– Trump invokes the War of 1812 as justification for tariffs in call with Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau
The Orange Historian and Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau had a testy phone call over new tariffs imposed by the Trump administration targeting steel and aluminum imports coming from Canada.
Canadian Trudeau pressed the Golden Bull Horn on how he could justify the tariffs as a “national security” issue. The Orange Jumpsuit told Trudeau, “Didn’t you guys burn down the White House?” referring to the War of 1812.
The problem with the Gold Fingers comments to Trudeau is that British troops burned down the White House during the War of 1812. Canada did not exist in 1812. Maybe the Orange Dufus should be placing steel and aluminum tariffs on the United Kingdom.
