Trudeau discussed the border with Trump on the phone

Prime Minister Justin Trudeau met on Thursday with US President Donald Trump.

The telephone conversation followed Justin Trudeau’s visit to the White House last week.

Mr. Trudeau thanked his counterpart for the positive and constructive discussions during his visit to Washington, it was learned in a statement sent by the Prime Minister’s Office.

The two politicians discussed cooperation at the border, but the statement does not say whether they mentioned the growing number of asylum seekers entering Canada from the United States.

The leaders also spoke on the softwood lumber issue, said Foreign Minister Chrystia Freeland.

“The Prime Minister talked about the softwood lumber issue and we continue to work and look for a solution,” the minister said.

MM. Trudeau and Trump talked about the G7 and G20 summits, which will be held in May and July, in addition to the working group on women entrepreneurs that they created with the daughter of US President Ivanka Trump.
