Part of the duty of being a world leader is maintaining peace with other nations. It’s a difficult job that often requires shaking hands with people who you disagree with and standing around for multiple photo-ops. However, NDP Leader Jagmeet Singh recently said that he hopes Donald Trump "gets impeached" before he ever has to meet the U.S president.\nIn a B.C. campaign event, the NDP leader revealed his feelings towards the President of the United States, saying "I hope he gets impeached before I get to speak to him."\nWhen Singh was questioned on what he would say to Trump if elected, he brought up his feelings towards to president, but also admitted, "I say that a little tongue-in-cheek."\nWhile it's no surprise that the American President is controversial, Singh has no issues sharing what he thinks about Trump.\nSingh continued to say that it is "disgusting that the president could inflame hatred against people and be so divisive."\n"It's horrible that someone in a position of power like him would allow for kids to be stripped from the arms of their parents, from their moms," he said. "That needs to be denounced."\nNDP leader @theJagmeetSingh at a town hall is asked what is the first thing he would say to President Trump if elected PM. Singh says he hopes President Trump is impeached before that #cdnpoli #elxn43— Mercedes Stephenson (@MercedesGlobal) September 27, 2019\nAsked NDP leader Jagmeet Singh if he was PM, what would be the 1st thing he’d say to Trump?”I hope he gets impeached before that happens.I say that tongue-in-cheek.But to be honest it’s disgusting that the president could inflame hatred against people, be so divisive.” #cndpoli pic.twitter.com/93gHXB3fq7— Ashley Burke (@AshleyBurkeCBC) September 27, 2019\nCanadians appeared divided over Singh’s jab at Trump. Some voters saw the move as reckless for the leader, while others applauded the NDP candidate for his stance against the president:\n"I agree with the notion but holy f**k," wrote one stunned Twitter user.\n"Sounds like a plan," wrote another user.\nMe too, me too— Amy di Nardò (@amybellabella) September 27, 2019\nTrump sucks but if Singh were a serious candidate for PM, this would be an outrageously irresponsible thing to say. Luckily for all of us, he is not a serious candidate for PM.— Angryark (@angryark99) September 27, 2019\nThat answer does not show leadership. You can think it, but he really shouldn’t say he hopes he’s impeached. He has to remember that he has to work with the US and you have to walk a pretty fine line in what you can say out loud! That’s also a very stupid question to ask him!— JudGar 🇨🇦 (@judgar64) September 27, 2019\nFor someone who aspires to be a leader and bring people together,preaching that Trump should be impeached is very dividing,and uncalled from a maybe leader... You just lost a vote— Bomba (@tousbomba) September 27, 2019\nDon't all reasonable people hope Trump will be impeached?— BillyMonaco (@BillyMonaco) September 27, 2019\nSingh has made it clear in the past that he has no problem with calling leaders out. The NDP candidate has attacked both Justin Trudeau and Andrew Scheer on their policies, statements, and what he sees as shortcomings.\nSingh famously went after Scheer over his remarks on gay marriage. “Andrew Scheer’s disgusting prejudice against LGBTQI2S+ people and families is very painful for many Canadians. This is exactly why, if Canadians deliver a minority government in October, I will not prop up Andrew Scheer and the Conservatives.”\nAndrew Scheer’s disgusting prejudice against LGBTQI2S+ people and families is very painful for many Canadians.
