Trudeau gets gifts from Pelosi after winning bet on Raptors
Prime Minister Justin Trudeau's visit to the White House today didn't just include a meeting with President Trump, he also received presents from Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi.
Why? Because of a friendly wager over the 2019 NBA finals.
"As I promised, the products of the great state of California," Pelosi said, as she handed over a basket of California chocolates, nuts and wine.
She also congratulated Trudeau on having such a great team.
Trudeau immediately responded with presents of his own, adding that "Canadians are gracious in defeat and even more gracious in victory."
