Trump says he refused meeting with Trudeau, hates Freeland

President Trump claimed Wednesday that he turned down a meeting with Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau as the two countries attempt to overcome a rift in trade policy.

“His tariffs are too high, and he doesn’t seem to want to move, and I’ve told him ‘forget about it,'” Trump told reporters during a press conference at the United Nations in New York.

“We’re very unhappy with the negotiations and the negotiation style of Canada. We don’t like their representative very much,” he added in an apparent reference to Canadian Foreign Minister Chrystia Freeland.
