Trump calls Canada's dairy trade policies a 'disgrace'

Posted April 25, 2017

However, because the U.S. President refrained from providing much detail, it's unclear exactly what specific reforms will be discussed during future trade negotiations. During the election, Trump repeatedly attacked NAFTA, but always did so in reference to the US relationship with Mexico.

President Trump has attacked Canada's new milk-production system as "a disgrace" that's living on borrowed time.

But Trump on Thursday, during a bill signing in the Oval Office, called Canada's actions a "disgrace" that's putting American dairy farmers out of business.

Freeland also said that Canada provides the US with 43 per cent of its imported crude oil, and that the two countries' energy relationship "creates tens of thousands of jobs" on both sides of the border. "We're going to have to get to the negotiating table with Canada very, very quickly". Suddenly, he's tweaking Canada's nose - twice in a week, with his second twist even more forceful than the first.

Trump's heated rhetoric on Canadian trade changes a softer tone his administration has directed toward Canada since he took office in January.

He provided no rationale for his complaints. Canada's policy change to manipulate internal prices to export more dairy ingredients globally is of great concern to other nations beyond just the United States. The U.S. industry told Trump that was a "direct violation" of Canada's trade commitments to the U.S.

On dairy, he offered a scintilla of detail. We have a supply management system that works very well here in Canada.

It was a far cry from the tune Trump was singing in February. That doesn't appear to be an option according to the Prime Minister.

Earlier Thursday, Freeland spoke at an event in Toronto where she said that, broadly, she feels "very good" about the U.S.

"We can all agree that it is critical to level the playing field for our hardworking dairy farmers and make sure our Canadian neighbors rescind their unfair policy and again play by the rules", Schumer said. And on dairy, we are very comfortable with our position. "Rules, regulations, different things have changed. And I think trade lawyers agree".

Canada has ample reasons to engage. "We're not doing anything illegal, but the Americans just have an axe to grind", said Herman.

Mr. Trump defended Wisconsin's dairy farms by suggesting that Canada was "unfairly" committed to them.

Trump said the United States will report in the next two weeks what it intends to do with the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA), which he has promised to renegotiate.
