US President Donald Trump and Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau have agreed to temporarily close their shared border to “non-essential traffic” on Wednesday.
US President in his tweet said “We will be, by mutual consent, temporarily closing our northern border with Canada.”
He said trade would not be affected. Canada relies on the US for approximately 75% of its exports.
Both countries had already issued sweeping travel bans but had maintained exemptions for each other.
Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau at a press conference, “I want to be clear though that essential travel will still continue. No matter who you are or what you do, this is a time when you should be focused on your health and that of your neighbours. Not: are you going to lose your job, are you going to run out of money for food or medications.”
