“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 Canadian liberal leader said 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.
Surprising comments from a liberal who doesn’t agree with President Trump on several issues like trade, immigration, and climate change.
“I have always found that whenever he has made an engagement to me or a commitment to me on the phone or in person, he followed through on that, and that is someone you can work with,” Trudeau said.
