Washington, March 12: Canadian prime minister Justin Trudeau is a big hit in the United States of America and this was evident on his recent trip to the US.
Trudeau on Friday interacted with students at an American University and joked about Indian prime minister Narendra Modi and said: "I have more Sikhs in my Cabinet than Modi does."
Trudeau's cabinet has three Sikh ministers- Harjit Sajjan (Defence Minister), Bardish Chagger (Minister of Small Business and Tourism), Amarjeet Sohi (Minister of Infrastructure and Communities).
Narendra Modi and Justin Trudeau are known to share a warm friendship. When Trudeau was sworn-in as the Canadian PM, Modi had congratulated him and said: "We share a strong bond of democracy and inclusiveness enriched by a vibrant Indian diaspora."
Meanwhile, Justin Trudeau thanked Barack Obama and Michelle for the State Dinner. Trudeau concluded his three-day trip to Washington and termed it a 'memorable one.'
