trudeau said that wasnt right—-but Trump told him he was wrong—-and admitted he had no clue.
Today–the feds sent out a release with a note from the Office of the U-S trade rep—–who confirmed that the U-S has a trade SURPLUS with Canada.
In fact—in 2016—it was 12.5-billion dollars.
From the things that make you smack your head file….
President Donald Trump was caught during a speech in Missouri yesterday—smirking about the fact he “made things up” about trade—-during a meeting with our Prime Minister.
Trump claimed the U-S has a trade deficit with Canada—but when actually said it—he had no idea.
When Trudeau corrected him—Trump countered it—-even though he didnt really know.
Bruce Heyman used to be the U-S Ambassador to Canada.
He went on Twitter this morning to apologize to us—to shame Trump—and to say that throwing Canada under the bus—is just wrong.
