By taxing US consumers... er... I mean Mexico.
It's just like the way that the USA punishes Canada for sending them Uranium when Uranium is in extremely short supply in the USA and how the USA is punishing Canada for exporting software lumber when the USA doesn't have enough software lumber to fill their need for it ... which grows and grows a bit more every hurricane and tornado season.

Canada suffers far less than the American people do by those tariffs.

That's what I don't get about this trade war. Trump's tariffs hurt the US consumer more than anyone else. Heck, even harley Davidson moved some business out of the country since its steel costs went up. Trudeaut's 'counter-tariffs hurt Canadian consumers more than they do anyone else.

Now imagine if I shot myself in the foot because I was angry at you. You take it as an insult and, not be be beaten, put out a revolver, shout at me how you'll get youre revenge, aim at your foot, and pull the trigger.

Offended by your action, I say 'oh yeah? Watch this!', aim at my other foot, and shoot myself again.

That is the essence of a trade war.

If Canada were half smart, we'd do this:

How does a tariff fund a wall?
Tariffs keep going up till the illegal immigrants are stopped. Best way to stop the illegals is to build a wall. Mexico is screwed till they build that wall. Art of the deal.

My highly reliable sixth sense is skeptical that this will result in Mexico building a wall to remove tariffs.

Thin line between insane and genius

Maybe he is the later, and as sly as a fox too.



Mexico has to do something about this problem..

Further, you can count on 1000's of people from Africa in that caravan coming to Canada. Think on that.
