Our libertarian friends are freaking out that Trump is taking a hard line with Canada and Mexico in our NAFTA talks.
Here are just a few Canadian tariffs that explain his point of view:
57.8% Barley Seed
49% Durum Wheat
18% Table Linen
Oh, and Canada created a new “ingredient strategy” tariff in 2015. Libertarians said nothing.
Donald Trump wants these tariffs knocked down so we can have actual free trade. Why don’t libertarians? And if free trade is a “principle”, why don’t they demand it of everyone and not just America?
