Obama And Trudeau: The Bromance You Didn't Know You Needed

"There is no relationship in the entire world like the Canada-U.S. relationship."

It may have been Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau's first state visit to the U.S., but he and President Barack Obama seemed just like old friends.

The two leaders held a press conference Thursday morning to discuss the future of U.S.-Canada relations. First up: a joint commitment to fight climate change by reducing methane emissions.

"Whether we're charting a course for environmental protection, making key investments to grow our middle class or defending the rights of oppressed peoples abroad, Canada and the United States will always collaborate in partnership and good faith," Trudeau said. "There is no relationship in the entire world like the Canada-U.S. relationship."

The White House will also host an official state dinner for Trudeau and his wife Sophie.
