    Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau will be featured in an interview on "60 Minutes," in which he talks about what Canadians think about Americans' views of the world.

    Canada's Prime Minister Justin Trudeau is visiting the U.S. in the first such appearance by a Canadian prime minister in 19 years.

    The trip to the White House on Thursday is attracting attention to Trudeau's looks, which a senior Obama administration official called "dreamy," Politico reported.

    Trudeau, 44, is married to a former model and is considered a progressive warrior in Canada, where his father Pierre served as prime minister for most of the period from 1968 until 1984.

    His popularity is not unlike that of Obama during his first term. In fact, Obama joked about it during their November meeting in the Philippines at APEC, a gathering which promotes free trade throughout the Asia-Pacific region.
