Trump to Trudeau in testy tariff call: ‘Didn’t you guys burn down the White House?’ | US news | The Guardian “#TraitorTrump trying out for Dumb and Dumber 3.0?”

In reply, Trump asked, according to CNN: “Didn’t you guys burn down the White House?” The White House did not respond to a request for comment and a Canadian official declined to comment on the record. The White House was burned by British troops in 1814 as part of a failed invasion of the mid-Atlantic, more than 50 years before the signing of Canada’s confederation paved the way for the country to become independent.
