Flavio Volpe, President of Canada’s Automotive Parts Manufacturers Association (APMA), mocked President Trump after he threatened to create new tariffs on automobiles on Saturday, saying Trump would end up hurting Americans.
“So…. you’re suggesting using a National Security regulation to charge $8B in tariffs to *American* consumers who buy 1 million cars made by American automakers, containing 60% American parts content, because of the price of milk in Windsor?” Volpe wrote.
The article goes on to state the following:
Volpe’s comment followed after Trump said he would not endorse a joint communique signed with the other Group of Seven (G-7) members at this weekend’s summit, and appeared to threaten to impose further tariffs on the country.
Trump’s decision not to endorse the joint statement came just hours after all nations had agreed to sign the document, despite previous fears that trade tensions between the U.S. and its allies would lead to the U.S. being excluded.
So…. you’re suggesting using a National Security regulation to charge $8B in tariffs to *American* consumers who buy 1 million cars made by American automakers, containing 60% American parts content, because of the price of milk in Windsor?

Based on Justin’s false statements at his news conference, and the fact that Canada is charging massive Tariffs to our U.S. farmers, workers and companies, I have instructed our U.S. Reps not to endorse the Communique as we look at Tariffs on automobiles flooding the U.S. Market!
