Prime Minister Justin Trudeau has assured Mexico that he remains committed to renegotiating NAFTA and, evidently, appearing in photographs with practically anyone who asks.
Trudeau was taking questions from the media at a joint news conference with Mexican President Enrique Pena Nieto Thursday when one journalist had a, shall we say, different kind of inquiry.
BuzzFeed News Mexico shared a clip of Maru Rojas, of Radio Formula, asking the prime minister if he would take a photograph with her.

Trudeau did not give her a picture. He gave her four, some of which now adorn her Twitter account:

PM urges senators to advance women’s rights
Trudeau wrapped up his first official visit to Mexico Friday with a speech to its Senate, where he urged senators to do more to advance women’s rights in their country.
He also reaffirmed his commitment to reaching a new trade deal with Mexico and the U.S.
“A strong North America can only come from a strong Mexico, a strong Canada, and a strong United States,” he said.
“We are partners — all of us. And even in the face of unpredictability and change, we must remember that.”
