Canada's Trudeau arrives in Washington to meet with Trump
« on: February 13, 2017, 06:50:49 pm »
WASHINGTON (AP) -- Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, a polar opposite to Donald Trump in almost every way, joined the new U.S. president at the White House Monday keen to build a relationship that doesn't threaten trade.

Trudeau arrived on a blustery morning, and Trump greeted him with a firm handshake. The neighboring leaders are expected to talk about free trade in their first face-to-face meeting.

Trudeau and Trump will also participate in a roundtable discussion about women in the workplace.

The prime minister's plane landed at Dulles airport after heavy winds forced a change from Andrews Air Force Base.

Trudeau, age 45, and Trump, age 70, have vastly different outlooks of the world.

What an idiotic thing to say. Was he supposed to greet him with a limp handshake?

"It's a smart thing if Canada proposed this," said Nelson Wiseman, a professor at the University of Toronto. "It takes attention off of NAFTA. And from Trump's point of view, it contributes to softening Trump's image, and he's got a problem with women."
He only has a problem with them when they don't want him groping and making rude remarks about them.
