Trump attacks "unfair" Canadian dairy industry

President Donald Trump speaks at Snap On Tools Tuesday

Canada's ambassador to Washington said Tuesday night that President Donald Trump is wrong when he says Canada's trade practices in the dairy industry are "very unfair". Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross has blamed the Senate for delaying the confirmation of Trump's US trade representative. "This is not free markets, this is protectionism", said Duffy.

New York's senators are pushing to change a Canadian trade policy they say is hurting dairy farmers. The White House says the program undercuts American workers by bringing in large numbers of cheaper foreign workers, which drives down USA wages. I commend you for stepping up and doing your part to help Wisconsin's dairy farm family.

Standing up for dairy farmers in Wisconsin "demands fair trade with all of our trading partners", Trump said, "and that includes Canada".

He appeared to be taking dead aim at the Canadian industry and its supply-management system during an appearance in Wisconsin, a state he took from the Democrats with his "America First" anti-trade message.

Most dairy products sent to Canada are subject to heavy tariffs, but ultra-filtered milk from the US wasn't subject to those tariffs because it came into use after NAFTA was approved in 1994. South Dakota Dairy Producers Association Executive Director Roger Scheibe says they share the same concern about Canada's milk pricing scheme and are hoping the administration takes action.

"We're going to make some very big changes or we're going to get rid of NAFTA once and for all", he said.

IDFA said NY exports more to Canada than to any other country in the world.
