Macron likens talking with Trump to making sausage

Howard TerryJun 08, 2018

The Trump administration said on Thursday it was moving ahead with tariffs on aluminium and steel imports from Canada, Mexico and the European Union, ending a two-month exemption and setting the stage for a possible trade war.

The War of 1812 was a conflict fought between USA and United Kingdom and their respective allies, when the White House was burnt down by the British. Historians note the British attack on Washington was in retaliation for the American attack on York, Ontario, in territory that eventually became Canada, which was then a British colony. "The impact on Canada and ultimately on workers in the United States won't be a laughing matter". Trump is reportedly still "deciding on what to do about Canada" one official told ABC.

Speaking to Fox News, Kudlow said: "He is very seriously contemplating kind of a shift in the NAFTA negotiations".

Then-First Lady Dolley Madison famously rescued a portrait of first President George Washington before fleeing the White House in the so-called "Burning of Washington".

According to a report by The Washington Post, Trump has been complaining to aides about having to spend two days in Canada because he thinks the trip is a "distraction" from his upcoming Singapore summit with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un.

British forces did set fire to the presidential residence during the War of 1812 with the US.

"Within the context of the rights that the existing accord gives us, we are answering", Guajardo said. "Canada believes in hoping for the best and preparing for the worst". They tried to have close relations with him.

"His statement was completely inaccurate", said Maj.

Emmanuel Macron has called on other members of the G7 to stand up to Donald Trump's trade policies in the face of what he described as the threat of a new United States "hegemony".

"The United States must, at long last, be treated fairly on trade", the President tweeted on Saturday.

There is no official reaction from the federal government, but earlier Prime Minister Justin Trudeau acknowledged there will be tough discussions at the table about tariffs.

Malmstrom said she had spoken frequently with U.S. Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross to achieve a permanent tariff exemption for the EU.

Trudeau publicly called Trump's decision to impose new tariffs on Canadian steel and aluminum "insulting". The Trump administration has held out the possibility of scrapping the treaty entirely and negotiating bilateral trade agreements, something both Canada and Mexico oppose.
