Trudeau warns the U.S. that they don’t make ‘nearly enough’ aluminium to cover their own needs

Speaking to reporters in Ottawa on Wednesday, Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau responded to a U.S. trade representative’s claim that Canada has exceeded limits on aluminum exports to the United States established when Trump lifted national-security tariffs on Canadian-made steel and aluminum in May 2019. The threat of renewed tariffs “is a little bit difficult to understand,” Trudeau said. “The U.S. doesn’t make nearly enough aluminum to be able to cover its needs, particularly at a time when we want economies to get going again across North America. What tariffs would do would be to raise prices for manufacturers in the United States and put extra stresses on them at a time when stresses abound.”
