Why did Obama endorse Trudeau for prime minister of Canada? He did not even endorse his own former vice-president, Joe Biden, for president of the U.S. Is this not mingling in Canadian politics? The democrats, Obama’s political party, have been blaming Russian collusion for Trump’s win in 2016. Maybe we can blame Obama for Trudeau winning this election.
We don’t know how many more votes because of this helped Trudeau win, and we will never know, but we know that a lot of Canadians like Obama and think he was a good president. In 2012 about 65 per cent of Canadians said they would vote for Obama, and Obama knows that, too, so why not help and give a little push to turn the voters to the left?
There are always the undecided voters that need a little bit of help who to vote for, and in my opinion this can have made a difference for the Liberals with Obama’s help. This is not normal.
