Trump Questions Render Canada Prime Minister Trudeau Speechless for 21 Seconds

  • Canada's Prime Minister Justin Trudeau speaks during a meeting in the House of Commons on Parliament Hill in Ottawa Ontario Canada

"It is a time to listen, it is a time to learn what injustices continue despite progress over years and decades", Trudeau said.

When asked if he would comment further on what's happening in the USA and in particular on Trump, the Canadian PM said: "My job as a Canadian prime minister is to stand up for Canadians, to stand up for our interests, to stand up for our values". "Black Canadians and racialized Canadians face discrimination as a lived reality every single day".

When pressed further to respond to Trump's threat to call in the military into deal with protesters, the prime minister said his focus was on Canadians, not United States domestic politics.

Mr Trudeau paused for 21 seconds when asked about US President Donald Trump and methods used to clear demonstrators for a photo opportunity.

In the same question Trudeau was also asked what message he is sending if he he didn't comment about Trump's actions.

The use of force in the USA capital comes after police have escalated protests across the U.S., sometimes turning violent toward unarmed and peaceful protesters.

Trudeau said anti-black racism and systemic discrimination are real and occur in Canada.

The protests have reached countries outside of North America, including Paris.

Chauvin has since been fired and has been charged with third-degree murder under Minnesota law.

Ontario Premier Doug Ford weighs in on the violent protests that have swept the United States after George Floyd died at the hands of law enforcement.

Canada in recent days has seen relatively small, peaceful protests in solidarity with USA demonstrations that first erupted last week in the wake of the death of George Floyd in police custody in Minneapolis, Minn. "The crowd was entirely peaceful", he posted on Twitter.

"We need to see that-not just as a government and take action-but we need to see that as Canadians".

The protests are in oppositon of police killings in the USA, particularly against African Americans. "The difference between the USA and Canada, for the most part, for the most part - we get along".

Protests have been ongoing for several days, and have reached many countries around the world.

This was all in reference to what happened in Washington a day earlier when protesters were moved from an area outside of the White House with tear gas so that the president could get through.

A police officer knelt on Floyd's neck for almost nine minutes while he pleaded that he couldn't breathe.
