Canadian province leader 'infuriated' Trump blocking medical exports despite 9/11 help

Source: The Hill

Canadian leaders are criticizing President Trump’s ban on exports of N95 masks to the neighboring country.

One province leader said he’s “infuriated” with the decision, especially in light of Canada’s assistance to the U.S. in 2001 by sheltering stranded U.S. passengers after the 9/11 attacks.

“To say that I’m infuriated by the recent actions of President Trump of the United States is an understatement,” Newfoundland Premier Dwight Ball told The Associated Press. “I cannot believe for a second that in a time of crisis that President Trump would even think about banning key medical supplies to Canada.”

...

Ball noted that Canada helped cater to the more than 6,600 passengers in 2001 that descended on the 10,000-person town of Gander in Newfoundland.

1. How much longer

Do we as a nation have to suffer under this imbecile? Our chump in chief is ruining any and all good will towards us as a nation AND he's literally KILLING us!!!

The GOP must die for the good of the country. They have proven themselves to be traitors as well as petty grifters and thieves.

2. He's not proactive.

He created this problem for himself by allowing our facemask supplies to disappear in a three month period. He has no other option but to piss off everyone else, just to supply our medical and health workers.

This is what happens when Republicans lead.

5. Dear Newfoundland Premier Dwight Ball we the 65 million have been infuriated since 2016

and whats really galling is that the US Senate of 52 assholes did nothing, he is still has the moniker of being IMPEACHED, because there libertarian caucus told the public and the world that he learned his lesson................ ....................... and now this asshole is just what he is, a complete asshole trying to inflate his ego to more selfishness, he is not your friend, in fact he wants to use the population of the country as big experiment for a drug, like we are lab rats and mice, because he was told by his grifter son n law who should be in jail, a fucked up economists who should be in jail, and a former mayor, who should be in jail, that the drug works, because they said so....................... .............., and he and that team of assholes wants to make buck off those masks, he, and those other assholes don't give a shit about you or us, so welcome aboard and I am sorry, from this american..........................

8. Thank you!

But our Prime Minister and his Cabinet have to tread a very fine line in dealing with the Covidiot. So far, they have been extremely diplomatic, and they know that public criticism is the one thing he cannot bear, and he WILL strike back. That's what happens when you're dealing with one who has no conscience.

By the way, it wasn't just Gander, Nfld that cared for all those folks. Every major airport in Canada allowed planes bound for the US to land on 9/11. And Bush didn't even have the decency to publicly thank my country.

9. I just hate it that the greedy, crazy idiots are in charge again at a time when the whole world

just does not need any of this aggro from the US. It pains me that our country is such a bad neighbor. We love you guys, we really appreciate what a great neighbor Canada is and all of the lovely things you have done for us when we needed it. We should be repaying those favors now, or at least behaving ourselves, and it just isn't working out that way. I hope we can all hang in there until we get things back to a better footing.

7. I am so sorry for one who, to Canada, is an ungrateful, bad neighbor. To me he is the devil.

Canada should add its name to the attempted filing of a "crimes against humanity" charge at The Hague.

10. The trouble is that it's hard to fuck over your leader...

... without fucking over the innocent citizens of his country.

If we could find a way, I'm sure we'd do it... while apologizing, of course.

12. I'm Not Sure

I cannot condemn him for this one thing. We are in dire straits with the N95s (if we aren't I will change my thinking) and this is in no way analogous to 9/11. It's not a clearly right or clearly wrong situation to me. Ship out some scarce resources to others in need, don't ship out scare resources so that we can take care of our own need. I wouldn't call it greedy to keep them for ourselves based on need, because then you're in the same boat as Trump calling Cuomo a whiner because he wants the world's supply of ventilators. A couple days ago everyone was mad because he was shipping them out. Which is it?

16. "no way analogous to 911"

Looks like the Province of Ontario agrees:

Ontario hospitals ban health-care workers from crossing border to work
