Meet the Press is known for its interviews with prominent figures. Most recently, the series interviewed Canadian prime minister Justin Trudeau, who spoke about relations between Canada and the US. While he said Canada is a “welcoming” and “polite” place, he added that the country is strict when it comes to its relationship with President Trump, particulary when it comes to the topic of trade policies.
Last Thursday, Trump’s Secretary of Commerce announced that the US would be imposing heavy tarrifs on Mexican, European, and Canadian aluminum and imports. Speaking on Meet the Press, Trudeau said, “The idea that we are somehow a national security threat to the United States is quite frankly insulting and unacceptable.”
Could Canada respond to Trump’s tariffs by giving the US a taste of their own medicine? Trudeau says, “We’re putting the same kinds of tariffs exactly on steel and aluminum coming from the United States into Canada to be directly reciprocal… But we’re also putting a number of tariffs on consumer goods, finished products for which Canadians have easy alternatives.”
Meet the Press was the first television program on which a sitting US president appeared– that president was Gerald Ford during a broadcast on November 9, 1975. To date, the program has been hosted by 12 different moderators. Since 2014, that moderator has been Chuck Todd.
Todd, 46, is the Political Director for NBC News. Before taking on the job at Meet the Press, he was the Chief White House correspondent for the network and the host of The Daily Rundown on MSNBC.
Todd attended George Washington University from 1990 to 1994, where he majored in political science. He received his honorary Doctor of Humane Letters degree from Marymount University as a response to his work in journalism. Today, Todd lives in Arlington, Virginia, with his wife, Kristian Denny Todd, and the couple’s two children.
