US Ambassador to Canada addresses concerns over Trump indictment and political turmoil
David Cohen, the US ambassador to Canada, doesn't seem too worried about the indictment of former President Donald Trump affecting his job. But that's not to say that US politics aren't stirring up some commotion in Canada.
In conversation with Ian Bremmer on GZERO World, Cohen was questioned on how a potential Trump comeback could impact Canada, as well as the extent to which the US is exporting its political turmoil.
Canadian Ambassador to the US, Kirsten Hillman, chimed in, acknowledging that Canada has historically been sensitive to US politics.
With an appetite for American media, Canadians are not immune to the ripple effects of political unrest south of the border. The two ambassadors agreed on one thing: political polarization is a menacing global issue that poses a significant threat to democracy.
