President Donald Trump met with Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau for the first time Monday, when Trudeau arrived at the White House for talks with the President.
Trump met Trudeau at the door in a warm greeting, although the media is all abuzz with questions over how well the two will get along, as Trudeau’s liberal policies and Trump’s conservative policies are considered “polar opposites.”
Canada has reportedly already admitted a whopping 40,000 Syrian refugees, and recently spoke out against Trump’s executive order cracking down on the refugee program and his temporary ban on citizens from seven middle eastern countries.
Trudeau is a huge supporter of free trade. The Associated Press reported that over 75 percent of Canada’s exports go to the United States, and Canadians are concerned that Trump’s re-negotiation of NAFTA could hurt them.
Trump and Trudeau are also expected to hold a roundtable discussion about women in the workplace, and officials have stated that they plan to introduce a new task force titled the “United States Canada Council for the Advancement of Women Business Leaders-Female Entrepreneurs.”
Ivanka Trump is reported to be involved in setting the agenda and recruiting participants for the project.
President Trump and Trudeau are expected to hold a joint news conference at 2 p.m. ET.
