  • President Donald Trump said he rejected an offer to have a bilateral meeting with Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau.
  • During a press conference Wednesday, Trump pointed to Trudeau’s unwillingness to back down in North American Free Trade Agreement talks as why he rejected the meeting.
  • Trump also appeared to take a swipe at Canadian Minister of Foreign Affairs Chrystia Freeland, the country’s chief NAFTA negotiator.
  • The US is threatening to leave Canada out of a revised NAFTA, instead moving forward with a bilateral deal with Mexico.
