Trump has consistently been against what he considers unfair trade practices from America's biggest trade partners, which includes Canada, Mexico, and the European Union. That's what weak, dishonest Justin Trudeau did.
Smith also recounted the incident when Trump denied German chancellor Angela Merkel a handshake during a meeting in the Oval Office. He also said the USA had a trade deficit of $17 billion with Canada, though he implied that it might be as large as $100 billion. "I mean seriously, Russia, who took over Crimea, all the violence that's taken place in Ukraine, the poisoning of people in the United Kingdom, the influence in our election this last time period", Heyman recounted. At one point he wrote, "Justin acts hurt when called out!" "I'm unconcerned about our capacity to continue to do what we need to do".
Yet his top diplomat, Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, downplayed the severity of the rift.
Trump also kept up the fight with Trudeau during the trip to Singapore for the historic meeting with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un.
"The president, coming late, stands before the cameras and says, "Why don't we add Russian Federation to the group".
Peter Navarro, the director of the White House National Trade Council, took the attacks a step further.

Jason Clemens, executive vice-president of the Vancouver-based Fraser Institute, which has long opposed supply management, nevertheless suggested it is potential victor for Canadians - and any party fearless enough to take a stand. Trudeau stuck our president in the back.
"Fair trade is now to be called fool trade if it is not reciprocal", said Mr Trump, who flew from Canada to Singapore for a meeting with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un. He said that Canada has to stand up for itself.
U.S. President Donald Trump wants to eradicate this country's dairy industry, the sector's farmers said Monday amidst increased trade tensions between Canada and the United States. Freeland later told reporters that "we don't think that's a useful or productive way to do business".
The comments dashed hopes that Trump had moved on from what he believed to be was a "dishonest" action by Trudeau.
It appears as though Trump is the one performing a stunt, raging at Trudeau in theatrical fashion without a clear reason to be so worked up. Can't do it in person. "And for God's sake, doing it against Canada after the prime minister issued a fairly mild statement about the Canadians just standing their ground, and then to have him attacked on the Sunday-morning talk shows...."
"I know it didn't look friendly", Trump said. From promoting democracy and to fighting terrorism, "we're on the same page".
And add to that the fact that the USA pays close to the entire cost of NATO-protecting many of these same countries that rip us off on Trade (they pay only a fraction of the cost-and laugh!).
