Trudeau, Trump talk tariffs

Trudeau, Trump talk tariffs

The president made it clear, however, that if a deal is not reached, the tariffs would be imposed, "If we terminate NAFTA because they are unable to make a deal that is fair for our workers, fair for our farmers, and fair for our manufacturers, then we will terminate NAFTA and start all over again".

"These are two separate tracks and in the NAFTA negotiations Canada will not be subject to any type of pressure", she said.

Chinese leaders, while denouncing the tariffs, have said a trade war with the U.S.is not good for either side.

In a phone call from the smelter town, Trudeau thanked Trump for the "special consideration" extended to Canada on the tariffs, and emphasized the importance of preserving "mutually beneficial" supply chains to support jobs and businesses on both sides of the border, his office said. With Canada and Mexico now in the midst of North American Free-Trade Agreement (NAFTA) re-negotiations with the USA, the potential imposition of new tariffs should the talks go awry serves as great leverage for the United States to push for more favourable terms.

Behind closed doors, Trudeau and industry representatives spoke about the issue of cheap steel entering Canada, but did not get into specifics, Canadian Steel Producers Association (CSPA) President Joseph Galimberti said.

In seeking to win a respite from the tariffs, American allies tried a mix of persuasion, threats, personal appeals, and diplomatic leverage.

But the South African Government has dismissed fears expressed by Mr Dutton for the safety of the farmers, saying its citizens are not in danger.

"That is a concern that we share with the Americans and we're going to keep ensuring that Canadian steel is Canadian steel", Trudeau said before shaking hands and taking selfies with the assembled steelworkers.

Canada, the top supplier of steel and aluminium to the USA market, has been temporarily exempted from the tariffs, along with Mexico.

Trump said last week he would impose import tariffs of 25 percent on steel and 10 percent for aluminum, effective later this month, but exempted Canada after an intense lobbying campaign arranged by Ottawa. There is no better security partner in the world.

Canada is the biggest supplier of steel and aluminum to the United States but the steel sector accounted for only 22,000 direct jobs and represented 2 percent of exports a year ago. So that whole issue of national security is off the table.

The tour was planned before the tariff exemption was confirmed but will still go ahead despite the exemption, with stops in Alma., Que, Hamilton, Ont., Sault Ste.

As the United States tries to light a fire under NAFTA negotiations, Canadian Foreign Affairs Minister Chrystia Freeland says Canada will not be bullied or pressured by the United States as part of those talks.
