Trump Snubs Trudeau At UN

Trump snubs Trudeau: White house says president is too busy to meet Canada’s leader – even though British, French and Egyptian counterparts all get private talks

President Donald Trump has set aside time for talks at the United Nations General Assembly with Egypt’s dictator, the British prime minister, and the French president and yet he won’t have time this week to meet with Canada’s Justin Trudeau.

Trudeau is at the annual gathering in New York City, where he’s due to deliver a speech on Tuesday morning at the Council on Foreign Relations just before Trump’s United Nations remarks.

An informal chat with Trump is all that Trudeau could hope for, however, as the U.S. on Monday confirmed that a meeting with the Canadian prime minister is not on Trump’s schedule.
