Trump and Trudeau meet at White House

Trump says the United States will be "tweaking" its trade relationship with Canada, stopping short of calling for a major realignment in a development likely to please visiting Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau.

Trudeau, sometimes speaking in French, praised the trade pact, and said he had "productive" discussions with Trump, including the topic of "cross-border commerce".

That message was a clear one: The relationship between our two great countries matters. "We're going to make it fair, but.so that everybody is happy". Canadians are concerned about what Trump may do to the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA), an agreement Trump has vowed to renegotiate. "We affirm the importance of building on this existing strong foundation for trade and investment and further deepening our relationship". It eliminated most tariffs between the three countries, as well as other trade barriers.

Several reporters noted the absence of a question about Flynn, which some journalists such as ABC's Jon Karl attempted to ask Trump as he left the press conference.

Donald Trump gives up on Patriots 'friends' after halftime
LeGarrette Blount is the team's short-yardage back, but the Patriots made a decision to not substitute by the goal line. The New England Patriots are slated to take on the Atlanta Falcons for Super Bowl 51 Sunday at NRG Stadium in Houston .

"American and Canadian troops have gone to battle together, fought wars together and forged the special bonds that come when two nations have shed their blood together - which we have", Trump said, reading from a prepared statement. Meanwhile, headlines about refugees fleeing the USA into Canada continued to dominate the news cycle, putting more pressure on Ottawa to answer critics calling on it to scrap a border agreement that automatically prevents asylum seekers from the US from seeking refuge in Canada.

Whereas Trudeau has dramatically increased the intake of Syrian refugees to Canada, Trump paused all Syrian refugees from entering America and attempted to temporarily ban non-Americans from seven majority-Muslim countries from entering the country. Trudeau responded to the ban by tweeting a message that welcomed migrants to Canada.

"We think about the unique challenges that female entrepreneurs and females small business owners are confronted with each and every day", Ms. Trump said. Some of Trudeau's energy policies are controversial among those who wish to see Canada lead the way in climate change mitigation, and the pipeline construction has always been a disputed issue due to its high environmental impact, contribution to an ongoing dependence on fossil fuels, and low economic benefit for the US. President Trump did enter unchartered territory for a Republican when he advocated for six weeks of paid maternity leave on the campaign trail, but his proposal could stand to borrow some elements of Canada's leave policy. We have the world's largest shared, unsecured border.

Women's advancement is "not a women's issue", said a White House official after the roundtable.
