Canadians Are Furious At Trudeau For His New Video Promoting Trump's Trade Deal

The clip is not fooling anyone.
Canadians Are Furious At Trudeau For His New Video Promoting Trump's Trade Deal

After months and even years of intense debate and negotiation between Tump and Trudeau, Canada ceded to a new trade deal with the United States called the USMCA (United States, Mexico, and Canada Agreement)

If it seemed that this deal magically came about overnight, that's because it did. You're definitely not imagining things. 

It was the result of extreme pressure tactics employed by president Trump on Trudeau and his administration.

Our government was stuck in the negotiation process.

Either agree to Trump's terms or risk auto tariffs from the Trump administration that could have possibly led to a recession.

A trade deal that’s good for Canada, for Canadian families, and for Canadian businesses.

In this new trade deal, Canada has backed-down on three main points of negotiation: internet rights, security of dairy farmers, and steel and aluminum tariffs.

Currently, Canadians are particularly angry about the security for dairy farmers in Canada.

This is because Canada already possesses a rich dairy farm market and normally manages its dairy supply to benefit local producers and exclude American competitors.

This will all change with the new trade deal, as Canada will now be required to allow dairy products from the United States to enter and flood retailer shelves. 

What's so bad about U.S. milk you ask? Well, the U.S. supply is full of chemically altered milk which is actually banned in Canada.

In light of this new trade deal, the Trudeau administration made a bubbly promotional video that attempts to shed a positive light on the new trade deal. 

Hundreds of angry Canadians are reacting to the video; the public has made it abundantly clear that this "propaganda" is not fooling anyone.

Canada needs a leader who will negotiate for Canadians like POTUS negotiates for Americans.

Great. So we get to continue paying artificially high prices for milk plus you are now going to take our tax money and buy off the milk cartel and the multi-millionaire dairy farmers.

Canadian Farmers will suffer the most.I don't know what's so good about the #USMCA. Plus we will get harmon enriched milk from across the border. You will compensate the farmers with taxpayers mny and later raise our taxes.

You know what would be good for Canadian families and businesses? An early election. #WorstPMEver

Lastly, we have this lovely image that we can never un-see again.

I'm eager to see how Trudeau will address this public discontent.

More news to come on the new trade deal.
