Wouldn’t it be nice if Canadian prime minister Justin Trudeau was American instead of Canadian and could be our next president?
Think about it: According to LA Trudeau is a self-described feminist, believes in full equality for all–LGBT, Muslim, Hispanic, the marginalized–doesn’t send out moronic tweets at 3 in the morning, and has never wondered out loud what good nuclear weapons are if you can’t use them.
Though we cannot have Trudeau as president, he did throw some big league shade at Donald Trump during a town hall in Belleville, Ontario, commenting:
“Canada is a separate country from the United States and there are things that we hold dear that the Americans haven’t prioritized. I’m never going to shy away from standing up for what I believe in, whether it’s proclaiming loudly to the world that I am a feminist, whether it’s understanding that immigration is a source of strength for us and Muslim Canadians are an essential part of the success of our country today and into the future.”
Trudeau also had a message for Trump regarding economic and trade policy:
“We’re going to make sure that we are fighting for Canadian jobs, Canadian economic growth, for opportunities for Canadians as it regards both our relations with the United States and indeed with the world.”
