ST. JOHN’S, N.L.—Newfoundland and Labrador’s premier has invited U.S. President Donald Trump to the hit Broadway musical Come from Away, saying he hopes “to discuss the virtues of a positive relationship” with the U.S. president.
Dwight Ball’s letter to Trump, dated Tuesday, evokes the province’s historic relationship with the United States, on both trade and military bases.
It describes Trump’s recent policies on tariffs as “extremely troubling,” and says he hoped to discuss “a positive and mutually beneficial trade relationship.”
The musical tells the true story of how Gander, N.L., welcomed more than 7,000 stranded airline passengers after 9/11.
Ball tweeted a copy of the letter Wednesday morning. It notes the tickets would be available at Trump’s “leisure” and “hopefully are tariff-free.”
“Please advise of your acceptance of this invitation and I will forward you tickets,” he writes, without explicitly specifying which city’s version of the show he means. The premier’s office did not immediately return a Canadian Press request for comment Wednesday.
