Justin Trudeau, the Prime Minister of Canada, took to Twitter to express his - and Canada's - feelings about the steel and aluminum tariffs that were announced by the U.S. on Thurs., May 31.
Trudeau, in a series of tweets, announced Canada's intention to implement its own tariffs in retaliation for the steel and aluminum tariffs.
Canada plans to issue tariffs on U.S. goods starting on July 1. While it's not clear what will be affected yet, Trudeau's made himself very clear. What Canada loses on import tariffs, it will earn back from the U.S.
Trudeau isn't the first to respond to the U.S. tariffs. Mexico has also stated that it intends to fight back against the U.S. by implementing its own tariffs. The EU has also spoken out, saying that it will be considering tariffs for U.S. imports.
The "EU has already come up with numbers and products," said Hugo Perezcano, deputy director of economic law at the Centre for International Governance Innovation.
