White House official called Trudeau ‘that little punk kid running Canada’

Trump economic adviser Larry Kudlow says a White House official called Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau a “little punk kid running Canada.”

In remarks Wednesday night at a dinner hosted by the conservative American Spectator magazine on Capitol Hill, Kudlow boasted about the Trump administration’s governance of the economy, saying that President Trump has ended the “war on business” and ushered in an economic boom. He defended the administration’s efforts to overhaul taxes and reduce regulations, as well as Trump’s efforts to overhaul trade deals.

Kudlow said that Trump’s aggressive stance in negotiations with China is justified, and also boasted about the U.S.-Mexico-Canada Agreement.
