Canadian PM Justin Trudeau Weighs In On Trump And Divisive Politics

"Canadians find it hard to sustain anger and fear for very long," Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau said Friday.

"We know and generally like our neighbors. I meant that within Canada, but it applies to the United States, too. And having an approach that really emphasizes that whenever you grab any disparate group of people together, you realize that the things that unite us are far greater than the things that divide us.

"And I think that, ultimately, is what democracies keep moving steadily towards. So I have confidence in the American electorate and look forward to working with whoever you elect come November."
