Yesterday Donald Trump announced that he's going to war — a trade war, one he’s been talking about for decades:
"Trump says US will impose steel and aluminum tariffs"
But what about us, here in Canada?
The New York Times reports:
"China is the main target of possible tough new United States trade measures against low-priced imports of steel and aluminum. But the sanctions threaten to ensnare America’s closest allies, particularly Canada."
That article ran a week ago, when Trudeau was dancing his way through India in his own Bollywood fantasy. (And of course getting himself embroiled in a terrorism issue...)
Meanwhile, this headline from yesterday:
"Foreign direct investment in Canada plunges to the lowest in eight years; And for the first time in a decade foreign companies sold more Canadian businesses than they bought;
That’s mainly Trudeau and Notley’s war on oil and gas and pipelines.
But now Trump is coming for steel, and after that, do you doubt he’ll be coming for cars, for Ontario’s industrial heartland?
Trudeau's budget this week shows he’s in denial.
His bizarre feminist approach to trade deals shows he’s in denial about NAFTA.
We’re about to be smashed by Trump — and it was all so unnecessary.
NEXT: Candice Malcolm of the True North Report joins me to talk about Trudeau's Minister for Public Safety, Ralph Goodale, running away from reporters asking how a convicted terrorist got invited to one of the prime minister's official dinners in India.
THEN: I sit down with Ontario PC Party leadership candidate Tanya Granic Allen to talk about the issues facing the province, and how she'd tackle them if she wins the leadership race.
