Trade talks with Canada collapsed on Friday after insulting off-the-record comments President Donald Trump made to a Bloomberg reporter were leaked, reports the Toronto Star.

According to the report, Trump wanted some of his comments during a Bloomberg interview to be “off the record,”  and admitted that he is not making any compromises at all in the talks with Canada — but won’t say so in public because “it’s going to be so insulting they’re not going to be able to make a deal.”

“Here’s the problem. If I say no — the answer’s no. If I say no, then you’re going to put that, and it’s going to be so insulting they’re not going to be able to make a deal…I can’t kill these people,” he said about the Canadian officials.

Trump added, that he was “scaring the Canadians into submission by repeatedly threatening to impose tariffs.”

“Off the record, Canada’s working their ass off. And every time we have a problem with a point, I just put up a picture of a Chevrolet Impala,” Trump said, according to the source.

The report notes that the Impala is produced at the General Motors plant in Oshawa, Ontario.

Moore's remarks came after The New York Times published accounts from a new book, which found that two of Kavanaugh's accusers were credible.

In a statement to the press, Moore defended Kavanaugh on Wednesday.

"I too was the subject of false allegations, but unlike Justice Kavanaugh and others who have suffered the ire of the left, I filed suit against my accusers and their conspirators," Moore said. "For over two years, I have not seen nor been able to question any of those who went on national television tol tell their false stories just 32 days before the election in December 2017, and ironically I have been sued for defamation for merely denying their false and malicious accusations."
