Prime Minister Justin Trudeau says Canadians would appreciate it if Americans paid more attention to what’s going on around the globe.
Trudeau said in a “60 Minutes” interview to be aired Sunday that “it might be nice if they paid a little more attention to the world.”
Trudeau, elected in October, made the remarks after being asked what Canadians don’t like about the U.S.
“Having a little more of an awareness of what’s going on in the rest of the world, I think is, is what many Canadians would hope for Americans,” he said in a transcript released to The Associated Press on Thursday.
The “60 Minutes” profile of Trudeau will air just days before he travels to the White House for a state visit.
Trudeau said Canadians must be aware of at least one other country, the United States, because of its importance.
