Ring of Fire’s Farron Cousins discusses this. “That’s what weak, dishonest Justin Trudeau did”, said Navarro, referring to the joint press conference that is routinely held at the end of the annual events.
Between hosting the leaders of the world’s largest economies at the G7 Summit in Quebec, trying to look commanding in the face of potentially economy-crippling tariffs and serving as Donald Trump’s latest punching bag, Justin Trudeau has had a pretty rough weekend. “On (Trump’s) comments, I’m going to stay focused on defending jobs for Canadians and supporting Canadian interests”. This is from a Tweet.
Trump said Trudeau’s comments at the final press conference at the tumultuous G7 summit in Charlevoix that Canada “will not be pushed around” on the issue of punitive USA tariffs on steel and aluminum will cost Canadians “a lot of money”. Trump’s steel tariffs and threats to tax auto imports, among other protectionist policies, have strained relations with America’s closest allies, including Canada, with whom the administration has been struggling to re-negotiate NAFTA.
Canada’s supply management system for dairy, eggs, and poultry, limits production, and aims to avoid saturating the market, by keeping prices steady, and incomes steady for producers. USA dairy farmers do very well here in the United States anyway. “He learned”, Trump said wagging his finger. Several industry lobbyists told Reuters that they expect the move to come as early as Friday, with publication of a Federal Register notice, or it could be put off until next week.
“He’s giving a news conference about how he will not be pushed around by the United States. It was very friendly”, Mr Trump said. When 9/11 happened, Gander, N.L., opened its doors to thousands of strangers, many of them Americans.
Trump on Tuesday thanked China for tightening its sanctions on trade with North Korea, arguing that the economic pressure along North Korea’s northwest border had helped bring Kim to the negotiating table. Oh, and Trump got them to do it again.
“The Section 232 action – which is, let me remind people, a national security consideration – is frankly absurd”, the minister said. Any Canadian PM would have to show some resolve – Stephen Harper might have chosen more cautious language, but he would have sent the same message. “It’s just because MSNBC hates him so much”. “We just shook hands!”‘ I’m not that shallow.
Again, Canada votes to condemn President Trump.
Corker isn’t seeking re-election in this fall’s USA midterm elections, and has railed against his fellow senators who are headed to the polls and anxious about their electoral success for not standing up to Trump publicly.
