Here's Why Trump Slammed Trudeau in Trade Deficit Speech

Rebel Staff

During his show on Thursday night, Ezra Levant explained exactly why President Donald Trump ripped into Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau during his recent speech on the American deficit. 

Trump does not mention Canada often, so it came as a surprise when he recounted a discussion about correcting Justin Trudeau's claims about Canadian-American trade. Levant explains that in their discussion, Trump and Trudeau were having a "who is tougher" moment. As we all know, trying to act tougher than Trump is not a smart way to deal with the American president.

When Trudeau told him that the was wrong, Trump was so annoyed that he ended up sending aides to check on what the prime minister was saying. Unfortunately for Trudeau, the aides ended up discovering that Trump was right: the U.S. does have a trade deficit with Canada when including oil and lumber. Trump was so happy that Trudeau had failed at one-upping him, he told a crowd of thousands about what happened just to show him who's boss. Watch the full episode linked to above to get the full story!

Paul Taylor—“Trudeau going toe to toe with anyone is laughable.”
It would be like Trudeau the mouse smothering the US elephant. However he may be capable of fooling the Canadian Liberal Voters again.

Britain the country of my forefathers, the country for whom my Father, Mother and Grandfathers fought in two world wars and numerous other smaller wars is sadly no more.
British heritage is of no consequence anymore. It has been swept aside by so called progressives and Liberals, even by conservatives in the name of diversity.
Britain is doomed, is Canada next?
Of course we are, as long as we sit passively by and let Jihadi Justin and his Muslim Ministers run rough shod over us, as we have been doing since the election and as we are persisting in doing at the present time.
I not only cry for England but for my Grandchildren, who will be forced to live in Canada under a Muslim culture of rape and murder and destruction of everything Western and more importantly Christian, advocated and encouraged by a so called Catholic, White person by the name of “Justin Trudeau”.
May he suffer the most painful death for his betrayal of Canada and it’s people and his religion.

I think it’s because I’m in my sixties and I remember what it used to be like here…and what our dark future holds for us…even if we manage to get rid of Justin and comrades.
-—————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————Right on ,Drew. I remember how proud I was to be a Canadian in 1967. That was about the time that St Pierre the Termite started to gnaw away at the foundations of the country. Those who knew it not have no concept except for what the Lib-elite tells them.

The Biblical story comes to mind of there rebuilding of the Temple after the Exile:

“Yet many of the priests and Levites and heads of fathers’ households, the old men who had seen the first temple, wept with a loud voice when the foundation of this house was laid before their eyes, while many shouted aloud for joy…”

Also the prophetic warning that the exile would happen from I Samuel 12:

“Samuel said to the people, “Do not fear. You have committed all this evil, yet do not turn aside from following the Lord, but serve the Lord with all your heart. 21 YOU MUST NOT TURN ASIDE, FOR THEN YOU WOULD GO AFTER FUTILE THINGS WHICH CAN NOT PROFIT OR DELIVER, BECAUSE THEY ARE FUTILE. 22 For the Lord will not abandon His people on account of His great name, because the Lord has been pleased to make you a people for Himself. 23 Moreover, as for me, far be it from me that I should sin against the Lord by ceasing to pray for you; but I will instruct you in the good and right way. 24 Only fear the Lord and serve Him in truth with all your heart; for consider what great things He has done for you. 25 But if you still do wickedly, both you and your king will be swept away.”

But hope remains:
“If My people who are called by My name humble themselves and pray and seek My face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, will forgive their sin and will heal their land.”

Dan Mancuso—-Even I couldn’t hold back my sadness; I watched it 4 times.
The part that got me was when they showed all those British Soldiers marching in the 1900’s and you reflect back that the Brits ran the World, not the US. They didn’t even mention the Great British Navy.
It also made me mad that all those Camel humpers said Britain has no culture. There was more culture in one block of London than entire Muslim Countries.
Multiculturalism should be Banned, just to show the father & son Trudeaus how much we despise them.

Trudeau going toe to toe with anything or anyone is laughable. He’s a mental midget at best.

I was pretty much in tears by the time I got through that video you linked to:

It’s all feet on the desk for this Obummer soul mate. Can you still find cheap real estate in the states?

I concur with Drew Wakariuk’s observation… Trump clearly knows what is going on, his staff certainly knows what is going on, and all the fanciful arguments from our Boy Blunder are not going to carry the day in Washington… As will become too, too painfully obvious for Canada in the coming months, and indeed, years…
commented 2017-12-18 02:00:56 -0500
Because Trump knows what is going on and Justin does not know what day it is.

Billy Howard —Here are two facts that most of us should agree on.
Scheer has to be replaced within 6 months if there is a chance of beating Trudeau. The CPC has to act now.
Canada’s Democracy will not survive 6 or 7 years of Trudeau. This new British video will show what we will be like. (3 minutes)
Do Britain and Canada have culture?

Billy Howard; Or people will say “WTF are you doing poking a bear in the side?” and vote little spud out. I know, wishful thinking.

It appears Trudeau might be outsmarting Trump.
Justin’s jabs at the Donald are finally making him angry, to the point of POTUS dressing down sock-boy. The next step for Justin is angrier words or actions that will, ideally, cause Donald to implement trade barriers or tariffs that Trudeau can point to as an example of how deranged and mean Mr. Trump is and how he hates Canadians. And a distressing trade move or two will also allow Justin to blame Trump for the teetering Canadian economy.
If Justin can manage a tear of two over the bullying, he will soar in support from Canadians who don’t see through this re-election strategy.
Scheer will be in a no-win situation: if he sides with Trudeau, he loses because he can’t muster the pity Justin-the-actor will receive. If he sides against Trudeau, Justin will call him a Trump loving Nazi.
If Trump doesn’t take the bait, maybe CPC has a chance next election. But Donald is Donald, and I doubt he will stand for Justin’s deliberate antics and will likely retaliate with gusto.
If we survive, CPC will have a chance in 2023 with a better leader, OR Scheer might see the writing on the wall (something Harper failed to do) and call a new leadership convention to elect someone that can be respected by Canadians, Trump, and the world (such as Brad Wall, Michelle Rempel, or ?).
