Canada Responds to Trump’s Tariff Reversal in a BIG WAY

China may still be a holdout at this late stage, but Trump’s economic prowess is paying dividends up north.

President Trump is once again at the helm of the American economy, after a few embarrassing weeks of distraction by the delusional democrats, and we couldn’t be happier.

As the CEO-in-Chief pushes forward on a number of trade initiatives designed to spur the American economy ever upwards, reaction from the world’s stage has been mixed.

In China, trade talks have begun to stall as Beijing continues to play the only card they have:  Sheer economic size.  Closer to home, however, President Trump is capitalizing on the close relationship that the US has with Canada in order to drive home the USMCA.

Canada will move quickly to ratify the new North American trade pact, Foreign Minister Chrystia Freeland said on Saturday, a day after the United States agreed to lift tariffs on Canadian steel and aluminum.

U.S. President Donald Trump had imposed the global “Section 232” tariffs of 25% on steel and 10% on aluminum in March 2018 on both Canada and Mexico on national security grounds, invoking a 1962 Cold War-era trade law.

The metals tariffs were a major irritant for Canada and Mexico and had caused them to halt progress toward ratification of the new U.S.-Mexico-Canada Agreement (USMCA), the trilateral trade deal signed last year which will replace the 25-year-old North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA).

The language was unmistakable.

“We were very clear that as long as the 232 tariffs were there it would be very, very hard for us to ratify the new NAFTA, and that is why we did not table the legislation,” Freeland said in an interview broadcast by CBC radio.

“Now that that big obstacle is lifted, full steam ahead,” she said, without saying when the agreement would be presented to parliament, which closes down in June ahead of an October national election.

Tariffs are also playing a central role in the tense negotiations between China and the US, with both nations issuing new, more severe trade qualifiers during the prolonged escalation.

Bernie Sanders Works Hard For Immigrant Vote, Says He’l Stop Deportations If He Wins White House

This guy is wacky.

Sen. Bernie Sanders is in full campaign mode, and given his extreme, socialist bent, he’s doing what any good Democratic candidate would do in his position, which pander his pants off. Who is Sanders dedicating his time to sucking up to? The illegal immigrant vote of course. The socialist has stated that if he should win the White House, he fully plans on imposing a moratorium on all deportations, which is sure to win him major points with Democrat voters and those residing in the country illegally. via TheBlaze: Sanders was speaking at an event hosted by the progressive Latino group Mijente in Las Vegas when he unveiled this new immigration proposal. “We are going to end the ICE raids that are terrorizing communities all across this country,” Sanders said. “We are going to impose a moratorium on deportations. And we are going to, as I mentioned — and there are some things that a president can do with executive orders and some things you can’t.” https://youtu.be/_3uQw6AahII https://twitter.com/BernieSanders/status/1173326838602641408 The proposal presents a clear trajectory of where illegal immigration policy would go under a Sanders administration. If you choose to stop deporting illegal immigrants, the next step down would be to detain them when they are found living in the U.S. illegally. But since detention facilities are already overwhelmed, resulting in poor conditions at some locations, indefinite detention during this deportation moratorium would not be a viable option. So, the only other choice would be to release them — or not seek to find and arrest illegal immigrants at all. Folks just do not seem to understand the threat that illegal immigrants pose to our nation, both in regards to physical safety and economic security. The vast majority of individuals who cross the border illegally end up on welfare programs like…

New Report From CBS Claims Multiple ISIS Fighters In Kurdish Prison Say They’re American And Want To Come Home

The Kurds can gladly keep them.

A CBS reporter recently visited a Syrian prison that was chock full of deplorable, disgusting members of radical Islamic terrorist group ISIS, which obviously wasn’t much of a story, but what else she found there is making headlines all across the country, and for good reason. Apparently, several of the prisoners she encountered claimed to be ISIS members from America who want to come back home. Yeah, don’t mean to burst your bubbles, guys, but that’s a no from us over here. via TheBlaze: When he was questioned by CBS News foreign correspondent Holly Williams, prisoner and accused ISIS fighter Lirim Sylejmani told her he was from Chicago. “The choices that I made, in somebody’s eyes, the wrong choices, so I face jail time,” he told Williams. He also said that he “just wanted to live under Islamic law” and did not think he had done anything wrong. He added that he wanted to return to the United States, even though he knew that he would likely be put in prison there as well. In another case, a 7-year-old prisoner who claimed to be from New York City told Williams that he had been brought to join ISIS by his parents. A seven-year-old child? Seriously? Many of you reading this have a kid this age in your home. Think about that sweet, young boy or girl being a member of a radical terrorist group, so full of hate, anger, and violence they would be willing to murder others. That’s the kind of monsters that belong to ISIS. The kind who take away a child’s innocence and brainwash them into becoming soldiers in a war that is about nothing more than world domination and spilling blood. It’s so tragic. However, no one should be allowed back over here. Period. Once you’ve…
