OTTAWA – Prime Minister Justin Trudeau says Canada looks forward to working “very closely” with Trump, his administration and with the U.S. Congress in the coming years. “Canada has no closer friend, partner, and ally than the United States,” Trudeau said in a statement issued today Wednesday morning.
“We look forward to working very closely with President-elect Trump, his administration, and with the United States Congress in the years ahead, including on issues such as trade, investment, and international peace and security.”
Trudeau said the relationship between Canada and the U.S. serves as a model for the world.
Trump claimed his election victory as America’s 45th president early Thursday, after beating out Democratic rival Hillary Clinton.
After he won, Trump urged Americans to “come together as one united people” after a deeply divisive campaign.
