White House senior advisor Kellyanne Conway dodged Monday when asked how President Donald Trump would repair U.S. relations with Canada.
During a Fox News interview, host Bill Hemmer noted that Trump had strained relations with Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau during the divisive G7 summit over the weekend.
“I highlighted directly to the president that Canadians did not take it lightly that the United States has moved forward with significant tariffs,” Trudeau remarked. “It’s kind of insulting.”
“What are we to make of this now, our neighbor to the north, Canada, I mean clearly things are a bit sideways — how do we straighten them out,” Hemmer asked.
“But in that way, Trudeau sounds a lot like President Trump,” Conway replied. “He vanquished 17 other opponents and the queen bee herself, mainly running on issue like this, where he has said, what we’ve been doing has been screwing the American worker and American interest in industry, and America herself.”
“There’s a 245% tariff by Canada on cheese after you surpass a quota,” she added.
Hemmer asked how long it would take for the Trump administration to resolve the issue.
“Tough to stay … but this conversation has been going on since transition,” Conway replied. “Trudeau has been here many times. The president and he have met at other summits at other locations. Obviously, Mexico’s involved with NAFTA. This president not tearing up trade agreements and walking away.”
‘Go look at President Trump’s Twitter’: Portland right-wing rally organizer claims ‘mission success’
The organizer of a far-right rally in Portland, Oregon claimed the event was a "success" after President Donald Trump attacked Portlandiers protesting the group.
"A confluence of protesters on opposite ends of the ideological spectrum merged on Portland’s waterfront Saturday in a tense but relatively uneventful face-off that brought national attention, including a tweet in the hours before the protest by President Trump decrying the city’s signature anti-fascist movement," the Oregonian reported Saturday.
When a similar right-wing rally in Charlottesville, Virginia killed Heather Heyer, Trump argued there were "fine people" on both sides of the "Unite the Right" rally.
Why was Jeffrey Epstein buying size 5 women’s panties — while in jail?
The Miami Herald has another bombshell report on Jeffrey Epstein, who died in a Manhattan jail while waiting to stand trial on federal sex crimes charges.
"A decade ago, during a brief stint in Palm Beach County Jail, convicted sex offender Jeffrey Epstein made an odd purchase at the facility’s store: two pairs of small women’s panties, size 5," the Herald reported Saturday night.
The newspaper noted, "the panties raise questions about why a childless male inmate, accused of sexually abusing girls as young as 14, would be allowed to buy female undergarments so small that they wouldn’t fit an average-sized adult woman."

Embattled Rep. Steve King (R-IA) suffered further humiliation on Saturday when only two people showed up for his town hall meeting with Iowa constituents.
