Canada has also seen a steady increase in refugees seeking help in recent weeks after being denied asylum in the USA or concluding that Trump's travel ban has created unwelcome and even unsafe conditions for them. "Any impediment to trade would have an asymmetric impact, being felt much more in Canada than in the U.S".
Note that President Trump has loudly criticized the North American Free Trade Agreement, in which Canada is closely involved, but said today that Mexico is the real problem with NAFTA.
For his part, Trump appeared to respond with relative gentleness, declaring "we are going to have a great relationship with Canada" and adding the leaders intend to make things "a lot easier for trade". "I'm just doing what I said I would do when we won by a very very large Electoral College vote".
"For too long, Americans have been forced to accept trade deals that put the interests of insiders and the Washington elite over the hard-working men and women of this country", the White House said in a statement withdrawing from the Trans-Pacific Partnership.
The economic ties between America and its northern neighbor, who share the world's longest common border, run deep: three-quarters of Canada's exports go to the USA, and Canada is the top destination for exports from about 30 U.S. states.
The neighbouring leaders, polar opposites in almost every way, were taking up the subject in their first face-to-face meeting on Monday, with Trudeau eager to build a relationship with the new U.S. president.
The positive tone on trade struck by Prime Minister Justin Trudeau and U.S. President Donald Trump is providing some measure of comfort within Corporate Canada.
He told reporters "both President Trump and I got elected on commitments to support the middle class" as the Canadian prime minister then emphasized how important "the continued effective integration of our two economies" was.
As Trump spoke about his desire to "let people that love our country in" while not letting the "wrong people" in, Trudeau's face was expressionless.
Trudeau tweeted last week the USA and Canada need to work together to strengthen the middle class.
"When I was campaigning, I said it's not a good situation", he said.
"We will see some very, very obvious results", he said.
Trump said that he "knew" he would win.
