Barack Obama may no longer be the president, but that’s hasn’t put a damper on his “bromance” with Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau.
While in Montreal Tuesday for a speaking engagement organized by the Board of Trade of Metropolitan Montreal, Obama had dinner with Trudeau.
And Montreal-born Trudeau, tweeted, “How do we get young leaders to take action in their communities? Thanks @BarackObama for your visit & insights tonight in my hometown.”
The pair had dinner at Liverpool House in Montreal’s Little Burgundy neighborhood after the former commander in chief gave a speech at the city’s Palais des congrès. “Seaside cottage charm and bustling oyster counter,” reads the restaurant’s description on its website. “Sexy Old World wines, and crazy fresh market food. A great club house feel.”
During his speech, Obama addressed the Paris Accord, saying it still has a chance despite the “temporary absence of American leadership.” It was an obvious reference to President Trump announcing the U.S. is pulling out of the agreement. U.S. states, cities, corporations and others have decided to carry on with the Paris commitments.
