The Canadian Politician – World leaders including Prime Minister Justin Trudeau have condemned the recent tweets of President Donald Trump, dismissing them as racist. The tweets that asked four U.S. Congresswomen, all women of colour to return to their countries of origin have been widely seen as demeaning and unbefitting communication expected of the president. All but one of the women were born in the United States. Rep. Omar (D-Minnesota) was born in Somalia and immigrated to the U.S. in 1992 as a refugee. Trump accused the women of not loving the United States and saying hateful and hurtful statements against Israel, making the Jewish state feeling abandoned by its greatest ally, the United States.
Trudeau issued a statement while visiting with the Secretary-General of NATO, Jen Stoltenberg. “I think Canadians and indeed people around the world know exactly what I think about those particular comments. That is not how we do things in Canada. A Canadian is a Canadian is a Canadian. The diversity of our country is actually one of our greatest strengths and a source of tremendous resilience and pride for Canadians and we will to continue to defend that,” Trudeau said.
