US President Donald Trump is throwing a little extra shade at Prime Minister Justin Trudeau on Twitter, ahead of his first official visit to Canada tomorrow to meet with leaders of some of the world’s most powerful countries at the G7 Summit.

This afternoon the President tweeted “Please tell Prime Minister Trudeau and President Macron that they are charging the U.S. massive tariffs and create non-monetary barriers. 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.”

Yeah, that “Look forward to seeing them tomorrow,” comment sounds pretty sarcastic.

In another tweet, Trump called Trudeau “indignant.”

“Prime Minister 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!” tweeted the President.

Earlier today, The Washington Post reported that Trump isn’t is exactly excited about his trip to The Great White North.

The paper said that Trump has been complaining that the two-day trip to Canada for the meeting with other world leaders is “a distraction” from his upcoming summit with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un in Singapore.

He even wrote a Tweet about it earlier, just to make it clear he’s not a fan.

It’s no secret that tensions are running high between Trump and Trudeau, as the two have been butting heads over the recent steel and aluminum tariffs implemented on imports coming from Canada.

The two leaders also shared a “testy” phone call in late May, where Trump wrongfully asked if Canada was responsible for burning down the White House, referencing the War of 1812.

Trump will be attending G7 meetings in at the luxurious (and very) remote Fairmont Le Manoir Richelieu in the Charlevoix region of Quebec on June 8 and 9.

It’s safe to say this is going to be one interesting trip.
