Sanders statement on Trump tariffs

Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau declines to meet Trump because of US precondition

Tariffs of 25 per cent on steel imports and 10 per cent on aluminium were imposed on the EU, Canada and Mexico from midnight in Washington on Friday.

Mexico announced what it described as "equivalent" measures on a wide range of United States farm and industrial products, including pork legs, apples, grapes, cheese, steel and other goods.

The EU has launched its first counteroffensive against Washington's punishing steel and aluminium tariffs while the U.S. began meetings in Canada with outraged finance ministers from its top trading partners.

Speaking after the meeting, Le Maire said the European Union was poised to take counter-measures against the new US tariffs.

The US decided the tariffs in March, but gave Canada and the European Union - the biggest sources of foreign aluminium and steel for the US - a grace period that ended on May 31. She said that China is to be blamed for the problems identified by the US, and not the EU.

"Trudeau uttered some of the harshest words a prime minister has directed at an American administration in decades", said Toronto Star columnist Chantal Hebert, calling this a "watershed moment in the Donald Trump-era Canada/US relationship". The EU is also planning a legal challenge via the WTO.

The EU plans to tax things like whiskey and Harley motorcycles as it strikes back at the US.

Trump on Saturday took to Twitter to complain about the higher tariffs charged by some USA trading partners under World Trade Organization agreements. "Instead of imposing piecemeal tariffs on our trading partners, he should comprehensively and fundamentally re-write all of our failed unfettered trade policies to stop the race to the bottom and lift living standards in the US and throughout the world".

The EU is preparing to slap tariffs on U.S. products, including bourbon, motorcycles, and blue jeans, worth up to 2.8 billion euros ($3.3 billion).

The U.S. decision came despite last-minute talks in Paris this week to try to reach a deal.

Trump tells reporters of America's neighbors: "these are two very different countries".

Justin Trudeau says he abandoned a proposed meeting with Donald Trump in Washington this week after the White House insisted that the prime minister first agree to a five-year "sunset clause" in a renegotiated North American Free Trade Agreement.

"They advised Germany to increase domestic demand to get rid of its trade surplus".

Ross, who was preceded in Beijing this week by more than 50 US officials, is expected during the two-day visit to try and secure long-term purchases of USA farm and energy commodities to help shrink the US trade deficit.

University of Ottawa professor Patrick Leblond said in an interview with AFP that Trudeau's newfound swagger "will help the Liberals in the next election". That's on par with the value of Canadian steel and aluminum exports to the United States.

Soaring demand for lumber from the booming US housing construction sector, where housing starts were higher than they have been in a decade a year ago, has helped pushed prices to record highs.

And the tariffs will allow domestic steel and aluminum producers to raise prices, squeezing companies - from automakers to can producers - that buy those metals.
