Canadian Prime Minster Justin Trudeau recently had a blackface scandal but that didn't stop former US President Barack Obama from offering his support. Sorry, Joe Biden, you're still not getting acknowledged.
Former President Barack Obama endorsed Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau in his reelection effort Wednesday, part of an attempt to boost the embattled leader's chances of staying in office.
Obama and Trudeau maintained a friendly relationship while they were both heads of the neighboring countries -- Obama honored Trudeau with the first state dinner for a Canadian since 1997 soon after the young leader was elected. The progressive politicians also met for a beer at a Canadian brewery earlier this year.
"I was proud to work with Justin Trudeau as President," Obama said. "He's a hard-working, effective leader who takes on big issues like climate change. The world needs his progressive leadership now, and I hope our neighbors to the north support him for another term."
