Donald Trump not 'totally confident' about the security of US-Canada border

Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau is to have his first meeting with US President Donald Trump in Washington on Monday.

As such, the president and I have agreed to the creation of the Canada-United States Council for advancement of woman entrepreneurs and business leaders.

Despite that, ahead of the their meeting Trudeau said he expected "to find a lot of common ground" with Trump.

Ivanka Trump attended her first White House policy meeting on Monday since her father, President Donald Trump, was sworn in almost a month ago.

Trump meanwhile defended his controversial move to close U.S. borders to refugees and citizens of seven mostly-Muslim nations, saying "we can not let the wrong people in".

The two went on to hold a private lunch in the White House.

"I think this may be the most tense of the in-person meeting with heads of state", TheStreet's Jim Cramer said on CNBC's "Squawk on the Street" Monday.

Like Freeland, he noted that 35 USA states list Canada as major export market. Trump's criticism has been directed at Mexico, but Canadians fear a renegotiation of the trade agreement could also sideswipe its trade relationship with the United States. The good news is, Trudeau managed to escape Trump's handshake of doom!

On the other hand, past comments from the then-presidential candidate about women often overshadowed verbal overtures to women in the workforce - most notably leaked audio from a hot mic moment in 2005 exposed Trump as saying he could grab women "by the p--y".

"It's a smart thing if Canada proposed this", said Nelson Wiseman, a professor at the University of Toronto.

When asked if a more confrontational approach toward a U.S. President with a fragile ego and a reputation for vindictiveness was really the best approach to protecting Canadian interests, Angus said he knows from personal experience that it is the only way to deal with a bully.
