President Donald J Trump is known for saying a lot of things about various countries the U.S. deals with, both in interviews and online. Known for his Twitter fingers, he has definitely gotten himself into some hot water. However for the most part he tends to leave Canada out of the mix. Except for yesterday that is, when he targeted us in his U.S. whitehouse remarks on the trading practices between Canada and the U.S..
His thoughts on the longstanding trade relationship between Canada and the U.S. were that, "Canada does not treat us right in terms of the farming and the crossing the borders,” adding, "We cannot continue to be taken advantage of by other countries”.
From the interview, he appears that he's looking to add a tax to trade agreements between Canada and America. What that tax looks like specifically is unknown but he did promise information on this new tax threat as early as this week.
Saying, "we are going to charge countries outside of our country — countries that take advantage of the United States."
Finally he ends the spiel saying, "They understand where I'm coming from, I've talked to all of them and they understand. It's a little tough for them because they've gotten away with murder for 25 years."
And by that we believe he is referring to the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA ) that Canada, the U.S., and Mexico have been operating under since 1994.
