López Obrador said Trudeau had asked to speak with him and they planned to speak by phone on Monday. Late last week, Trudeau had not committed to attending the White House gathering.
López Obrador has come under heavy criticism at home for making his first foreign trip to meet with a president who has insulted Mexicans and doing it just months before U.S. elections.
But López Obrador has managed to maintain a cordial relationship with Trump and believes the start of the new trade agreement, negotiated from before the start of his administration is worth the trip.
López Obrador also said he would likely be tested for COVID-19 Monday afternoon before traveling to Washington Tuesday. He said he would share his results, if he had them, Tuesday morning.(AP) RUP RUP
