Cory Booker Claims Canada Is More American Than America, Gives Insane Reason

By  Ryan SaavedraDailyWire.com

Democratic New Jersey Senator Cory Booker claimed on Thursday that Canada was “out-Americaning” the United States because of the cost of college.

“Other people talking about college debt, you’ve got to be kidding me,” Booker said during a speech at Allen University in South Carolina, NTK Network reported.

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

“What does it cost in America?” Booker continued. “Fifty-two percent of median income. Why are other nations out-Americaning us? Why are they out-investing 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?”

Booker claimed that other nations were outdoing the U.S. in all these categories because they want to build a great economy for everybody and the U.S. doesn’t want to.

Booker’s claim that the U.S. doesn’t want to build a great economy for everyone is laughable at best considering a new report that was released this week from the World Economic Forum that showed that the United States has the world’s most competitive economy, a spot that the U.S. has not held since 2008.
