Trump officials kissing up to Canada after the president’s G7 attacks on Trudeau

Published

The White House is quietly trying to repair the American government’s fractured relationship with Canada as President Donald Trump is in Singapore to meet with North Korean leader Kim Jong-un, Politico reported Monday.

Following the G7 meeting, President Trump lashed out at Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, trashing his “false statements” and describing Trudeau as “dishonest and weak.”

White House trade adviser Peter Navarro further escalated those attacks during an appearance on Fox News Sunday.

“There’s a special place in hell for any foreign leader that engages in bad faith diplomacy with President Donald J. Trump,” Navarro insisted. “And then tries to stab him in the back on the way out the door. And that’s what bad faith Justin Trudeau did at that stunt press conference.”

On CNN’s State of the Union, Trump economic advisor Larry Kudlow labeled Trudeau as “polarizing,” “sophomoric,” “deceptive,” and “amateurish.”

Now, Politico reports the administration is in “damage control” over Trump’s splintered alliance with our northern neighbor.

On Monday, Agriculture Secretary Sonny Perdue announced a trip to Canada later this week to meet Lawrence MacAulay, his Canadian counterpart. The trip is meant to highlight cooperation between the two countries.

U.S. Trade Representative Robert Lighthizer also had a call scheduled with Canadian Foreign Minister Chrystia Freeland to discuss NAFTA renegotiation.

All of the countries attending the G7 meeting agreed to a communique showing shared priorities. President Trump withdrew from the communique in a fit of rage on Saturday.

The election is eight months away, but President Donald Trump is already crying foul.

Bloomberg News wrote Sunday that Trump is already working to undermine the American electoral process by attacking the Democratic presidential primary.

"Indeed, his campaign, with the full support of the Republican Party, is already waging a vigorous crusade to destroy his opposition. No, it's not Joe Biden, who inspired Trump's shakedown of Ukraine. Trump's gunning for bigger game: democracy itself," wrote Francis Wilkinson for Bloomberg.

READ IT: More than 1,100 former US Department of Justice officials tell Bill Barr to resign now

Published

on

More than 1,100 former US Department of Justice officials called on Attorney General William P. Barr on Sunday to step down after he intervened last week to lower the Justice Department’s sentencing recommendation for President Trump’s longtime friend and political crony Roger J. Stone Jr.

“It is unheard of for the Department’s top leaders to overrule line prosecutors, who are following established policies, in order to give preferential treatment to a close associate of the President, as Attorney General Barr did in the Stone case,” wrote the former Justice Department attorneys in their Sunday letter. “It is even more outrageous for the Attorney General to intervene as he did here — after the President publicly condemned the sentencing recommendation that line prosecutors had already filed in court.”

Air Force One in flight.

Another oops moment happened for President Donald Trump's campaign manager stole George W. Bush's photo from the Daytona 500 in 2004.

Except, it wasn't him. As many people pointed out, the image was from 16 years ago by photographer Jonathan Ferrey, CNN reported. Parscale was forced to delete it and tweet it out again with an underwhelming photo.
