Prime Minister Trudeau critical of President Trump’s comments; Parliamentary committee examining Desjardins breach
Prime Minister Trudeau denounces comments made by U.S. President Trump
Prime Minister Justin Trudeau is making it clear he has very different views about Canadians from diverse backgrounds than U.S. President Donald Trump.
He commented Monday about Trump’s weekend tweet that four female members of Congress who are of colour should go back to where they came from, despite three of the four being born in America. Trudeau told reporters, “That is not how we do things in Canada,” adding “A Canadian is a Canadian is a Canadian.”
