Ezra Levant: Why Trump ripped Trudeau in trade deficit speech

Ezra LevantRebel Commander

On last night's show, I explained why Trump decided to bash Justin Trudeau in his speech about America's trade deficit.

Unlike China and Mexico, Trump doesn't often bash Canada in his speeches. The fact that he brought up a discussion about correcting Justin Trudeau's claims about Canadian-American trade points to a souring relationship.

Trudeau was recently humiliated in China after a hamfisted attempt to force "feminism" and workers rights into trade discussions, now it appears his American charm offensive is starting to fall apart.

Your theory is correct for the most part, however I didn’t throw in my Wild Card, which is I expect a new and competent Conservative leader before the next election.
No matter how uninformed Liberal voters are, money talks. If they have none, they will cross the track to the Conservative side, especially if they see that the US is booming.

Undermining Canada will all his “little caveats” that don’t belong in a trade deal is not representing Canada or standing up for Canada!

Fat, orange butt??? Watching CNN again Billy Bob?

If he had done anything else, you would have accused him of being weak and not standing up for Canada.
We could send Ezra down there to kiss Trump’s fat orange butt better.

“Nixon called daddy Trudeau an asshole and I imagine Trump thinks about the same of our fearless leader.
Interesting times ahead.”

Giving trudeau asshole status is giving him way to much credit…At least an asshole helps the function of getting rid of bad waste in one s body..Maybe trudeau and his globalist scumbags will get hit with a ball of their own shit that their forcing down our throats..

I’m surprised that Trump hasn’t ripped into Trudeau over his pardoning of the returning enemy combatant ISIS fighters .
And I don’t think the Americans are going to be happy with a Sharia compliant United Nations Global one world country to share their northern border.
Nixon called daddy Trudeau an asshole and I imagine Trump thinks about the same of our fearless leader.
Interesting times ahead.

Aha! Drew Wakariuk… Since our Boy Blunder has to be shown how to tie his shoelaces again each morning, Canada’s terminally dumb international relations policies are evidently the reflections and meanderings of the “fried my brains at Woodstock” Gerald Butts… Unfortunately, sigh, it’s as simple as that….

GEEZ! Even i did not think Justin was stupid enough to try and link trade with SJW bullshit when it came to China. I guess he proved me wrong. Seriously even his handlers must be f-ing stupid if they let him go there to push that.

You got it exactly right.

Billy, thinking Canadains will send by to hold Trump’s jacket for him while he mops the floor with the ferret.

It is no wonder why Trudeau is confused about trade , just look at the team he took to China . Canada is headed to third world static at warp speed . Canada is done if spud gets in again . But by then the voters will be to stoned to know or care .
Canadians need referendums because the government is not working for our best interests .

Ron Joseph, your theory about throwing out Trudeau is wishful thinking. Allow me to explain:
Trudeau is getting frustrated. He’s been trying to subtly pick a fight with Trump for a long time. His direct attack at the table with POTUS was just an escalation in an attempt to rile the tiger and get him to attack poor Justin (Canadians being collateral damage). You see, if mean Mr. Trump attacks poor little gorgeous Justin, then Canadians will naively rally to support the underdog.
Fellow globalist Scheer will likely come to Trudeau’s defense (as he always does) when it comes to dealing with the Donald, without consideration to what the economic damage this “war” will have on Canadians.
This is a Trudeau ploy to get re-elected. The Canadian public by-and-large (thanks to our leftist MSM) hate Trump and will come to Justin’s defense, regardless of the suicidal economic ramifications.
Unfortunately, the Trudeau/Scheer alliance will result in another Liberal majority in 2019 because in the eyes of too many Canadians, “poster boy” Justin is preferable to the bland Mr. Scheer.

Take note of that screen capture of lil spud. That’s how feels about you.

Watch, within 6 months Trump is going to get Trudeau for all his negative and insulting remarks on Trump and the USA. The US could get its lumber from South America.
It won’t be good for the Canadian people as Canada will be in such bad shape that we may lose part of our pensions. However it will be worth every nickel if we can throw out Trudeau.
The problem may be; will the uninformed Liberal voters realize that Trudeau is the reason for the
Depression?
