Ian Explains: Biden-Trudeau summit well worth the wait
April 11, 2023
Joe Biden and Justin Trudeau finally met recently, two years after Biden came to office. The good personal vibes, as expected, were great, and the state of the US-Canada relationship is strong, though not perfect, Ian Bremmer explains on GZERO World.
The US president and the Canadian PM signed an agreement on asylum seekers, but other, thornier issues still need to be worked out.
One of them is Haiti. Biden wants Canada to lead stabilization efforts there, but Trudeau is reluctant to put Canadian boots on the ground.
Beyond that: trade, security, climate change, Russia in Ukraine, and, of course, China.
