Trump delaying NAFTA deal until after midterm elections

Trump delaying NAFTA deal until after midterm elections

As temperatures and tensions increase, the measures targeting Can$16.6 billion (US$12.6 billion) in United States steel, aluminum and consumer goods will take effect on Sunday, when Canadians celebrate a national holiday and just days before Americans celebrate Independence Day amid a heatwave expected in both countries.

Trump railed against his trading partners during the meeting, according to sources, and withdrew his support for a joint communique after leaving the summit, angering and bewildering some of Washington's closest allies.

Canada has begun imposing tariffs on $12.6 billion in US goods as retaliation for the Trump administration's new taxes on steel and aluminum imported to the United States. The move has been viewed as a possible negotiating ploy to restart NAFTA talks, which could resume following Sunday's elections in Mexico.

"His tactics so far in dealing with any country, and in particular with Canada, has been to use bullying tactics, and we've got to stand up to a bully".

Trump has clashed with Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau over trade, with the US president tweeting last month after departing the G-7 meetings in Quebec that Trudeau was "weak" and "dishonest".

The tit-for-tat duties are a response to punishing U.S. steel and aluminum tariffs imposed at the start of last month. The U.S. Commerce Department is expected to hold hearings on auto tariffs in late July and to complete its investigation into auto imports later this summer. "[As] Canadians, we're polite, we're reasonable but we also will not be pushed around". "We can't allow those types of comments to throw us off our priorities", Singh said.

"When we started looking at these tariffs, in which has really escalated into trade war, we knew that agriculture was going to bear brunt of that", he said.

"The US tariffs leave Canada no choice but to defend our industries our workers and our communities", Canadian Foreign Affairs Minister Chrystia Freeland said.
