How to handle U.S. threats to Canadian trade 12.6.2018 rabble.ca - News for the rest of us
US Politics Following his departure from the Charlevoix G7 Summit, Donald Trump took to Twitter to denounce the host, Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, calling him weak and very dishonest. The U.S. president was angry because Trudeau said it was "sort of insulting" to cite national security as the reason for imposing new U.S. tariffs on Canadian imports of aluminium and steel, since soldiers from both countries had fought shoulder to shoulder on various occasions around the world since the First World War. Trump claimed it was Canada that blocked U.S. goods, with tariffs as high as 270 per cent on U.S. milk, suggesting the American tariffs were pressure tactics unrelated to national security. Being name-called by Donald Trump will likely result in boosting the flagging popularity of the Canadian prime minister, if not his government.

US Politics After 500 days as U.S. president, Donald Trump is riding high, enjoying 87 per cent approval ratings from the 26 per cent of U.S citizens who declare as Republicans. This is more partisan support than any U.S. president has received since the Second World War, other than George W. Bush after 9/11. While it is easy for Canadians to think of Trump as unfit and unqualified to be U.S. president, it is a mistake for the Trudeau government to ignore the way he keeps checking the boxes on his campaign pledges. Whether it be pulling out of the Paris and Iran accords, moving the U.S. embassy to Jerusalem, expelling immigrants, or giving American corporations that invest in the U.S. a dollar for dollar tax benefit for each dollar invested, Trump is moving ahead on his partisan agenda. Donald Trump was elected promising to deal with China and other American trading partners (think Canada and Mexico, its NAFTA partners), who were "stealing" American jobs. The U.S. president currently has his sights on ...
