Some Americans celebrating the long weekend in Niagara Falls say it's the right move by Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, adding that Trump's tariffs on Canada were uncalled for in the first place. "Everybody said, 'Uh, can we get on to another subject?"'

After that meeting, Trump tweeted that Trudeau was "weak" and "dishonest".
