Seb Gorka Calls Trudeau ‘Childish’ and Praises Peter Navarro’s ‘Special Place in Hell’ Comment

Ex-administration official Seb Gorka slammed Justin Trudeau today by calling his dispute with President Donald Trump “childish” and praising White House trade adviser Peter Navarro’s “special place in hell” slam against the Canadian prime minister.

“There’s a special place in hell for any foreign leader that engages in bad-faith diplomacy with President Donald J. Trump and then tries to stab him in the back on the way out the door,” Navarro said yesterday while on Fox News Sunday. “And that’s what bad-faith Justin Trudeau did with that stunt press conference.”

While the remark ginned up plenty of controversy in the last 24 hours, Gorka — a self-declared national security expert — agreed with this form of diplomacy.

“Very disappointing and childish and unprofessional behavior [from Trudeau],” Gorka said while on Fox & Friends on Monday. “If you want to treat your friends like friends that’s exactly what you do; you don’t make arrangements face-to-face and then, as soon as the individuals left the building, talk behind their back.”

He continued by saying Trudeau’s comments are “not what true friends do” and added “I think Peter Navarro’s commentary on Fox was spot-on.”

Current administration official Secretary of State Mike Pompeo this morning declined to voice similar agreement.d
