Donald Trump maintains tough trade talk ahead of G7

G7 leaders are in for an interesting meeting as U.S. President Donald Trump maintains his adversarial stance on trade.Trump has been lashing out at longtime allies including Canada and Prime Minister Justin Trudeau.Prime Minister Trudeau is being so indignant, bringing up the relationship that the U.S. and Canada had over the many years and all sorts of other things…but he doesn’t bring up the fact that they charge us up to 300% on dairy — hurting our Farmers, killing our Agriculture!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) June 7, 2018 Why isn’t the European Union and Canada informing the public that for years they have used massive Trade Tariffs and non-monetary Trade Barriers against the U.S. Totally unfair to our farmers, workers & companies.

If it doesn’t happen, we come out even better!— Donald J.
