Remarks by President Trump and Prime Minister Trudeau of Canada in Roundtable with Women Entrepreneurs

Cabinet Room

12:13 P.M. EST

PRESIDENT TRUMP:  I’m honored to be here with Prime Minister Trudeau, whose father I knew and respected greatly.  And he gave me a picture of myself and your father, and what a great picture.  I will keep that in very special place — at the Waldorf Astoria, together.

We’re going to launch the Canada-United States Council for Advancement of Women Entrepreneurs.  We have some of the great ones in this room — and business leaders.  We have so many great women leaders around the table today, and we’re going to go through your names exactly, because many of you I know, some of you I don’t, so I want to find out all about you.

Women, as you know, I can say that from my past life, I had so many women executives who were phenomenal — phenomenal — and really helped me a great deal in business.  So it was really fantastic.  They play a tremendously important role, women in our economy.  Women are the primary source of income in 40 percent of American households and households with children under the age of 18.  In order to create economic growth and lots of very good, well-paying jobs, we must ensure that our economy is a place where women can work and thrive.  And I think that’s happening in the United States much more so, and Ivanka is very much involved in this.  And I appreciate you being involved in it.   Continue reading “Remarks by President Trump and Prime Minister Trudeau of Canada in Roundtable with Women Entrepreneurs”
