White House trade adviser Peter Navarro blasted Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau in a Sunday interview for his negative comments towards President Donald Trump.
“There’s a special place in hell for any foreign leader that engages in bad faith diplomacy with President Donald J. Trump and then tries to stab him in the back on the way out the door,” Navarro said to Chris Wallace on “Fox News Sunday.” “And that’s what bad faith Justin Trudeau did with that stunt press conference.”
Navarro’s comments come as Trudeau criticized Trump after he left the G7 summit, saying that Canada would retaliate if the U.S. does not remove the recently implemented tariffs. Trudeau trashed Trump’s decision to place tariffs on steel and aluminum from U.S. allies, calling it “insulting.” (RELATED: President Trump Slams ‘Dishonest And Weak’ G7 Performance From Trudeau)
“I highlighted directly to the president that Canadians did not take it lightly that the United States has moved forward with significant tariffs on our steel and aluminum industry,” Trudeau said in a Saturday speech. “Particularly, [they] did not take lightly that it’s for a national security reason that for Canadians, who stood shoulder to shoulder with American soldiers in far off lands in conflicts from the First World War onward, it’s kind of insulting.”
Navarro called Trudeau’s decision “one of the worst political miscalculations” in modern Canadian history, saying all Trudeau had to do was “take the win.”
