Prime Minister Justin Trudeau said comments made at a rally for U.S. President Donald Trump on Wednesday — including the crowd chanting “send her back” — were “hurtful, wrong and completely unacceptable.”

“I want everyone in Canada to know that those comments are completely unacceptable and should not be allowed, encouraged in Canada,” he told reporters Thursday.

Trudeau was holding a joint news conference with European Council President Donald Tusk, who is in Canada along with European Commission President Jean-Claude Juncker for a summit on trade.

Tusk also weighed in on the comments, quipping that he’s happy that while he’s been in Montreal, no one has shouted: “send him back.”
