Impact of Trump’s diagnosis on the U.S. pandemic response? Trudeau was asked if he thought the president’s positive test could lead the Trump administration to take the pandemic’s threat more seriously.
“Obviously, there is an election going on in the United States where stances or approaches on Covid-19 have been a polarized political issue,” Trudeau said. “In Canada, we’ve been extremely lucky that it has not, that there has been a concerted effort across orders of government, across political parties to work together, to be there for Canadians and to get this virus under control. We’re certainly going to continue with that in Canada and we recommend it as a path for people around the world.”
