Obama, Trudeau meet at Ottawa brewery

Former President Obama and Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau were spotted at a brewery in Ottawa, Ontario, on Friday.

The pair, who were known to have a close working relationship during Obama’s tenure in the White House, were pictured on social media with beers and bites in hand at the brewery.

Trudeau shared a picture of the two on Twitter on Saturday morning, and the Big Rig Brewery posted several images of the meeting on its Instagram page.

It was not immediately clear what the two discussed. An Obama spokesperson did not immediately respond to a request for comment from The Hill.

Obama delivered a speech to thousands of attendees in Ottawa on Friday night, where he weighed in on life after his presidency and remarked about having “a little bit of a love affair with Canada,” according to the CBC.

His meeting with Trudeau comes as the Trump administration pushes Congress to pass the United States–Mexico–Canada Agreement, which would replace the North American Free Trade Agreement.

President Trump has strongly advocated for the plan, but Democrats have concerns about its labor and environmental provisions.
