At the G-7 summit, Trump claimed that the U.S. has been unfairly taken advantage of on trade by Canada, Japan, & the E.U. He also offered to eliminate all tariffs & trade barriers if those nations do the same. Do you agree with Trump on this?

Are these the tariffs that Trump recently put in place?

Get rid of all of them, plus eliminate governmental subsidies to business.

Maybe Merkel had how hands on the desk to keep her from falling. Trump was having none of it.

Less tariffs sound great. More or higher tariffs, not so much.

Of course, it’s only fair.

Would this include all countries removing subsidies from certain industries? For example, US dairy subsidies make for an unfair environment when compared with Canadian dairy farmers. Their tariffs on US milk protect their industry. Will we be dropping all the subsidies? And will our partners be willing to do likewise?

Personally I find tariffs ineffective and dangerous.

But it's not unreasonable to say trump has a point, that the us should t be expected to be the only nation without them. It's fair to want other nations to get rid of theirs.

He’d only remove them if the other G7 nations remove theirs first.

I understand but I still wouldn’t move them. We need steel and aluminum production. I don’t want completely free trade, that means globalism. I want a good deal for us! That is our only goal

I’m always for eliminating tariffs and other barriers to trade.

Yes. Their tariffs on US goods is higher than the US tariffs on theirs. Just level the playing field

Yes, seems we always get the shot deal, never has really been fair to us, we help what seems like everyone, send money here n there, it's great to help out but we are on massive debt, time charity starts at home, n we worry about our damn selves n stop allowing everyone else to take advantage of us.

I definitely agree with Trump on this. Part of the fault lies with us because we've been too permissive in our trade policies up until now, which has allowed these nations to take advantage of us without any repercussions. I also agree with Trump's strategy. Trade goes both ways. If you impose tariffs on us or if there is an unfair imbalance, we will correct that imbalance with tariffs of our own. If you lift trade barriers between our nations, we will respond in kind.
