Leaders across the political spectrum expressed their support for Prime Minister Justin Trudeau in the aftermath of his G7 spat with U.S. President Donald Trump.
But Trudeau is not without fault.
Since Donald Trump became President of the United States, The Trudeau government has consistently acted in bad faith towards the 45th President of the United States.
In fact, Trump originally stated that he had no problem with Canada on trade. This is what he said about Canada in January 2017, the month he was sworn into office:
"Canada is no problem," said Trump.
"Do not worry about Canada, do not even think about them. That is a separate thing and they are fine and we have had a very fair relationship with Canada. It has been much more balanced and much more fair. So we do not have to worry about Canada, we do not even think about them."
So what has changed in the past 18 months?
Here are just some examples of Trudeau Liberals acting in bad faith towards the leader of our friend, ally, and top trading partner:
- Justin Trudeau has never shied away from insulting the US President and criticizing Trump when he's not in the same room
- The Trudeau Liberals even tried to raise money by fear-mongering a Trump Presidency
