Skip to comments.Trump on 'Fair Trade' not 'Fool Trade' with Canada: 'Justin acts hurt'
Posted on 06/11/2018 7:58:44 AM PDT by a little elbow grease
Fair Trade is now to be called Fool Trade if it is not Reciprocal. According to a Canada release, they make almost 100 Billion Dollars in Trade with U.S. (guess they were bragging and got caught!). Minimum is 17B. Tax Dairy from us at 270%. Then Justin acts hurt when called out!

Peter Navarro and Kudlow ripped him apart.
Hope they can put him back together.
And if they do, put his eyebrows on correctly this time.
Fagamuffin Trudeau asking for a serious arsewhoopin’.......
Looks like President Trump is “brow beating” the Canuck Cuck. Wonder what next will fall off the smarmy little twerp? One thing’s for sure - it won’t be Trudeau’s balls, since Trump already kicked those into orbit.
Trump is awesome.
I don’t really want Canada to lower their tariffs on dairy. I think every country should try to be self sufficient on the basics, food being the most critical.
I would rather see tariffs raised in general on all countries.
Prime Minister Centerfold’s poll numbers have been slipping in recent months. This should give them a shot in the arm. Which is probably why Trudeau did what he did.
Trump strikes again!
Trudeau is a spoiled rich kid who thinks the US should pay for Canadas socialist policies. Welcome to the real world. Justin thinks he can talk tough when he has no bargaining power. Canada has been getting a free ride for decades, all he can do now is whine.
“I dont really want Canada to lower their tariffs on dairy. I think every country should try to be self sufficient on the basics, food being the most critical.”
And why shouldn’t we be self-sufficient on toilet paper? It’s just trees — they grow back.
“I think every country should try to be self sufficient on the basics, food being the most critical.”
If you really want nations to prevent famines, what we really need is to encourage larger inventories of non-perishable food. Instead we TAX those inventories as assets!
Kudlow was shaking mad.
Where does this kid get off thinking he can get away with this kind of stunt? Ethics? Not much.
I’m not suggesting blocking all trade. After all, it’s better to import TP than to do without.
But raise the tariffs enough that American industries have an advantage selling into the American market.
From the get go, Trudeau has given me the creeps.
Something about him is off, beyond being callow.
Some of these trade figures are deceptive because they don't account for the disproportionate influence on these numbers from imports that work to our advantage. For example, the U.S. had about a $17 billion trade deficit with Canada in 2017. But crude oil represents a huge part of U.S. imports from Canada. Eliminate these oil imports, and the U.S. would have a trade SURPLUS with Canada.
I'm sure if you pick and choose which imports to exclude, you can show a trade surplus with every country.
The canadian people would benefit the most
Great. I got no problem with Canadian people benefiting.
It's no coincidence that both Canada and Mexico surpassed Saudi Arabia as the largest foreign sources of imported oil to the U.S. within about five years after NAFTA was signed.
