Justin Trudeau and Donald Trump discuss “black lives matter” and trade

Justin Trudeau, the Prime Minister of Canada, in a speech said that he had discussed a lot of matters with Donald Trump, the President of the United States. He did that on Monday on a phone call with the president. Amongst a lot of those things was the Black Lives Matter movement. Other discussions involved were the new North American Free Trade Agreement. Other topics were aluminum tariffs and the issue of China. He also specified that he talked about the two Canadian detainees in the United States.


Justin Trudeau, who is otherwise a very culturally progressive man, has been facing criticism recently for racism. He is being condemned for wearing “brownface” thrice, one of which was a party in 2001. The costume is considered highly racist and offending. He even wore the costume during a cultural grant on a trip to India.

Trade interruptions

The White House was not prompt in releasing the readout of the call. Justin Trudeau turned down an invitation to the White House due to the COVID-19 pandemic. As opposed to that, the Mexican president Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador visited the White House. This was one in order to execute the smooth implementation of the US-Mexico-Canada Trade deal.

Trudeau also spoke about how he entreated Donald Trump. He requested him not to sanction contemporary aluminum tariffs to the already slowed down Canadian exports. He pressed upon how the pandemic has already deranged the usual manufacturing processes and supply chains. This has caused evident disruption in the sector of aluminum. It is, however, starting to realign itself.

“I impressed upon him that it would be a shame to see tariffs come in between our two countries at a time where we’re celebrating NAFTA, at a time where we want our businesses or manufacturers to get going as quickly as possible,” Trudeau said.
