  • Canada Imposes Major New Tariffs on American Goods

Canada announced Sunday that the tariffs amount to $16.6 billion Canadian dollars or $12.5 billion in USA dollars.

Gomez, who said he has campaigned with Lopez Obrador, will be advising the president to use the U.S. government's security interests as leverage in the ongoing trade talks with U.S. President Donald Trump's administration.

Canada and Mexico have the additional challenge of responding to US tariffs while they attempt to renegotiate NAFTA, a major free trade agreement, with the United States.

Canada imposed tariffs on about $12.5 billion worth of US goods, meant to be proportional to steel and aluminum tariffs imposed by the United States in June.

"At the G7, the president actually proposed that they get rid of all tariffs and drop all barriers and have really great trade, and they refused that", Sanders said. "That's the message we're celebrating on Canada Day", he said.

"I think we'll get through this".

The phone call between the two leaders was the first to be publicly disclosed since Trump blasted Trudeau as "very dishonest and weak" at the end of the Group of Seven leaders meeting in Canada earlier this month.

President Donald Trump said Sunday he wants to wait until after the election to finalize a new deal on the North American Free Trade Agreement - but it wasn't clear whether he meant the US midterms in November, or a Mexican vote that's expected to lift a left-wing leader into power.
