Comey tweets 'this too shall pass' in apparent jab at Trump

After President Trump called Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau “very dishonest and weak” on Saturday, former FBI director James Comey took to Twitter and posted a comment.

“Our national security relationship with Canada is vital and saves American lives. It was built over generations and is bigger than any person or dispute. This too shall pass,” Comey wrote.

As the New York Times notes, Trump “upended two days of global economic diplomacy late Saturday,” refused to sign a joint statement at the G-7, and threatened to “escalate his trade war on the country’s neighbors.”

“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!” Trump wrote in one of the tweets.

Comey, who was fired by Trump in May of last year, wasn’t the only one to speak out on the G-7 developments.

Senator John McCain also took to Twitter and wrote, “To our allies: bipartisan majorities of Americans remain pro-free trade, pro-globalization & supportive of alliances based on 70 years of shared values. Americans stand with you, even if our president doesn’t.”
