Canadian ambassador to the US Kirsten Hillman revealed that she has talked with the US administration after the comments of top Trump adviser Peter Navarro about Canada’s troops.
Kirsten said that the Canadian forces are highly respected by the US and Americans. Talking to CTV she said that she had a conversation with the US administration about the comments made by Navarro.
Navarro, who works as the director of the Office of Trade and Manufacturing Policy for U.S. Trump said that his comments were taken in the wrong direction.
Navarro’s comment has sparked anger in Canada. He earlier said in an interview: “Every time that a Canadian shows up in a uniform, it’s doing us a favor? How’s that work?”
Kirsten Hillman was chosen as the ambassador of Canada in the US on March 26, 2020. Kirsten is the first woman to serve in this role.
Canada’s Prime Minister Justin Trudeau has appointed her as ambassador to the US in March.
