Donald Trump

Someone's lying… and it probably isn't Canada's sweetheart Justin Trudeau.

In audio obtained overnight by NBC News, you can hear Donald Trump admitting to made up facts about the United States running a trade deficit with Canada without knowing whether that was actually the case. The Office of the United States Trade Representative says the U.S. has a trade surplus (not deficit) with Canada.

Once again… POTUS is the source of fake news.

Imitating Trudeau at a recent fundraiser for Missouri Republican Senate candidate Josh Hawley, Trump recalled the prime minister insisting during a meeting that the U.S. does not have a trade deficit with Canada:

"Trudeau came to see me. He's a good guy, Justin. He said, ‘No, no, we have no trade deficit with you, we have none. Donald, please.' Nice guy, good-looking guy, comes in — ‘Donald, we have no trade deficit.' He's very proud because everybody else, you know, we're getting killed … So, he's proud. I said, ‘Wrong, Justin, you do.' I didn't even know. … I had no idea. I just said, ‘You're wrong.' You know why? Because we're so stupid. … And I thought they were smart. I said, ‘You're wrong, Justin.' He said, ‘Nope, we have no trade deficit.' I said, ‘Well, in that case, I feel differently,' I said, ‘but I don't believe it.' I sent one of our guys out, his guy, my guy, they went out, I said, ‘Check, because I can't believe it.' ‘Well, sir, you're actually right. We have no deficit, but that doesn't include energy and timber. … And when you do, we lose $17 billion a year.' It's incredible."
