Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau hinted on Thursday that the United States and Trump administration, specifically, could be partially responsible for the crashed Ukrainian plane that U.S. officials reportedly suspect an Iranian missile took down.
During the press conference, Trudeau was asked by a reporter “do you feel that the U.S. is partly responsible given that they created the situation in which the missiles were launched?”
His response was typical in it's avoidance of an actual answer. “I think that’s one of the many questions that people will be thinking about and trying to find answers to,” Trudeau responded, refusing to rule out U.S. culpability.

Not to be outdone by our close “allies” up north, Democrats at home were quick to blame Trump for putting a plane in front of Iran's missile too:
