Seth Meyers Can't Believe Donald Trump Is Picking A Fight With Canada

"Canada's been rough on us? Come on."

Seth Meyers can't believe U.S. President Donald Trump has been trying to pick a fight with Canada.

The "Late Night" host poked fun at Trump's ongoing trade dispute with Canada over softwood lumber on Thursday, referencing the president's comments about Canadians potentially not being as nice as they seem.

"Everyone thinks of Canada as being wonderful," Trump said.

"And so do I, I love Canada. But they've outsmarted our politicians for many years."

But Meyers mocked the U.S. president for saying The Great White North had been "rough" on its southern neighbour.

"Canada's been rough on us?" Meyers asked.

"Come on. The worst thing Canada's ever done is try to pass off ham as bacon."

Meyers continued, pointing out that the worst thing the U.S. ever did to Canada happened last year, when American NHL teams edged out all of their Canadian rivals to make the Stanley Cup playoffs (ignoring the fact that many of the teams' best players are Canadian, but we digress).

"It's like all the jokes we made before the election are starting to come true: 'Oh, if we elect Trump, we're going to end up fighting with Canada,'" he quipped.
