Well, Justin Trudeau fans, now do you begin to understand why Stephen Harper was exponentially better at being a national leader than Prince Bonehead?
Only an idiot wouldn't realize that Donald Trump's NAFTA bluster was about Mexico and not Canada. And as it turns out, the idiot leading our country indeed did not realize that:
Prominent Republican Rick Santorum says he was stunned when Prime Minister Justin Trudeau pre-emptively offered to sit down with U.S. officials to discuss the North American Free Trade Agreement.
Santorum, who ran against U.S. president-elect Donald Trump for the Republican presidential nomination, said Canada has already failed to butt out the new administration's smouldering distaste for the agreement that created the world's biggest free-trade zone.
In an interview with Evan Solomon, host of CTV's Question Period, Santorum said a negotiator who speaks first during a stare-off usually loses the negotiation.
"I was stunned," said Santorum, who eventually supported Trump's presidential bid and is considered to be close to him. "I think it was not a good move for you guys, great move for the United States."
"And I'm not too sure he was going to ask for anything.... When [Trump] was talking about NAFTA, I guarantee you he wasn't thinking Canadian workers and Canadian trade."...
