Trump 'surprised' by Trudeau's racist blackface, brownface images

Trump 'surprised' by Trudeau's racist blackface, brownface images

He said it was taken on a costume day while he was working as guide for a river rafting company.

"I don't think it's hurt him as much as people would've expected because at this point in the election it seems his numbers, in the low-to-mid-30-per-cent range, are his partisan supporters and who support his vision and what he's done so far, so he's probably not going to lose them", said Jeram.

The first picture that emerged showed Trudeau with his face blackened at a 2001 "Arabian Nights" party when he was a 29-year-old teacher at a Vancouver private school.

Trudeau's campaign was upended when Time magazine on Wednesday published the image at the 2001 "Arabian Nights" party. Anything less than what the Liberals are promising is unacceptable, she said, "because no one should have to live through what I'm living through right now: the pain, the misery, the burden".

"I shouldn't have done it".

Singh said Saturday he's willing to talk to Trudeau but that he wants their conversation be private, and out of the media's glare. 'I am deeply deeply sorry'.

Trudeau, who in his new, unfamiliar defensive posture cited his own "layers of privilege", is in part a victim of his own success, for the worldwide approbation that he has experienced - especially in his contrast with President Trump and, more recently, British Prime Minister Boris Johnson - may seem pleasing overseas but is oftentimes displeasing at home.

That party was shopping its policy on expanding public coverage for drugs and dental care on the campaign trail Friday, while Conservative Leader Andrew Scheer was also campaigning on the health-care theme, pledging $1.5 billion to buy new medical imaging equipment for facilities across the country.

It has previously said that its earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization were positive for 2017 and 2018. As of 15 September 2019, hosts have earned more than $80bn sharing their homes and spaces on Airbnb , the company says .


Trudeau has promised to personally apologize to Singh, the first member of a visible minority to lead a federal party, after his re-election bid was shaken by the surfacing of images that showed he chose to put on black- or brownface as part of costume events. It shows him raising his hands in the air while laughing, sticking his tongue out and making faces.

He wears a T-shirt and jeans ripped at the knees as his face, arms and legs are covered in make-up.

As he ended a news conference Friday, Justin Trudeau moved up and down three rows of Toronto-area Liberal candidates - including his finance and foreign affairs ministers - and gave each politician a hug. Asked if there were other embarrassing episodes from his pre-politics past still to be revealed, he said he did not "recall" any. "Any Liberal scandal doesn't significantly increase Conservative support, but would go to the NDP or Greens", said Marc Di Gaspero, head of research for North America at Potloc.

And who are silent when Trudeau rejects a request from Parliament's ethics commissioner to waive confidentiality for government witnesses and documents, so he can do a full and complete investigation into Lavscam. Is that the real Mr Trudeau?

US President Donald Trump today hit out at the images.

"I was hoping I wouldn't be asked that question..."

"When I saw the images, I was surprised and yet, I understood that the prime minister was taking responsibility for his actions", Hehr told Postmedia. 'I just don't know what to tell you.
