Trudeau after meeting Trump: Canada will continue to welcome refugees

Trudeau after meeting Trump: Canada will continue to welcome refugees

The much-anticipated meeting between President Donald Trump and Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau yielded a polite insistence on mutual respect, but with potential bilateral rifts simmering just beneath the surface.

On Monday, Trump had his first face-to-face meeting at the White House with Trudeau.

After a series of meetings, Trump and Trudeau released a joint statement, in which they stressed their "profound shared economic interests" and promised to "work tirelessly to provide growth and jobs for both countries".

Ivanka looked happy to sit next to JT, but then again, who wouldn't?

The comments came after federal immigration authorities arrested hundreds of people in 11 states, provoking fears in immigrant communities of an effort by the Trump administration to accelerate deportations. "On the southern border, for many, many years the transaction was not fair to the United States". Canada and the US will launch a task force on the issue, titled the United States Canada Council for the Advancement of Women Business Leaders-Female Entrepreneurs, the Associated Press reports. Justin Trudeau, for instance, can connect with him on infrastructure spending, European leaders on coping with mass migrations.

"We just began discussions", Mr. Trump said, adding that they have "wonderful ideas on immigration" and "very strong, very tough ideas on the tremendous problem that we have on terrrorism".

Trump and Trudeau also have a "working lunch" prior to a news conference at which trade is again expected to become a major topic. I would say it is not.

The US president also said the United States will be "tweaking" its trade relationship with Canada.

"The last thing Canadians expect is for me to come down and lecture another country about how they choose to govern themselves".

But the Canadian PM stopped short of criticising Trump's travel ban.

The president said that the USA has problems all over the Middle East and in "every corner of the globe".

Yes, Trudeau did eventually shake Trump's hand.

"We're dealing with someone who has abused the Mexican president and the Australian prime minister", Robert Bothwell, a professor at the University of Toronto, told the Associated Press, referring to Trump.

And, Kirton says, Pierre Trudeau and other G7 leaders were successful, up to a point, in finding ways to absorb Reagan into their club.
