Why Canadian PM Justin Trudeau is single again

Published

on

Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau and his wife, Sophie, announced their separation, bringing an end to their 18-year marriage.

The unexpected announcement comes after the couple had been open about the challenges in their relationship, and they were seen less frequently together in public over the past few years.

Justin Trudeau, aged 51, and Sophie Gregoire Trudeau, aged 48, were married in May 2005 and have three children, aged 15, 14, and nine. Trudeau has previously spoken fondly of his wife, calling her his “rock, partner, and best friend.” The separation holds historical significance for Trudeau, as his father, former Prime Minister Pierre Trudeau, also separated from his wife, Margaret, during his time in office in 1977.

“Personal crisis”

The separation comes as a personal crisis for Prime Minister Trudeau, who has emphasized the importance of family life. It follows a recent cabinet shuffle aimed at boosting the fortunes of his Liberal Party, which has been trailing in the polls. Despite the separation, Trudeau is determined to lead the Liberals into the next election, scheduled for October 2025.

Both Justin and Sophie shared the announcement on their respective Instagram accounts, expressing that the decision was reached after meaningful and difficult conversations.

They signed a legal agreement and will focus on raising their children together. Sophie will move into separate accommodation in Ottawa but plans to spend time with the children at the prime minister’s official residence, Rideau Cottage, to provide them with a normal upbringing.

Sophie Gregoire Trudeau, known for advocating gender equality, met Justin Trudeau in 2003 when she was working as a reporter. The couple quickly became media darlings, attracting attention from around the world. However, in recent years, they had limited joint appearances, indicating the challenges they faced in their marriage.

The announcement marks a significant chapter in the lives of the Trudeau family and has drawn attention from the public and media alike.

Democrats scramble to rally behind Harris as Trump allies launch next phase of campaign

Biden Withdraws: President Joe Biden Ends Reelection Bid, Endorses Kamala Harris.

 

After weeks of battling to salvage his political career – claiming he wouldn’t be stepping down after a disastrous debate performance – the president’s sudden change of course was not announced through an Oval Office address or a campaign speech. Instead, it was revealed in a letter posted to social media while he was recovering from Covid-19 at his beach house in Delaware.

“And while it has been my intention to seek reelection, I believe it is in the best interest of my party and the country for me to stand down and to focus solely on fulfilling my duties as President for the remainder of my term,” Biden wrote in a letter posted to X.

Harris expressed her gratitude for Biden’s endorsement, stating she is “honoured” and committed to “earning and winning” the nomination. Should she secure the nomination, Harris would make history as the first Black woman and first Asian American to lead the ticket of a major political party. To facilitate her candidacy, the Biden-Harris campaign has updated its filings with the Federal Election Commission, renaming its principal committee to reflect Harris’s new status as a presidential candidate.

Despite Biden’s support, the path forward remains uncertain. It is unclear whether Harris will automatically become the nominee or what alternative processes the Democratic Party might consider. Additionally, sources suggest that Senator Joe Manchin, an independent from West Virginia, is contemplating re-registering as a Democrat to enter the presidential race.

In response to Biden’s withdrawal, former President Donald Trump criticised Biden as “the worst president by far in the history of our country” during a call with CNN. Trump has also launched a fundraising appeal to rally his supporters.

Donald Trump has said he thinks Kamala Harris will be easier to beat than Joe Biden.

With Biden out, Trump’s campaign will now adjust its strategy, focusing on attacking Harris and any other possible Democratic candidates. They aim to convince voters that Harris would be just as ineffective as Biden.

Biden faced growing doubts about his ability to win re-election, especially after a weak debate performance against Trump. Some Democrats also lost confidence in his leadership, leading him to step down.

Donald Trump said he thinks Kamala Harris will be easier to defeat than Biden. Trump and his team quickly began attacking both Biden and Harris online, claiming that Biden was not fit to be president and that Harris would be just as bad.

Allies of former President Donald Trump quickly launched their campaign against Vice President Kamala Harris on Sunday afternoon, preparing a series of anti-Harris ads and planning their strategies for attacking her.

“I call her laughing Kamala,” Trump told the crowd, during his nearly two-hour appearance. “You can tell a lot by a laugh. She’s crazy. She’s nuts.”
