Prime Minister Justin Trudeau is expressing the federal government's support for Donald Trump's efforts to broker a denuclearization deal with North Korea.
But he's taking the high road when it comes to the U.S. president's ongoing trash talk against Canada.
Trudeau says the Liberal government is looking forward to seeing the details of the agreement that emerged from Monday's historic meeting between Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong Un.
But when asked about Trump's latest comments about Canada, Trudeau would say only that he's focused on defending Canadian jobs and interests.
Trump told a lengthy news conference in Singapore that Trudeau's assertion that Canada "will not be pushed around" will end up costing Canadians "a lot of money."
Among the many topics that came up was Trump's recent Twitter campaign against Trudeau, whom he has called "dishonest" and "weak."
Those comments came after Trudeau's closing news conference at the G7 summit in Quebec on Saturday, when the prime minister said he had pushed back against the Trump administration's tariffs on steel and aluminum.
