President Trump is the same person in private as he is in front of the cameras, Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau said.

"It may be surprising to some that he's authentic, in that the person he is on camera in public is very true to the person he is in private," Trudeau said of the president during an interview with The Skimm. "So there's a consistency there that one can work with."

Trudeau has said in past interviews that Trump listens to opposing views and is open to shifting his position, "unlike many politicians."

But when asked by The Skimm what one issue he would change Trump's mind about, Trudeau declined to give a specific answer.

"As a prime minister, my job is not to try and influence or opine on what a leader of a different country should be doing," he said. "My job is to do the best possible job for my country, and I wouldn't want someone else telling me what I should be doing in Canada ... I expect him to be standing up for what's in the best interests of his citizens, and I'm going to work hard to work in the best interests of my citizens."
