Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau said Saturday that he would with “absolute certainty” impose retaliatory measures on July 1 to answer Trump’s tariffs on steel and aluminum. He said the argument that Trump’s tariffs on steel and aluminum are a matter of national security are “kind of insulting.” Trudeau said Canadians are nice but said, “We will not be pushed around.”
“I will always protect Canadian workers and Canadian interests,” Trudeau said.
Trump responded to that with this statement courtesy of CNN:
“Based on Justin’s false statements at his news conference, and the fact that Canada is charging massive Tariffs to our U.S. farmers, workers and companies, I have instructed our U.S. Reps not to endorse the Communique as we look at Tariffs on automobiles flooding the U.S. Market!,” the President tweeted on Saturday.
In a second tweet, President Trump said, “PM Justin Trudeau of Canada acted so meek and mild during our @G7 meetings only to give a news conference after I left saying that, ‘US Tariffs were kind of insulting’ and he ‘will not be pushed around.’ Very dishonest & weak. Our Tariffs are in response to his of 270% on dairy!”
And thus begins the trade war with Canada, one of our oldest and most trusted allies.
By the way, if this picture up above is any indication, I think America’s relationships with our G7 allies could not be much worse.
But good news kids, the overthrow of our country by Russia is right on schedule.
The next time that somebody tells you that elections have consequences you damn well better listen.
