His comments followed Canadian President Justin Trudeau’s invocation of the EmergencyPowers Act against the Freedom Convoy in Canada.

During a press conference Monday in Ottawa, Canadian Finance Minister Chrystia Freeland explained some of the consequences of Justin Trudeau’s unprecedented use of the emergency law.

Bukele tweeted an excerpt from the press conference in which Freeland explains that Canada is “expanding the scope of anti-money laundering and terrorist financing regulations [in the country]” to include truckers and Canadians supporting the Freedom Convoy in Ottawa, thwarting their efforts to regain their freedoms
