Neither are a choice id make, but id take Trump over Trudeau if i had to make a choice. Trudeau is too busy singing kumbaya, taking selfies and p*ssing away tax payer money to get anything constructive done.

The implication being that Trump is going to do something constructive; what might that be?

Quite - I think the lower the constructive action, the more important the mood music. Whilst the Liberals haven't accomplished a huge amount in a year (not that governments normally can/do), the general attitude coming out of Ottawa is very positive, relaxed, optimistic. Gods only know what Trump's going to do or try to, but the noises from DC are bombastic, aggressive and unpleasant. He'd need some serious genuine accomplishments to make that worthwhile, and he's very unlikely to get them considering that the few concrete promises he's made are completely at odds with what's likely to be possible in Congress.

Looks like the Ethics police have a few questions of their own for the PM

Would you rather live in a country where the head of government was Trudeau or Trump?

So on the one hand we have a racist, sexist dodgy businessman who speaks of putting people in prison without trial and on the other hand someone who should have reported a helicopter ride and appears in too many photographs.

Hmmmmm...which one is worse?

Im not a Trump fan....hes a loose cannon from what ive seen of him so far, we can only hope hes a better president than campaigner.

Much of Trump's campaign was about bringing jobs back into the states, which can only be good, charity begins at home.

Cant really say the same for Trudeau...he hasnt done anything except push up Canadian debt with nothing to benefit Canadian citizens, and increase tax so he has more to fritter away.

Perhaps, and that would have Keynesian merit. Also war is good for the economy due to employing a lot of people and reducing the population, he might well achieve that.

Seems the PM upset some English speakers in Quebec by answering a question in French when the question was asked in English.

Did he or did he just upset some people in Calgary? I would think people attending a meeting announced as being in French would not be shocked to hear French.
