Trump boasts of threatening Canada into trade concessions: ‘We’ve made them nice’

U.S. President Donald Trump boasted again on Tuesday of successfully threatening Prime Minister Justin Trudeau into NAFTA concessions, claiming that Canada wasn’t “nice” to the U.S. on trade until he intervened and “made them nice.”

Trump made the comments at a Republican dinner in Washington. He seemed to believe his rambling speech was private, musing at one point about the possibility that it would “leak.” In fact, it was being filmed by the media.
