    G7 Summit / Trump Trade War

    So that G7 was pretty uneventful, huh? LOL

    This trade war is going to hurt everyone, not just Canada. What Trump doesn't understand, or underestimates, is how symbiotic the two economies are.

    I'm pretty proud of my prime minister, even if he is a goof.

    I work in the auto industry near the Canada-US border (canada side) so I'm just hoping this is all smoke and mirrors and I don't get laid off.

    Sounds like the start of a recession if this keeps up tbh

    My company buys steel that often comes from the US, and we ship products into the US. It's a huge concern for everyone.

    The auto sector will take a massive hit on both sides, which is what the US and Trump don't realize. They're shooting themselves in the foot.

    I do like the #thanksCanada hashtag that's going around on Twitter.

    We ought to thank Trump for doing something something unprecedented - uniting Canada behind the Prime Minister. We don't stand alone either.

    I'm glad Trudeau is taking the high road and not engaging in this childishness. What the PM said was actually pretty mild and is nothing that he hasn't said publicly and to Trump himself before. I suspect that these remarks made to a global audience, just before his meeting with Kim Jong Un, drove Trump into a classic hissy fit, a tantrum that a four year old would be embarrassed about.

    Why did Trump schedule the meeting with NK so close to the G7 summit anyway? It's clear that Trump has no respect for America's long time allies and would rather embrace murderous dictators around the world: Putin, Erdogan, Duterte and Kim Jong Un, probably the worst of the lot.

    My favourite moment was Navarro's "There'a a special place in hell" remark, though he spoiled it by trying to take it back and apologize.

    The U.S. Chamber of Commerce, that bastion of socialism and treason, estimates that Trump's trade policies could cost 2.6 million American jobs if he follows through with the tariffs and elimination of NAFTA.
