Trudeau, Trump find common ground on economy but remain at odds over immigration
Prime Minister Justin Trudeau and U.S. President Donald Trump found common ground on key issues such as boosting commerce and military co-operation, but the two leaders staked out very different stands on immigration policy.
During a joint news conference following the pair's debut meeting, Trudeau carved out Canada's position as open and welcoming to refugees and immigrants without compromising security, while Trump defended his own hard-line approach to close the door.
Asked whether he believes the northern border of the U.S. is secure, Trump said, "You can never be totally confident."
Trudeau said Canadians and Americans have a long history of working, fighting and dying together, but there are times when they take a different approach.
"The last thing Canadians expect is for me to come down and lecture another country on how they choose to govern themselves," he said. "My role, our responsibility, is to continue to govern in such a way that reflects Canadians' approach and be a positive example in the world." - Read More,CBC
