It's no secret that people are secretly in love with Justin Trudeau, the prime minister of Canada. So when the internet realised that Trudeau was going to meet with President Donald Trump on Monday, they could only hope for one thing: for Trudeau to reenact a scene from Love Actually and win our hearts.
Knowing Trudeau is meeting with Trump now, I'm hoping press conference afterwards is like Hugh Grant's press conference in Love Actually.

For those of you who haven't watched Love Actually in a while (or ever), let me quickly recap what happens. The US president, played by Billy Bob Thornton, visits Britain's prime minister, played by Hugh Grant. The US president is brash and even makes a move on the prime minister's aide/love interest. Fast-forward a few minutes later to their joint press conference and the prime minister slams the US president's policies in the name of love. Watch the scene below.
It's a scene that plenty of people were hoping Justin Trudeau would reenact in his press conference with President Trump.

Sadly, Trudeau did not do anything similar to this scene, but we do have four more years to wait and see whether it comes true.
