WHAT? Trudeau Blames Opposition For Budget Deficit

Justin Trudeau has gone off the deep end.

Perhaps his declining popularity ratings are starting to get to him, since he thinks he is above being questioned or challenged.

Whatever it is, his answers in a press conference today were totally absurd.

Despite having a majority government, Trudeau is blaming the Conservatives for his broken promises on the budget deficit.

In the press conference, Trudeau said, “If you tally up the promises we made [in our election platform], it was about $10 billion worth of new spending. In our first year, our first budget as we put forward, we committed to about $10 billion in new spending.”

“We just went from a floor where the budget was balanced, because supposedly the Conservatives had balanced the budget, to what was the reality of our budget of being at about $18 billion in deficit the end of that first year. So we’ve been consistent in our plan and our approach,” he added.

You won’t be surprised to hear that Trudeau is 100% wrong.

He is lying through his teeth.

As was reported in April of 2016, the Trudeau government was already claiming they were left with a deficit, despite having been left a $7.5 billion surplus by the Conservatives.

Now, Trudeau is once again trying to deceive the Canadian people. His refusal to take responsibility and his effort to pin the blame on others shows his lack of leadership ability and his total lack of integrity.

Trudeau is also blaming both the NDP and Conservatives for the failure of electoral reform. He told the press conference that “The NDP were anchored in proportional representation as being the only way forward… The Conservatives wanted the status quo no matter what, and the only way to break that logjam would have been to do a national referendum on electoral reform, which I definitely don’t think was in the best interest of Canadians.”

Again, Trudeau is lying.

He has a majority government. If he wanted to, he could have passed any kind of electoral reform his government wanted. Additionally, he has admitted himself that he decided to shut down the electoral reform discussion. So for him to try blaming the opposition now is crazy. Though he claims he “didn’t want to use his majority,” the truth is that he couldn’t force the NDP to agree with his personal electoral reform choice, so like a spoiled child who doesn’t get their way, he took the ball and went home.

Trudeau is once again showing that he has no interest in being a leader who works with others and unites Canadians. Instead, he is trying to tear our country apart for his own selfish electoral advantage.

It’s absolutely pathetic.
