Another day, another occasion for the internet to collectively aww at Justin Trudeau.

The Canadian prime minister who has won hearts across the world not just for his government’s welcome to refugees, his liberal stance on gender and race, and his resemblance to a Disney prince (as one comedian put it), set hearts across the world aflutter when he took his youngest child to work on Wednesday.

Trudeau’s Facebook page featured pictures of three-year-old Hadrien sitting in his dad’s office, poring over what seemed to be some very important work emails.

He was also seen facing down the press beside his father, undaunted by all the cameras....

And fielding weighty questions from journalists.

In between all the hard work, father and son even found time to play hide-and-seek...

And let off some steam by running down the corridors of his office.

What’s more, Twitter users even uploaded videos of the winsome twosome. Canadian journalist Julie Van Dusen posted one of them on their way to meet MPs.

Social media users were enchanted. Some praised Trudeau for his devotion to his family, and pointed out that it reminded them of Trudeau as a young child in the same building when his father was prime minister.

“What a great example for the country. A Leader who makes sure he is an active and involved fattier. Bravo! I remember seeing some very similar pictures of another PM Trudeau with a little boy who looked very similar to this one,” said Jai Mills, one Facebook user.

“I am sure there are photos of little Justin in his dad’s office too. Amazing Prime Minister!” said Joanne Orr.

Others couldn’t resist comparing him to Donald Trump, and asking for Hadrien to take over as US president.

“Is this your son PM Trudeau? Is he available to move into the US Whitehouse? I think he would be a much better and more experienced president then we currently have. (He’s absolutely adorable!),” said Elva Campbell on one of the photos.

Whether you agree with her or not, there’s no denying Trudeau once again won the internet.
