Claiming the past decades have left the public feeling neglected by politicians, he described decision to leave the European Union as an act of “frustration”.

Mr Trudeau claimed the results of the referendum saw “people expressing very real frustration and their anger against institutions and out-of-touch elites.”

The Canadian Prime Minister made the remarks in an interview German newspaper Bild.

The PM was responding to a question about Donald Trump and whether how much the G20 nations should listen to the United States president.

Mr Trudeau said: “Donald Trump was elected by people who seriously wonder what globalisation and global trade are doing for them. Over the decades, people felt neglected by political institutions.

“People have voted for Trump and said: Fix it!

“I think, in the last few years, we have seen a number of concrete examples – and the election of Mr Trump is one of them, the Brexit decision another – of people expressing very real frustration and their anger against institutions and out-of-touch elites.

“That has always been around, you can see it in the protests here.

“If the recent election results and the pressures out there have told us anything, it’s that it’s really important to listen to people, to understand their concerns and their fears.”
