Trudeau says approach to Trump will be to find common ground on trade

Prime Minister Justin Trudeau says his approach in a sit-down with U.S. President Donald Trump today is to find common ground.

Trudeau and Trump are to meet as round four of talks to revamp NAFTA get underway.

Trudeau says he wants to emphasize ways the two countries can work together to improve the lives of their citizens.

Trump has repeatedly signalled he's rather rip up the deal than renegotiate it, casting a pall over the talks.

Key issues up for discussion this week include government procurement, remedies for trade disputes and on Saturday, what could be contentious talks over agriculture.

Trudeau told the Fortune Most Powerful Women Summit in D.C. last night that it's also important to make the deal more progressive to ensure it benefits the widest swath of people.
