Canadian PM Trudeau Gets Tough on Trump Tariffs: 'Totally Unacceptable'

If there is an escalation of trade tensions it will be because of the EU’s decision to retaliate’ says Wilbur Ross

"I disagree with this decision", House Speaker Paul Ryan, the most influential Republican in Congress, said in a statement.

On Friday, reporters in Louisville, Kentucky, asked McConnell if he thought the Europeans were trying to get his attention. These are not enemies. He promised that his government will work to protect Canadian steel and aluminum workers.

In a clear reference to U.S. President Donald Trump, Macron added: "These solutions might bring symbolic satisfaction in the short term".

The Commission has drawn up a list of 322 USA products on which it will raise duties from next month.

"The government of Canada is confident that shared values, geography and common interests will ultimately overcome protectionism", Trudeau said.

Those include exchange-rate changes and inflation, as well as higher prices for raw materials such as steel. In April, its chief financial officer warned that cost increases could be worse than the company forecast in January and might last for several quarters.

Philippines says it protests China 'harassment' of navy boat
The current head, Admiral Harry Harris, has been nominated to be the new ambassador to South Korea. He will be replaced by Admiral Philip Davidson.

But the Canadian countermeasures also target Democratic lawmakers.

Though she did say that as of Tuesday Freeland was told by her US counterpart Trade Representative Robert Lighthizer that no final decision had been made on the tariffs, but by Thursday morning they were given notice. If we want to sell them our cars, and buy more of their cars, then we will also have to learn to love our old friend the chlorinated chicken, and enjoy the great taste of genetically modified corn. It's not a country that we're importing products from.

The milk market has been depressed for about three years, and farmers have struggled to break even. Well, they have a 2 billion surplus on steel with us.

Asked what Canada's plan is if the USA swipes at Canada again, Freeland said the federal government is "ready for anything... ready for any and every eventuality".

Plus, tariffs on metal imports from the EU, Canada and Mexico will be put into effect from Jun 1, as exemption offered earlier in the year lapsed. And so some of it is probably going to go unharvested or just dumped.

Brian Mann will be in Ottawa today covering the trade fight. Tariffs discourage imports by making them more expensive.

Zidane announces resignation from Real Madrid
The three-time Champions League-winning boss announced his decision at an impromptu press conference at 12 noon BST on Thursday. In addition to the three European titles, Zidane also won six other titles with the club, including one league crown.

"But the situation is worrying, it could escalate and also the recovery, the economic recovery that we have seen lately not only in the European Union but also globally, risks of course to be diminished by this".

"We would operate within (multilateral) frameworks if we were convinced that people would move quickly", he said.

Worries about the deepening trade tensions, however, were offset by a bullish report on the U.S. economy.

The EU will introduce swift counter-balancing measures to steel and aluminum tariffs imposed by the U.S., according to the President of the European Commission Jean-Claude Juncker.

And in another leg of Trump's multi-front trade offensive, Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross arrived in Beijing to continue fraught talks with Chinese officials. "I can lose only so much money on a stuck planter". In a trade war it's the average guy who loses his or her job.

Trump backs Roseanne in Twitter race row
