That may be true, but the context in which Trump used that reference is astonishingly idiotic. Trump imposed tariff sanctions on Steel and Aluminum just like on the EU with the sorry excuse that it's because of national security, which means Canada and EU steel is a threat to the US national security. When Trudeau asked Trump, why do you consider Canada a threat to the national security of the US, basically labeling Canada to be an enemy, Trump retorted that it's because Canadians burned the White House in 1812.

There is not much you can respond to this idiocy without labeling the POTUS with some chosen qualifiers, so Trudeau didn't really had anything else to say.
throughout my life, my two greatest assets have been mental stability and being, like, really smart.
