Today you said:
It may be smart election-year politics to thump your chest and criticize your friend and your No. 1 trading partner constantly…. but it is a slippery slope, and all of us should hope that it doesn’t have a long-term impact on the relationship.
This is a bald faced lie. I am having difficulty coming up with a suitable response… in fact, I don’t believe it deserves the honour of a response.
But, to emphasize the point that my Prime Minister and indeed none of the leaders in the current campaign have done anything to insult the US to the extent you seem to think they have… then I will take the heat myself in order to save them the unnecessary distraction. I’ll give you something to be insulted by.
It’s a damn good thing that there are 300 million more people in the United States of America than the 100 or so running the White House.
