Trump Confirms That He Lied To And Insulted Canada

Trump didn’t try to deny that he lied to and insulted Canada. Instead, he attacked the press and said that now Canada knows where he stands.

Trump tweeted:

Trump is blaming the press, but the leak could have come from his own staff

Trump confirmed the report that he said to Bloomberg:

“Here’s the problem. If I say no — the answer’s no. If I say no, then you’re going to put that, and it’s going to be so insulting they’re not going to be able to make a deal … I can’t kill these people.”

….

“Off the record, Canada’s working their ass off. And every time we have a problem with a point, I just put up a picture of a Chevrolet Impala.”

The leak of his comments either came from Bloomberg, who denied that they leaked, and journalists would have zero motivation for betraying an off the record agreement, or it came from the White House itself. Those are the only possibilities, and since Trump is a pathological liar, one could logically suspect that an administration that leaks about everything also leaked Trump‘s quote.

Canada and Mexico don’t have to make a deal with Trump

Canada and Mexico could negotiate their own agreement and force Trump to accept their terms. Trump falsely believes that he has magic negotiating powers, but he doesn’t. American jobs could be killed due to Trump‘s lies and arrogance. Canada now has confirmation that Trump is looking to compromise and make a deal. The deadline to get this agreement done so it can be given the Republican-controlled Congress is today. If these talks fail, the failure will belong to Donald Trump.
