Lewandowski: Trudeau Would Stop The Caravan Just Like Trump

David Krayden | Ottawa Bureau Chief

Corey Lewandowski says even Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau would object to a caravan of migrants crossing his country’s border.

The former campaign manager for President Donald Trump told Global News that stopping illegal immigrants from walking into a country should not be controversial.

“I don’t understand the issue of immigration as a controversy because no other country would allow it. Canada would never allow 100,000, 10,000 or 5,000 people to simply come into their country illegally without knowing who those people were,” Lewandowski told Global.

“If Justin Trudeau knew that there was a caravan coming from Montana into Canada, what would he do? He would alert the Canadian Mounties, he would make sure that they were stopped at the border, particularly if you had no indication of who those people were, what their criminal histories were or why they were coming,” he said. (RELATED: Report: There Are Four Migrant Caravans Heading Towards The US Border)

Lewandowski also said it was nonsense to blame Trump for some of the political violence that has rocked America, including the letter bombs that were sent to high-profile Democrats and Trump adversaries.

Jonathan Ernst: "The most visible person in any White House is naturally the President, followed by the press secretary. But there are also the staff who support them, any one of whom might suddenly jump into public view and be national news for a day or two. For those of us covering the President Trump administration, there seem to be more compelling figures in the West Wing than ever before. It's crucial to know who's who and why they're important. When I raised my camera and back-pedalled ahead of the group to take this image Lewandowski gave me a hello and pointed right into the lens. I liked the photo, but had no idea it would go a little bit viral, especially since Scaramucci, who was the biggest mover and shaker that week, was hidden back in the pack. But I guess the image catches a glimpse of what it's like to be a West Wing staffer on the road." REUTERS/Jonathan Ernst/File Photo

“The media has a significant role in the tenure and tone of what takes place,” he said.

“That is what is by and large leading to the problems that we have in our country which is the individuals on those shows … using rhetoric which goes unchecked and unfortunately there is no pushback on it because it’s OK to do it when you’re on the left but when you’re a conservative, it’s a bad thing.”
