donald trump president

These American celebrities bailed on plans to move to Canada after Donald Trump's inauguration as U.S. president.
Canada has sent a powerful message that reverberates across all factions: Canada stands with Muslims. This is what M-103 accomplishes. And this is the kind of religious tolerance and inclusiveness that make Canada a model for diversity around the world.
How can you -- a regular person who isn't all that involved in politics, and who lives in another country, no less -- oppose the unethical, immoral, hateful policies of the Trump regime?
The high level of cooperation between Canada and the United States over many decades has deeply intertwined our two countries and preserving Canada's long-held partnership with the United States will no doubt be at the top of Prime Minister Trudeau's to-do list in Washington. But he must be clear in sharing the message that mutual observance and commitment to upholding human rights must be at the very centre of the special bond between Canada and the United States. Worryingly, President Trump has so far given much reason to believe that regard for human rights is not high on his own to-do list.
Canada is a better place to live and a freer and more equitable society because of the long history of oppressed communities coming together and saying a better world is possible, and fighting to make it happen -- not just for themselves, but for the entire community and in solidarity with other oppressed groups.
The G-Zero world that political scientists like Ian Bremmer have long warned about, is now here. This world, quite simply, lacks any real, defined global leadership. America has lost its international credibility. The economic rise of China, along with the apparent military resurgence of Russia, means that there will be new contenders for international control.
He falsely claimed up to 1.5 million people attended his inauguration.
A national survey of a cross-section of 1,500 voting-age Americans, conducted by the Angus Reid Institute in the days leading up to the inauguration, reveals a strong attachment to Canada among the U.S. public, while Americans hold a decidedly different attitude toward their country's other neighbour, Mexico.
What will the world look like in 2030? Will liberal democracy still exist? We have recently come to a crossroads where this question is entirely valid. I believe I speak for many people when I say that recent exercises in democracy have left me puzzled. I am disappointed that the United States now has a President Trump.
At noon this Friday, what was once thought impossible is scheduled to happen -- Donald Trump will be sworn in as the 45th president of the United States. We are entering a period of unprecedented instability brought on by a Commander in Chief in the United States who seems to make policy through middle-of-the-night tweets and headline-grabbing interviews with select media.
