Newsroom Ready: Singh says Trump turnout speaks to Americans’ desperation and anger with a rigged system

NDP Leader Jagmeet Singh says Americans turned out in droves to vote for President Donald Trump despite his “abject failure” of leadership due to “desperation ... frustration and anger” in a country where social mobility is increasingly elusive. The legitimate grievances of middle- and lower-income citizens stem in part from tax loopholes for the wealthy, but have been misdirected into ballots for the current White House occupant, Singh says.
