Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau played up the similarities between President Donald Trump’s policy objectives and his own, saying before a White House meeting Wednesday the two leaders always managed to find common ground.

Speaking at an event in Washington late Tuesday, Trudeau also reiterated his stance that adding “progressive elements” to trade deals, such as labor and environmental protections, would help reassure people the benefits of free trade will be more evenly distributed.
