At a press conference Thursday, the Canadian leader issued some of his strongest remarks against the Trump administration’s trade policies to date.

“Let me be clear: These tariffs are totally unacceptable,” Trudeau said. “Canadians have served alongside Americans in two world wars and in Korea. From the beaches of Normandy to the mountains of Afghanistan, we have fought and died together.”

Noting that Canada purchases more U.S. steel than any other nation, Trudeau lambasted the Trump administration for initiating the tariffs under the guise of confronting a threat to national security.
“Canada is a secure supplier of aluminum and steel to the U.S. defense industry, putting aluminum in American planes and steel in American tanks,” Trudeau said. “That Canada could be considered a national security threat to the United States is inconceivable.”

“These tariffs are an affront to the long-standing security partnership between Canada and the United States, and in particular, to the thousands of Canadians who have fought and died alongside American comrades-in-arms,” he finished.

Canada also announced that it would retaliate with tariffs of their own.

Courtesy of NBC News:

Canada will retaliate against new U.S. tariffs by imposing its own trade barriers on U.S. steel, aluminum, and other products, Canadian Foreign Minister Chrystia Freeland said Thursday.

Freeland said Canada plans to slap dollar-for-dollar tariffs on the U.S. The Nafta partner’s proposed import taxes would also cover whiskey, orange juice and other food products alongside the steel and aluminum tariffs.

The retaliatory measures will cover CA$16.6 billion in imports, Freeland said. The products being targeted will be subject to tariffs between 10 percent and 25 percent.

So we are now essentially in a trade war with Canada. 

With Canada. 

And Trump justifies this by lying about the situation.

That is demonstrably untrue, by the way. 

By the way, we have now officially placed more tariffs on our allies than we have China

You remember China, eight?

That was the country that Trump bitched about cheating the United States through unfair trade practices throughout his entire campaign. 

But instead, we are punishing Canada. 


Jesus Christ!

    In Trump’s tiny mind, if it’s a country whose name begins with a “C” and ends with an “A”, it’s fair game to start a trade war with.

    I just hope our Canadian and other friends will forgive us in a few year when we finally manage to right the ship of state and get rid of this dolt.

        This trade war manufactured by Trump, especially as it involves Canada, makes me very sad. I grew up in Michigan, on the border with Canada. I love Canadians and their country. Tommy (T.C.) Douglas was my favorite Canadian politician. Justin’s father, Prime Minister Pierre Trudeau, was (to me) very attractive and sophisticated. Justin’s mother, the young Margaret, was beautiful and such a free spirit. I was thrilled when Justin was elected Prime Minister!

        Growing up, we had only two TV channels, one from the U.S. and the other Canadian. The Canadian production was far superior. I first heard The Guess Who when they appeared regularly on that TV channel. They were special even then. I remember traveling over to Ontario and shopping for a china cup and saucer. Canadian students crossed over the bridge every day to attend high school or college with us. Nearly all the players on our college hockey team were from Canada. I can still sing “O Canada” and enjoy following the British monarchy.

        My husband and I have fished in Canada numerous times…such wonderful memories. Gorgeous Canadian paper money, plus the cute loonies and toonies. I know Canada isn’t perfect, but it sure seems so to me since our 2016 election.

    Sorry but Trudeau is a laughing stock.

    -Indians fiercely ridicule Justin Trudeau for wearing ‘fancy dress’-

      That’s what constitutes a laughingstock?

      Have you seen the guy in the White House?

        Trudeau is basically a white Obama. All about the feel goods, but not really doing anything. Canadians are wearing thin of the act. No, not all of course.

        The US is actually doing pretty well under The Trump Administration. He might be unlikable to many, definitely by most Democrats, hated by the far left.

        But in the end, that is not going to matter. Things are getting accomplished, and the US is gaining it’s strength once more in this world. You likely aren’t ever going to get it Gryph, you are wired that way.

        But if the Trump Administration makes it thru the first term, He will slide into a second term easily. You have convinced yourself otherwise, much like you convinced yourself Hillary was absolutely going to win and Trump was a joke. How did that turn out? Take off the blinders bro.

          You very well could be right! Show how low we’ve sunk.

    Gryphen, we have a sizeable right-wing element here in Canada who are against any action Prime Minister Trudeau takes. Any little faux pas is treated as a major catastrophe. Unfortunately, their voices are loud & ugly. Best to just ignore their hate-filled rants and take the example of our Prime Minister who acts with grace and dignity.

    Wish Trudeau would have a boxing match with the orange shitgibbon. Last tie I believe Trudeau won spectacularly. And the shitgibbon so deserves it.
