Erdogan these days isn't more than 182 next to Stoltenberg,somewhere in that 5'11.5 range.He was listed at 183 which is reasonable for his peak,he was still able to look very close to 6' some years ago.Trudeau is definitely in that 6'1.25-1.5 range,slightly taller than Obama
Vtec said on 4/Nov/20
I've seen trudeau live, he is around 5-11.5 - 6-0.
Alir?za said on 28/Jun/20
Since Erdogan is 183-185 cm, Traude can be 187 cm. But Erdogan is 66 years old maybe he shrunk 1-2 cm.. Anyway Traude's height is at least 185 cm, maybe 188 cm

@ 5.9 legit guy

He's PM not president. 6'1ish
5.9 legit guy said on 10/May/20
187 cm guy.Obviously taller than Obama and much taller than Trump (be aware this guys is wearing lifts !)
Long legs,long arms,big shoe size and great proportions. Legit 187 cm guy
I love him as a President

@Editor Rob: was he listed 6’2 at one point or was it 6’1,75?
Editor Rob
Canson said on 23/Feb/20
@Rampage: I remember him being listed higher before. If he’s really only 6’1.5, that’s very bad news for Mr. Trump
Peter175 said on 20/Feb/20
Hes not lower than this. Solidly above Obama and definitely Trump. I think his previous listing of 187 was better
Matt Marsden said on 31/Oct/19
Solid 6'1.5", plausibly 187 cm on average
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 22/Sep/19
This is the lowest I can see him measuring
guythinkingaboutheight said on 7/Jul/19
Rob, would you say this guy is a solid, strong or weak 187cm?
Editor Rob
He can look all 3, but generally I would say over 6ft 1 but not quite a full 6ft 2.

I think he is 184.3 cm
berta said on 26/Mar/19
He and Obama arr the same height. he is 1 cm talet Than Obama ni more, could even be the same.
Lawson said on 20/Mar/19
Thanks Rob, Tribeck gotta be 5'11" in that pic compared to the other's claim and besides Trudeau
Paul NS (6ft 0.5) said on 16/Mar/19
Trebek at 5'8" is definitely shortchanging him. On Cheers he was very similar (taller?) to Ratzenberger
Lawson said on 15/Mar/19
Google Alex Tribeck and Justin Trudeau Rob.. How can tribeck be only 2-2.5" shorter than justin??? Tribeck is listed as 5'8" everywhere. Whats going on here
Editor Rob
I'm not so sure he's only 5ft 8. Pat Sajak claimed 5ft 10 and Vanna White 5ft 6...Click Here.
Now maybe they all shrunk a bit...
Ashsmak said on 9/Mar/19
Just watched a 5’8” Alex Trebek stand next to Trudeau. Trudeau did not appear to be as tall as purported
Yang (5ft 8 Chinese men) said on 22/Jan/19
For sure he is definitely taller than Obama and Trump for sure!!! I can see his height is similar range with Tesla billionaire Elon Musk.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 20/Jan/19
excuse me and Paul Ryan
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 20/Jan/19
I think 6ft1 flat is too low. Taller than Obama and Trump
Andrea said on 10/Nov/18
What about a slight downgrade to 6'1.5, Rob? I agree with Tunman. While he can certainly look taller than Obama, when he does it's usually by no more than a fraction (0.5 inch MAX), and there are several pics where he can look no taller, or even a bit shorter than him. 6'1.5 isn't impossible, but certainly the most I'd argue, and I wouldn't be surprised if he was nearer 6'1 flat...
Editor Rob
Overall 6ft 1.5 probably a fair fit. 6ft 2 just seemed a bit high, but 6ft 1 a bit low.

