We do have a Trade Deficit with Canada, as we do with almost all countries (some of them massive). P.M.

A new Wall Street Journal report sheds light on the sometimes uncomfortable interactions Trump shared with Tillerson, including a November state dinner in China in which the president implored the secretary to eat a Caesar salad.
