Justin Trudeau won't pick a fight with Trump nor will support him


Toronto, Mar 8: Speaking about Republican presidential front-runner Donald Trump, Canadian prime minister Justin Trudeau has said that he does not want to pick a fight with Donald Trump now.

"I'm not going to pick a fight with Donald Trump right now. I'm not going to support him either, obviously," Trudeau said at a live forum hosted by The Huffington Post.

Trudeau steers clear of Trump's path

Speaking more about Trump, Trudeau said that many Americans are angry with their politics and seem to be acting out or lashing out.

Though he was being pushed to speak more on Trump, Trudeau kept his calm and said that he will be watching the presidential race 'very very closely,' and that his job as a prime minister is to work with the next US president on financial, cultural and social issues between US and Canada.

Meanwhile, he said that once the dust settles over the presidential elections, Americans must discuss about campaign financing. "When the dust settles after November, however it settles, a conversation about the role of campaign financing in establishing a successful democracy is, I think, going to be merited," he said.

While many people have said that they will move to Cape Breton in Canada if Trump is elected President, Trudeau joked about it and said: "Cape Breton is lovely all times of the year."

"We will work alongside our neighbours and allies regardless of the political choices they make," he said.
