In a speech Friday night at the Ronald Reagan Presidential Library & Museum in Simi Valley, Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau said the prosperous benefits of the North American Free Trade Agreement should be extended to the less economically advantaged, a position he said President Donald Trump agrees with.

Trudeau promoted his country's fast-track employment permit for certain workers, dubbed the "global skills strategy visa".

Trudeau was not injured, a Canadian government source said.

Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau picked up promises of investments and jobs during his first official visit to San Francisco, where he promoted Canada as a destination for California technology firms frustrated by uncertain USA immigration laws.

John Heubusch, executive director of the Reagan library and institute, said Reagan would have likely agreed with Trump on the idea of putting American interests at the forefront of negotiations, but would diverge on the idea that the USA economy could make a go of it absent trade.

After Justin's Chicago stop, he will move on to San Francisco where he is slated to meet with local business leaders as well as entrepreneurs, according to abc7. Jerry Brown and Lt. Gov. Gavin Newsom, both Democrats. He also met with Amazon Chief Executive Jeff Bezos, who's considering locations for a second headquarters.

As a candidate, Trump has called NAFTA a job-killing disaster. In 1988, Reagan and then-Prime Minister Brian Mulroney signed the first free trade agreement between the two countries - a precursor to NAFTA. Toronto, which has created a government-sponsored innovation hub for tech companies, was the only one of several Canadian cities that made the shortlist.

Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau came with an unambiguous message on his latest United States visit: the North American Free Trade Agreement is a success that needs to be modernized, not abandoned.

"The conversations I've had across this country over these past few days have been extremely positive", the prime minister said on Saturday morning.

In brief remarks to reporters before meeting with Newsom, Trudeau said it was good to talk about all the issues that bind California and Canada.

The Canadian leader had earlier visited Chicago and San Francisco on his three-day USA swing, and was set to meet Saturday with Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti, before returning to Ottawa.
