Joe Biden will hold his first bilateral meeting with the Canadian prime minister, Justin Trudeau, on Tuesday, the White House said on Saturday.

The meeting, which will be virtual due to the coronavirus pandemic, will aim to elevate collaboration on shared concerns at a time when the relationship between the close allies has been strained by Biden’s decision to block the Canada-backed Keystone XL pipeline.

In a statement, the White House said Biden and his cabinet will also meet virtually with Canadian ministers on a range of issues.

The White House press secretary, Jen Psaki, said it would be “an opportunity for the two leaders to review joint efforts in areas of mutual interest such as the Covid-19 response, climate change and the economic ties that bind our countries, as well as the deep people-to-people bonds we share.

“The president will highlight the strong and deep partnership between the United States and Canada as neighbors, friends and Nato allies,” she said.

Trudeau called the US-Canada relationship “one of the strongest and deepest friendships between any two countries” and said: “It is built on common values, strong ties between our people and a shared geography … We will work together to end the Covid-19 pandemic and support people in both our countries.”

Trudeau was the first world leader to congratulate Biden after the November election and Canada is looking forward to turning the page on the Donald Trump era, when relations between the two countries became somewhat strained.

While Biden has had at-times lengthy calls with foreign leaders, his Canada meeting will extend to lower-level meetings between cabinet ministers, as have interactions with Mexico and several European allies.

Biden revoked a permit for the Keystone pipeline, which would transport 830,000 barrels a day of carbon-intensive heavy crude from Alberta to Nebraska, on his first day in office last month, as part of a flurry of executive orders aimed at curbing climate change.

Trudeau has said Canada will seek exemptions to a US effort to ensure federal agencies buy US-produced goods. The US move could hurt Canada, given how tightly the two nations’ economies are integrated.

The two countries are in a shared standoff with China after Canada’s detention of Meng Wanzhou, chief financial officer of China’s Huawei Technologies on a US arrest warrant.

Beijing detained and charged two Canadians with espionage after the detention of Meng, who remains under house arrest.

Former White House doctor opens up on Biden’s ’embarrassing struggle’ through press conference

Rep. Ronny Jackson (R-Texas) said Biden muddled through his first press conference as president with the help of his “biggest fans,” the White House press corps.

After President Joe Biden’s difficult press conference Thursday following his stumbles up the stairs of Air Force One just days earlier, concerns over the new president’s health continue to loom large among Americans, including former White House physician Rep. Ronny Jackson (R-Texas), who called Biden’s recent struggles a “major red flag.”

Jackson served as White House physician under former presidents George W. Bush, Barack Obama and Donald Trump. He won election to the House in 2020 and now represents the 13th District of Texas. Following Biden’s shaky press conference reliant on “cheat-sheet” notes, the physician took to social media to share his view of Biden’s declining health.

“This ‘Press Brief’ was EMBARRASSING! Not only for Biden, but for the liberal press corps as well,” Jackson wrote on Twitter

. “He struggled to make it through, despite the fact that he followed a strict order of reporters to call on and was reading what appeared to be prepared answers from the podium.”

Earlier this week, Jackson spoke as a former White House physician about the individual health preconditions necessary to serve successfully as president.

“I’ve seen what it takes physically AND mentally to do the job,” he tweeted. “I can tell you right now that the way Biden is hiding from the public is a MAJOR red flag. Something’s not right!”

Jackson asserted that the press seem to be Biden’s “biggest fans” as reporters refrained from asking the president about tough topics such as China’s accountability for the virus and the criminal investigations into his son Hunter.

White House Confirms Biden Will Sign Executive Order on Gun Control

President Joe Biden will sign executive orders on gun control in the near future, confirmed White House press secretary Jen Psaki on Friday.

When asked about the prospect of taking executive action, Psaki responded with, “Yes.”

“I can’t give you an exact time frame, in part, because they have to go through a review process, which is something that we do from here,” Psaki told reporters at the White House.

“I will note that when we, when the president was the vice president in the Obama-Biden administration, he helped put in place 23 executive actions to combat gun violence,” she added. “It’s one of the levers that we can use that any federal government, any president, can use to help address the prevalence of gun violence and address community safety around the country.”

On Thursday, during the president’s first news conference, he hinted at taking action but pivoted to his infrastructure agenda items.

Earlier this week, Vice President Kamala Harris indicated that Congress should pass gun control legislation but stopped short of saying Biden would issue an executive order.

“It is time for Congress to act,” the vice president said in an interview with CBS News on Wednesday. “It’s simply about saying we need reasonable gun safety laws. There is no reason why we have assault weapons on the streets of a civil society. They are weapons of war. They are designed to kill a lot of people quickly,” she added.

But gun rights organizations such as the National Rifle Association and Gun Owners for America have raised red flags about Biden’s proposals, arguing they would violate the Constitution’s Second Amendment.

“In an apocalyptic environment where the filibuster has been eradicated, you can expect to see a Democrat Congress ramming through gun bans, gun owner registration, and more,” Gun Owners for America said days after Biden’s inauguration.

Meanwhile, it’s possible that courts could overturn any potential executive rule. This week, the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 6th Circuit ruled that a federal ban on bump stocks handed down by the ATF is likely illegal, while ordering that the ban be placed on hold.
