After Meeting Canadian Prime Minister, Trump Talks Of Tweaking NAFTA

Trump Agrees to Agree with Whatever Solution Israel and Palestine Agree

It's true that the issue has been a pet project of Ivanka Trump, who pushed for maternity leave to be included in Trump's presidential campaign platform.

"We have a very outstanding trade relationship with Canada".

Calling relations between the USA and Canadian neighbors "pretty complex", Trudeau opened the press conference with assurances that "we won't always agree on everything" but will "navigate those complexities" and "remain allies and friends".

As they met Trudeau presented the president with a photo from when Trump met his father, then-Prime Minister Pierre Trudeau, in 1981.

Trump spiked the Trans-Pacific Partnership, an agreement that included Canada, and has repeatedly called for renegotiating the North American Free Trade Agreement, a move that could disrupt trade relations with America's second-largest trade partner. "On the southern border, for many, many years the transaction was not fair to the United States", he said.

The economic ties between America and its northern neighbor, who share the world's longest common border, run deep: three-quarters of Canada's exports go to the USA, and Canada is the top destination for exports from about 30 U.S. states.

Portland so far dodges snow storm, but rain could still turn
A developing storm will move up the coast on Thursday , spreading snow into Southern New England during the morning. A change to sleet, freezing rain and rain will occur Tuesday evening and overnight into early Wednesday .

But what really matters on trade happens behind closed doors, John Weekes, who served as Canada's chief negotiator on NAFTA, told Foreign Policy.

Canada's foreign minister warned the Trump administration on Wednesday that her country will retaliate if the USA applies new tariffs.

Ian Lee, a professor at the Sprott School of Business at Carleton University in Ottawa, said it would be "childish and juvenile and irresponsible" for anyone to think Trudeau's job is to go to Washington to preach Canadian values to Trump.

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

Some will be disappointed that Trudeau did not beat the drum over Trump's executive order banning travellers from seven mostly Muslim countries; instead, the prime minister said Canadians wouldn't expect him "to "lecture" another country about its policies (actually, some would)".

Trudeau will meet Paul Ryan, Speaker of the United States House of Representatives and Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell. Trudeau has been a vocal critic of Trump, going back to the early days of his candidacy. Trump promised to keep it in a "very special place". However, the scope and timing of the talks remain far from clear.
