Between hosting the leaders of the world's largest economies at the G7 Summit in Quebec, trying to look commanding in the face of potentially economy-crippling tariffs and serving as Donald Trump's latest punching bag, Justin Trudeau has had a pretty rough weekend.
His earlier comments had followed Trump's own sharp words for Trudeau, whom the president called "dishonest and weak" and accused of making "false statements".

Trudeau, who had said at the news conference that Canada would retaliate for new US tariffs, didn't respond to questions about Trump when the prime minister arrived at a Quebec City hotel Sunday for meetings with other world leaders.
"We have a big trade deficit with Canada".
Trudeau had simply reiterated Canada's stated plan of imposing retaliatory dollar-for-dollar tariffs in response to the new American tariffs on imported steel and aluminum.
