Morning Buzz! Canadian PM Justin Trudeau Took Ivanka Trump to a Broadway Show About Helping Foreigners + More
From a timely Broadway show to President Trump’s response to his travel ban block, check out six of the buzziest news stories you might have missed over night.
1. Canadian PM Trudeau has been working productively with US President Donald Trump and his administration, even if he doesn’t always agree with his policies. While Ivanka Trump holds no official position in the White House, she joined Trudeau and many members of the Consulate General of Canada in New York last night at a Broadway showing of Come from Away, a Canadian musical about the small town in Newfoundland that took care of stranded airline passengers after the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks grounded thousands of flights. Before the show, Trudeau shared a few words with the crowd, saying that in the show, “The world gets to see what it is to lean on each other and be there for each other.” (h/t New York Times)
2. Meanwhile, in Nashville, President Trump slammed the block of his new travel ban. A day before the president’s revised executive order was set to take effect, a federal judge in Hawaii issued a nationwide restraining order on it, and while he at this time hasn’t tweeted about it, the president told supporters at a rally in Nashville that he would fight the “terrible ruling.” President Trump suggested that his administration wanted to go back to the original, even more restrictive ruling, and that the federal judge who blocked the ban was just trying to make his administration look weak.

Maddow appeared on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon to talk about the tax returns, and showed off her new sleek gray Adidas Stan Smiths, a gift from her girlfriend Susan Mikula. “She said, ‘These are your you-got-the-president’s-tax returns-sneakers,’” Maddow said, adding, “This is now a bounty for whoever gets the rest of them, I will now give you these shoes.”
