This week, President Trump made a huge announcement about the US imports from Canada. He has instated a 20% import tax on Canadian Softwood lumber. This is great news for US workers!
President Trump says this is an initial step in bringing work back to America. This tariff means that any lumber coming into the US from Canada will be subject to the 20% tax.
“We’re going to start doing lumber in our country, it’s going to mean that farmers are going to start selling milk in our country,” Trump said.
The President has indicated that he would also like to impose tariffs on certain Canadian dairy products as well. All of these actions are indicators that Donald Trump is ambitiously fulfilling his campaign promises to the American people. A major platform that he ran on was bringing jobs back to the US.Share on Facebook
