An honour to meet with America’s Mayor while on the campaign trail.
I can’t wait to become Canada’s Mayor!

Former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani posed for pictures with a right-wing media personality turned mayoral candidate accused of promoting white nationalism and anti-Semitic literature.
The candidate, Faith Goldy, is a far-right YouTuber who is running to be mayor of Toronto. She posted the photos with President Donald Trump’s lawyer on her Instagram feed Tuesday.
“Just like Giuliani cleaned up the streets of NYC, our tough on crime playbook is going to run illegal guns & gangs right out of Toronto!” Goldy wrote on Twitter.
Goldy has cultivated extensive ties with white supremacist groups and personalities, and regularly deploys their rhetoric. She went to the fatal Charlottesville white supremacist march in August 2017 as a correspondent for right-wing Canadian outlet Rebel Media, but was fired from the site after discussing the event on a show hosted by neo-Nazi website The Daily Stormer.
Later in 2017, Goldy recited the “14 Words,” a white nationalist slogan, during a live-streamed interview. Goldy has since called the “14 Words” a “simple statement of survival.” This year, she urged her fans to read a Romanian fascist leader’s book about eliminating “the Jewish menace.”
Some folks are expressing surprise that Rudy would hang out with an anti-semite and white nationalist sympathizer, but I would be surprised if he wouldn’t hang out with them.
I mean come on folks, this is the attorney for the guy who claimed that the first black president was not born in this country, tried to establish a Muslim ban, and is tearing children away from their immigrant parents at the border.
