Trudeau criticized over $50M tweet

Federal Conservative Leader Andrew Scheer is accusing Prime Minister Trudeau of being bent on impressing celebrities instead of acting like a prime minister.

He commented after Trudeau posted a tweet last night to comedian Trevor Noah.

Trudeau pledged 50-million dollars for a global charity event for children's education that Noah is hosting in South Africa.

The Global Citizen Festival is a charity concert honouring human rights legend Nelson Mandela a century after his birth.
