Two Polarizing Worlds in the Americas: Trump’s America and Trudeau’s Canada

“To those fleeing persecution, terror, and war, Canadians will welcome you, regardless of your faith. Diversity is our strength. #WelcomeToCanada,” Justin Trudeau
The above mentioned words were part of a Facebook post by Canada’s Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, where he reiterated His stance on refugees and his inclusive immigration policies, which stand to reflect the increasingly polite gestures that Mr. Trudeau has been extending to the world, a thing expected from a First World Nation.
While sharing the border with Canada, The United States is now being steered to a very different course altogether with the 45th President now in place, i.e. Mr. Donald Trump. Trump has been a divisive figure since he announced his candidacy but what he has done in the first few days of assuming the role is far from what should be expected of a superpower like the United States. A superpower is a role model for other countries to follow, but Trump’s America is not caring for that role, it is rather treading on a very different path altogether, which many skeptics believe is highly dangerous in the long run.
The people of the US voted democratically for Mr. Trump and no one can come in between what the people want for themselves and what they believe is beneficial for their cause. Maybe we will be wrong in blaming Trump for his ban on Muslims from 7 countries, it’s probably the manifestation of what the American populations wants for themselves.
The Canadians reflect differently, they are accepting immigrants and even more so from aggrieved nations as a symbol of solidarity. Trudeau is the ideal man to lead the charge here, but the Canadians want it more than Trudeau. Trump rules a highly divisive world, where protectionist policies rule economic strategies and fear rebuffs empathy. Trump is not the one to blame, he is only serving what the people want. There is fear as well as hope in humans, we are pessimistic as well as optimistic and nothing personifies that difference more than the border line separating Canada and US on the Continental America.
Things should be different we argue, but there are those who we argue against that have a right to denial as well. The right to deny should be as stringently defended as the right to accept, as they both stand to represent what people want, but since we perceive things through our own biased lenses, that is not to happen and there will be a backlash on Trump’s America. Still, we should continue to hope that people will recognize the other one’s right to live in seclusion or be inclusive, without being judgemental of either. If there is peace, there is no problem in both of them continuing to exist profoundly within their own shells.
Trudeau should not be used a moral compass for Trump.
