Justin Trudeau is a “punk kid.” At least, that’s how one White House official apparently sees him.
U.S. President Donald Trump’s economic adviser Larry Kudlow said the official referred to the prime minister as “that little punk kid running Canada” in relation to the frustration in securing the U.S.-Mexico-Canada Agreement, according to the Washington Examiner.
“A friend of mine in the White House, who will go unnamed, said, ‘You know, I know why you’re supporting this deal Larry, it’s because we made a deal. We didn’t walk away, we didn’t end it, we made a deal. Alright? ‘Spite that little punk kid running Canada, we still made it,’” Kudlow said at a dinner Wednesday on Capitol Hill, the news agency reports.
The dinner was hosted by the conservative American Spectator magazine.
