Donald Trump Admits To Making Up Facts In Meeting About Trade With Justin Trudeau — LISTEN

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, ├óΓé¼╦£No, no, we have no trade deficit with you, we have none. Donald, please.’ Nice guy, good-looking guy, comes in ├óΓé¼ΓÇ¥ ├óΓé¼╦£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, ├óΓé¼╦£Wrong, Justin, you do.’ I didn’t even know. … I had no idea. I just said, ├óΓé¼╦£You’re wrong.’ You know why? Because we’re so stupid. ├óΓé¼┬ª And I thought they were smart. I said, ├óΓé¼╦£You’re wrong, Justin.’ He said, ├óΓé¼╦£Nope, we have no trade deficit.’ I said, ├óΓé¼╦£Well, in that case, I feel differently,’ I said, ├óΓé¼╦£but I don’t believe it.’ I sent one of our guys out, his guy, my guy, they went out, I said, ├óΓé¼╦£Check, because I can’t believe it.’ ├óΓé¼╦£Well, sir, you’re actually right. We have no deficit, but that doesn’t include energy and timber. ├óΓé¼┬ª And when you do, we lose $17 billion a year.’ It’s incredible.”
