Canada's Prime Minister Embarasses Himself With Pathetic Trade Speech

Those seeking an example of how not to give a speech can watch Canada's prime minister Justin Trudeau talk about trade.

That sure was clear!

He seemed to be slurring his words. Either drunk or high is how it struck me.

And yet, many/most are so hopelessly indoctrinated by now, they can’t see beyond letting politicians like this guy, meddle in what an individual American buy and/or sell to an individual Canadian.

He's not the one imposing tariffs and re-ratcheting up the failed war on drugs.

To our American neighbours: I'm sorry. Our PM is an idiot.

Trump may be a narcissist egomaniac but he is not an idiot (not like our PM)

I want to like our neighbor Canada, but I feel sorry for them right now.

What an embarrassment to the country, and the slurring of speech is minor; the rest
more serious. Should have stayed with gay parades, and funky third world costumes, or better yet become a stay-at-home dad.

Wow. That was pretty bad. Based on trade stats from 2016, the US and Canada enjoy a robust two-way trade in steel. The majority of steel imports into Canada are from the US (59%). China is second at 9%. The United Steel Workers Union represents steel workers in both countries, and has asked that Canada be exempted from steel tariffs. By the way, the rhetoric continues to heat up. After Europe threatened to retaliate over steel and aluminum tariffs, Trump threatened a tariff on European cars entering the US. This could get ugly in a hurry.

Trade wars and tariffs are major symptoms of a longer term negative social mood. Trade wars generally do not happen so close to a top in stock markets. So the speed at which change is occurring indicates the next bear market is just around the corner and will be a grizzly one. Thank you Trump and Trudeau for a major sell signal.

"The very concept of a nation founded by European settlers is offensive to me. Old stock White Canadians are an unpleasant relic, and quite frankly, replaceable. And we will replace them."

"The very concept of a nation founded by European settlers is offensive to me. Old stock White Canadians are an unpleasant relic, and quite frankly, replaceable." Leftist Agenda propaganda campaign. If he actually hated himself as he is pretending to, he would resign and hand his job over to a person of color.

Thanks. My only solace is that I didn't vote for this idiot.
