    I have confirmed that Canada is selling soft lumber below market prices to undercut US workers.

    Difference is Trump didn't stab him in the back. Trump ran on this. Trudeau knew this was coming a long time ago.

    We didn't backstab you, Trudeau just repeated what he said earlier about the tariffs and stuff. It's not his fault you weren't paying attention the first time around. And good luck to your manufacturing firms that use fine-processed steels from the EU that you can't produce yourself. It'll take some time before your steel industry can produce those kinds of steel. And expect republicans to start rebelling once our tariffs start hitting their exports.

    I think Trudeau used too many big words. Trumpites are pretty dense.

    A pictograph would have been better.

    So it looks like Trump fell for the old "The check is in the mail" line.

    Brilliant negotiating that was.

    I know! But if trump did go down then Mike Pence would become president.........
    We'd pretty much have to go all or nothing......sending 400-500 ninja beavers to Washington ought to do the trick, or just have Justin Bieber perform in front of congress and the US government

    He did ... by imposing the steel and aluminium tariffs uinder spurious reasons

    Especially the steel tariffs may backfire very soon, considering the fact that the USA don't have all too many production capabilities for the high quality steel that gets imported from the EU (especially germany) and any US manufacturers that use high quality steel will have to buy the steel at exorbitant prices, as soon as their stockpiles are depleted.
    Has the potential to drive many manufacturters into bankruptcy (and will surely result in steeply rising prices for their goods, unless they decide to produce/sell at a loss)

    Not to forget that the retaliatory tariffs by the EU and Canada (and I suppose mexico) will follow soon, during this month and the beginning of the next one. Tariffs which will especially be aimed at products from those states where Trump and other high ranking republicans come from (and have their main voter base)
