Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau visited the White House Monday for the first time since Donald Trump took office. In a joint news conference, Trump and Trudeau discussed trade, national security and immigration policy. During a White House press conference, neither president talked about oil pipelines, despite their joint support for building new ones. Last month, Trudeau welcomed the decision by Donald Trump to move ahead on the Keystone XL pipeline project. Trudeau has also come under fire by environmental activists for approving two major pipelines: Kinder Morgan’s $5 billion Trans Mountain pipeline and the $7.5 billion Enbridge Line 3 pipeline.
