"Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau scored a basket of treats from House Speaker Nancy Pelosi on Thursday after winning a bet that the Toronto Raptors would defeat the Golden State Warriors to win the NBA Championship.
Prime Minister Trudeau then pulled out a gift of his own, telling Pelosi, "I put together a little bit of Raptors swag -- I don't expect you to wear it." Trudeau also presented her with chocolate he said was made by a company called Peace by Chocolate in the Canadian province of Nova Scotia that was started by a family of Syrian refugees.
"I really do have to recognize the Warriors' graciousness and their extraordinary sportsmanship that they showed," he said. "It was a tremendous battle between the Raptors and the Warriors."
Trudeau also tweeted about their exchange of gifts, saying, "Thanks for the basket of California's finest, @SpeakerPelosi. No matter who won our #NBAfinals bet, Canadians don't show up empty-handed. @Peacebychoco is some of Canada's best chocolate, and a heartwarming Syrian refugee success story. Hope you enjoy!"
