I don't know if Larry Kudlow used to use cocaine, but we all know that obama did, because he told us about it in his 1995 memoir, Dreams From My Father,
"Pot had helped, and booze; maybe a little blow when you could afford it. Not smack though."
For those who don't know, saint justin, the prime minister of canada, had a temper tantrum at a press conference after the G7 meeting.
Recently, the US decided to impose tariffs on steel and aluminum imports to protect domestic producers, using the national security exception contained in Article XXI of GATT since 1947
“Canadians, we’re polite, we’re reasonable, but we also will not be pushed around,” Trudeau said at his own, separate news conference at the meeting’s end.
“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. “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.”
Canada took part in WW2, Korea, Gulf War 1, and Afghanistan, but sat out the other conflicts such as Vietnam, Gulf War 2, and so on.
In WW1, Canada was in it from the get-go as part of the British Empire, with the Canadian parliament having no say in the matter.
Woodrow Wilson put the US in in 1917, having campaigned in 1916 on the slogan "he kept us out of the war." Not so much a case of Canada standing shoulder-to-shoulder, more a case of the US coming to the rescue
No doubt US farmers find it "kind of insulting" that Canada imposes a 270% tariff on US dairy despite the US having stood shoulder-to-shoulder with Canadian soldiers, well, you know the rest
Professor Peter Navarro is White House Trade Advisor
“There’s a special place in hell for any foreign leader that engages in bad faith diplomacy with Donald J. Trump and then tries to stab him in the back on the way out the door,” Mr. Navarro told Fox News Sunday.
Navarro, the Trump trade adviser, said his harsh assessment of what “bad faith” Trudeau did with “that stunt press conference” on Saturday “comes right from Air Force One.”
He said Trump “did the courtesy to Justin Trudeau to travel up to Quebec for that summit. He had other things, bigger things, on his plate in Singapore. ... He did him a favor and he was even willing to sign that socialist communique. And what did Trudeau do as soon as the plane took off from Canadian airspace? Trudeau stuck our president in the back. That will not stand.”
Larry Kudlow is Director of the National Economic Council
“He really kind of stabbed us in the back,” Mr. Kudlow told CNN’s State of the Union. “He did a great disservice to the whole G-7.”
Of course, these all pale in comparison to what's coming out of the Canadian side.
Roland Paris, a former foreign policy adviser to Trudeau, ranted “Big tough guy once he’s back on his airplane. Can’t do it in person. ... He’s a pathetic little man-child.”
Wait, didn't justin just say that Canadians are polite and reasonable?
