President Barack Obama gave the audience in Ottawa a big thumbs-up Wednesday after Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau referenced the commander in chief's "impending retirement."
"It's a little sad that this will be the last chance for all three of us to get together in this capacity, given President Obama's impending retirement," Trudeau said, flanked by the U.S. leader and Mexican President Enrique Peña Nieto.
In response, Obama hinted at his excitement about concluding his second term in the White House, offering the audience a smirk and a thumbs-up.

Trudeau said Obama pointed out his retirement from the presidency "more than once" and "usually with a little smile" during their private talks before the joint press conference.
The three leaders were together in Canada for a summit, which was somewhat of an introduction for Trudeau and a first visit to the country for Peña Nieto, to discuss a pledge to use clean energy resources to generate half of their power by 2025.
