On Thursday, US President Joe Biden hosted Canadian and Mexican leaders for the first North American summit in five years in an effort to revitalize cooperation that has been overshadowed by disagreements over Biden’s “Buy American” agenda and immigration. Biden met separately with Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau and Mexican President Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador at the White House, and then all three met together. The summit was weighed down by disagreements over the auto industry, Biden’s “Buy American” policies, and a Mexican electricity bill. The US and Canada appeared to be at odds over a US proposal for tax breaks on US-made electric vehicles, which Ottawa claims violates trade agreements.
