Prime Minister's Office in a news release on November 15, 2015
That’s not Ban Ki-moon, it’s Jim Kim of the World Bank.FactsCan Score: False
*Editor’s note: Since publication of this check, the caption has been corrected.
Well, that’s embarrassing.
Prime Minister Justin Trudeau may have sat down with the head of the United Nations, Ban Ki-moon, at the Group of 20 meeting in Antalya, Turkey. But this picture from Trudeau’s office doesn’t capture the meeting.
The caption on the Prime Minister’s website at the time of publishing read: “Prime Minister Justin Trudeau meets with Secretary-General of the United Nations Ban Ki-moon at the G20 Summit in Turkey.”
Based on a FactsCan investigation of, um, the bald spots (or not) of the two men, our verdict is false: The man pictured above is Jim Kim, the head of the World Bank.
Below are the two men together in Antalya. Kim’s shirt is another clue that he is pictured above with Trudeau.
