Kevin O’Leary a Candian businessman and member of the show “Shark Tank” is entering politics in an attempt to unseat Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau.
According to The Daily Caller:
“Shark Tank” star Kevin O’Leary is back in the political ring in an attempt to help Canada’s Conservative Party replace the Trudeau government.
O’Leary, the cross-border actor and entrepreneur, was the front-runner in the 2017 Conservative leadership race until he somewhat inexplicably pulled the plug on his campaign. He decided to support Quebec Member of Parliament (MP) Maxime Bernier — who narrowly lost to current leader and Saskatchewan MP Andrew Scheer. Bernier has since left the Conservatives to form the libertarian People’s Party of Canada.
O’Leary left the political scene after that, devoting most of this time to his TV series and business matters. But, as the Canadian Press reports, he was back with passion Monday as he and Scheer announced in Toronto that they would be joining forces to put pressure on Prime Minister Justin Trudeau and his Liberals.
O’Leary, known for his blunt, Trump-like assessment of the political environment, addressed students and political faithful at Ryerson University.
O’Leary described Trudeau as weak and also said that the entire cabinet surrounding the Canadian Prime Minister is weak.
