President Trump is putting selective trade tariffs on steel and aluminum from Canada, Mexico, the European Union, and Japan. Now these nations are choosing to put tariffs on select U. S. products. Could some of these tariffs be on agricultural products? This could lead to a trade war. Most people say no one wins trade wars.

There are only losers.

I thought Canada, Mexico, the European Union and Japan were our allies. It seems that President Trump once again is alienating our allies and isolating the U.S. Any nation is much stronger when it works with its allies instead of against them.

Consider the following quote from Republican governor John Kasich on the Sunday morning show “Face the Nation.” “We’re going it alone. It’s not America First, it’s America Alone. And I think it’s not good policy. In fact, it borders on dangerous in my opinion.”
