Last week, President Trump invited Mexican President Andrés Manuel López Obrador and Justin Trudeau to Washington for a formal signing of the United States–Mexico–Canada Agreement (USMCA) – the world’s biggest trade deal.

Trudeau didn’t think it was important enough to attend and declined Trump’s invitation.

True North’s Leo Knight has more on Trudeau’s latest diplomatic blunder.

We’re asking readers, like you, to make a contribution in support of True North’s fact-based, independent journalism.

Unlike the mainstream media, True North isn’t getting a government bailout. Instead, we depend on the generosity of Canadians like you.

How can a media outlet be trusted to remain neutral and fair if they’re beneficiaries of a government handout? We don’t think they can.

This is why independent media in Canada is more important than ever. If you’re able, please make a tax-deductible donation to True North today. Thank you so much.
