Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau has become the latest cover star of iconic US magazine Rolling Stone alongside the words: “Why can’t he be our president?”

PM Trudeau is pictured on the front of the bi-weekly popular culture mag perching on the edge of a desk with his shirt sleeves rolled up.

A headline to accompany the article online reads: “Is the Canadian Prime Minister the Free World’s Best Hope?”

In the profile, writer Stephen Rodrick outlines stark contrasts between Trudeau’s liberal views on health care, marijuana legalization and environmental policies and those voiced by U.S. President Donald Trump.

Trudeau is quoted as saying he disagrees with Trump “on a whole bunch” of issues, but he also stresses that the two leaders have “a constructive working relationship.” 

​Trudeau says that seeking to insult Trump “or overreact or jump at everything he says” on matters where they differ would not result in a constructive relationship.

It is usually musicians who are featured on the splash of the magazine, with the Beatles appearing on the cover as individuals or as a band more than 30 times.

Famous figures not from the world of music to have featured on the cover include Pope Francis and Barack Obama.
