Trudeau criticizes Trump and ‘divisive, fearful rhetoric’ of anti-globalization forces as leaders

gather for G20.

Prime Minister Justin Trudeau used his first appearance at the meetings around this year’s G20 summit Saturday to criticize the anti-globalization sentiment on the rise in places like the United States and United Kingdom.

During a B20 event Saturday — a gathering of business associations from G20 economies — that also featured the presidents of South Africa and Argentina, Trudeau advocated for international trade, openness and pushed the theme of “inclusive growth” for the middle class.

In what seemed an overt reference to U.S. presidential candidate Donald Trump, he said “building walls” is not an avenue for growth.

Trudeau also cautioned against the protectionism that fuelled in part the United Kingdom’s decision to leave the European Union.

Let's hope that Trudeau, Canada and the rest of the world don't have to figure out how to survive a President Trump.

1. That's a bit of a stretch...

 



"Building walls" is a fairly common metaphor for isolationist policy. He's against that and not piling on the Donald. That reporter sounds like an American.

2. I hope world leaders continue to speak out.

Yes "building walls" is a metaphor but I doubt it's a coincidence that he used the term.

“It’s tempting to fall into divisive, fearful rhetoric,” Trudeau told a room of businesspeople at a venue in Hangzhou.

Who is using "divisive, fearful rhetoric?" The answer begins with a T.
