I believe that list reflects the good that the Trump administration has brought to the US the past one and half years. Facts and statistics show that this was not the case with the prior administration.

I have yet to see any bad consequences happen even though the alarmists in the media have constantly declared Trump will be the ruin of our America.

Just cause Trump said Trudeau was "meek and mild" doesn't mean he actually was.

World leaders were in Trump's face the whole weekend.

Hey, remember when this was a conspiracy site?

Trudeau is a bad negotiator. Someone send him Trump's "Art of the Deal".

More truth in Trump Tweets than the vile words coming from the Fake Media News. That is unless you're a CNN Zombie bot who has been brainwashed.

We should also note how no one has disputed Trump’s claims of unfair trade.


Except Canada, and his own trade advisors.



I’m not an economics expert, but Canada itself claims it has a surplus.




U.S. goods and services trade with Canada totaled an estimated $673.9 billion in 2017. Exports were $341.2 billion; imports were $332.8 billion. The U.S. goods and services trade surplus with Canada was $8.4 billion in 2017.

However, the international shipment of non-U.S. goods through the United States can make standard measures of bilateral trade balances potentially misleading. For example, it is common for goods to be shipped through regional trade hubs without further processing before final shipment to their ultimate destination. This can be seen in data reported by the United States’ two largest trading partners, Canada and Mexico.

The U.S. data report a $17.5 billion goods deficit with Canada in 2017, and a $71.1 billion goods deficit with Mexico. Both countries, however, reported substantially larger U.S. goods surpluses in the same relationship. In 2017, Canada reported a $97.7 billion surplus, and Mexico a $132.4 billion surplus.

This reflects the large role of re-exported goods originating in other countries (or originating in one NAFTA partner, arriving in the United States, and then returned or re-exported to the other partner without substantial transformation). U.S. statistics count goods coming into the U.S. customs territory from third countries and being exported to our trading partners, without substantial transformation, as exports from the United States. Canada and Mexico, however, count these re-exported goods as imports from the actual country of origin. In the same way, Canadian and Mexican export data may include re-exported products originating in other countries as part of their exports to the United States, whereas U.S. data count these products as imports from the country of origin. These counting methods make each country’s bilateral balance data consistent with its overall balance, but yield large discrepancies in national measures of bilateral balance. It is likely that a measure of the U.S. trade deficit with Canada and Mexico excluding re-exports in all accounts would be somewhere in between the values calculated by the United States and by our country trading partners.


US Canada Trade Facts

Canada’s own stats.

International merchandise trade for all countries and by Principal Trading Partners (x 1,000,000)




It depends on what data are used. Canadian officials such as Foreign Affairs Minister Chrystia Freeland, who disputes the claim the U.S. is running a deficit with Canada, tend to use U.S. figures to make their case. America’s Bureau of Economic Analysis has calculated the U.S. has run surpluses — including goods and services — with Canada in the past three years. Ironically, Statistics Canada data show Canada has run surpluses with the U.S. for 36 years straight.

The Canadian statistics agency released a lengthy report on the discrepancy last month, explaining that a big portion of the differences have to do with how countries account for re-exports.

Of course, since it’s the Trump administration crying foul, Canadian officials say it’s only fair to use the U.S. government’s own assessment of trade imbalances.

No matter which methodology is used, the trade balance has been in Canada’s favour for a very long time until it began to even out recently. Canada has run a cumulative surplus totaling $1.1 trillion (US$843 billion) since 1999, according to Canadian figures, thanks in large part to oil shipments. The U.S. data measures the U.S. trade deficit at US$548 billion over that time.


Is Trump right about a U.S. trade deficit with Canada? It depends who you ask

Canada is running “a cumulative surplus totaling $1.1 trillion (US$843 billion) since 1999, according to Canadian figures, thanks in large part to oil shipments”.

Sigh...

From the Office of the United States Trade Representative, Executive Office of the President:



Trade Balance

The U.S. goods trade deficit with Canada was $17.5 billion in 2017, a 59.7% increase ($6.5 billion) over 2016.

The United States has a services trade surplus of an estimated $26 billion with Canada in 2017, up 8.0% from 2016.
ustr.gov...

There is no need to invoke national security to raise steel and alunimum tariffs on Canada.

Nope . . . can't stand CNN, FOX, MSNBC or any of that ilk. I pride myself in researching and learning through alternative means.

If you can say Donald Trump is always honest, up-front and without reproach in all he says, then it just might be you drinking the Kool-Aid.

Just sayin'.

So, what was the "dishonest" part by Trudeau? Is Canada going to go ahead with tariffs on US products, or not?




He was being dishonest with speaking how he really feels in front of Trump at the meeting like he is supposed to instead of waiting until the meeting is over then talk smack like a coward.

This link? ustr.gov...

I'm not finding that language in there. But, my first observation from your quote is that lumber and oil seem to be lumped into his overall stats.

Keep it simple stupid:


Trade Balance
The U.S. goods trade deficit with Canada was $17.5 billion in 2017, a 59.7% increase ($6.5 billion) over 2016.
The United States has a services trade surplus of an estimated $26 billion with Canada in 2017, up 8.0% from 2016.


But, economics is more that equality in trading. There's nurturing of local markets, environmental concerns, labor concerns, and myriad of other things that are considered in trade negotiations.

The bottom line, the US's trade status with Canada isn't in any kind of state of emergency that requires Trump to pull the "national security" trigger on Canadian steel and aluminum.

Even though Ivanka may have a crush on Justine Trudeau, he's not Trump's Jarred Kushner, and Trump can't bully him around like Don Jr or Eric. Trudeau made it clear in a phone call before the summit, that if the US put tariffs on Canadian steel and aluminum, Canada would retaliate. It was reported that Trudeau reiterated that message publicly at the G7 Summit.

It seems that Trump misunderstood Trudeau's polite demeanor for subservience. He was mistaken. Trudeau isn't a some little snot nosed kid whose lunch money Trump can steal. Trudeau has the entire strength of the Canadian government and its people standing behind him.

Retaliate? Hahahahahaahahaha.....

Trudeau is a punk and he needs some credibility on the world stage so after his "nemesis" takes off he bad mouths him. Good for you. In two months when McDonalds is breaking ground in Pyongyang and NK is producing the dollar store goods for half the price of China we will know who needs tariffs and who does not.

What...is Canada going to stop...(insert funny consumer product)..from being exported/imported.

Trudeau is going to lose in this battle because he thinks his ego and youth are more than Trump...a tool...
