Trump welcomed Trudeau to the Oval Office Wednesday at the start of a new round of talks over NAFTA. The U.S. president tells reporters it's a "tough negotiation."

Trudeau says the two allies have a "good partnership" and says that an "ongoing, constructive relationship" between the two leaders is really important.

The two leaders are expected to discuss NAFTA and other trade issues.

Trudeau is also expected to raise the Trump administration's recent decision to hit Canadian manufacturer Bombardier with punishing tariffs on its C Series airliner. U.S.-based Boeing alleges that Bombardier gets unfair subsidies from the Canadian and British governments.

The Canadian prime minister is scheduled to visit Mexico on Thursday.
