Executive pressure: Trump acting on calls insisting Canadians open dairy markets

Executive pressure: Trump acting on calls insisting Canadians open dairy markets”

"Canada has made business for our dairy farmers in Wisconsin and other border states very hard", Mr Trump tweeted. "It was a very amicable call", it aid in a statement.

Yesterday, the Canadian dollar took a bit of hit in the morning after it was revealed the United States was imposing tariffs of between three and 24 per cent on Canadian softwood lumber exporters.

Brett Bruen, the former White House director of public engagement, said now's the time for Prime Minister Justin Trudeau to prove he can draw a US audience, and communicate directly with the millions of people who could feel protectionism's sting.

"I think this is probably a pretty Canadian approach.it's good to be polite; it's good to treat people with respect", Freeland added.

RAY STARLING: We obviously grow more food than we can eat in the United States, so our real potential for economic growth is either talking you all into eating more or to finding new markets for our products overseas.

But the Canadian foreign minister Chrystia Freeland on Wednesday told reporters that a deal could be reached.

"By the way, virtually every country has a surplus with the United States".

The wood is a major part of the massive USA construction and home-building industry - an economic bellwether. American lumber mills complain that most of the timber used by Canadian rivals is bought from government forests at below-market prices. Trump has also been railing against changes in Canadian milk product pricing that he says are hurting the American dairy industry.

He says Democrats "weren't quite expecting that it wasn't going to be as rigid of a situation".

However, it said that the text is in its initial stages of discussion and could be revised and become part of other proposals on the North American Free Trade Agreement that the President is considering.

"Those duties will be collected and they will be collected on a retroactive basis, going back 90 days, because it is 90 days ago that the Canadians were put on notice about this being an inappropriate process", he said. The Commerce Department has ordered roughly a billion dollars' worth of tariffs on lumber imported from Canada. West Fraser has a 24.12 per cent tariff, which is one of the highest imposed. "That doesn't mean they don't have to play by the rules". The notification would not require Trump to ultimately withdraw, but it is a required step if he plans to eventually do so exit the 23-year-old trade pact.

"The president has made addressing the problems of NAFTA a priority throughout the campaign, and once the president makes a decision about how he wants to address that, we'll let you know", he said.
