Letter: Spat with Canada doesn't show leadership

Like most Canadians , I was appalled at the childish behavior your president displayed this past weekend in making a personal attack on Prime Minister Trudeau. Our countries have differences (few compared to the matters on which we agree) but to make personal attacks on a leader of a country that shares the important values of the USA is, historically speaking, unknown.

In plain terms, President Trump can be characterized as a bully. While cozying up to known enemy, North Korea, he lambasts a long-standing friend. It's not a show of leadership. I am personally disgusted.
