Elon Musk was not happy with Justin Trudeau's decision to exercise his emergency powers to stop protesting truckers. Notably, the Prime minister's powers include stopping supporters from donating crypto to the truckers.

Adding to this, Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau's orders include clamping down on protests, arrests and seizing their trucks, which did not sit well with Elon Musk.

Elon Musk showed his disdain by tweeting a meme of Adolf Hitler with the caption:

Although some found Elon Musk's tweet somewhat amusing, the comparison made a lot of citizens upset, notably the American Jewish Committee which responded, "Musk may believe posting a meme comparing Justin Trudeau to a genocidal dictator who exterminated millions is an appropriate way to criticize policies he disagrees with. It is not. It never is. Musk must apologize and find other ways to voice his displeasure."
