President Donald Trump was invited to go see a play on Saturday by Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, but he rejected him and decided to go to a political rally in Nashville, Tennessee and visit the grave site and former home of President Andrew Jackson instead. When asked, he said, “absolutely not,” after listening to some advice by Steve Bannon.
This political move was not an insult as Ivanka Trump went in his place along with 120 ambassadors from around the world. This play, “Come From Away,” shows how hospitable Canadians were to travelers who were stuck in all the chaos and aftermath in the September 11th attacks.
From Young Conservatives:
Donald Trump was in Nashville last week holding a major rally for his supporters. Apparently, he could have gone to a play in New York City with Canadian PM Trudeau. He passed on that… Nice.
Some will say that this is fickle or petty but I say good for him. We don’t need any of that fake and rehearsed theater that we saw from Obama. Instead, Trump went to a rally that helped him out way more than going to this play would have. Justin Trudeau doesn’t know what he’s doing up in Canada and there wasn’t really any need for Trump to play nice with him especially since Ivanka was there.
