President Trump has a message for the Canadian truckers: ‘We are with them all the way!’

At President Trump’s Save America rally last weekend in Conroe, Texas, he had a message for Canadian truckers who are protesting the mandated Covid-19 vaccine.

“The Canadian truckers, you’ve been reading about it, who are resisting, bravely, these lawless mandates and are doing more to defend American freedom than our own leaders by far,” President Trump began.

“And we want those great Canadian truckers to know that we are with them all the way!” he said to a cheering audience.

Last weekend, demonstrators took to Parliament Hill in Canada to protest vaccine mandates required for most Canadians, even though temperatures were supposed to be frigid. According to New York Post, the protests remained peaceful at the location, although the state run media reported that there were many angry people and that police were prepared for violence to break out – though it never did.

Justin Trudeau, the Canadian prime minister, who began an isolation period last weekend after his son tested positive for Covid-19, fled the residence to avoid the protestors.

Despite Trudeau’s avoidance of the issue, the people seem to be on the truckers’ side. Recently, a GoFundMe page raised $9 million to aid the Canadian truckers who are taking time off work to protest.

According to the New York Post, conservative leader Eric O’Toole said that he would not be attending, “It’s not for the leader of the opposition or political party to attend a protest on the Hill or a convoy,” he said. He added, “the thousands of people coming here in the next few days, the trucker convoy, is a symbol of the fatigue in our country right now.”
