Joseph Galimberti, the president of the Canadian Steel Producers Association, says he urged the government in a cabinet meeting today to immediately impose the retaliatory tariffs on metals while it consults on other products.

So the Trump administration's new tariffs on NAFTA partners as well as its goal of adding a sunset provision to NAFTA almost guarantees that fewer companies will allow their supply chains to straddle North American borders. Additional US tariffs aimed at quickly closing the trade gap with China could therefore mark a point of no return en route to a quickly escalating trade war.

"These unilateral tariffs, imposed under a false pretext of safeguarding U.S. national security, are inconsistent with the United States' global trade obligations and WTO rules", Canada's Foreign Minister Chrystia Freeland said Friday after her country filed its WTO complaint.

And shortly after the US tariffs took effect last week, Europe's top trade commissioner said the European Union also will now consider "rebalancing measures".

"By the time I finish trade talks, that will change". Canada has all sorts of trade barriers on our Agricultural products.

Trump revives summit with N/Korea leader
While the reporters said yes to the question they also discovered for the umpteenth time how much Trump lies. Wall Street took word from Trump that the summit was back on in stride.

"Farmers have not been doing well for 15 years".

In an editorial, the official state-run China Daily said the outcome of the weekend talks suggested both sides had continued to take a constructive approach, but warned of Trump's unpredictability.

The White House has said that it might move ahead with the imposition of tariffs on $50 billion of Chinese goods around the middle of this month if a broad agreement to slash the $375 billion trade deficit isn't reached.

The weekend discussions, however, did not result in any final agreement. "It would require additional rounds of discussions between the two sides".
