All issues with Trump are "cross-contaminated" which is a bullies program, but at the end of the day everyone loses. You'd think with low capacity (and second hand equipment bought from Canada) that the US especially the hurricane zones, house build demand, and older houses built in poor inspection areas with 2x4's the USA would want a full floodgate of framing lumber coming into their states and their protectorates like P. Rico. And tax and import free.

See those storm videos? Yeh, we'll build trailers instead of "modular" and we'll use 2x4 when Canada has gone to 2x6 exterior for two decades now, and down the road the little boxes have 2X8 for the 1.5 story south face side of the little house. !!

I've had two lifelong guys that rebuild mill equipment because our mills are not only huge, and govt. connected, but in the USA some of their mills are running equipment over a century old, if they aren't buying the rebuild from Canada. Then they complain because they're no where as efficient. And don't know today what "lazer" measuring and mill cutting is, though Canada has been using this efficiency since the seventies! I know, because my friend owns a few PATENTS on this tech!

From Woodward’s new book to be released next week:

Late last year...

Quote:
Trump decided he also wanted to simply withdraw from NAFTA, directing his then-staff secretary Rob Porter to draft a letter notifying his intention to pull the US out of the trade pact between the US, Canada and Mexico, according to Woodward's book.

Porter drafted the letter, but consulted Cohn and other officials about how to stop Trump from taking a step they feared would rattle the global economy and the US relationship with its two neighboring countries.

"I can stop this. I'll just take the paper off his desk," Cohn told Porter, according to Woodward's book.
Obviously that’s exactly what Cohn did. Cohn had previously stolen a similar draft letter withdrawing from a free trade agreement with South Korea from Trump’s desk in September of the same year.

Honestly, it's like a bad Monty Python script.

^^The question is whether he ruins his country. I agree with Obama that Trump is the symptom, not the cause. And it's scary to think of a mentally ill country.

It's the only explanation that makes any sense of today's nonsense. A significant portion of them are nutz!

I love it when our various systems designed to serve us also serve to remind blowhards they're not immune from the rule of law.

Ibrahim Ali, 28, charged with first-degree murder of Burnaby teen Marrisa Shen
The man arrived in Canada as a refugee from Syria just months before the 13-year-old was killed, say police. Investigators have not said how they identified him as a suspect.

My heart goes out to the victims family.
