Trump takes direct aim at Canadian dairy

On a visit to the US cheese-making state of Wisconsin on Tuesday, Trump said he would "stand up for our dairy farmers" adding that "in Canada some very unfair things have happened to our dairy farmers and others".

Regulations imposed by the Canadian government hurt dairy producers in NY and Wisconsin, the governors of both states said Tuesday.

The governors say Canada's actions could cost the US economy hundreds of millions of dollars.

President Donald Trump said in an address he delivered in Kenosha, Wisconsin on Tuesday that his administration was going to find a solution to Canada's unfair trade deals that hurt American farmers.

"Together with other dairy exporting countries, including the USA, we have questioned these policies at WTO Committee on Agriculture meetings in Geneva as recently as last month", McClay said.

Canada recently informed major Wisconsin and NY processors that they will no longer have a market for ultra-filtered milk.

Trump also reiterated his threat to eliminate the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA) with Canada and Mexico if it can not be changed. "What has happened to you is very unfair".

Trump was joined by several Wisconsin Republicans, including Gov. Scott Walker, Lt. Gov. Rebecca Kleefisch, state Assembly Speaker Rob Vos, U.S. Rep. Glenn Grothman, U.S. Sen.

The Senators have written to the Trump administration as well as to the Acting U.S. Trade Representative and Acting Ag Secretary about the milk pricing problem.

"The whole thing is ridiculous". "Canadian farmers always get $5-10 per hundredweight of milk more than us because they have a government-controlled supply management program".

Trump last week promised "pleasant surprises" from planned renegotiations of NAFTA, an agreement he's called the worst deal in US history.

Some hope that President Donald Trump will renegotiate NAFTA, a promise he ran on during the 2016 campaign.

The Montreal Economic Institute recommended limiting protectionism in both industries to help consumers, spur economic productivity, and ultimately create more successful businesses in both countries.

NY farms are at a risk of losing a key market for ultra-filtered milk, Cuomo said.

The remarks are a marked departure from Trump's previous comments on Canada.

Far from the U.S.

Cuomo and Walker are by no means the only top government officials concerned about Canada's attitudes toward the dairy trade.
