Trudeau: ‘Our Economy Is Very Dependent on the Relationship with the U.S.’

Monday at a joint news conference with President Donald Trump, Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau stressed the economic relationship Canadians have with “the United States.”

Trudeau said through a translator, “Thank you for your question. It is a real concern for many Canadians because we know that our economy is very dependent on the relationship with the United States. Goods and services do cross the border each way every single day. This means millions of jobs for Canadians, good jobs for Canadians. So we are always focusing on these jobs, but there are also good jobs, millions of jobs, in the United States that depend on those relationships between our two countries.”
