Justin Trudeau hosted the first daughter at a Broadway show on Wednesday in New York City. Though it seems like a friendly move between two countries, the Canadian Prime Minister seems like trying to send a political message to the neighboring country via a performing art.

The Daily Caller reported that Consulate General of Canada booked 500 seats for the show. Ivanka Trump attended the show as a guest of honor along with other Canadian officials and other friends of Canada. The first daughter sat next to Nikki Haley, the US ambassador to United Nations.

The Broadway show, entitled "Come from Away" is about Canada's response to the 9/11 attack. Before the show began, Justin Trudeau spoke about the show portraying the residents of Newfoundland, a remote area in Canada, welcoming more than 5,000 American airline passengers who were affected by the prohibition to fly due to the terrorist attack. The Newfoundland residents hosted the stranded passengers by providing them food and care.

Justin Trudeau spoke to CBC after the show, saying that even though both countries have different ways to approach certain issues, the neighboring countries always agree when it comes to "the fundamental hopes for the future, the responsibilities of keeping people safe and building a better future for the kids." The Prime Minister, who was accompanied by wife Sophie Grégoire Trudeau, also said that to be there when someone needs help during difficult times is the essence of the play, and it is what Canadians and Americans believe in, just like what the Newfoundland people understand.

He also greeted Ivanka Trump after the show was over. When asked about Ivanka Trump, Trudeau said that she enjoyed the show as much as everyone else.

Both Justin Trudeau and Ivanka Trump first met during a roundtable meeting at the White House. The meeting led to internet viral memes of the first daughter seemingly swooned by the Canadian Prime Minister, as reported by the Guardian. The memes also came out alongside the photos of the Duchess of Cambridge shyly looking at Trudeau.
