EU leader jabs at Trump adviser: ‘Special place in heaven’ for Trudeau

Greg Nash

Top European Union official Donald Tusk said on Sunday that there is a “special place in heaven” for Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau in a sly rebuke of recent comments made by one of President Trump’s trade officials.

“There is a special place in heaven for @JustinTrudeau,” tweeted Tusk, the president of the European Council. “Canada, thank you for the perfect organisation of G7!”

Tusk’s comments came shortly after Trump’s trade adviser Peter Navarro said there was a “special place in hell” for leaders who betrayed Trump.


“There’s a special place in hell for any foreign leader that engages in bad faith diplomacy with President Donald J. Trump and then tries to stab him in the back on the way out the door,” Navarro said on “Fox News Sunday.”

“That’s what bad faith Justin Trudeau did with that stunt press conference. That’s what weak, dishonest Justin Trudeau did, and that comes right from Air Force One,” he continued.

Trudeau announced on Saturday that all nations at the Group of Seven summit had signed a joint communique.

Later on Saturday, Trump criticized the Canadian leader and said the U.S. would not sign the communique despite Trudeau’s previous statement.

“Based on Justin’s false statements at his news conference, and the fact that Canada is charging massive Tariffs to our U.S. farmers, workers and companies, I have instructed our U.S. Reps not to endorse the Communique as we look at Tariffs on automobiles flooding the U.S. Market!” the president tweeted.

Trudeau pushed back against Trump’s tweet by saying he had been consistent with Trump during the summit.

“The Prime Minister said nothing he hasn’t said before — both in public, and in private conversations with the President,” the Prime Minister’s Office said in a statement.
