Video comparing Ford's attacks on media to Trump goes viral - 2020-03-03
A video comparing Ontario Premier, Doug Ford and U.S. President Trump's attacks on the media is making the rounds on social media. In the video, the two conservative political leaders can be seen deriding journalists that are asking them questions.
A clip of Ford comparing the media to "the official opposition" is contrasted with a clip of Trump calling CNN "the enemy of the people." The two are also shown, back-to-back, refusing to answer further questions from what they deem to be hostile reporters.
There is no shortage of similarities between Doug Ford and Trump. The Premier also recently praised the U.S. President and implied that he is cheering for his re-election. In the past, Ford has also suggested that his support for Trump is unwavering, calling him a "genius" with "strong moral fibre."
