WATCH: Poilievre Says China Doesn’t Take “Little Potato” Justin Trudeau Seriously

The facts back that up. Trudeau commands no respect.

In a press conference following the Trudeau Liberal cabinet shuffle, Conservative MP Pierre Poilievre slammed the Trudeau government on a wide range of issues.

Poilievre ripped into the finance minister, the infrastructure minister, the carbon tax, the decision to keep Seamus O’Regan in cabinet, and more.

He also reminded people that Trudeau had called China’s “basic dictatorship” his “most favoured jurisdiction in the world,” adding, “I’m not sure he still feels that way.”

Additionally, Poilievre said China has no respect for Trudeau:

“The Chinese leadership does not take him seriously, they call him ‘Little Potato,’ they have shown him complete disrespect, and this is consistent with his reputation all around the world.”

Poilievre’s remarks can be watched below:

As I recently wrote, Justin Trudeau’s weakness, and Canada’s lack of military strength, means nobody respects us:

“When it comes to ‘soft power,’ we are seeing how empty that talking point is as our nation is shown to command zero respect worldwide. And that’s due mostly to Justin Trudeau, who may have a disposition that’s good at getting media attention, but is dismissed as laughably weak on the world stage.”

It turns out that rolling over and being a supplicant to every country doesn’t do anything except invite challenge and contempt.

Canada needs toughness and strength from our leadership, and right now it’s totally absent.
