Democrat Congressman Blasts Canadian PM Trudeau

Illinois Democratic Rep. Raja Krishnamoorthi takes exception with Canadian Prime Minister Trudeau and backs Trump in the G7 meeting.

“While I have serious concerns about President Trump’s approach to trade talks with Canada, Prime Minister Trudeau has placed our trade relationship with Canada at risk by publicly feuding with President Trump on the world stage,” Krishnamoorthi said in a statement posted on his website.

The Democratic congressman said Trudeau is “sabotaging” world leaders instead of coming to a consensus on trade. Krishnamoorthi’s comments come as Trudeau criticized Trump after he left the G7 summit, saying that Canada would retaliate if the U.S. does not remove the recently implemented tariffs.
