White House trade adviser Peter Navarro on Sunday blasted Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, saying there was a “special place in hell” for the foreign leader because he disagrees with President Donald Trump on trade.
In an interview on Fox News Sunday, host Christ Wallace noted that Trump had ripped Trudeau on Twitter, calling him “dishonest and weak” because he gave a press conference after Trump had departed the G7 summit. Trudeau argued that Trump is making a strategist mistake by placing tariffs on Canadian steel.
“Is that really how we want to deal with our second-biggest trading partner?” Wallace wondered.
Navarro appeared slightly enraged about Trudeau’s remarks.
“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.”
“That’s what weak dishonest Justin Trudeau did,” he added. “To my friends in Canada, that was one of the worst political miscalculations of a Canadian leader in modern Canadian history.”

Swiss holding ‘funeral march’ to mark disappearance of an Alpine glacier
Dozens of people will undertake a "funeral march" up a steep Swiss mountainside on Sunday to mark the disappearance of an Alpine glacier amid growing global alarm over climate change.
The Pizol "has lost so much substance that from a scientific perspective it is no longer a glacier," Alessandra Degiacomi, of the Swiss Association for Climate Protection, told AFP.
The organisation which helped organise Sunday's march said around 100 people were due to take part in the event, set to take place as the UN gathers youth activists and world leaders in New York to mull the action needed to curb global warming.

Security forces fired live rounds at protesters calling for the ouster of Egyptian president: report
Egyptian security forces clashed with hundreds of anti-government protesters in the port city of Suez on Saturday, firing tear gas and live rounds, said several residents who participated in the demonstrations.
A heavy security presence was also maintained in Cairo's Tahrir Square, the epicentre of Egypt's 2011 revolution, after protests in several cities called for the removal of general-turned-president Abdel Fattah al-Sisi.
Such demonstrations are rare after Egypt effectively banned protests under a law passed following the 2013 military ouster of Islamist ex-president Mohamed Morsi.
