President Donald Trump and Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau agreed to shut the U.S.-Canada border to all but essential traffic and trade last week, to contain the coronavirus spread. Now President Trump wants to station U.S. troops on the Canadian border, to ensure no one tries to illegally cross into America.
Trudeau confirmed the report Thursday, Canada’s Global News reports, and apparently does not support the plan.
“Canada and the United States have the longest un-militarized border in the world and it is very much in both of our interests for it to remain that way,” Trudeau said, “while giving his daily briefing to reporters.”
Canadians and some Americans are having a field day mocking the U.S., which does not have universal health care and has a far greater number of COVID-19 cases than our friends to the north.
You really think Canadians will flee their healthcare and a Prime Minister w/ policies that favour science for a right-wing koolaid-drinking whack job country w/ the fastest growth of #COVID19 cases in the world?!? https://t.co/AfkgVUo0Xb #NOPE #NOTMYPRESIDENT #USA #cdnpoli

Trust me: no one from Canada or Mexico wants to come here now. Unless he’s looking to block Americans from escaping. https://t.co/HjvtmHyQuN

If things weren’t so grim, the idea that Trump needs to prevent Canadians from sneaking into the US would be laughable. Right now, this side of the border is looking pretty good. https://t.co/pvP8sv1i9k

We have more cases than them. If anyone would put guards at the border, it’s Canadians! https://t.co/1qjBFouRtL

Why is trump proposing sending troops to 🇨🇦 border when 20,000 people crossed INTO Canada from US in 2018?
It’s Canada that will require protection from the US soon, given its catastrophic response to COVID19. https://t.co/qiG8c8eUG4

Donald Trump deploying troops to the Canadian border to prevent COVID-19 carriers from infiltrating the United States would likely benefit Canada – by stopping an actual threat, namely infected Americans moving north. https://t.co/GMdaYc01zw #COVIDCanada #covid19Canada #cdnpoli

That’s quite funny the states wants to put military troops to the US and Canadian Border.
Do it, the US has so many cases it’s out of control. Close our borders that’s fine.
If it stops the spread.

Let me get this straight. So the US is wanting to put soldiers at the border so Canadians, with our far lower infection rate per capita and universal healthcare won’t try to get across?
No worries, guys. I think you’re safe.

Yes, let’s put soldiers on the border to stand guard against, checks notes, Canada? We could put soldiers to work delivering groceries or working in the hospitals but noooooo.@realDonaldTrump is the original #COVIDIDIOT.#TheResistancehttps://t.co/i8NF5g2ShQ

Breaking: Canadians lined up at the border to flee their free healthcare, civil society and functional leadership for the kill or be killed, dystopian nightmare the US is quickly becoming. Also no one listens to the‘Tragically Hip’ here which might have been our undoing.

NO Canadian with intellect will WANT to cross the border right now. I love my US friends/players etc… BUT NOW is not the time esp. with #45’s inaction and money first thinking. Waste of your resources Cheeto butt. https://t.co/2UEmwH2T8i

America’s doctors and nurses: HELP! We are desperate! We need masks, ventilators, gowns, gloves, beds.
Donald Trump: I hear you. I’m sending troops to the Canadian border.

Former acting CIA director explains why Trump’s inaction on Russian bounty scandal will make things worse
It was revealed nearly two weeks ago that the Russian government is paying a bounty to the Taliban for killing American soldiers.
Since then, President Donald Trump has denied that he and his administration didn't know anything about it. Then he claimed it was a hoax. Now it has become clear that the stories are not only true but that if Trump read his presidential daily briefing in 2019, he would have been aware of the problem.
Speaking to the House Thursday, Trump's former acting CIA director Michael Morell explained that things are being made far worse by the president's denial.

Trump tells Fox News the ‘Black Lives Matter’ sign on Fifth Avenue is like he’s being ‘prosecuted’
President Donald Trump appeared to reveal another quid pro quo during an interview with Fox News host Sean Hannity.
MSNBC's Lawrence O'Donnell pointed it out during an interview with Sen. Kamala Harris (D-CA).
"I was very nice to Mayor de Blasio. I got him ventilators when he needed them... I got him the gowns. I got him the masks. I got him everything. Then he throws a big Black Lives Matter sign right down in the middle of Fifth Avenue. I was so good to him and to Gov. Cuomo, like nobody's ever been good. And then all you end up doing out of that place is getting prosecuted."
