Trump calls Canada's dairy trade policies a 'disgrace'

Trump, however, blamed Canada for "some very unfair things have happened to our dairy farmers and others and we're going to start working on that".

Canada's ambassador to the US said Tuesday night that Trump is wrong, and denied any unfair trade practices with the dairy industry.

President Donald Trump is promising to find a solution to a trade dispute with Canada that has left dairy farmers in Wisconsin and NY without a market for their product.

"Dairy trade between Canada and the U.S.is important and the sectoral trade balance massively favours the US, at around 5 to 1", he wrote in a letter to New York Governor Andrew Cuomo and Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker this week.

While the new classification does not impose a new tax or additional tariffs on US dairy exports to Canada, the pricing structure does make the cost of USA ultra-filtered milk more expensive for Canadian processors, encouraging Canadian processors to buy it domestically.

Schumer, D-N.Y., an opponent of the 1994 North American Free Trade Act, has suggested that Canada violated NAFTA in its policies to raise tariffs on some American milk products. "So if you're renegotiating trade agreements like NAFTA, then you're looking at renegotiating everything".

In a blog posting earlier this month, Dairy Farmers of Canada spokeswoman Isabelle Bouchard said Canada has done nothing to block USA imports, and that the predicament is the result of an "over-saturated" market that has led to lower prices. "It's a disgrace", Trump bluntly stated during a ceremony in the Oval Office.

Bernier says Canadians suffer more under supply management than Americans and if elected leader he promises to abolish the system.

"There are irritants. There are always going to be irritants".

Trump's comments were a stunning departure from remarks he made when he met with Canada's Prime Minister Justin Trudeau in February.

It also harkens back to the US election campaign trail, when Trump regularly lashed out at specific industries, and even individual companies, and decried NAFTA as one of the worst deals ever made.

Carr said Canada's government knows it can make a very persuasive case for the integration of the two nations' economies when the sides meet for trade talks in a few months. And we'll be reporting back sometime over the next two weeks as to NAFTA and what we're going to do about it. "We are going to have a great relationship with Canada. We can not continue like this, believe me".

"And I think trade lawyers agree". The (U.S.) secretary of commerce hasn't been able to get the negotiating authority yet. "That will dictate how quickly negotiations go", said.

"The fact is NAFTA - whether it's Mexico or Canada - is a disaster", Mr. Trump said.

Lucas Sjostrom, executive director of the Minnesota Milk Producers Association, said Wednesday that 19 Minnesota producers are among the 70 to 75 initially reported as all being from Wisconsin.

Schumer are banding together to fight what they see as Canada's attempt to block US dairy producers from shipping huge amounts of one of their key products north of the border.
