Soon after, Roland Paris, an former foreign policy adviser to Trudeau, responded to Trump’s tweets, criticizing the president for only being capable of firing insults from the comfort of his personal plane rather than in person at the meeting.
“Big tough guy once he’s back on his airplane. Can’t do it in person, and knows it, which makes him feel [weak]. So he projects these feelings onto Trudeau and then lashes out at him. You don’t need to be Freud. He’s a pathetic little man-child,” Paris wrote.
