Shit is getting very real between Canada and the USA, or maybe it's more accurate to say that it's getting real between Prime Minister Justin Trudeau and President Donald Trump.
If you're not a fan of politics you might not know that just last week Trump was in Canada taking part in the G7 summit that had world leaders from Canada, France, Germany, Italy, Japan, the United Kingdom, and the United States come together and discuss solutions to various issues affecting each nation and impacting the world.
One groundbreaking decision that all the leaders came to was that a joint communique be created. This is a very tentative document of terms and agreements that each country promises to stand together on. In the current document, difficult decisions around Russia and international trade were made.
However, just after signing off on the agreement, Trump left the summit and reneged on the deal he made. Saying that Trudeau's statement made after the fact to the press promoted him to 'pull out' of the joint communique.
Based on Justin’s false statements at his news conference, and the fact that Canada is charging massive Tariffs to our U.S. farmers, workers and companies, I have instructed our U.S. Reps not to endorse the Communique as we look at Tariffs on automobiles flooding the U.S. Market!— Donald J.

PM Justin Trudeau of Canada acted so meek and mild during our @G7 meetings only to give a news conference after I left saying that, “US Tariffs were kind of insulting” and he “will not be pushed around.” Very dishonest & weak. Our Tariffs are in response to his of 270% on dairy!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) June 9, 2018
This has understandably pissed off the masses across the globe and has many Canadians clapping back to Trump in a variety of ways.
One of which is the re-emergence of this epic/ iconic video of Justin Trudeau back when he was an MP boxing with Conservative Senator Patrick Brazeau from 2012. The boxing match was set up as a charity event for cancer research and resulted in Trudeau winning the prize of cutting off his opponents long, luscious locks at Parliament and having Brazeau wear a hockey jersey with the Trudeau's party logo on it for a week.
The video was posted as a reminder to Trump that while Canada might be polite, that you definitely shouldn't underestimate us.
Something that Candian Reddit users sound off on - even if they aren't a fan of Justin Trudeau personally.
And while it's unlikely Trump and Trudeau will ever get in the ring together - we're sure he's shook by Trudeau's right hook.
