CBS’ 60 Minutes television show tonight features Prime Minister Justin Trudeau. A partial transcript of what Trudeau has to say was released by the Associated Press. When asked what Canadians don’t like about the U.S. our Prime Minister replied with: “Having a little more awareness of what’s going on in the rest of the world, I think is, is what many Canadians would hope for from Americans.” He also seemed to take a jab at an unnamed U.S. presidential candidate whose rise he attributed to Americans’ lack of knowledge of foreign affairs.” “A spokeswoman for Trudeau said she didn’t immediately know what candidate Trudeau was referring to.”
In 2001 Justin Trudeau said “I don’t read the newspapers. I don’t watch the news. If something important happens, someone will tell me.” (John Robson. Toronto Sun column, August, 2013)
Is Justin Trudeau out of line regarding his 60 Minutes complaint about Americans lack of awareness of what’s happening in the rest of the world, particularly given his 2001 quote?
