      I personally live in Canada, but don’t a ton of Americans live paycheck to paycheck? So doesn’t this hurt them more since Canada will just sell it at a higher price.

    SUPER RAT

  5. As a Canadian i’d like to just say sorry for taking advantage of America eh.

  6. I don’t think he understand how Tariff’s and taxes work…If you impose a tax on a product, the producer increases the cost to offset losses. Basically American business are going to be paying for this Tariff in the end, not Canadians.

    • @Nakib Hasan It is because you misinterpreted his intention. It is not about trade deficit. It is to divert attention from his fail regarding the pandemic and use the tariff to make Canada to help in all issues against China.

      Stupid. Let the free market breathe

    • Humble Avitar absolutely it’s beyond political preference at this point, ppl just want trump out for the sake of the country and democracy

      Humble Avitar compared to you they’re Rhodes Scholars.

    • That’s generally the point of tariffs looks like Trump is trying to develop American aluminum industry or to simply paint a political image

    Americans will have to spend more. Anyone thinking otherwise is a fool.

    Canada should increase duties on American dairy.

    Decimated seems to be a new word Trump has heard somebody use. I have heard him use it at least two times in interviews or speeches today. I wonder if he knows what it actually means.

  10. so Americans will pay 10% more for Canadian aluminum? lmao. problem solved.

    • Frank badgerman | August 6, 2020 at 9:40 PM | Reply

      no no see that wont send the message make them pay 15% more that way atleast canada makes an even greater profit and the trump supporters might realize he doesnt know what the hell he is doing but i doubt that

    What does he mean ” as usual…”

  14. We just stop doing business with anything own by Trump and his family.

  15. “I’ll be waving my hand
    Watching you drown
    Watching you scream
    Quiet or loud.” -Some Canadian band.

    Donnie is going down!

  17. We should be making cf-105’s with that aluminum and forget about buying those slow f-35’s that would run out of gas trying to catch a russian bomber crossing canada

  18. Wish there was a politician in Canada that put Canada first.

  19. Trump just increased the price of tin foil hats.
