https://www.theguardian.com/world/commentisfree/2018/jun/09/milk-canada-us-trade-warAs the trade minister, Chrystia Freeland, has pointed out, trade data flatly contradicts the claim that Canadian supply management is ravaging US dairyland – either because it unfairly restricts imports or because it dumps a subsidized surplus in US markets. In 2016, Canada imported dairy products from the US worth five times more than the small amount it exported there. “I would call that a pretty good deal,” she told the House of Commons.
Canadian farmers point out that despite the tariffs that protect them, imports make up 10% of the country’s dairy consumption. By contrast, the US restricts dairy imports to 3% of domestic consumption. “That just screams hypocrisy to me,” Muirhead said. “I don’t understand how they can get away with these positions.”
Trump is a buffoon...
BTW...while Trump spent his time attacking our allies before and after the G7 meeting....while he showed up late and left early...while he did everything he could to torpedo the event...the Chinese were holding a highly productive trade meeting of their own.
So again the US, thanks to our childish and incompetent President, shrink from our role as a world leader...and China is laughing all the way to the bank.
Oh...one more point...can anybody explain why not standing for the national anthem is an issue of such importance that this President must insert himself and belittle those players...while the same President (in full carnival barker mentality) wants to pardon a boxer who refused to enter military service under the draft? This ignores, of course, the stupidity displayed by the President because of Ali's conviction being overturned...the point is Trump rails against those who won't stand for the anthem but wants to reward someone who wouldn't stand a post???