Maybe he is like Elon Musk, who came out with 6ft 2 before then saying 6ft 1.5...most guys would round up.
Mickie said on 10/Nov/18
Perhaps then it's time to put him at 186 cm. It's a believable figure, and looks about right overall than 187 - 188 cm range.
Tunman said on 9/Nov/18
RobClick Here:
In fact I was surprised by the number of pics where he could look similar to Trump or even shorter than Obama,but finally it's maybe the pic where he looks maybe a strong 6'1.I would still have thought 6'1.5"max though,I hardly see more than 1cm difference if you take away his thick hair.
Editor Rob
Sometimes 6ft 1 seems a more believable figure for Justin, as he can look under and over the mark.
Mickie said on 16/Sep/18
I agree with Alex65. Trudeau seems much more like 6'1.25" - 6'1.5" than over it.
Alex65 said on 8/Sep/18
186 cm, not 187. At the G7 summit he looked about 1.5/2cm taller than 184.5 Trump.
Alex65 said on 8/Sep/18
186 cm, not 187. At the G7 summit he looked
arun kc said on 11/Aug/18
Approps my last comment, correction: people guess Trudeau as 6-2 rather than 6-1 because of his lean physique.
Mickie said on 9/Aug/18
He's probably more 6'1.25 - 6'1.5" than this imo
arun kc said on 9/Aug/18
Tudeau Obama prince Harry all look iden
tical in height about 6-1.his dad was 5-10 but
mom was really tall at 5-8. His defense minister amarjeet sohi is s burly 6footer of Indian descent.shortet than Trudeau by one inch.
Trudeau looks taller due to his lean physique hence many people estimate him at 6-2 rather than 6-2

Rob, you said that Tusk can look anywhere from 5'8.5" to 5'9". Here is a group photo of Trudeau, Trump, Macron, Tusk and Angela Merkel: Click Here

Trump looks like max one inch shorter than him, so I would still like to argue at 6'0.75" for Trump. Rob, is there a chance that you will add Tusk or Merkel to your website?
Editor Rob
Tusk can look in 5ft 9 range there with Justin.
Dominique said on 13/Jun/18
Justin's father Fidel Castro stood 6'2", while Pierre Elliot Trudeau was only 5' 10" tall.
Micky said on 11/Jun/18
Looks more 186 cm than 187 cm. Honestly he can look 6'1"-ish a lot.
wen said on 11/Jun/18
Trudeau wears heels and lifts to appear taller than he is.
Micky said on 10/Jun/18
He's got an inch on current day Trump max. Maybe not even quite that much, really. Click Here
richinkle said on 6/Jun/18
Trudeau is 6'-1/2". He is slightly shorter than 6'-1" Obama in just about every picture of them standing side by side.
Click Here
Close in height to Trump.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 5/Apr/18
Its the lowest I’d argue for Trudeau. Generally I think he does look close to 6ft2
Micky said on 3/Apr/18
Rob, isn't 6'1.25" - 6'1.5" more realistic for this guy?
Editor Rob
6ft 1.5 might well be a figure he could measure...and naturally you'd round up if you were that height, well the majority would do so.
Micky said on 20/Mar/18
He can look 6'1" - maybe 6'1.5" is a better listing than 1.75"?

Next to Trump and Obama, doesn't look a full 6'2"
TheManWithNoName said on 2/Mar/18
Rob, any thoughts on the pics I posted?
Editor Rob
Justin at times can look 6ft 1, I think really the most he should be is 6ft 1.5.
Garrett188 said on 9/Feb/18
Doesn't often look over 6'1. Often flip-flops looking taller/shorter/equal to Donald Trump in recent photos who is certainly under 6'1 by now (regardless of what this BS physical says). Has proportions more similar to my 6'1 friends than me.
Maybe if he straightens his posture out fully he could reach 6'1.25 but I wouldn't argue anything above that.
Easterwood 6'3 said on 24/Dec/17
I've never ever seen him look this tall. He needs at least an inch of downgrade.
Greg said on 9/Dec/17
Not sure why all the "Obama is taller than him" posts - Obama in the pics I've seen looks about an inch'ish shorter. This dude looks around 6'2", perhaps fractionally under.
EM said on 24/Nov/17
Looks a little less than this to me, barely edging out Trump recently (who is sub 6'1" these days himself). So I'm thinking Trudeau might be more 6'1" - 6'1.5" range than 6'1.75" or 6'2".

Maybe in some photos he edges him out, difficult to tell.

@Rob, is he definitely taller than Prince Harry? Click Here and Click Here
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 1/Sep/17
Looked right between Prince William (6ft2¾) and Prince Harry (6ft1¼) when standing on level ground and all in similar footwear. So this mark is fair
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 30/Aug/17
I think Trudeau would have 1in on Trump today but at peak Trump would have edged him...
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 15/Jul/17
Lowest 6ft1½
John said on 13/Jul/17
I think he's probably six foot one even. In most pictures, Trudeau and Trump look like they're the exact same height. Maybe Trudeau edges him out by a quarter of an inch or so. In any case, massive downgrade is needed.
Liberty183.3 said on 18/Jun/17
More like 73.5. Still a somewhat tall dude.
Chris said on 6/Jun/17
I've met him and I'm 5'10". He's a solid 6'2"
JZ said on 29/May/17
Definitely needs a downgrade. He's basically the same height as Trump and Obama, both of which are 184-185cm at best.

