Trump made the remarks in Singapore, at a press conference following his meeting with Kim Jong Un.
During a press conference in Singapore, Donald Trump again criticized Justin Trudeau for his G7 remarks.
Here’s part of what Trump said:
“When I got out to the plane, I think that Justin probably didn’t know that Air Force One has about 20 televisions. And I see the television and he’s giving a news conference about how he will not be pushed around by the United States and I say push him around? We just shook hands. It was very friendly. … No, I have a good relationship with Justin Trudeau. I really did, other than he had a news conference, that he had because he assumed I was in an airplane and I wasn’t watching. He learned. That’s going to cost a lot of money for the people of Canada. He learned. You can’t do that. You can’t do that.”
Trump’s full comments can be seen below:
When asked for his response, Trudeau did not directly address Trump’s latest remarks:
“Obviously we support the continuing efforts by the president on North Korea. We look forward to looking at the details of the agreement. On his comments, as I said, I’m going to stay focused on defending jobs for Canadians and supporting Canadian interests.”
