Trudeau meets with Trump at NATO gathering
Prime Minister Trudeau and President Trump met in London, and a focus of their discussion was defence spending.
Trump says he is confident Canada will boost their spending on its military after the US president demanded all NATO allies spend two per cent of their gross domestic product on country defence.
Trudeau, however settled on 1.4 per cent of Canada’s GDP – a goal the Liberal government hopes to reach by 2024-25.
Despite failing to meet the US president’s demand, Trump said he was satisfied that Canada is getting up to a level he calls “quite acceptable.”
