Trump lashes out at Canada over trade

Share

Apparently, as Trump told the crowd, this is Canadians' only resort to get basic American products, like shoes, since the tariffs are so high.

Also, goods made in other countries but bought in the United States have tariffs assessed based on their home country rather than the USA rate.

"Canada is not going to take advantage of the United States any longer".

For instance, a Chinese-made TV bought in the United States and brought across the Canadian border would be assessed a tariff as if it came from China rather than the US.

Earlier Tuesday, the official Opposition called for an emergency debate in the House of Commons over the future of Canada-U.S. trade relations.
