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

Published

on

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.

President Donald Trump declared himself exonerated by former campaign manager Corey Lewandowski in an early morning tweet.

The president tagged Lewandowski, who testified Tuesday before the House Judiciary Committee, and "Fox & Friends" in a Twitter post reacting to coverage of the congressional hearing.

"As Corey Lewandowski stated very clearly yesterday in front of the House Judiciary Committee, President Trump didn’t do anything wrong or illegal," Trump tweeted about himself. "But they all know that. The Democrats are hurting our Country, and getting nothing done. Shameful!"

‘Trump people lie — we know that’: Ex-House GOP staffer shreds Democrats for letting Lewandowski off the hook

Published

on

MSNBC's Mika Brzezinski denounced President Donald Trump's former campaign manager Corey Lewandowski as "rude" and "insolent" -- but her fellow "Morning Joe" panelists ripped House Democrats for letting him off the hook with obstructing their investigation.

Lewandowski turned the House Judiciary Committee hearing into a "circus," Brzezinski said, and panelists agreed he unlawfully claimed executive privilege, and a former Republican House staffer said he should have been charged with contempt of Congress.

"He was a mini Trump," Brzezinski said. "You can speak to Corey Lewandowski in real life, and often you can see someone who doesn't seem like Trump. In front of the cameras, he was playing for an audience of one. He was rude, he was insolent, he was stonewalling and, ultimately, being revealed to be a liar after being shown that he went on a national TV show, Ari Melber, it's not like a camera was shoved in his face, and he chose to lie to the American people."
