Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau said his government has been in discussions with the White House about convincing the U.S. not to put troops on the the border.

Deputy Chrystia Freeland said the specifics of what the U.S. is proposing is a question for American officials to answer and declined to say what the Trump administration is contemplating.
