So if Trump wins a small fraction of the concessions he is seeking it would be a win would it not? I would be willing to pay a little more for quality products that mean living wages not just corporate wealth.

With a narcissist like Trump, it's far more personal than that.

Trump threatens Europe with 20 percent tariff on auto imports, escalating trade showdown with U.S. allies


President Trump threatened to unilaterally impose a 20 percent tariff on all automobile imports from Europe, further breaking from Republicans in Congress and front-running an investigation he had ordered from the Commerce Department into whether these imports harm the U.S.'s national security.

It was the first time he had threatened to impose a specific level of tariffs on automobiles from Europe.

In a Twitter post, Trump demanded that the European Union remove tariffs it charges against U.S. imports or he will impose tariffs on their exports. In order to legally do this, he could be required to find that these imports threaten the national security of the United States, an argument that many Republicans in Congress have said is untrue.

This will hurt the US which in turn will inevitably hurt Canada. Canada needs to compensate by promoting freer trade with the other countries.

Maybe Canada could do this: for every tariff it imposes on the US dollar for dollar, it will lower tariffs against other countries around the world by the same amount.

What do you want?? a full on WAR......with both parties upping the ante Like some kids?? Heck..even kids have more sense than that. NO ONE WINS in these situations. and a lot of people could get hurt. It affects the economy...... employment and that has a ripple effect.

You support this nonsense......do it at your own peril.

Diplomatic maneuvers are a lot more subtle , that overt and stupid aggression and one up man-ship.

Isn't it bad enough that these tensions exist because of that orange idiot to the south of us......who has no clue as to what the consequences can be.

the SMART person knows when to pull back..... it is the BULLY that sees things only in fighting and dangerous provocation..

Why inflame that short fuse orange top?? The world is dealing with a crazy person. narcissistic sociopath
& pathological liar )......get it?? Calm SMART thinking is called for. Sage wisdom. why give that idiot the war he is looking for?? He is making things bad as it is.It might happen anyhow.

Canada produces quality products and our country strives to provide minimum wages in the attempt to have our workers earn a living wage. Trump doesn't like any of that and he wants to punish us for having the temerity to not lick his spittle.

Wouldn't driving up car prices be good for the environment?

President Trump makes good on his threat to target an additional $200 billion in Chinese imports with tariffs, ramping up trade war

The move fulfills the president��s threat to respond to China��s retaliation for the initial U.S. tariffs on $34 billion in Chinese goods, which went into effect Friday. If the levies go into effect, nearly half of imported Chinese goods would be subject to tariffs.

Trump��s latest tariffs will not be imposed until later this summer, after a public comment period.

Canada's strong economy and competitive industries can likely be attributed, at least in part, to a strong, functioning system of basic education despite very little hands-on involvement from the national government.

Trump officials consider more than doubling proposed tariffs on Chinese goods, a move that would ramp up the trade war with Beijing

President Trump is considering a plan to impose a 25 percent tariff on $200 billion in Chinese imports, more than double what he had initially proposed, a person briefed on the matter said.

The deliberations could be a sign that Trump is looking to intensify pressure in the trade standoff with Beijing even if it could significantly drive up costs on a wide range of products for American consumers.

A final decision has not been made, and a number of Trump��s threats toward China have been designed more to bring Chinese President Xi Jinping to the negotiating table than to fundamentally change U.S. economic policy, said the person, who spoke on the condition of anonymity to discuss White House deliberations.

If Trump follows through with the plan, it could significantly raise prices on televisions, clothing, bedsheets, air conditioners and other consumer products.

Supply management has nothing to do with what poisons are pumped into our food retard. It is all about controlling supply to keep prices up and the chosen rich. Typical liberal meddling in the economy.

Will it create more jobs? That certainly has not been the case in the first round of tariff exchanges. And in any case, many of the products the US imports from China are not made in the US as the US does not have the same source of cheap labour. All it will means is that your iphone will be more expensive.

U.S and China slap tariffs on each other in latest round of escalating trade war


China announced tariffs on $16 billion in U.S. goods after the United States said it would impose the same amount of tariffs on Chinese goods.

The moves, which were expected, represent an ongoing escalation of trade tensions that could soon see tariffs on hundreds of billions of dollars of goods.
