Serial liar Donald Trump calls Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau a liar, who is “weak” and “very dishonest” after the media blasts Trump for his unhinged behavior at the G-7 Summit in Canada. Um, a pathological liar calling someone else a liar is just rich….
Trump is now threatening to not endorse the communique he agreed to hours ago because the leaders of the G-6 countries didn’t cave to his bullying but stood their ground.
Trump rage-tweeted: “Based on Justin’s false statements at his news conference, and the fact that Canada is charging massive Tariffs to our U.S. farmers, workers and companies, I have instructed out U.S. reps not to endorse the Communique as we look at tariffs on automobiles flooding the U.S. market.”

Trump followed that up with another tweet: “PM Justin Trudeau of Canada acted so meek and mild during our @G7 meetings only to give a new conference after I left saying that “US tariffs were kind of insulting” and he “will not be pushed around.” Very dishonest & weak. Our tariffs are in response to his 270% on dairy.”

Um, Canadian autos? Does this moron know the automobiles coming from Canada are from U.S. automakers and mostly working class Americans purchase them?
Canadian-assembled vehicles “flooding the U.S. Market” include such American brands as the Ford Edge, the Lincoln MKX and MKT, the Chevy Equinox and Impala, the Chrysler Pacifica and Dodge Grand Caravan mini-vans and the light-duty Chevy Silverado and GMC Sierra trucks. https://t.co/hjBXkdOJ3B

Flavio Volpe, president of Canada’s Automotive Parts Manufacturers Association, mocked Trump on Twitter: “So…. you’re suggesting using a National Security regulation to charge $8B in tariffs to *American* consumers who buy 1 million cars made by American automakers, containing 60% American parts content, because of the price of milk in Windsor?”

PM Trudeau’s office issued a statement (shameful that they felt compelled to):
Statement from the Prime Minister’s Office:
We are focused on everything we accomplished here at the #G7 summit.
The Prime Minister said nothing he hasn’t said before — both in public, and in private conversations with the President.

The meltdown comes after a photo of German Chancellor Angela Merkel staring down Trump went viral. There is a second photo that shows Managing Director of the IMF, Christine Lagarde and Merkel looking at Trump with disbelief after he showed up late for the gender equality breakfast at the G-7 Summit.
Reaction on Twitter:
To our allies: bipartisan majorities of Americans remain pro-free trade, pro-globalization & supportive of alliances based on 70 years of shared values. Americans stand with you, even if our president doesn’t.

This week started with @realDonaldTrump boosting a Chinese company identified as a national security threat to the U.S. It ended with him standing up for Russia and alienating our allies at the G7. #MAGA

The dairy issue he is complaining about was resolved in TPP.
Which he withdrew from right after taking office. https://t.co/eyvTjMrv5q

POTUS refers to one of our closest allies with less respect than he shows a NK despot who has killed his own citizens. https://t.co/oY4iP9QTpo

Unlike you, PM Justin Trudeau of Canada is neither dishonest nor weak.
Unlike you, PM Justin Trudeau was elected without Russian help.
Unlike you, PM Justin Trudeau isn't a disgrace to his country.

You really need to stop talking before you get us all killed. You are literally the worst shambolic choad of a President we’ve ever had.
