Trump speech admires Canada’s “merit-based immigration”

Donald Trump addressed the US Congress Tuesday night and his remarks had references to Canada in several spots. The president ventured a surprising (to many in the US) reference to his desire for overall immigration reform. It is something Republicans and Democrats say is needed but the details on how they might collaborate seems to elude them. Trump spoke admiringly of immigration systems in “Canada, Australia and many others” that were based on the merit of the newcomers. Elsewhere, Mr. Trump returned his daughter’s campaign to assist and encourage women entrepreneurs, a scheme in which she enlisted Justin Trudeau. Lastly, Trump spoke again of his plan to see the Keystone XL pipeline constructed. Canadian Press
