(Joshua Paladino, Liberty Headlines) Sen. Cory Booker, D-N.J., joined the trend of Democratic politicians trashing the United States by calling Canada more American than America at a speaking event in South Carolina on Oct. 18.

“Every country we are competing with is driving down the cost of college. Germany—it costs between 0 and 4 percent of median income to go to college,” Booker said. “Canada—I can’t stand how they’re out-Americaning us in Canada. Trudeau—give me a break.”

Booker, who gave the speech at Allen University, is visiting early voting states as he considers a 2020 bid for the Democratic presidential nomination, NTK Network reported.

He continued to say that in Canada it “costs about 6 to 7 percent of median income to go to college.”

.

“What does it cost in America? 52 percent of median income,” Booker said. “And why are other nations out-Americaning us? Why are they out-investing in infrastructure—the way we used to. Why are they out-investing in research and development—the way we used to. Why are they out-investing in education—the way we used to. Why are they [doing] universal preschool and we’re not? Why are they doing paid family leave and we’re not?

“Why? Booker continued. “Because this is what builds a great economy for everybody. They’re trying to beat us to the future when we used to lead in America.”
