Justin Trudeau and Ivanka Trump take in Broadway play 'Come From Away'

UPI News Service, 03/16/2017 

Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau and Ivanka Trump attended the Broadway show "Come From Away" in New York on Wednesday, an evening rich with symbolism because the play centers on welcoming of foreigners in need.

Trudeau briefly addressed the audience before the show in surprise remarks.

While Trudeau's Liberal government has publicly denounced the Trump administration's policy on refugees and immigrants, the leader did not address it.

Instead, he lauded the Canadians that "Come From Away" represents for opening their community to thousands of stranded travelers from around the world who were forced to land in Newfoundland when U.S. airspace was closed during the Sept. 11, 2001 terrorist attacks.

Trudeau was accompanied by Trump, President Donald Trump's daughter and a close adviser, along with Nikki Haley, the U.S. ambassador to the United Nations.

Trudeau brought with him the mayors of two small Newfoundland towns who inspired characters in the play, which was written by a pair of Canadian playwrights.

Trudeau said both he and Trump enjoyed the play and emphasized despite the policy differences on immigration, the relationship between Canada and the United States is of major importance.

"We're always going to have differences of approaches on certain issues, but the fundamental hopes for the future, the responsibilities of keeping people safe, and building a better future for the kids is something that we can always agree to," Trudeau told the Canadian Broadcasting Corp., after the show.
