(Worthy News) - President Trump engaged in some long-distance trash talking with the leaders of France and Canada over trade Thursday night as he prepares to meet them face-to-face Friday at the Group of Seven summit in Quebec.

“Please tell Prime Minister [Justin] Trudeau [of Canada] and President [Emmanuel] Macron [of France] that they are charging the U.S. massive tariffs and create non-monetary barriers,” Mr. Trump tweeted. “The EU trade surplus with the U.S. is $151 Billion, and Canada keeps our farmers and others out. Look forward to seeing them tomorrow.”

He also said Mr. Trudeau “is being so indignant, bringing up the relationship that the U.S. and Canada had over the many years and all sorts of other things…but he doesn’t bring up the fact that they charge us up to 300% on dairy — hurting our Farmers, killing our Agriculture!” [ Source: Washington Times (Read More...) ]
