Trump spoke with Canada's Trudeau about tariffs, NAFTA talks: White House

President Trump told Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau Monday that new USA tariffs on steel and aluminum make it more urgent to conclude renegotiations of the North American Free Trade Agreement.

Days ago, Trump had kind of blackmailed Canada by saying the U.S. will exempt its neighbouring country from the latest trade tariffs only when a new NAFTA is signed.

Prime Minister Justin Trudeau's tour of steel and aluminum factories will include a stop in Hamilton. "Our steel, our aluminium is in their tanks and ships and planes".

Canada, the top supplier of steel and aluminum to the USA market, and Mexico have been temporarily exempted from the tariffs until trilateral continental trade talks conclude.

Trudeau's dumping accusations against Beijing, which echoed Trump's own message, come after exploratory talks with China failed to advance to Canada-China free trade negotiations.

"Canada's steel and aluminum industries provide thousands of Canadians with good, middle class jobs and play an important role in our economy", Trudeau said in a statement.

He also said the tariffs on Canada would hurt the US nearly as much.

Trudeau kicks off the tour today in Jonquiere, Quebec.

The prime minister will be in Hamilton on Tuesday.

Trudeau asked after their families and how they had been coping with the possibility of tariffs that he had said would have a devastating impact in Canada.
