Following his 19-second handshake with Japanese Prime Minister Shinzō Abe and whatever that was with Canadian PM Justin Trudeau, we've rounded up all the times that Donald Trump made an awkward first impression. Trudeau seemed to be struggling to keep a straight face at times as his American counterpart spoke. If you were looking to learn anything about the big stories Trump is facing now-calls for National Security Advisor Michael Flynn to be fired over his secret discussions with Russian Federation or Trump's own national security debacle over the weekend, holding sensitive discussions in front of an audience of Mar-a-Lago members-forget about it. Flynn was in attendance at the press conference on Monday.
"And part of the reason we've been successful in doing that over the past year, welcoming close to 40,000 Syrian refugees, is because we have been coordinating with our allies, United States, and around the world to demonstrate that security comes very seriously to us and that's something that we continue to deal with". "Diversity is our strength #WelcomeToCanada". "The last thing Canadians expect is for me to come down and lecture another country", Trudeau said.
He said his role is to govern in a way that reflects Canadians' approach "and be a positive example in the world".
Earlier he did say Canada believed it could maintain an "openness" to immigrants and refugees "without compromising security".
Trump has followed the dictum that good fences make good neighbors - vowing to increase tariffs on imports and build a wall on the Mexican border and trying to ban migrants from several Muslim-majority nations.
Trump has said he wants to discuss his plan to overhaul the North American Free Trade Agreement, which involves the United States, Canada and Mexico.

He is also suspended for Turkey's World Cup qualifying match at home against Finland on March 24. "Bayer 04 has nothing to do with the incidents at that time", he said.
Calling relations between the USA and Canadian neighbors "pretty complex", Trudeau opened the press conference with assurances that "we won't always agree on everything" but will "navigate those complexities" and "remain allies and friends".
Soon after Trump put a hold on allowing refugees into the United States and temporarily banned travellers from seven Muslim-majority countries in an executive order on January 27, citing the need to head off attacks by Islamist militants, the Canadian prime minister took to Twitter to say refugees were welcome in Canada.
Journalists quizzed the two leaders over their opposing stances on refugees, after bilateral talks at the White House.
"The key concern for both of these men is increasing employment in both of their countries that was obviously front and centre for Donald Trump in his campaign and that is a central plank in Justin Trudeau's domestic agenda".
Freeland, following meetings with Secretary of State Rex Tillerson and House Speaker Paul Ryan, said Canada won't shy away from a fight but strongly opposes tariffs, Bloomberg reported.
