TORONTO - Barack Obama endorsed Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau on Thursday in the Canadian election, calling him an effective leader in a rare endorsement of a Canadian candidate by a former American president.
It is the second time Obama has done it. Obama also urged Canadians to re-elect the Liberal leader in Canada's last election in 2019.
Obama tweeted Thursday that he was proud to work with Trudeau and described him as an effective leader who has strong democratic values.
