RIP Philo

Canadians, please tell me that 270% tariff on American dairy for

years isn't true!

“PM Justin Trudeau of Canada acted so meek and mild during our @G7 meetings only to give a news conference after I left saying that, ‘US Tariffs were kind of insulting’ and he ‘will not be pushed around.’ Very dishonest & weak. Our Tariffs are in response to his of 270% on dairy!” the U.S. president tweeted.

So what is the tariff on dairy?

Tariffs of up to 300 per cent prevent imports of milk-based products into Canada, forcing Canadians to pay high prices for domestic and imported cheeses and other products.

This figure is widely quoted.

Supply management and other policies “nearly double the cost of milk to consumers in Canada,” according to the University of Calgary report.

More 4D chess from Trump.

The MSM won't be able to resist 'correcting' trump's figure of 270% to 300% and thereby actually making his argument for him.

This tactic of either understanding or exaggerating figures as a way to hand your opponents rope to hang themselves is incredibly effective.

I hope to be able to find a way to try it some day.

BTW, it sure is fun that we are "at war" with Canada. Been too long and it's long due to have a tussle with them. Even though it's just a "trade war", but it's an upgrade from yesteryear's "ideological war" against them.

When/if central USA becomes a dust bowl due to global warming, Canada will have become more temperate and will be annexed.

People like Justin Trudeau will be put up against a wall and shot.
