Theresa May tells Trump tariffs are 'unjustified'

There goes the neighborhood Canada & Mexico vow to strike back at US in trade war

'Farmers have not been doing well for 15 years. But other Canadians say they're not scared. Every time you hear the word, you nod as if it makes sense and then, in the back of your mind, swear you're going to Google it next chance you get, but then you get distracted by things more interesting than tariffs, which, if we're being honest, is a staggeringly large universe of things.

The United States had sought to use the tariff threat as a cudgel to win concessions from Canada and Mexico in talks to renegotiate NAFTA, offering the two US neighbors a permanent exemption if they agreed to USA demands.

Trump won the presidency with the help of farm-heavy states like Pennsylvania, Wisconsin, Ohio, and Indiana.

There's no word yet on when the Trudeau government is going to unveil an aid package for steel and aluminum firms and their employees who as of last week are facing hefty USA import taxes on goods they ship to American customers. Canada and Mexico import about $39 billion in farm products while China's share is $20 billion and the European Union brings in around $12 billion. Horgan has also pointed to perceived gaps in prevention efforts and response plans in the event of a spill.

Business Insider found in an analysis that the total value of the goods Canada listed as subject to tariffs is more than that stated goal.

And Beijing threatened to raise tariffs on goods like soybeans, corn, beef, oranges, and tobacco in the wake of the president's threat of $50 billion levy on their goods. "Don't blame Trump. Blame China, blame Europe, blame NAFTA, blame those who don't want reciprocal trading, tariff rates".

Over the week-end, it was reported that the United States was singled out by some of its closest allies Saturday over the imposition of tariffs they warn will undermine open trade and weaken confidence in the global economy.

Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau responded to the tariffs with a statement that, by Canadian standards, is absolutely vicious: "Let me be clear: These tariffs are totally unacceptable". But as U.S. Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross conceded Thursday, as far as Canada is concerned, Ottawa's refusal to give sufficient ground on NAFTA was the reason. He specifically noted the size of the trade deficit with China as he defended his moves.

Kudlow acknowleged that the dispute over trade could jeopardize a USA economy that is now "clicking on all cylinders", with surging growth and low unemployment. U.S. President Donald Trump justified it as necessary to ensure U.S.

On Friday, Canada challenged the US tariffs in an appeal filed with the World Trade Organization.

Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau blasted the tariffs imposed by the Trump administration on steel and aluminum as "insulting and unacceptable" and said he would retaliate by placing similar penalties on United States goods, increasing the possibility of an all-out trade war between the two allies.

Mexico, the third-largest USA trade partner, said it would penalize US imports including pork bellies, apples, grapes, cheeses and flat steel. "It can not be overstated what this president has done for the community, the hope that he is inspiring, the economic growth that he has inspired within this country".
