Trump's Twitter rant against Trudeau garners global reactions

US President Donald Trump made headlines globally after his first Canadian visit during the G7 Summit.

But Trump’s headlines weren’t about his first time here, it was about his parting words.

The President, who left the G7 Summit early to go Singapore for his meeting with Kim Jong Un, called Prime Minister Justin Trudeau “very dishonest and weak.”

“PM Justin Trudeau of Canada acted so meek and mild during our G7 meetings only to give a news conference after I left saying that, ‘US Tariffs were kind of insulting’ and he ‘will not be pushed around.’ Very dishonest & weak,” tweeted Trump. “Our Tariffs are in response to his of 270% on dairy.”

And of course, his words didn’t stop there.

Trump continued to attack Canada in a series of tweets on Sunday.

But as the world watched Trump wage war of words against Trudeau, Twitter feeds began to flood with responses and reactions to the US President.

President of the European Council Donald Tusk said that “There is a special place in heaven for Justin Trudeau.”

And former foreign policy advisor to Trudeau, Roland Paris, called Trump “a pathetic little man-child.”

In China, a political cartoon circulating their media seemed to agree with Paris’ opinion.

Back home, Canada’s Green Party leader flat out called Trump a bully.

And Americans are practically apologizing on behalf of their president.

John Brennan, former CIA Director, said that Trump is a temporary aberration, and asked the States’ allies to be patient.

Meanwhile, a former American Diplomat called us the best neighbours (of course, he spelled it without the “U.”)

And of course, we got thanked for Drake.

Trump’s twitter fingers continued their tirade on Monday, when he threw low-key shade by calling Canada “enemies.”

As for Trudeau, he kept his class in the Twitter war.

“We will always stand up for Canadian workers, their jobs & their livelihoods,” he said.

We have a feeling this is all far from over… considering Trump still has access to Twitter.
