Trump Caught Lying About Canadian-US Trade Surplus

President Donald Trump was caught lying in a tweet about the Canadian-US trade surplus.

On May 31, Trump slapped U.S. allies — Canada, Mexico, EU — with a 25 percent tariff on steel and aluminum.

On June 1, Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau said the U.S. tariffs were an affront to Canadian soldiers who have died alongside their U.S. soldiers, notes The Hill.

Trump responded on Twitter:

The Hill notes “the Office of the U.S. Trade Representative stated in March that the U.S. has an overall trade surplus with Canada.”
