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.

Video: Biden Says Drunk Driving Is Not A Felony for Undocumented, Won’t Deport Because of It

He said what?

Joe Biden was speaking. Look out! Some crazy quotes are heading your way. For example, the 2020 Democrat frontrunner literally said he won’t deport illegals for drunk driving. No joke. His words. Think about that for a second. How many people have died from reckless, intoxicated drivers? Has Joe considered the fact that nobody would get hurt (or killed) by an illegal if there aren’t any illegals in the country? How can Democrats support this kind of rhetoric? Is Joe’s own family cool with this kind of talk? If so, why?

It couldn’t be more clear. With President Trump, it’s “America First.” With liberals, it’s “Anyone BUT America First.” The only reason that “America Second” was a winning strategy in 2008 and 2012 was because Barack was a minority. The left was desperate to get a black man into office, regardless of his policies. If Joe or any other Dem thinks the “America Second” strategy is going to work against Trump in 2020, well, best of luck – because it ain’t happening.

WATCH: Schiff Admits Trump’s Impeachment Is About Stopping Him From Winning Re-Election

Bing…Bang…Boom!

He admitted it, folks. The impeachment of President Donald Trump is strictly political. Of course, conservatives knew this from day one. The mainstream media has yet to catch on, but maybe now they will get a clue. Maybe. On Wednesday afternoon, radically far-left Congressman Adam Schiff said something that should end this charade once and for all. And yeah, Schiff’s words are a very big deal. From Daily Wire: House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff (D-CA), who is serving as a Democratic impeachment manager during President Donald Trump’s Senate impeachment trial, admitted on Wednesday that Democrats’ partisan impeachment was about stopping the president from being re-elected. Schiff said, “The House did not take this extraordinarily step lightly. As we will discuss, impeachment exists for cases in which the conduct of the president rises beyond mere policies, disputes to be decided otherwise, and without urgency at the ballot box.” He added, “Instead, we are here today to consider a much more grave matter and that is an attempt to use the powers of the presidency to cheat in an election,” Schiff continued. “For precisely this reason, the president’s misconduct cannot be decided at the ballot box, for we cannot be assured that the vote will be fairly won.” WATCH: https://twitter.com/NewsHour/status/1220056517510156298?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1220056517510156298&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.dailywire.com%2Fnews%2Fschiff-admits-in-senate-trial-that-impeachment-about-stopping-trump-re-election WATCH: Rep. Adam Schiff: “What we’ve seen here is far more serious than a third rate burglary of the Democratic headquarters.” “Where is Howard Baker? Where are the people who are willing to go beyond their party to look to their duty?” https://twitter.com/ABCPolitics/status/1197629141522075648?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1197629141522075648&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Fthehill.com%2Fhomenews%2Fadministration%2F471565-schiff-says-trumps-actions-go-beyond-anything-nixon-did POTUS called out Schiff for being the lying [insert word here] that he is.
