“We’ve made tremendous progress on many issues,” he said.

“Unfortunately, I will leave town with my beloved Expos still here in Washington. You can’t have everything.”

Obama wasn’t short on jokes at Canada’s expense, even teasing Trudeau about hockey and pointing out that the defending Stanley Cup champions are his hometown team, the Chicago Blackhawks.
