Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau’s reelection campaign hurt by blackface scandal

OAN NewsroomUPDATED 1:37 PM PT — Monday, September 23, 2019
Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau is struggling to regain his footing after his blackface scandal. A recent report cited polling conducted over the weekend, which has the liberal party falling behind conservative challengers in the upcoming election.
The third photo of the prime minister in blackface surfaced last week when he was leading in the polls by two-points — a lead which has now disappeared. This comes as Trudeau has been unwilling to confirm that there are no other photos of him in blackface.
“I have been forthright about the incidents that I remember,” he stated. “As was pointed out, I hadn’t remembered the incident in the rafting company I was working for, and that’s why I am wary about being definitive.”

The Canadian prime minister has gone on to apologize to minority Canadians, saying he did not realize how badly these incidents had hurt them. According to recent polls, the Trudeau has to make up at least four-points by the October 21st election.
