Obama Backs Canada’s Trudeau Amid Racial Firestorm

Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau has seen his campaign for re-election hit by a blackface controversy, but the United States’ first black president is throwing his support behind the progressive leader.

Former President Barack Obama tweeted Wednesday:

“I was proud to work with Justin Trudeau as President. He’s a hard-working, effective leader who takes on big issues like climate change. The world needs his progressive leadership now, and I hope our neighbors to the north support him for another term.”

Evidence has surfaced Trudeau has worn blackface costumes in the past, which has hit a campaign already under scrutiny for alleged efforts to pressure officials to drop charges against a Quebec company, according to The Hill.

Canada’s Conservative Party candidate Andrew Scheer has closed in amid a tight race, which will be decided at the polls early next week. Trudeau needs to hold 170 of 338 of Parliament’s House of Commons seats to keep his majority.

  1. So Obama was proud to work with Trudeau when he was President. News Flash Mr. Legacy, you are no longer President. Who cares that you back Trudeau. You say that Trudeau took on big issues like Climate Change. You were a Disaster as a President and only a Liberal can stomach you. Go Away Nobama your as AMERICAN as ISIS. Good riddance.
