The Canadian prime minister was accused of using an illicit substance during a recent trip to south Asia.
Indian diplomat Deepak Vohra accused the Canadian prime minister of indulging in cocaine during his recent trip to India on a TV show.
“When Justin Trudeau came to India for the G20 this month, his plane was full of cocaine. He did not come out of his room for two days,” claimed Vohra during an interview with Indian news outlet Zee News.
The allegations generated international press coverage, including coverage in outlets based in India and in Canada.
In response, the prime minister’s office denied that Trudeau was using cocaine during his trip to India. It brushed off the accusations as “disinformation,” as was reported by the Toronto Sun.
Calgary-based journalist Wyatt Claypool expressed doubt about the cocaine rumours, stating, “[it] isn’t true but people sure are becoming united on a mutual need to dunk on Trudeau for causing international and domestic chaos.”
Trudeau is currently under fire for straining relationships with India after he accused their government of assisting in the assassination of a Khalistani extremist in British Columbia.
On top of that, the Canadian prime minister is under fire by Jewish rights groups for celebrating a Nazi war criminal in Parliament. That move lead to international condemnation from media organizations worldwide.
This comes as the Conservative Party maintains a near 20-point lead over Trudeau’s Liberal Party, according to some polls.