After seeing more photos, I was wondering, is 186 possible?

Even 184-185 is possible, he is a shoe claim guy.
Johan said on 26/May/17
This guy needs a big big downgrade. Look at him next to Merkel and Trump at the G7 summit. If anything 6'0.5" listed Trmup is edging HIM out LOL.

Click Here Also next to Prince Harry ( 6'1") and he has more footwear!

Next to 6'1" Obama , the guy is 6'1" another liar.

Click Here Harry again.

Click Here Mr to watch Rob.

@Don't know what to claim(5'11")
i don't know, 5'10 people come up to my eye level on the dot and i'm 6'2. a lot of pictures with rob tho shows their eye level being like 5'8ish but still definitely not towering. just plain taller.

He's 6'2". I'm 5'10" and I've met him - he absolutely towered me.


4 inches is like forehead difference. Barely towering.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 21/Mar/17
Weak 6ft2 is spot on. Solid 1in on Trump, almost 1in on Obama
HonestSlovene said on 21/Mar/17
Yeah Trump is 184.5 cm and he is about 186.5 cm, during their meeting he only slightly edged out Trump.

He is 1cm taller than 185cm Obama.
Trump is around 181/182 compared to Trudeau

i think he have obama with 1/4 no more. they always look the sam height and i n my eyes obama is 186. this guy need 1/4 downgrade
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 15/Feb/17
This guy is easily taller than Trump
Johnson said on 14/Feb/17
Shorter or as tall as than Trump
Bill said on 13/Feb/17
Fern, what image were you looking at? I just saw the joint press conference and Trudeau looks to have about 1.5 inches MINIMUM on Trump on the stage that they're both on. If anything, Trump may need a downgrade. Trump's DEFINITELY not the 6'3" he claims.
Editor Rob: when Trump greeted Justin, as I pointed out, the ground wasn't flat, something we should always be wary of.
Phil said on 13/Feb/17
He is 186 cm.
HonestSlovene said on 13/Feb/17
I'm watching the live stream for the press conference with Trudeau and he has an easy inch on Trump. Looksa 6'1.5 in tall as I have written here on 23rd of April 2016 (username "truth").
heelshealheight said on 13/Feb/17
Rob, whichever photos you check including the Trump-Trudeau meeting you'll see that they both stand at the same height; one could argue that Trudeau is (perhaps) slightly shorter than Trump. Compare these photos with the ones with Obama and it appears that the above-6ft height claims hold no water. Trump, Trudeau, and Obama all appear to be no more than 6ft tall. Michelle Obama, however, is a genuine 5ft11 tall woman and she appears to be nearly the same height with these men; her daughter, Malia, is taller than this entire aforesaid lot as she stands circa 6ft1/6ft2 tall (she mainly wears flats).
Editor Rob: having seen them at their podiums, I'd be surprised if Trump was the same height, he looked shorter.
Fern194cm-192cm said on 13/Feb/17
wow, trump might need an upgrade he is about a 0.25 to a half inch taller as of their meeting today at the white house. Rob, unless trump wears lifts it seems like he is taller than we thought and slouches down when he is around people of shorter stature. If not, trudeau needs a downgrade to about 6 foot. But I think he is around the listed height so what are you thinking Rob?
Editor Rob: if they met On this ground, then it's maybe not what I'd call level enough.

How tall is one of his Cabinet Ministers, Amarjeet Sohi? 6'1"?
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 21/Nov/16
Has a solid 2cm on Obama
berta said on 21/Nov/16
this seems right he is 187 and obama 186 thats why you cant hardlytell who is the taller one.
Aza said on 10/Nov/16
Does anybody know the average height of Snow Mexican (Trump, 2016) males in Canada? I mean are they on average as tall as USA males? Am gonna go with 6'1.5 for Trudeau.
S.J.H said on 9/Nov/16
Justin Trudeau is 186cm maybe few mm over and obama 185cm
Marcus said on 24/Sep/16
Just recently Prince William and Kate came to Vancover and the media caught that trudeau looked 2 inches shorter than the 6 ft 3 prince definitely 6'1 no more than that.
MD said on 6/Sep/16
This is silly. Trudeau consistently looks taller than Obama, and it's because he is. It's not by a lot, of course, but it's obvious and noticeable. It's one thing to not think the difference is as much as their current listings stand; it's a whole other to argue that silliness that Justin only looks taller in a "few" shots. He looks taller in MOST shots and it's because he is.
Andrea said on 3/Sep/16
Lol, there are many photos where Obama looks comfortably taller and you think there's a big inch between them???

