The leaders of the United States and Canada held a joint news conference on Tuesday. The two men were cordial and optimistic. Both men spoke at length. Prime Minister Trudeau addressed the press corps with a bi-lingual presentation in both English and French, while President Trump spoke in English (the traditional approach for leaders of both countries.)
President Trump strongly defended his recent travel ban, which has been halted by court action in two states, Washington and Virginia. Prime Minister Trudeau made it clear in a tactful and indirect manner that he holds a different view, but made it clear that he didn’t visit the U.S. to lecture or condescend. He also stressed the importance of trade between the two countries for the Canadian economy.
