While Justin Trudeau showed off his pretty pink socks to other world leaders at the G7, President Donald Trump was preparing mentally to meet North Korean dictator Kim Jong-un.
The mainstream media blames Trump for the G7 Twitter attacks, but some journalists blame Trudeau for starting it all.
After Trump left the G7, Trudeau told reporters that Canada won’t get pushed around by Donald Trump on trade just after Trudeau and Trump agreed their relationship was a 10 out of 10, and that their relationship on trade was “good.”
That single comment by Trudeau triggered the US President and led him to tweet his opinion to Trudeau, calling him dishonest, which led to all kinds of back and forth in the following days between Canada and the United States.
Hours later Trump had the historic summit with Kim Jong-un, praising him and saying he’s a “smart man.”
The mainstream media suggests Trump didn’t do the right thing, they suggest Trump should have confronted the dictator on human rights issues and oppression against the people of North Korea.
If Trump would have confronted Kim on a negative level, it’s guaranteed that relations would be lost and it could have triggered a possible war between the two countries and allies ranging from trade to nuclear.
Instead Kim agreed to start the denuclearization process in trade for security, which could ultimately lead to peace and freedom in North Korea.
In the end the right call was made by President Trump regardless what the mainstream media says.
