U.S. President Donald Trump slammed Prime Minister Justin Trudeau during his press conference following historic talks with North Korea on Tuesday, saying Trudeau’s post-G7 summit comments would “cost a lot of money for the people of Canada.”
Trump’s threat comes after Trudeau defended Canada during the G7 summit in Quebec over the weekend, saying his country “will not be pushed around” in regards to the Trump administration’s tariffs on steel and aluminum.
But Trump didn’t seem impressed by the comment.
After the summit with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un in Singapore, Trump recounted his recent tough exchanges with Trudeau — most specifically the U.S. president’s Twitter tirade against Trudeau, whom he has called “dishonest” and “weak.”
Trump said he watched Trudeau’s news conference on Air Force One on his way to Singapore and was upset because he thought he and Trudeau had had a positive meeting at the G7 summit.
