6 Times Doug Ford Has Supported & Mirrored Trump Throughout The Years

"Full disclosure: I’m a big Republican."

As the premier of Ontario, it's not surprising that Doug Ford has had some contact with the President of the United States. 

However, it turns out that Ford has actually supported Donald Trump throughout the years. 

Doug has mentioned in the past that he respects Trump and "loved" listening to some of his speeches. 

Despite the love that the premier has thrown Trump's way, it's also important to remember that there have been some feuds. 

The pair's respect for each other began to crack after Ford discovered the president had stopped a huge shipment of PPE equipment during Ontario’s first wave of COVID-19.

"I’m not going to rely on President Trump, or any prime minister or president of any other country again," the premier said at the time.
