President Trump incorrectly accused Canada of burning down the White House during combative call with Prime Minister Justin Trudeau

President Trump incorrectly accused Canada of burning down the White House while on a combative phone call with Prime Minister Justin Trudeau last month, according to a report.

History is not the Trump administration’s strongest subject.

Trump’s erroneous historical jab, which seemingly referred to British troops’ torching of the White House during the War of 1812, came after Trudeau pressed him on how he could justify slapping steel and aluminum sanctions on Canada in the name of “national security,” several people familiar with the matter told CNN.

“Didn’t you guys burn down the White House?” Trump fired back, according to the sources.

British troops burned down the White House in retaliation for American soldiers attacking the then English colony of York, Canada during the 1812 conflict.
