Trump joked about being good looking with Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, Washington Post reports.
The Post was reporting on Trump’s diplomatic efforts, and which world leader Trump is likeliest to choose as his best friend. It described a moment from Trudeau’s visit, saying:”When Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau paid a visit last month, Trump ribbed the dashing 45-year-old for being ‘even better looking than he is,’ the adviser said.”
The Post says Trump, who struggles with being in unknown environments, wants world leaders to visit him, “One of the things that people like me have been saying to foreign governments and leaders is, come early, come often,” said Stephen J. Hadley, President George W. Bush’s national security adviser. “Get to know this president. Try to develop a personal relationship. Get to know his team. These folks are new to government and they will listen.”
Trump reportedly wants to interact with leaders who flatter him, and who are interested in deal making.
“He loves deals,” White House press secretary Sean Spicer said. “President Trump is a people person. He’s a dealmaker. He’s a negotiator. He’s a businessman. He understands how to sit in a room and get a deal, and he enjoys it.”
