Fox News host Tucker Carlson slammed Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau the latter’s comments in September praising COVID-19 fears as an “opportunity for a reset” to “accelerate our pre-pandemic efforts to reimagine economic systems that actually address global challenges like extreme poverty, inequality, and climate change.”
“Watch this video from September, you may not have seen it – it wasn’t played much in this country,” Carlson said before rolling the footage. “This is the Prime Minister of Canada Justin Trudeau speaking to the United Nations.”
“Oh, ‘this is our chance,’ says Justin Trudeau,” Carlson noted, mockingly. “Not our chance to save you from a virus with a 99% survival rate, you’ll almost certainly be fine, and they’re fully aware of that.”
Carlson continued, “‘This is our chance’ to impose totally unprecedented social controls on the population, in order to bypass democracy and change everything to conform with their weird academic theories that have never been tested in the real world, and by the way don’t actually make sense. This is their chance.”

Trudeau’s comments were trending on social media this week after the latest rounds of media proclamations surrounding COVID-19, as reported by National File:
As of Monday morning, “The Great Reset” was trending on Twitter after Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau suggested the COVID-19 virus provided an “opportunity for a reset … to re-imagine economic systems”. This was taken as an endorsement of a World Economic Forum plan to concentrate most private property in the hands of Big Tech mega-corporations.
The “Great Reset” plan involves a collaboration between national governments and international bodies to “reset capitalism” with an integrated transnational technocratic welfare/surveillance state by the year 2030.
Mainstream media outlets such as Vice, The Guardian and TechCrunch have derided Jones’ claims as “conspiracy theory” but, no matter how far-fetched they may sound, the World Economic Forum is actually quite up-front about it.
Local governments and media organizations have begun advocating increasingly totalitarian left-wing policies as the debate about COVID-19 rages on.
On Sunday, CNN’s Jake Tapper said that Christmas and Thanksgiving will not “be possible” during a discussion with Dr. Anthony Fauci about how lockdowns and mask regulations should continue well into 2021 even if a vaccine is developed.
