Trump and Trudeau Meet With Women Business Leaders

President Trump and Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau met with women entrepreneurs Monday to discuss issues facing women in the business world.

“We’re going to launch the Canada-United States Council for Advancement of Women Entrepreneurs,” Trump said at the event with Trudeau.

Trump drew on his past experience as the head of the Trump Organization to offer praise to women leaders: “I had so many women executives. They were phenomenal.”

Trump pointed out that women are the primary source of income in 40 percent of U.S. homes, emphasizing the importance of tackling obstacles in front of women in the business world.

Trudeau echoed this sentiment, saying that governments need to work to create more pathways for women to succeed in business.

“One of the things that I’ve been lucky enough to do over the past year in New York and Beijing and across Canada is sit down with women CEOs, women executives to talk about both their successes and the challenges they’re facing that are particular, but also how, of course, we create more paths to success,” Trudeau said.
