#ThanksCanada trending on Twitter after Trump’s attack on Trudeau

Jun 11 2018, 5:17 pm

Americans are taking time to say thanks to Canada following US President Donald Trump’s latest Twitter attack on Prime Minister Justin Trudeau.

Our neighbours down south are using Twitter in a positive way (contrary to their President) to let Canadians know they are appreciated with the hashtag #ThanksCanada.

Following Trump’s visit to Canada for the G7 Summit, the President took to Twitter to call Trudeau “very dishonest and weak” in regards to the current trade and tariffs battle between the US and Canada.

And Trump didn’t stop there as his rant continued on Sunday.

Trump’s comments about our PM seem to have backfired as high-level politicians around the world are standing up for Trudeau.

And now it looks like Americans are siding with Canada too. American music writer David Wild began the #ThankCanada/ #ThanksCanada social media movement with this tweet:

 

And the love is spreading. Americans are thanking Canada for our healthcare system, maple syrup, Drake, Neil Young, The Tragically Hip, hockey, and of course, our kindness. Check out some of the tweets below:

Yup, we’re pretty great.
