After Meeting Canadian Prime Minister, Trump Talks Of Tweaking NAFTA

Why Trump and Netanyahu might keep Iran nuclear deal after all

Trump's order to temporarily halt entry into the U.S.by people from seven predominantly Muslim nations, which is tied up in court, might come up during his bilateral meeting with Trudeau.

The first daughter (who does not have an official position in the Trump White House) was an active participant in the meeting, and spoke of hoping to collaborate with task force members on confronting the challenges facing women in the workforce today. Then Last Week Tonight compiled a montage of Trump apparently trying to rip arms out of their sockets, you know, just in case everyone watching wasn't already aware of what a *big man* he wants to make sure we know he is.

Trudeau, age 45, and Trump, age 70, have vastly different outlooks of the world.

In Trudeau's response to the same question, the prime minister said though he was concerned with keeping Canada safe, "at the same time [Canada] will continue to pursue our tradition of openness towards immigration, refugees without compromising security".

"We have welcomed refugees from Syria we have been very successful and we take our responsibility of security very seriously", Trudeau said.

But Trump didn't get asked about that controversy, which has led most major news outlets' coverage for days. "The last thing Canadians expect is for me to come down and lecture another country", Trudeau said.

Trump, for his part, defended his immigration policies, both the now-blocked travel ban and deportations of immigrants all over the country. With a level of economic and social integration that is unmatched on the world stage, Canada and the United States will forever be a model example of how to be good neighbours.

"At the end of the day", Trudeau said at a joint press conference, "Canada and the USA will always remain each other's most essential partners".

Trump greeted Trudeau with a firm handshake as he arrived at the White House on a blustery morning.

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

The president and prime minister plan to announce creation of a permanent "United States-Canada Council for the Advancement of Women Business Leaders-Female Entrepreneurs". "And from Trump's point of view, it contributes to softening Trump's image, and he's got a problem with women". His commitment to gender balance in his cabinet earned headlines, when he appointed a cabinet that had exactly as many women as men. It was good optics for the prime minister, who has long supported equal treatment for women, and it was helpful to Trump if he wishes, over time, to be perceived as more than an ageing misogynist.
