Trump targets 'unfair' Canadian dairy rules in fiery trade speech

Tuesday - 18/04/2017 17:12
Canada recently changed its policies on ultra-filtered milk, a protein liquid concentrate used to make cheese, to favour domestic suppliers over U.S. producers.

 

U.S. President Donald Trump took aim at Canadian dairy regulations on Tuesday, saying in a speech to factory workers in Wisconsin that NAFTA trade rules between the U.S. and Canada are a "complete and total disaster" for the U.S.

The president specifically mentioned Canada's dairy supply management system, which he called a "one-sided deal" that doesn't let U.S. farmers compete fairly.

Trump said he would seek fairer trade deals with all of the U.S.'s trading partners "and that includes Canada," he said, adding without elaborating that "unfair things" have happened in Canada to U.S. dairy farmers.
