ROUGH CUT (NO REPORTER NARRATION) U.S. President Donald Trump welcomed Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau to the White House on Monday. Trudeau has taken a low-key approach toward Trump, a Republican who campaigned on a pledge to toughen U.S. immigration policies and renegotiate the North American Free Trade Agreement among Canada, the United States and Mexico. Ahead of Monday's meeting with Trump at the White House - the first between the two leaders since Trump took office last month - Trudeau said he expected they would "find a lot of common ground." At a news conference on Friday, Trudeau also said he would look to "defend and demonstrate Canadian values," but do so "respectfully and not from an ideological standpoint." Trump's vow to renegotiate NAFTA has unnerved Canadian officials, even though he has singled out Mexico in his criticism of the free trade deal that he has called a U.S. job killer. Canada sends 75 percent of its exports to the United States.
