Biden Revives “Three Amigos” Summit

Canadian prime minister Justin Trudeau and Mexican president Andres Manuel López Obrador are at the White House for the summit, known informally as the "Three Amigos" summit.

President Biden is meeting with the leaders of Mexico and Canada today.  Canadian prime minister Justin Trudeau and Mexican president Andres Manuel López Obrador are at the White House for the summit, known informally as the “Three Amigos” summit.  The meeting hadn’t happened since 2016 because former President Trump shunned it.   The leaders are expected to announce a COVID-19 vaccine donation program, a new group on supply chain resiliency and a pledge to reduce emissions.  It’s also likely Trudeau and Obrador will also bring up concerns like proposed electric vehicle tax credits that favor U.S. manufacturers and Michigan’s desire to shut down the Enbridge Line Five Oil Pipeline.  President Biden will meet with each leader separately before a joint meeting involving all three.
