Well, it turns out Kellyanne Conway wasn’t lying this time.
Prime Minister Justin Trudeau will meet with President Donald Trump at the White House in Washington, DC on Monday, February 13, the Prime Minister’s Office has confirmed with Daily Hive.
An email from the PMO to the Parliamentary Press Gallery said that the nation’s leaders “look forward to discussing the unique relationship between Canada and the United States of America and how we can continue to work hard for middle class Canadians and Americans, together.”
A release on Thursday from The White House said that Trump and Trudeau “look forward to a constructive conversation on strengthening the relationship.”
When reached earlier this week by Daily Hive, Press Secretary Cameron Ahmed said, “We are continuing to have constructive conversations, but no date to confirm at this stage.”
It seems those conversations went from constructive to conclusive very quickly.
Several Canadian Ministers, including Defence Minister Harjit Sajjan, Foreign Affairs Minister Chrystia Freeland, and Finance Minister Bill Morneau have been in Washington this week, presumably laying the groundwork for the meeting to come.
