“When leaders are faced with citizen’s anxiety, we have a choice to make… do we exploit that anxiety, or do we allay it? Exploiting it is easy, but in order to allay it, we need to be prepared to answer some very direct questions: What will create the good, well-paying jobs that people want and need and deserve? What will strengthen and grow the middle class, and help those working hard to join it? What will build an economy that works for everyone? What will help to make the world a safer, more peaceful place? To allay people’s anxiety, we need to create economic growth that is broadly shared, because a fair and successful world is a peaceful one.

We believe we should confront anxiety with a clear plan to deal with its root causes, and we believe we should bring people together around shared purposes like the UN’s sustainable development goals, because what is the alternative? To exploit anxiety? To turn it into fear and blame? To reject others because they look or speak or pray differently than we do? Every single day, we need to choose hope over fear, diversity over division.”— Justin Trudeau, not-so-subtly taking a dig at Donald Trump’s dismal campaign strategies during his first address to the United Nations General Assembly on Tuesday evening.
