Canada’s Prime Minister Justin Trudeau praised President Trump as a man who listens to opposing views and keeps his word.
Trudeau’s audience at the Toronto gathering where he spoke on Thursday thought his remarks were rather funny, The New York Times reported.
“No, I can understand the laughter but there’s a lot of politicians who have a deep, vested interest in being right all the time and therefore close themselves off sometimes to facts or evidence or differing opinions,” the liberal leader said at the event organized by the New York Times and the Rotman School of Management at the University of Toronto.
“What I’ve found from this president is he will listen to arguments made. He will look at the ensemble of facts and proposals of impacts you put together, and he will be open to shifting his position,” Trudeau continued.
