"The toll on rural America from escalating trade disputes with critically important trade partners is mounting".
Trump has threatened to use national security laws to do the same for vehicle imports and has walked back on environmental agreements and an global deal to prevent Iran from building a nuclear bomb. That relationship, Trump said, includes dairy prices that hurt American agriculture.
In another interesting development, Donald Trump, in a telephonic conversation with Canadian PM Trudeau on May 25, over new trade tariffs imposed by U.S. administration targeting aluminum imports from Canada, made erroneous historical reference.
"You say the U.S. President doesn't care at all. But no one lives for ever", Macron responded. The two leaders "agreed to continue working toward a mutually beneficial outcome" on NAFTA, Trudeau's office said.
"The trade gap will narrow if we are allowed to export more to all these countries", Kudlow said.

Trump and Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau are scheduled to meet at the G7 summit in Canada on Friday and Saturday.

Macron said he's faced criticism that he's been too friendly with the USA president.
"And I would just say to all of Canada's American friends - and there are so many - seriously?"

In early May, Trump announced that the us would reinstate sanctions on Iran, breaking with the landmark nuclear agreement made in 2015. But Mr Trump's decision has infuriated G7 members, as has his withdrawal from the Iran nuclear deal.
The Trump administration has threatened to impose sanctions against European companies that continue to do business with Tehran, an effort the United States has said it will resist.
Canada's non-American G7 partners don't envy Trudeau, and some are downright sympathetic.
Earlier in the day, French President Emmanuel Macron said in a press briefing that French and Canadian delegations will try to persuade Trump at the G7 summit to take a more conventional path on trade amid his imposition of tariffs on the European Union and Canada.
Trump has described NAFTA as the "single worst trade deal ever approved" by the United States, and claimed that it has led to the outsourcing of thousands of jobs from the USA to Mexico and China.
"Japan and the European Union will team up on this issue and call on cooperation from other countries", Japanese Trade Minister Hiroshige Seko told reporters Tuesday. He announced that the two nations would collaborate on initiatives on artificial intelligence.More news: Vermont will pay you $10,000 to move there and work remotely
