Is this the beginning of a beautiful friendship?

Justin Trudeau and Ivanka Trump seemed to get along quite nicely when the PM visited Washington back in February, and now they’re attending musicals together.

Trudeau alongside Donald Trump’s oldest daughter and close advisor, Ivanka, were spotted together on Broadway at the Canadian 9/11 musical Come From Away.

According to a report by The New York Times, Ivanka sat between Trudeau and Nikki Haley, the American ambassador to the United Nations.

Welcoming foreigners in times of need

The musical, written by Canadians Irene Sankoff and David Hein, is about welcoming foreigners in times of need. The play tells the story of how small-town Newfoundlanders opened their doors and hearts to thousands of airplane passengers stranded on September 11, 2001.

The play’s message of acceptance comes at a time where Donald Trump’s travel ban has impacted the lives of many trying to enter the US.

Was Trudeau bringing Ivanka to this musical for a particular reason? Some think so.

Before the play began, Trudeau spoke about the close friendship between Canada and the US.

“There is no relationship quite like the friendship between Canada and the United States. The deep ties…of economics, of business, of friends, of culture, of people travelling back and forth, of families of all these connections,” said Trudeau.

“And this story, and this amazing show is very much about that. And it’s about friendship as well.”

While we are not sure if Justin and Ivanka will be attending more shows together, we hope she picked up on Come From Away’s message of love and acceptance.
