Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau met his American counterpart today during a meeting at the White House, and by all accounts the PM’s meeting with President Donald Trump went about as well as anyone could have expected.
“We have a very outstanding trade relationship with Canada. We’ll be tweaking it, we’ll be doing certain things that are going to benefit both of our countries,” Trump said of NAFTA during their joint press conference, while declaring his administration is aiming for “easier, faster trade” with Canada. “We are going to have a great relationship with Canada, maybe as good or better, hopefully, than ever before,” said Trump.
Meanwhile, Trudeau said that the U.S. and Canada are “fundamentally linked” as North American neighbours. “We fought in conflict zones together, negotiated environmental treaties together,” said the PM, “and we’ve entered into ground-breaking economic partnerships that have created good jobs for both of our peoples.”
Following the leaders’ historic meeting, celebrities from both nations took to Twitter to share their comments about what took place — which, for former “Mistresses” star Alyssa Milano, meant observing that Canada’s PM is “so hot.”
Milano wasn’t the only star to weigh in, with Canadian stars Seth Rogen and Samantha Bee offering their impressions. Bee’s “Full Frontal” Twitter account launched a zinger: “Sending Trudeau to stand attractively next to Trump while speaking French is actually the closest thing Canada has to saying “f*** you.”
