It's not what you might have thought I was going to post.

His lumber tariffs he imposed on Canada, which was very bad for them, but now look who is benefiting.....Russia.
Yeah way to slam your closest trading ally and give the trade to Russia, stupid move Trump.


Russia has emerged as one of the winners from the trade dispute between Canada and the U.S over lumber.The U.S. is importing more softwood lumber from overseas after it slapped tariffs on Canadian supplies, making them more expensive. Russian shipments are 42 per cent higher so far in 2017, according to U.S. government data.



the Trump administration set countervailing duties of up to 24 per cent on Canadian imports. Additional duties of as much as 7.7 per cent followed in June.

Nice try. This is from the source, looks like Russia is small potatoes and is along for the ride.


To be sure, Russia accounts for a relatively small proportion of the total, while European countries such as Germany and Sweden are among the biggest suppliers to the U.S. But the shift in volumes illustrate how a political spat has quickly altered the flow of international trade.

I support Trump when I think he is right, but I will also criticize him when I know he is wrong.

He isn't always 100% right and he flip flops around, I just saw an old tweet of his saying Ron Paul is right we are wasting money in Afghanistan, and look what just happened.

I agree with him when he says there are good and bad people on both sides right/left and the media spins it that only the Alt-right had all the bad people, and everybody on the alt-left were holy saints.

We need more common sense and less cognitive dissonance from both sides right now...and Trump supporters need to call him out on bad calls; and Democrat's need to stop the scorched earth politics it's hurting the American people.

It sounds like Trudeau sucks at negotiating. That is what Trump is all about. He said he would renegotiate our trade deals and now people are complaining that he is doing it? That is one of the reasons he won the Presidency.

How about a purposeful decision between the Trump and Putin administrations. I would not be surprised at all.

I doubt it-from the story.

Everyone needs $$ Op. What's the big deal?

Maybe not being such a bigot towards Russia and be open minded to foreign countries, but I was expecting to read that he slaughtered a bunch South Americans and stole all trees in rainforests.

Regardless, isn't the tariff supposed to increase internal production? Why hurt the Canadians to help the Europeans? How does that benefit the US?

I am not sure if you can use the tariff in the same way for natural resources as say durable goods.

Can't say if US production can go up.

This was a big deal back home in Maine. Are these the same tarifs being discussed before Trump took office?

The softwood lumber dispute between Canada and the US has been occurring since the early 80's.
