White House trade adviser Peter Navarro blasted Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau in a Fox News interview Sunday, saying there was a "special place in hell" for Trudeau and any foreign leader who engaged in "bad-faith diplomacy" with U.S. President Donald Trump.
Trudeau had told reporters that Trump's decision to invoke national security to justify USA tariffs on steel and aluminum imports was "kind of insulting" to Canadian veterans who had stood by their U.S. allies in conflicts dating back to World War I.
"I don't blame them, I blame our leaders", he said. Trudeau pulled a "sophomoric political stunt for domestic consumption" that amounted to "a betrayal", said Kudlow, who appeared on CNN's "State of the Union" and CBS' "Face the Nation".
"We finished the meeting, really everybody was happy, and I agreed to sign something", Trump said.
Kudlow said the USA had spent the summit negotiating in "good faith" with Trudeau and the other assembled leaders, and that the US had planned to sign the communique until Trudeau's news conference, which Kudlow called a "sophomoric play".Читайте также: City to begin title defence against Emery's Arsenal
