Lets be clear, Donald Trump potentially becoming president is not a laughing matter for Canadians. I don’t want to see any pretentious jokes about the US election.
Beyond the horrors that would occur against Muslims, mexicans, black people, jewish people, in the USA…
It effects Canada directly. The USA is Canada’s largest trading partner. If Trump fucks up his economy, its going to fuck up Canada’s economy. Trump has also been very protectionist in his rhetoric, which will obviously hurt Canada’s trade.
The US is one of the largest emitters of Greenhouse gases. Trump plans to leave the Paris Climate Change accord and disinvest hundreds of millions to billions of dollars in funding for climate research and energy efficiency.
The earth is a connected system, and if Trump ends up pushing the world towards a runaway climate, its going to effect every single person on earth.