Of course you may well say Obama has some camera advantage in these photos but in the few photos where Justin looks taller... Well, that's just a very small difference!
Maybe videos are better for height comparisons at times: Click Here
I'd say they look very similar, Justin might be slightly taller, it is not impossible but i'd be surprised if it was more than half an inch, like Rob says!
Obama is a legit 6'1, i think everybody agree about that... I doubt Justin is really over 6'1.5, that really seems to be his best case scenario!
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 2/Sep/16
No Obama is still 6ft1 solid. There's less than 1in between them.
TJE said on 29/Aug/16
If Trudeau is a weak 6'2, then Obama's 6'0.5.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 28/Aug/16
Rob, maybe a weaker 6ft2?
Editor Rob: it would be natural for a guy like this to round up, than round down. I think a weak 6ft 2 probably is closer to the truth.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 1/Aug/16
Rob, is this guy really taller than Obama?
Editor Rob: possibly only half inch
heelshealheight said on 11/Jul/16
When it comes to the actual photos (check the ones where Obama's PR/photo team aren't 'enhancing' his height), especially the ones in which all the world leaders are comprised, Trudeau is significantly taller than Obama. Obama appears to have an issue with height. Albeit a tall man, Obama wants to appear taller than everyone else. Obama pulled the same stunt with the former Greek prime minister, Antonis Samaras. If you 'google' both their names, you'll notice that Obama is either sitting down or he's posing way in front of Samaras for a photo shoot. Obama deploys the same 'technique' when posing next to Trudeau (or actually posing in front of him, hence, the height perspective advantage). Obama is around 6ft1. Samaras and Trudeau are approximately the same height (circa 6ft2-6ft3). I could only imagine how Obama would desperately avoid posing next to Mark Rutte..
Andrea said on 7/Jul/16
I agree that 6' is probably too low for this guy but he certainly doesn't look 6'2 with Obama to me, MD!
There's more than one picture where he looks shorter than Obama, in other pictures they can look quite similar and in a very few photos he can look SLIGHTLY taller!
A fraction over 6'1 is not impossible but i'd say somewhere around 6'1 is much more realistic than 6'2...
ly said on 6/Jul/16
Rob did you really see a full inch beetwen him and Obama while Trudeau clearly had hair advantage.
Editor Rob: there might be a cm in reality, maybe Trudeau is 6ft 1.5 at most.
MD said on 4/Jul/16
Verona, you're wrong on this. While he's only marginally taller, he is clearly taller than President Obama, and it certainly isn't the other way around.
Verona Rios said on 1/Jul/16
Rob, you should downgrade him to his real 1.83 cm (6' ft). He isn't definitely as tall as 1.85 (6'1) Obama. He's more into the 1.83 range indeed. By the way, you know more than everyone, due to your experience in this field, that adding 5 centimenters to someone's height is common place in celebrities profiles.celebrities profiles.
Oscar said on 29/Jun/16
Can look taller when he has suspiciously large footwear. In standard shoes 6'1" Obama edges him out in quite a few shots.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 31/May/16
This sounds about right. He can go from looking barely over 6ft1 to near 6ft3.
jajamen said on 4/May/16
Rob, maybe 6'1.75 is best for him?
Lenny said on 27/Apr/16
looking at photos with Obama, don't think he walks around at the full 188cm, could perhaps stretch up for the measure
TJE said on 25/Apr/16
Looks a solid 6'2 with Obama
idkbut said on 24/Apr/16
probably tops out at 6'2" out of bed and rings in at 6'1.5" or so after a long day of bureaucratizing
Crane said on 24/Apr/16
No way he's a true 6'2, Barack ''185.5'' Obama edged him out in many pics!
truth said on 23/Apr/16
He is tall but could be more 6ft1.5 range.
JB said on 23/Apr/16
He's at least 6'2" if not taller. Wouldn't doubt that he's close to 6'3" out of bed height.

He does look a tall guy. On the news he looks a little taller than Obama. True 6'2"er

He doesn't look any taller than Obama in photos (sometimes Obama even looks a bit taller)...
Big Barack i guess is still growing! By the time he leaves the presidence, he'll be 6'7!!!
