President Donald Trump previewed his plans to adjust trade with Canada during his press conference with Prime Minister Justin Trudeau.

Trump said that although the United States had a good trade relationship with Canada, he would make it better.

“We’ll be tweaking it; we’ll be doing certain things that are going to benefit both of our countries,” Trump said during the press conference.
