PM Trudeau responds to Trump's controversial tweets about US congresswomen

President Donald Trump's suggestion that four female members of congress should go back to where they came from is not a sentiment that Canada's Prime Minister believes in for his own nation, he says.

"I think Canadians and indeed people around the world know what I think of those particular comments".
