In an odd move by Canada’s Prime Minister, Justin Trudeau has congratulated Joe Biden for a second time on a projected win of the US election. 

Since the US Election, Justin Trudeau has not publicly said if he has spoken to the current U.S. President Donald Trump.

As COVID-19 still remains an issue in both countries, it would be expected that the prime minister is speaking to Canada’s closest ally, but it is not clear if this is occurring. 

On Saturday, November 7, Justin Trudeau tweeted out a congratulatory message to Joe Biden and Kamala Harris. 

In an odd move, Justin Trudeau has once again congratulated Joe Biden while the US election remains contested and no clear winner has yet to have been elected. 

Recently, in another similar move, Pfizer has undermined the current administration by notifying the Biden team about the COVID-19 vaccine development update and not the Trump administration. 

A senior White House aide said that Pfizer did not notify the current Trump administration about the vaccine announcement and only learned of the announcement from press reports.

With his recent comments, the Canadian Prime Minister could be perceived as creating the appearance on the world stage that Canada is seeking to undermine the current US administration.

The Prime Minister’s comment could hinder any chance to achieve substantial policy collaboration with the US government until the end of January when the President is sworn in.

Mexico’s president, Andrés Manuel López Obrador, said on Saturday that he would not congratulate a winner of the US presidential election until all legal challenges are concluded. This move by Mexico’s president is a stark contrast to Canada’s Justin Trudeau. 

Mexico is a partner in NAFTA with the United States and Canada, and the country seeks to avoid friction with Washington during the contested election.
