Hours after the president of the United States, Donald Trump, dynamite the minimum agreement reached yesterday at the G7 Summit in Canada, the former director of the CIA John Brennan today criticized the “protectionist policies” and “antics” of the president and asked patience to the “allies and friends” of the country.
“Your misguided protectionist and clowning policies are damaging our position in the world, as well as our national interests.” Your way of seeing the world does not represent American ideals, “Brennan said in a Twitter message in response to Trump’s tweet. who insulted the Prime Minister of Canada, Justin Trudeau.
In his message, published hours after leaving the Canadian town of La Malbaie, where the G7 Summit was held these days, the president blamed Canada for his decision not to fully subscribe to the joint statement signed by the rest of the countries and He did not hesitate to insult Trudeau, whom he called “dishonest and weak.”
Given this panorama, Brennan made a clear appeal to the international community.
“To our allies and friends: be patient, Mr. Trump is a temporary aberration, the United States that you knew will return,” he said.
In a similar sense, the former FBI director James Comey, who has become the president’s scourge since he was fired last year for his role in the investigation of the so-called Russian plot ‘, which seeks to elucidate the possible relationship between the Kremlin and the campaign of the now president.
“Our relationship in matters of national security with Canada is vital and saves American lives, it was built over generations and is greater than any person or dispute, and all this will be left behind,” said Comey.
The relationship between these two North American countries is going through a crisis since the White House decided to impose tariffs on imports of steel and aluminum from Canada, a measure that Trump has defended on the grounds of national security.
This justification led Trudeau to ask himself, during an interview given last weekend, “in what universe can Canada represent a threat to the United States”.
