Now, to be fair to Trump, the British attack on the White House was in retaliation for our attack on York, Ontario (a British colony at the time), but that's pretty much the only way that Canada is connected to this infamous act.
With his new tariffs increasing US isolation, Trump heads to Canada on Friday for a meeting of the Group of Seven industrialized nations.
However, the French leader apparently did not also rule out amending the deal by what he called reaching a "broader agreement" with the Islamic Republic, which would particularly cover its activities in the region. "We will have to work all together on a broader agreement with Iran and [other] countries in the region, our allies", he said, apparently referring to the Gulf monarchies. This section has only been used twice before in USA history to restrict imports: in 1979 on oil imports from Iran, after that country's theocratic revolution resulted in the storming of the US embassy in Tehran, and in 1982 against similar imports from Libya.
Of course, Trump's history was a little off as the White House was set ablaze on August 24, 1814, and Canada didn't become a country until 1867.
Trump has previously admitted to making a claim to Trudeau that he wasn't sure was true, insisting that the US had a trade deficit with Canada.
Trudeau told NBC: "The idea that we are somehow a national security threat to the United States is, quite frankly, insulting and unacceptable".
"And I would just say to all of Canada's American friends - and there are so many - seriously?"
Freeland met with Senate Foreign Relations Committee Chairman Bob Corker Monday to relay Canada's concerns regarding the tariffs, a Corker spokeswoman told CNN. "You can't, among allies in this worldwide context, start a trade war". Corker described the conversation as "heartfelt" but said that he stood his ground with the president.
I guess the only positive about this story is that George W. Bush is no longer the dumbest person we've ever had serving as president of the United States.
Freeland suggested the tense phone call doesn't reflect the nature of Trudeau and Trump's relationship.
"It's understandable that change causes friction", the official said, noting some of Trump's recent tariff announcements have brought stubborn trading partners back to the negotiating table. None of their diplomatic entreaties have persuaded Trump to reverse course after he announced tariffs on European and Canadian steel and aluminum imports to the U.S.
"In this environment, above all we always have to stay polite, stay productive and try to convince (them), to keep the United States on board because they are our historical ally and we need them", said Mr Macron. Trump ended that temporary relief this month, seeking to pressure the other countries to cut new trade agreements with the U.S. Japan was never granted a waiver, despite Prime Mininster Shinzo Abe's pleas.
Macron's comments come as the leaders of the G7 countries are preparing to meet at a trade summit in Canada, which analysts expect will turn into a showdown on trade deals, given Trump's repeated insistence that the USA has the "worst trade deals ever made".
