Justin Trudeau might skip US-Canada-Mexico summit due to tariff and coronavirus

Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau might be skipping the United States–Mexico–Canada Agreement (USMCA) summit in Washington DC next week.

He also cited US threats to re-impose a 10 percent tariff on Canadian aluminum — part of Washington’s efforts to limit exports, says Politico.

“We’re obviously concerned about the proposed issue of tariffs on aluminum and steel that the Americans have floated recently. We’re also concerned about the health situation and the coronavirus reality that is still hitting all three of our countries,” says Trudeau.

Trump had lifted aluminum and steel tariffs on Canada — and Mexico — last year as part of USMCA negotiations.

“What we simply highlight is the United States needs Canadian aluminum. They do not produce enough, nowhere near enough aluminum in the States, to be able to fill their domestic manufacturing needs.”

President Donald Trump is set to meet with Mexican President Andrés Manuel López Obrador on July 8th and 9th.
