By Bizpac Review. . .Proving that he’s determined to be a thorn in President Trump’s side even on his deathbed, McCain once again tried to undermine the billionaire by slamming the tariffs Trump slapped on China and Canada (you know, like the ones they charge on American goods).
Senator McCain tweeted during the G7 Summit: “To our allies: bipartisan majorities of Americans remain pro-free trade, pro-globalization and supportive of alliances based on 70 years of shared values. Americans stand with you, even if our president doesn’t.”
For the record, a senator does not make U.S. trade policy, nor does he speak for all Americans.
McCain was reacting to President Trump’s controversial announcement that the U.S. will impose tariffs on some imports from Canada and China to make up for the decades-long trade deficit with the two countries.
To our allies: bipartisan majorities of Americans remain pro-free trade, pro-globalization & supportive of alliances based on 70 years of shared values. Americans stand with you, even if our president doesn’t.

Justin Trudeau Furious Over Trump’s Steel Tariffs, Says Canada Will Retaliate
By Daily Caller. Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau called President Donald Trump’s steel tariffs against his country’s products “inconceivable” and threatened to retaliate in kind within the coming months.
Trudeau called Trump’s protectionist gambit “totally unacceptable” during a Thursday afternoon press conference. It is “inconceivable” that “Canada could be considered a national security threat to the United States,” he added.
Canada will impose tariffs against American steel and aluminum in the amount of $16.6 billion at rates of 25 percent and 10 percent, a number representing the total value of Canada’s 2017 steel and aluminum U.S. exports. They’ll go into effect on July 1 and stay in place until the U.S. ends its own tariffs.
Tariffs of 25 percent on steel and 10 percent on aluminum from the European Union, Canada and Mexico will take effect Thursday at midnight, Wilbur Ross, the U.S. commerce secretary, told The New York Times Thursday. All three together supply nearly half of America’s imported metal. (Read more from “Justin Trudeau Furious Over Trump’s Steel Tariffs, Says Canada Will Retaliate” HERE)
