Over the last week, Donald Trump has decided to pick a fight with another foreign country, this time setting his sights on Canada. In the aftermath, many are wondering what Trump's motive is to push back against the Great White North, with Stephen Colbert making sure to give his opinion on the issue at hand.

Trump on Canada

During the 2016 presidential election, Donald Trump used a lot of talking points to sell himself to the American people, and was able to ride that momentum to a Repubican primary victory and a general election win over Hillary Clinton last November.

One of those talking points was his tough stance on trade. While the former host of "The Apprentice" usually focused on China while discussing future trade deals with the United State, recently Trump's gone after a surprising target. On Monday night, the president met with a group of conservative news outlets and informed them that he would place a 20 percent tariff on softwood lumber and other goods coming from Canada. Trump went on to explain that Canada had been "really rough" on the United States when it comes to trade, and that he refused to be "taken advantage" of as commander in chief. On Tuesday morning, Trump doubled down on Twitter, writing that Canada has been "very difficult" for farmers in the U.S., while adding, "We will not stand for this." The reaction has been split down party lines, but was highlighted during the April 25 edition of "The Late Show with Stephen Colbert" on CBS.

Kicking off his show with an opening monologue, which was posted earlier on Twitter, Stephen Colbert trolled Donald Trump over his new feud with Canada.

"Everyday tensions are rising between the United States and our sworn enemy Canada," Colbert said with sarcasm, before mockingly labeling the country "cold Mexico" and the "Great White North Korea."

Stephen Colbert then continued to mock Donald Trump for meeting with only conservative news outlets, which he referred to as "his version of comic con." "As far as I know, this is the first time that anyone has rejected Justin Trudeau's wood," he continued, to the laughter of the audience.

Canada's response

Following the announcement from Donald Trump, Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau pushed back following a phone call with the president, saying that the executive order would be bad for both countries. "You cannot thicken this border without hurting people on both sides of it," Trudeau said. before noting, "Any two countries are going to have issues that will be irritants to the relationship." Despite Canada's response, the White House referred to the conversation as "amicable."
