Trudeau said at a joint news conference with US President Joe Biden in Ottawa that the government's concerns are around security and access to information that the Chinese government could have to government phones.

Trudeau, 51, has three children, two of whom are teenagers. His government announced its ban last month, saying the platform has an "unacceptable" risk to privacy and security.
