This has resulted in stronger ties between the two administrations, without hurting Trudeau's image in Canada or elsewhere in the world.

Trudeau reportedly sent his top ministers to meet their new counterparts in Washington to help build good relations.

Of course, as the Prime Minister recently said in his own Washington visit, "We won't always agree on everything."

But, Trudeau added, "The last thing Canadians expect is for me to come down and lecture another country on how they choose to govern themselves."
