Trump says Canadian prime minister 'acts hurt when called out'
: Sorry, we cannot let our friends, or enemies, take advantage of us on Trade anymore. We must put the American worker first.
: .Germany pays 1% (slowly) of GDP towards NATO, while we pay 4% of a MUCH larger GDP. Does anybody believe that makes sense? We protect Europe (which is good) at great financial loss, and then get unfairly clobbered on Trade. Change is coming.
: .And add to that the fact that the U.S. pays close to the entire cost of NATO-protecting many of these same countries that rip us off on Trade (they pay only a fraction of the cost-and laugh.). The European Union had a $151 Billion Surplus-should pay much more for Military.
: Why should I, as President of the United States, allow countries to continue to make Massive Trade Surpluses, as they have for decades, while our Farmers, Workers and Taxpayers have such a big and unfair price to pay? Not fair to the PEOPLE of America. $800 Billion Trade Deficit
: Fair Trade is to be called Fool Trade if it is not Reciprocal. According to a Canada release, they make almost 100 Billion Dollars in Trade with U.S. (guess they were bragging and got caught.). Minimum is 17B. Tax Dairy from us at 270%. Then Justin acts hurt when called out.
: "Tariffs are going to come way down We're like the piggy bank that everybody's robbing - and that ends.
