I was proud to work with Justin Trudeau as President.
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.

Trudeau responded shortly afterwards, referring to Obama as “[his] friend.” .
Thanks my friend, we’re working hard to keep our progress going, Justin Trudeau, via Twitter.
Trudeau is currently seeking re-election in what is predicted to be a tight race.
According to ‘TIME,’ his approval ratings are at near-record lows, largely due to the resurfacing of old photos that show him wearing blackface.
If Trudeau loses re-election, it will be the first time since 1935 that a first-term prime minister with the parliamentary majority has lost.
