After a recent endorsement by Barack Obama, Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau won his re-election.
What We Know:
- His Liberal Party held on to around 150 seats in Parliament but didn’t receive a majority. Canada’s Conservative Party is projected to receive the majority vote and 120 seats in Parliament, according to the Daily Wire. Unexpectedly, Quebec’s Separatist Party also received 20 more seats.
- Trudeau was not happy with the way his party performed and went on to claim “Canda rejected division and negativity … and they rejected cuts and austerity and voted in favour of a progressive agenda and strong action on climate change.”
- This win comes after the recent controversy over Trudeau wearing blackface in the past. The win also led to him being mocked over Twitter.
Jussie Trudeau is now a real minority — and he doesn’t have to wear blackface! https://t.co/u7Zkx1J8Jd
