Last week, President Donald Trump signed an executive order, banning citizens of seven Muslim countries from entering the United States for a minimum of 90 days. The order also banned refugees from immigrating to the U.S. for 120 days.

Canada’s Prime Minister, Justin Trudeau, reacted to the news on Twitter, vowing to accept all refugees that the U.S. is turning away:

Trudeau has been a huge supporter of Syrian refugees being welcomed in Canada. He personally welcomed incoming refugees in 2015, and oversaw the arrival of more than 39,000 Syrian refugees shortly after he was elected.

The Prime Minister has not publicly spoken against Trump or the United States policies, most likely to keep the U.S.-Canada relationship in good standing. However, according to a spokeswoman for Trudeau, “The Prime Minister is looking forward to discussing the successes of Canada’s immigration and refugee policy with the President when they next speak.”
