Trump says he rejected Trudeau, again threatens Canadian-built auto tariffs

Justin Trudeau says he made no requests to meet with U.S. President Donald Trump while the two leaders were in NY this week for the United Nations General Assembly.

Canadian Prime Minister, Justin Trudeau, speaks during a news conference at U.N. headquarters during the General Assembly of the United Nations in Manhattan, New York, U.S., September 26, 2018. One such attempted encounter led to a brief handshake, with Trump remaining seated when approached by the prime minister. Ever since Trump began placing taxes on imports coming from Canada, tension has become alarmingly clear since Canada responded with their own targeted tariffs on the United States. "The Americans are finding that the negotiations are tough because Canadians are tough negotiators, as we should be". "But a good and fair deal is still very possible and we won't sign a deal that's bad for Canada".

He also again threatened to slap auto tariffs on Canada, if a NAFTA deal isn't reached.

Officials in the Prime Minister's Office say a one-on-one with Trump was never actually requested.

"No, we didn't ask for a meeting this time around", Trudeau said.

Trump was publicly angered by comments Trudeau made at his closing G7 press conference in June, and has likely been offended by Freeland's recent speechifying that has defended the worldwide institutions the USA president is regularly accused of undermining, said Cyndee Todgham Cherniak, an global trade lawyer.

Despite being loaded on offense, the Cardinals have been inefficient in 2019 and rank near the bottom-10 in runs and home runs. Louis has title-winning pedigree and are loaded offensively, but thus far simply haven’t delivered consistent results.

The U.S. has suggested it will forge a new NAFTA deal with just Mexico if it fails to reach an accord with its northern neighbor.

In a wide-spanning news conference in NY, the US president said that if Canada does not make a deal, he will "tax the cars that come in". "Canada has a long way to go". He said both that there's a "good chance still" that the US and Canada will reach a deal, but also that "probably or possibly" they won't.

"I don't think we should succumb to the threat, and of course the bullying, that the president is trying to impose on our country", he said. Williams estimated that in Canada, the tariffs could result in the loss of 100,000 jobs, while according to the Center for Automotive Research (CAR), which studied the impact of the USA imposing section 232 tariffs on autos from other countries, not just Canada, "consumers will see the price of all new vehicles rise by $455 to $6,875 depending on the level of tariff or quota, where the vehicle was assembled, and whether the policy provides exemptions for automotive trade with Canada and Mexico".

One Canadian government source said there was a significant chance that Congress would balk at any move to turn NAFTA into a bilateral pact. The Trump administration could face barriers in Congress if it tries to advance a deal without Canada.

"We are in surreal territory where the President of the United States is threatening automotive tariffs that will be really car-mageddon for the retail vehicle industry here in Canada, particularly if we retaliate in the same function", said Williams, who represents 150,000 auto sector employees.
