Trump, Trudeau set to meet Monday in Washington

Trump’s overall approval rating among Canadian voters peaked at 28 per cent during the 10 days that Mainstreet polled while 52 per cent of Canadians gave Trudeau a thumbs up for the job he is doing

Freeland met her USA counterpart Rex Tillerson and reportedly used the occasion to object to a hypothetical tariff on Canadian goods.

U.S. President Donald Trump will welcome Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau to the White House on Monday for their first talks, the White House said Thursday.

Canadian Foreign Affairs Minister Chrystia Freeland, Finance Minister Bill Morneau, and Defence Minister Harjit Sajjan all visited Washington this week.

Trump has said he wants to renegotiate a better deal for the U.S.by revamping the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA) that covers trade between the U.S., Canada and Mexico.

The Mexican statement said that in his meetings with Tillerson and U.S. Secretary of Homeland Security John Kelly on Wednesday, Videgaray would address issues including the protection of Mexicans in the United States, migration, and security and border infrastructure. The read-out noted the two leaders looked forward to meeting "soon". Neither man has been confirmed yet by the U.S. Senate.

Of the 50 USA states, 35 count Canada as their leading export market.

The leader of Canada is typically among the first foreign leaders to meet with new USA presidents.

This kind of talk squares with current prevailing sentiments among Canadians. Congress has tried a number of times to make reforms over the years and under different administrations.

Overall, despite the uncertainty hanging over trade relations, Freeland was positive about this week's visit, underlining that Tillerson "is someone who knows Canada very well...and I think he will be a good partner for us".
