Canada began imposing tariffs Sunday on US$12.6 billion in U.S. goods as retaliation for the Trump administration's new taxes on steel and aluminum imported to the United States. Some U.S. products, mostly steel and iron, face 25% tariffs, the same penalty the United States slapped on imported steel at the end of May. Read full article

    “Are you so ashamed” If not you should be endlessly trotting out the same racist diatribe of an American parasite like Pat Buchanan.

    “Is no longer going to subsidize Canuckistan socialism” Unfortunately, your okay with the Trump sound bytes, but devoid of any proof. The US has has a long history of being rebuffed, its just you Trump revisionists haven't been brought up to speed. So get used to it. While there are many things both nations agree on, there have been many occasions where Canada has not agreed. “…Diefenbaker refused nuclear arms for Canada ..and hesitated to back Kennedy during the 1962 Cuban Missile Crisis. …By 1965, however, relations had deteriorated significantly as Prime Minister Lester Pearson and Canadians found it difficult to give the US the support it demanded during the Vietnam War. By 1967 the Canadian government openly expressed its disagreement with American policies in Southeast Asia. A nationalist movement demanded that American influence be significantly reduced. ..Relations ...were strained. It was evident that the government of Pierre Trudeau and the administration of Ronald Reagan perceived international events from a different perspective….When the Americans extended the war to Iraq in 2003, Canada, under Prime Minister Jean Chretien, refused to take part in the new campaign.”

    LOL! America's economy is going the way of Argentina's in trying to pick winners and losers.

    How's the trade war(s) going so far?

    Not too well if GM, Harley Davidson and Mid-Continent Nail are anything to go by.... and the retaliatory tariffs haven't even started biting yet!

    Inflation will go up and growth will slow..... who is Trump going to blame then?

    When will America finally be great AGAIN? I'm waiting!
