American men drop to their knees, literally beg Justin Trudeau to run for U.S. president
尽管如此，特鲁多还是拒绝了：“我不知道你们知不知道，我已经有一份工作了，还是一份挺好的工作。“Prime Minister Justin Trudeau's recent trip to the U.S. appears to have made quite an impression on our American friends — perhaps too good an impression, judging by these videos of two New York men literally begging him to run for president.
Trudeau was approached with the request on Thursday during his trip to New York City, according to journalist Marie-Joëlle Parent, who shared a video of the encounter.
Parent shared the following video of Canada's prime minister chatting with two young men in the Mile End Delicatessen. In it, they are seen telling Trudeau about how unhappy they are with the candidates currently running for president in this year's U.S. election.
"All those guys are so bad. They're so terrible. Please," says one man as Trudeau laughs and shakes his head.
"They're boring, weird … we have to settle for them," says the other man. "Please."
In another video that has since been deleted, Trudeau declines the invitation to run for president on the grounds that he's not U.S.-born.
The American men were quick to counter by pointing out that Republican presidential hopeful Ted Cruz was born in Calgary.
"I have tremendous confidence in the American people," Trudeau told the men, but they weren't convinced.
"We'll do anything. We're begging you," said one man before both dropped to their knees, hands clasped in front of them.
"We're literally begging you."
Most of the people around Trudeau are seen laughing at this point, but the prime minister remained steadfast.
"I don't know if you noticed, but I actually have a job, and it's a pretty good one," he said. Then, with a hearty laugh and a pat on the back for one of the kneeling men, the prime minister went on his way.
Trudeau was in New York City on Wednesday to announce that Canada would seek a UN Security Council seat in 2021.
