President Donald Trump says he is looking to work with Canada’s Prime Minister Justin Trudeau to ease access to capital for female entrepreneurs.

Trump and Trudeau are taking part in a roundtable discussion about women in the workforce as part of their first official meeting.

Trump says the “system is not working so well for entrepreneurs” – particularly for women.

Trudeau adds that having “women in business is a powerful leverage for success.”

Trump’s daughter, Ivanka Trump, attended the meeting and helped recruit participants and set the agenda.

The two countries will announce a joint task force and are expected to discuss issues like child care and maternity leave.
