She also added that Canada is “very measured” and that its country’s officials “use fact-based arguments.”
Freeland’s statement was in response to the attack made by Peter Navarro, White House National Trade Council Director, and Larry Kudlow, White House economic adviser.
During his interview with Fox News, Navorro stated, “There’s a special place in hell for any foreign leader that engages in bad faith diplomacy with President Donald J. Trump and then tries to stab him in the back on the way out the door.”
Kudlow also slammed Trudeau for U.S. steel and aluminum import tariffs criticisms, calling the criticisms “a betrayal.”
Kudlow stated, You just don’t behave that way, OK? It is a betrayal, OK? He is essentially double-crossing — not just double crossing President Trump, but the other members of the G-7, who were working together and pulling together this communique.”
He continued, “President Trump played that process in good faith. So, I ask you, he gets up in the airplane and leaves. And then Trudeau starts blasting him in a domestic news conference? I’m sorry. It is a betrayal. That is a double-cross.”
