Critics accused the prime minister of "mansplaining", "virtue-signalling" and making up words.

Millions of American workers would be harmed and their lives disrupted in the short term through a thickening of the border and greater uncertainty, even if Canada and the United States can finalize a deal down the road, he said.

"We are legitimately concerned about the future of NAFTA because the President has said he's not sure it's a good thing", Trudeau told David Axelrod on "The Axe Files", a podcast produced by the University of Chicago Institute of Politics and CNN. Updating NAFTA is a way to ensure the deal benefits a broader swath of people, the Liberals argue.

While 's comment was well-received at the town hall, it was criticized elsewhere.

Robert Nardelli, the former CEO of Chrysler and Home Depot, on President Trump's position on NAFTA and how it could impact the auto industry.

Among his desires is requiring more made-in-America auto production and shifting more government contracts to USA companies.

Trudeau told students and faculty members at the University of Chicago that his country agrees to modernize and improve the nearly 25-year-old North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA), but "will not be pushed into accepting any old deal".

It's 'un-American' and 'treasonous' to not applaud me, says Trump
Monday, as the stock market was tumbling, Trump sneered at Democrats who did not swoon over his State of the Union address . I've always been great with money, I've always been great with jobs, that's what I do.

Not unlike Obama, Trudeau's progressive policies make him an easy punching bag for the USA right.

The Guardian wrote that Rita Panahi, an Australian conservative commentator, said Trudeau's insertion of "peoplekind" was a way to "appease those desperate to find offence where none exists".

The two leaders are not scheduled to meet during Trudeau's four-day trip to the USA this week.

Some are just goofy, like his claim that we need to "rethink concepts as basic as space and time".

Before the event, he will sit down with several political leaders, including Illinois Gov. Bruce Rauner and Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel, who also served as Obama's first chief of staff.

Trudeau also acknowledged that while Canadians are actively engaged in American politics, people from the US know less about their neighbors to the north. Prime Minister Trudeau will shift his focus to the technology sector on Thursday as he heads to San Francisco, where he will meet with Mr. Bezos.
