  • Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau came to Washington this week fuming about President Joe Biden’s proposed tax incentive to encourage U.S. consumers to buy American-made electric vehicles.
  • Notably, the leaders did not participate in a joint press conference that was previously characteristic of the North American Leaders’ Summit and has become customary during foreign leaders’ visits to the White House.
  • Trudeau was the most willing to engage with the press and other Washington circles, hosting a news conference after the summit at the Canadian Embassy and taking audience questions during an event at the Wilson Center think tank.
