Sarah Sanders warns Trump is after Canada: ‘We’ve been very nice to Canada for many years, they’ve taken advantage’

Published

During the Monday press briefing, press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders warned that Canada should gear up for a financial battle with the United States.

“We’ve been very nice to Canada for many years, and they’ve taken advantage of that,” Sanders said. “Particularly taking advantage of our farmers and at the G7.”

She noted that President Donald Trump “proposed that they get rid of all tariffs and drop all barriers and have really great trade and they refused that. And escalating tariffs against the United States does nothing to help Canada.”

Sanders said that the tactic has only hurt American workers.

“The president is working to fix the broken system and he’ll continue pushing for that,” she said.

It is frequently joked that Canada has a reputation of being overly polite and apologetic.

Netanyahu was also fined 10,000 shekels ($2,800) and ordered to reimburse the state a further 45,000 shekels, the latter of which she will pay in nine installments, at her request.

What does the Trump administration want from Iran?

Published

on

It was the latest in a series of assaults on tankers transporting oil through the Gulf. In May, Saudi, Norwegian and Emirati oil tankers were attacked off the coast of the United Arab Emirates, causing damage but no casualties. The attacks have gone unclaimed, so the perpetrator is unknown – at least publicly.

U.S. ally Saudi Arabia, Iran’s regional rival, blamed the Iranian government and called the May attacks “naked aggression.” Saudi King Salman asked the international community to “use all means” to punish Iran.
