Trump Declares Total Economic War On Canada-Mexico Saying “Trade Wars Are Good, And Easy To Win”
By: Sorcha Faal, and as reported to her Western Subscribers
An interesting new report released in the Kremlin today by the Ministry of Industry and Trade (MIT) states that President Donald Trump has defeated the globalists within his own government by declaring total economic war on both Canada and Mexico—and that he began this past week by breaking off North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA) negotiations, and that he followed hours later with his delivering a death blow to this trade pact by announcing new tariffs—and that just hours ago, he reinforced by declaring on his Twitter page “trade wars are good, and easy to win”. [Note: Some words and/or phrases appearing in quotes in this report are English language approximations of Russian words/phrases having no exact counterpart.]
According to this report, the North American Free Trade Agreement is deliberately mischaracterized to the American people by their mainstream propaganda leftist media as a trade pact between the United States, Canada and Mexico—but is, in all actuality, a massive Clinton regime era globalist redistribution plot meant to destroy the economic power of the US—and whose effects, since it went into effect on 1 January 1994, can only be described in the most catastrophic terms due to its have cost the American people over 1 million jobs and leaving thousands of their cities empty shells of what they used to be.
Knowing the devastation being wrecked upon the American people by NAFTA, this report continues, President George W. Bush, in 2002, began a tariff regime to rectify the trade imbalances to the US economy this supposed trade pact had caused—but whom, just a year later, backed down from just days before a deadline that would have triggered retaliation from the globalist aligned European Union, which was preparing to impose sanctions worth $2.2 billion on US goods ranging from Florida citrus products to Harley Davidson motorbikes.
Not being understood by the American people, this report explains, is how central steel and aluminum is to NAFTA—and that is due to the massive use of these metals in manufacturing plants stolen from the US and placed in Mexico—and that Canada built large industrial plants to supply Mexico with throwing hundreds-of-thousands of people in the United States out of work.
Following in President Bush’s footsteps, therefore, this report details, President Trump, yesterday, began his trade war by declaring that he was going to impose 25% tariff on steel imports and a 10% tariff on aluminum—of which Canada supplies 16% of and is why they declared that they were ready for a trade war too—but that President Trump is not afraid of as he was already angered at Canada’s deliberately trying to destroy America’s softwood lumber and dairy industries.
With both Canada and Mexico believing that their globalist aligned factions within the American shadow government “Deep State” would stop President Trump from blowing up NAFTA, this report notes, they became disabused of this notion, this past Monday, when the US Trade Representative’s office has called back its chief negotiator for NAFTA car-related issues to Washington from ongoing talks in Mexico City thus ending the talks—and who won’t return to Mexico City to resume negotiations as President Trump has made it clear that if the other sides don’t bend to his will, he plans to dissolve the NAFTA agreement entirely.
By his breaking off these NAFTA talks and then imposing new tariffs, this report continues, it’s important to understand that President Trump is acting like a master negotiator businessman, not a politician—and whose actions support this assessment as none of these issues are yet finalized leaving room for both Canada and Mexico to accede to Trump’s demand before a full blown trade war erupts.
Seeming to be the only organization understanding what President Trump is doing, this report notes, are the United Steelworkers (USW)—the largest industrial labor union in North America, with 860,294 members—who see the window opened by Trump for both Canada and Mexico to back down in the NAFTA negotiations, and who are advocating that Canada be exempted from tariffs—but in their praising Trump stated yesterday:
The steel and aluminum sectors have been under attack by predatory trade practices. For too long, our political leaders have talked about the problem, but have largely left enforcement of our trade laws up to the private sector. This is not what hard-working Americans want from their government. They expect national security, the foundation of which is built with steel and aluminum, to be protected.
Today the President announced that he wants to impose tariffs at a level of 10 percent on aluminum imports and 25 percent on steel. For the USW, the objective has always been to restore market-based economics that ensure that our domestic producers can achieve a fair return as they invest in facilities, equipment and people, and contribute to the strength of our nation. The objective should also be to reduce the negative impact of steel and aluminum imports that have decimated production in the United States. The tariff levels the President announced will help to achieve that objective.
Stirring President Trump to immediate action in imposing his new tariff regime and breaking off NAFTA negotiations, this report says, was the Luxembourg-based multinational steel manufacturing corporation ArcelorMittal (the world's leading steel and mining company) who warned that it was preparing to idle its US rolling mill and cut at least 150 of the 205 American workers employed there—but who will now be able to keep open their US operations open and join Century Aluminum (US-based producer of primary aluminum, with aluminum plants in the US and Iceland) whose CEO Michael Bless, just hours ago, stated that Trump's new steel and aluminum tariffs won't wind up hitting consumers' wallets but they will benefit “devastated” communities by bringing jobs back—with his further declaring that Trump's tariffs will allow his company to invest $100 million and hire hundreds of American workers and his saying: “Our country is short by 5 million tons of aluminum per year, so we'll have people lining up to buy it.”
As predictable as always, too, this report concludes, the globalist aligned “Deep State” now has its mainstream propaganda media puppets outright lying to the American people about President Trump is actually doing, with their churning out distorted headlines such as Trump’s Tariffs Threaten To Unleash Economic Chaos and World Stocks Slump On Fears Of Escalating Trade War—but that, and just as predictable, is seeing Trump now going directly to the American people and telling them the truth about how he’s trying to save their jobs and the US economy, and who Tweeted:
We must protect our country and our workers. Our steel industry is in bad shape. IF YOU DON’T HAVE STEEL, YOU DON’T HAVE A COUNTRY!
When a country (USA) is losing many billions of dollars on trade with virtually every country it does business with, trade wars are good, and easy to win. Example, when we are down $100 billion with a certain country and they get cute, don’t trade anymore-we win big. It’s easy!
--and who warns what’s coming next--
When a country Taxes our products coming in at, say, 50%, and we Tax the same product coming into our country at ZERO, not fair or smart. We will soon be starting RECIPROCAL TAXES so that we will charge the same thing as they charge us. $800 Billion Trade Deficit-have no choice!
