Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau’s Liberal Party won enough seats Monday night to secure him a second four-year term following a contentious election cycle. However, he lost his majority government and will lead a minority in Parliament instead.
President Donald Trump was quick to congratulate Trudeau on Twitter for his “wonderful and hard-fought victory.”
“Canada is well served,” Trump said. “I look forward to working with you toward the betterment of both of our countries!”
The source of Trudeau’s drop this election could be that his image as the face of a liberal Canada that embraces all was tarnished shortly after the election campaign began in September when the first of three instances of the son of the former late Prime Minister Pierre Elliott Trudeau in brownface surfaced.
