Justin Trudeau and Barack Obama Hug After Dinner at Montreal Restaurant

Obama, Trudeau rekindle 'bromance' over dinner

Prime Minister Justin Trudeau and former U.S. President Barack Obama met for a meal in Montreal Tuesday night, reminding the world that their great political "bromance" is thriving.

And soon after the dinner, the Canadian Prime Minister tweeted: "How do we get young leaders to take action in their communities?"

MONTREAL (AP) — The Paris climate agreement still has a chance despite the "temporary absence of American leadership", Barack Obama said Tuesday, adding that he was cheered that USA states, cities, corporations and others have chose to carry on with the Paris commitments.

After all, Obama has been succeeded in the White House by President Trump, with whom Trudeau so far appears to have less. chemistry.

During the speech, Obama took a page from Michelle and trashed Trump without ever saying his name, citing a "temporary absence of American leadership" and praising USA mayors and governors for upholding the Paris climate change agreement on their own. The pair was expected to eat at Joe Beef, but they ended up dining at Liverpool House restaurant.

Trudeau too succumbed to Obama's charm and, at the end of the American president's time in office, the Canadian leader said he was going to miss him.


After waving to the excited group outside, Obama and Trudeau shared a bro hug before the former president entered an SUV and went on his way, perhaps to give Biden a phone call and chat about ice cream.

The landmark agreement, considered a hallmark of Obama's efforts to combat climate change, was panned by many on the right.

Obama said many jobs have been created in clean industries over the last decade.

Due to Trump, the U.S.is one of just three countries, other than Nicaragua and Syria, to not participate in the deal.

Despite the former president's 275 executive orders and 644 presidential memoranda, Obama argued that the American public shouldn't look for control and certainty in the world before reminding his listeners that history proves there is a better path.
