Doug Ford Says He's "A Big Republican" On His Trip To The U.S. - 2019-09-21
Despite reports that Andrew Scheer has been doing everything he can to "distance himself" from Doug Ford in the run-up to October's federal election, Ford maintains that the two have a good rapport. That could change, however, following reports that Doug Ford openly declared himself to be a "big Republican," during his recent trip to the United States.
While on a business trip in Ohio this week, Ford met with Alberta Premier Jason Kenney, and Governor Mike DeWine, to discuss protectionist policies in the United States and Canada. During the conversation, Ford is reported to have said, "God bless the President and don't get me wrong. Full disclosure: I'm a big Republican."
He went on to add, "I'm a supporter, conservative-minded and Jason [Kenney] is probably more Conservative than I am!"
