Donald Trump Endorses Canadian Truckers While Justin Trudeau Hides From Them

Written By Wyatt Claypool, Posted on January 30, 2022

Former President Donald Trump at a rally in Texas, gearing up for the 2022 midterm election season, gave a shoutout to Canadian truckers participating in the Freedom Convoy 2022 that has garnered international attention and inspired several other convoys abroad. 

Trump endorsed the truckers “resisting, bravely, these lawless mandates,” before saying that the truckers, “are doing more to defend American freedom than our own leaders by far,” in reference to President Joe Biden and the Congressional Democrats. 

Trump’s sounding off in favour of the Canadian truckers and the convoy is in stark contrast to Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau who at first attempted to ignore for several days the convoy headed to Ottawa before smearing them as a “small fringe minority” during a press conference.

After that optics disaster where Trudeau looked both out-of-touch and callous, he then claimed he needed to self-isolate because he was “exposed to COVID-19.” Trudeau did this despite admitting to testing negative for COVID-19 and being double-vaccinated and boosted. 

Since making this announcement on Twitter, Trudeau has been in an unknown location.

Although it was not a shock that someone like Trump would support the truckers it has been surprising just how much international attention the Canadian truckers have gotten.

Maybe it will be helpful for some Canadians who are on the fence between supporting vaccine mandates and believing people should be left to make their own decisions to see just how many people abroad see mandates as unreasonable and authoritarian.

Not everyone needs to be against mandates to end them, just enough that it puts at risk the political careers of Justin Trudeau and Premies like Doug Ford and Jason Kenney.
