Trump snubs Trudeau with Mexican trade deal

Ezra LevantRebel Commander

On last night's episode of The Ezra Levant Show, Manny Montenegrino joined me to discuss Trump signing a new trade deal with Mexico.

Trump has attacked Mexico since the day he began his Presidential campaign, but he was able to put aside personal differences to reach a deal that benefits American workers and the automotive sector. Trump is bringing tangible economic benefits to regions of America that put him in the White House, why can't Trudeau grow-up and do the same for Canada?

Trudeau rejected Trump's offer of a bilateral trade deal, Trudeau insisted on forcing gender and collective bargaining issues into trade negotiations, and Trudeau has refused to abandon Canada's Dairy Cartel after it was directly attacked by Trump. Now Canada is getting left behind.

WATCH my interview with Manny to see how this fits into Trump's larger plan to bring Canadian dairy and automotive jobs to America.

Manny’s brilliant analysis of Trump’s goal to move $200 Billion worth of auto production South is frightening. His observation that the trade barriers for the much larger telecom and banking industry are not a focus supports his hypothesis. Trudeau and Freeland have really screwed this up and the bi-lateral deal with Mexico leaves Canada with very little wiggle room. Pray there is another outcome.

Ger San… It’s been obvious for over a year now that our Boy Blunder and Krystia With The Red Dress On don’t have a clue as to what the hell they are doing… Unfortunately, given that, they are also not calling the “stupid shots” against Washington… As always, it has been Gerald Buttskie from day one…

Ezra, I disagree that Trump’s intent is to take any jobs from Canada. He is simply using tariffs as a very effective club. The problem for Canada is Trudeau is out of his league here. Trump has assembled a formidable team to put his vision of free, tariff-less trade into action. Trudeau and his gal pal Freeland don’t recognize the signs from Trump that he’s not bluffing, and they don’t seem to to take him very seriously (although the Mexico deal might change that – but I doubt it.) No, I think Trudeau & Co. just might be so unable to respond in kind to Trump’s methods that they will at least act like they are willing to let the Canadian economy crash rather than deal with Trump. Hopefully, you have cooler heads behind the scenes up there that will take young Justin aside and “read him the riot act,” as we used to say down here. From my perspective, I think that’s Canada’s best chance to avoid an incompetence-driven disaster.

That’s because trudeau is snubbable; not lovable; but snubbable. Why? Cause he’s a jerk. How come jerks don’t know they’re jerks? Oh I know, could it be they’re jerks.

I can hear the tantrum from here.

Trump cannot make a deal with a spoiled child.

Gives Mohammad Trudeau another excuse to sell (give) us to China and the Islamist UN……Trump clearly recognizes Trudeau and his Islamic cabinet as a security risk to the US

Jill and John Ward, do you mean he just wasn’t ready? Still isn’t ready? Or never will be ready? Or all of the above?

trudeau brought this all on himself!
He is the most vile, narcissistic, tyrannical, anti canadian sociopath ever in canadian parliament!
However for some reason the masses are blind to this and gleefully reward this TRAITOR who by all means NEEDS TO BE CHARGED WITH TREASON, HIS CITIZENSHIP REVOKED AND DEPORTED! Same for his entire cabinet and their families! SEIZE ALL THEIR ASSETS/MONEY BEFORE THEY ARE DEPORTED , TO PAY BACK THE DEBT THEY CREATED AS WELL!!
