Trump takes aim at Canada's dairy industry

President Donald Trump just targeted a new opponent - Canada's dairy trade industry.

About 70 dairy producers in both Wisconsin and NY are affected. "It's your own responsibility, as a country, to manage your production".

Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker and New York Governor Andrew Cuomo previously signed a letter to Trump asking that he address Canada's "protectionist dairy trade policies". The Ottawa-based Dairy Farmers of Canada, which represents 12,000 farms, is confident the Canadian government will "defend and protect" its dairy industry and the economy, a spokeswoman said by phone.

However, time is running out for other Wisconsin dairies. As a result of Canada's new national pricing policy, dozens of dairy farmers in the Midwest recently learned they must find new customers for their milk by May 1, which will cause considerable economic hardship and possibly force them to go out of business.

Standing up for dairy farmers in Wisconsin "demands fair trade with all of our trading partners", Trump said, "and that includes Canada".

His brother told the Post he recently found messages on Tigre's computer reading, "I don't want to do these things anymore". He reiterated that Suffolk County detectives have been working with FBI investigators to solve the killings.

"When it comes to wasteful destructive job killing regulations, we are going to use a tool you know very well - it's called the sledgehammer", Trump said. "We're going to get the solution". Charles Schumer and Kirsten Gillibrand of NY, and U.S. Sen.

Senior finance officials who briefed reporters on the meetings suggest the order would run counter to protections Canada has secured through NAFTA.

The National Milk Producers Federation and U.S. Dairy Export Council traveled to Mexico City in March to meet with Mexican dairy leaders to reinforce its commitment to continue working with that country.

Steel is expected to play a key role in any joint infrastructure projects between Canada and the US, something Trump and Prime Minister Justin Trudeau pledged to co-operate on during their White House meeting in February.

"So the Americans are not suffering from the current terms of NAFTA and existing trade agreements".
