The Trump administration is announcing tariffs on steel and aluminum imports from the European Union, Canada and Mexico. The move is sure to raise worries of a trade war with American allies.

Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross says there will be a 25 percent tariff on imported steel and a 10 percent tariff on imported aluminum.

President Donald Trump announced the tariffs in March but the U.S. granted exemptions to the E.U., Canada, Mexico and other U.S. allies.

Ross says talks with Canada and Mexico over the North American Free Trade Agreement are “taking longer than we had hoped.” He says negotiations with Europe have “made some progress” but not enough to merit an exemption.

*sigh*  .....trying hard to figure out how this helps us and how China doesn't come out the winner here.

Trudeau's take is pretty savage though, in the most Canadian way:

"We will continue to make arguments based on logic and common sense and hope that eventually they will prevail against an administration that doesn't always align itself around those principles," said Trudeau.


Trudeau is in no position to talk about logic and common sense. You can get fined in Canada for refusing to refer to a transexual by his/her preferred pronoun ffs.


Interesting. Canada don't have a 1st amendment so the concept of fining someone for refusing to say a word or saying the wrong word is...odd.

What's the source on Canada not having freedom of speech, religion and press?

As far as I can read it's the same as it is in most western civilization.

Edit: As far as the pronoun thing I'd guess it's because of hate speech laws, which we also have here in Denmark. I don't really see the problem with it.

The whole summit had little moments like that, but overall I actually don't think Trump did all that badly. I think he and the right-wing are straight up lying about getting NK to agree to complete denuclearization though. He got KJU to agree to pursue denuclearization, something they've repeatedly agreed to in the past, without actually doing so.

He got played, as expected.

It's funny how much he praised Kim Jon un after the summit. It's a complete 180 to how his reaction to the G7 leaders was. It's almost like he is looking to strengthen relationship with dictators and theocrats while pissing off the allies.

Strange times.

And yea, he got played. Kim goes back a hero for stopping South Korea's military activities on the border, easing of the sanctions and still carrying on weapon development while Trump got nothing.

Seeing our flag next to the NK flag was frankly surreal. KJU is not an ally yet he's being treated like one. The man is a dictator and he has killed tens of thousands of his own people. He hasn't earned the respect that Trump has shown him.

It's really telling that Trump gets along with guys like this and Duterte, but sees Merkel, Trudeau and Macron as the bad guys. I'm sure he thinks Nicolas Maduro is "talented" as well.

completely agreed. It's weird waking up this morning to find everyone praising Trump for this historic achievement. Also nearly everyone is reporting that NK is committing to complete denuke while he only promised to "work towards" that. Very weird.

So I'm going to slide to the middle for a bit as there is something that despite my misgivings about how Trump has handled the G7 and KJU, that bothers me.

When he was ready to start a war with KJU with the provocation and name-calling, he was rightly condemned for it. Now it appears he's trying tor the exact opposite and is still condemned for it. What could he potentially do in this situation that would earn him praise from both sides?

My personal take on this is he's on the right path in trying to get KJU to commit to rapid denuclearization, but he needs to stop treating this guy like he's some brilliant world leader prodigy. All brutal dictators are "talented" in a way and that's not a compliment. There's a way to bring to light the atrocities going on NK without directly having a go at KJU. I wish Trump were nuanced enough to know how to do that, but he's not. Dude's a goddamn bull in a china shop.

Donald Trump has ordered the Pentagon to create a US "space force", which he said would become the sixth branch of the American military.

The president said the force would be "separate but equal" to the US Air Force, adding that the move represents a "big statement".

Speaking at a meeting of the National Space Council, Mr Trump framed space as a national security issue, saying he does not want "China and Russia and other countries leading us".

He added: "Our destiny beyond the Earth is not only a matter of national identity, but a matter of national security.

"When it comes to defending America it is not enough to merely have an American presence in space. We must have American dominance in space."

Apparently we have billions to spend on a *bleep* space force, but no money to spare putting undocumented immigrant kids in cages.

This guy Laughing

Praising Kim Jong Un a ton, starting a trade war with Canada and the EU, asking to bring Russia into the G7, shitting on the G7 PMs, separating immigrant kids from families, leaving the UN human rights council, launching a space force.

Good to se United States have not learned their lesson about concentration camps after what they did to the Japanese. And even the Nazis.

This is not how this starts. It’s way past that and I’m tired of hearing so many people say it’s a media narrative against Trump.
Incredible how a racist idiot like him has managed to replicate Goebbels’ tactics when I assume it’s been taught to every person in school and how to spot it. But I guess I shouldn’t be surprised anymore.
