Trump meets with Mexican, Canadian and US leaders as preparations begin for first-ever North American summit

President Trump on Monday met with the leaders of Mexico, Canada and the United States to prepare for the countries’ first-ever North American summit.

The president welcomed the three countries’ leaders to the White House and said he planned to “make a big deal” with them to achieve results in the relationship between the three countries.

White House spokesman Raj Shah said Trump met with Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, Mexican President Enrique Pena Nieto and President Donald Trump “to start planning for the first North American Leaders Summit.”

“We’re very much looking forward to the leaders, coming together in order to achieve a new, positive agenda in the relationship between our nations,” Shah said.

Asked about Trump’s assertion that Mexico, and Mexico specifically, is not paying for the border wall, Trudeau responded, “I think it’s important to recognize we are working together in the G20 that we are meeting next week in Argentina to set a global framework for border and trade management, so we’re going to get together and look at best ideas for doing that.”

Trump has repeatedly insisted the U.S. intends to “make a big deal” with Mexico at the meeting to address issues, including trade and border security.
