OTTAWA (Reuters) - U.S. President Donald Trump congratulated Canadian Liberal Prime Minister Justin Trudeau early on Tuesday after the federal election put Trudeau back in power, though with a minority in parliament.

“Congratulations to Justin Trudeau on a wonderful and hard fought victory. Canada is well served,” Trump said on Twitter. “I look forward to working with you toward the betterment of both of our countries!”
