Trump attacks "unfair" Canadian dairy industry

Trump attacks

Congressman Sean Duffy (R-Wisconsin) told Action 2 News that Canada found a loophole in the North American Free Trade Agreement-or NAFTA -- that allows them to block imports of American milk.

Trump promised to work with Wisconsin's congressional delegation to get a solution after the governors of Wisconsin and NY urged him to take action.

New York's senators are pushing to change a Canadian trade policy they say is hurting dairy farmers.

But Canadian agriculture leaders say they have a right to enact domestic-minded policies, especially as USA farmers flood worldwide markets with excess milk.

Other countries have taken runs at Canada's sacrosanct supply-management system in previous trade negotiations, and Trump appeared to be taking dead aim during his appearance Tuesday in the U.S. Midwest - in a state he took from the Democrats with his "America First" anti-trade message.

"I strongly encourage other dairy processors to consider how they can be part of the solution", Brancel said.

Cuomo's office noted the state's existing trade relationship with Canada.

"If these multi-generational farm families can not find another market for their milk, they will be forced to sell their cows and go out of business", New York Agriculture Commissioner Richard Ball wrote in a letter to the U.S. Department of Agriculture last week. "And, I've been reading about it, and I've been talking about it for a long time and that demands, really, immediately, fair trade with all of our trading partners and that includes Canada".

"When it comes to wasteful destructive job killing regulations, we are going to use a tool you know very well - it's called the sledgehammer", Trump said. Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross has blamed the Senate for delaying the confirmation of Trump's US trade representative. "We're going to get the solution".

Schumer, Gillibrand and Sen.

"Can we renegotiate and get a better NAFTA deal?"

"The whole thing is ridiculous".

The National Milk Producers Federation and U.S. Dairy Export Council traveled to Mexico City in March to meet with Mexican dairy leaders to reinforce its commitment to continue working with that country.
