Donald Trump To Meet Canadian PM Justin Trudeau Amid Tensions Over Trade

Donald Trump To Meet Canadian PM Justin Trudeau Amid Tensions Over Trade

'President Trump and Prime Minister Trudeau look forward to a constructive conversation on strengthening the relationship between our two nations, ' the White House said in a statement.

The two leaders have spoken by phone but haven't yet met face-to-face. Traditionally, the USA president makes Canada the destination of his first official visit, although former president George W. Bush first travelled to Mexico in 2001.

The Liberal government of Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, which took power in late 2015, is more prepared to criticize Israel than the former Conservative administration, which adopted a resolutely pro-Israel policy. "Monday, I'll meet @RealDonaldTrump in DC to keep working for that goal", Trudeau said on Twitter.

Canadian Foreign Minister Chrystia Freeland said after a meeting with new US Secretary of State Rex Tillerson in Washington on Wednesday that her country was opposed to the introduction of new tariffs.

Trudeau has expressed vastly different views to Trump on immigration, stressing Canada's desire to host refugees. He has said that the 1994 North American Free Trade Agreement has harmed American workers and that he wants to renegotiate the deal to get better terms for the United States.

Last month, though, Trump cleared the way for TransCanada Corp's proposed Keystone XL pipeline from the Alberta oil sands to US refineries. The two leaders are slated to play golf Saturday in Florida.

This new ban had led to the rise of new found fear for Canadian citizens travelling to the U.S. Roughly 35,000 Canadians have dual citizenship with the U.S of one of the seven countries that were banned.
