    okidokes. But you were the one that said you wanted to save the steel workers' jobs.

Again it has Nothing to do with hightech productswhere the USA are often excellent. Why do you think that American cars are not much exported to Europe ? It is a problem of quality and not the consequence of high custom duties which are actually rather low.
    This has nothing to do with the quality of our steel. This is about a consorted effort to dump cheap steel priced below fair value into our markets in a predatory effort to bankrupt our industry.

    So no - it isn't a problem of quality. And we as a country have a right to protect our domestic producers from such practices.

    I do. That's why I support these tariffs.

    Training these steel workers to do a job they already know how to do is not going to magically make all this cheap steel China and others are dumping into our country just vanish.

    That's what is putting their jobs at risk. It isn't a lack of training.

    Right, China. Which brings us back to the OP.. declaring a trade war on our neighbor and good ally Canada.

    In the sense that, a key that opens many locks is called master, but a lock that opens with any key is broken.

    Edit: as much as I'm growing to dislike Trudeau and his SJW ways, he is classically good looking, and women do swoon over him.

    But in reality, it's a sign of either a man that is manipulative or a man that is just genuinely attractive.

    I would prefer that NAFTA were abolished and we entered a singular trade agreement with Canada. Then we could deal with one another's concerns in a more direct and effective way.
    The US is Canada’s biggest trading partner so we’d be foolish to retaliate after several illegitimate trade actions. But Canada is by far the USs number one export market and slightly under just one other country, as the USs second biggest trading partner by a smidge, so it’s totally fine to decide to launch an unnecessary trade war?

    Canada single handedly buys 15% of total US exports. You want to start a tarrif contest?
    How does that work?
