Political Optics – Justin From Canada Tentative Over USMCA Trade Visit – Worried Tariffs Will Still Apply…

The publicly sold narrative is Canadian PM Justin Trudeau holding out on a celebratory USMCA visit to Washington DC over worries about U.S. steel and aluminum tariffs.  However, the background issue is Justin maintaining his “resistance” bona-fides during a U.S. election year.

Mexican President Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador is coming, but Justin has all those pesky political optics to worry about.  Or something….

OTTAWA (Reuters) – Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau said on Friday he was still unsure whether he would go to Washington D.C. next week to celebrate a new North American trade treaty, citing concern about possible U.S. tariffs on aluminum.

Mexico’s President Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador, who is due to meet U.S. President Donald Trump next week, has said he would like Trudeau to attend.

“We’re still in discussions with the Americans about whether a trilateral summit next week makes sense,” Trudeau said in a news conference. “We’re obviously concerned about the proposed issue of tariffs on aluminum and steel that the Americans have floated recently.”

U.S. national security tariffs on imported steel and aluminum – including from Canada and Mexico – were a major irritant during negotiations for the United States-Mexico-Canada trade deal, which was reached last year and entered into force on July 1.

But now, U.S. Trade Representative Robert Lighthizer is considering domestic producers’ request to restore the 10% duty on Canadian aluminum to combat a “surge” of imports. (link)

      Visited my faraway sister couple years ago

      She told me “you need to up your socks game”

      Bought me a couple pairs of pastel socks with little dogs and other icons on them
      They’re happily keeping each other company in my sock drawer, only because they were a gift.

      I was 63 at the time, wearing white cotton socks with any kind of sneaker and black cotton socks with casual leather shoes. Still do. Cotton-synthetic black dress socks with dress shoes.

      Will not, will not – repeat – will not – wear those below-the ankle socklets women have worn with running shoes for decades and that some men(?) started wearing 5 or 10 years ago.. Gay

      You’re dead-on, WalkAlone, with that “Said no man. Ever.”

        Yes, they are concerned about the optics.
        Just as BLM has culturally appropriated “the Blacks” to forward their marxist agenda, they have found a small group of “Native Americans”, like the drum beater with the Covington kids, willing to play the role.

        The purpose of the “protest” is to have video of the mean PoPo or Natl. Guard using “chemical agents” (tear gas) to disperse the ‘peaceful protesters’ so that the msm can show it, rather than any coverage of the celebration at Rushmore.

        All so predictable,…..and unfortunately those so inclined (TDS/TDV infected) are falling for it, as we strive mightily to keep our anger Cold.

      How did the police, who were literally manning a road checkpoint right there, allow the “protesters” to park 4 extra long vans in a manner that blocked the highway, remove one tire on each vehicle and get away clean with the jack handles in their possession? My old CO used to say, prior planning prevents poor performance. Obviously there was no planning.

    He needs to be more worried about documents that were delivered to your POTUS from a man named Norman Traversy claiming (which is fact) that Trudeau and other entities are corrupt and under the agreement Section 27 the government is to investigate any corruption or the consequences are tariffs! There is video of the amazing deliverance to the US Embassy in Ottawa on Canada Day after 12 noon when the treaty came into effect. I had hoped to be there to support him in what he is doing for us but was unable. Your POTUS may be the saving grace for you…but I believe for us too! What he included in this agreement I hope will force our law enforcement to do their job where Trudeau and his crew are concerned…so thank you President Donald Trump…for everything you are working to do globally for all to be free!

      According to my research, both Pierre Trudeau & Fidel Castro had BOTH just finished with Maggie Trudeau at one of their Swinger’s Parties back then & both of them got into a disagreement over who was the greatest Communist of all time.

      Since they could not decide, they insisted that one sperm cell from each dicktator impregnate Maggie’s egg!

      This explains why some people say that Justin Trudeau looks like PET & why some say he looks like Fidel Castro… Because Justin has two dads!
