2024 is not just another year on the calendar – it’s the year the United States gets ready to pick its 47th President. This isn’t just an American shindig; it’s a global phenomenon that’s about to set the world stage on fire.
The outcome will not only determine the next tenant of the White House but will also affect everything from US-Europe relations to the way your aunt makes her famous meatloaf. It’s that big.
Meanwhile, just a hop, and skip away, in the friendly neighborhood, Canada, Ottawa is apparently in full-blown panic mode. They’re like that person who starts planning for a party that hasn’t even been announced yet.
Rumor has it that Canada’s leaders are already whispering about “game plans” for dealing with the US election results. But here’s the twist: they’re preparing for an *authoritarian leader* to show up on the US scene.
Melanie Joly, Canada’s Foreign Minister, has practically spilled the tea. She’s talking about preparing for a “difficult situation.” in case an authoritarian leader is elected. What’s even more intriguing is that she’s talking about working with everyone – from mayors to business moguls to folks who have businesses in the USA.
It’s almost as if Ottawa is gearing up for a zombie apocalypse, except the zombies are some fed-up Americans. So, who is this authoritarian leader that Canada seems to know is about to storm into the US political arena? Is it someone who is known by JT? You’re not far off. It’s none other than the master of Donald Trump!
Trump has been hovering in the background, gaining popularity like a comeback rock star. With a Republican approval rating that’s skyrocketing at 68%, Trump is Sureshot having a chance to be the 47th.
Trudeau’s Trump fear
Picture this: if Trump makes a triumphant return to the White House, get ready for the sequel to the Trudeau-Trump showdown.
If one remembers, the Trudeau-Trump relationship was like mixing oil with water – it just didn’t work.
From climate change debates that were hotter than a jalapeño pepper to trade disagreements that felt more intense than a sibling rivalry, these two had a bond that was equal parts camaraderie and contention.
Flashback to Trudeau’s trip to New York – he didn’t mention Trump’s name, but he took more jabs at him over his hardline policies and statements against liberal values. Let’s not forget the blame game Trudeau played, pointing fingers at Trump for the storming of the US Capitol.
So, yes he knows that Trump is the one who could be the 47th. But Trudeau, don’t sweat it for too long. Hang tight because you are anyway going to lose.
Pierre Poilievre might just swoop in 2025. And who knows, with him in charge, maybe the next US President will be penning “BFF” notes to Canada instead of firing off midnight tweets.
So, brace yourselves, world – 2024 is here, and it’s going to be a roller coaster ride of political spectacle. The world won’t be the same after the elections for sure.
