Pence accuses China of seeking to change US president

Pence accuses China of seeking to change US president

Dairy farmers are gathering in Madison, Wis., this week for the World Dairy Expo.

Canadian dairy farmers have panned the renegotiated trade pact between Canada, the US and Mexico, saying the new deal will undercut the industry by limiting exports and opening up the market to more American products. It's allowing 3.6 per cent more US dairy to come into Canada's market.

Duane Martin, president of the Delaware County Farm Bureau, said the USA dairy industry has always been marginalized in trade deals such as NAFTA, where Canada was granted a provision to protect its industry through a quota system, controlling the amount of milk produced.

HOPE KIRWAN, BYLINE: I'm standing in the exhibition hall at the World Dairy Expo.

The USMCA also subjects Canada's dairy industry to stiff export caps on certain dairy products, including skim milk powder and infant formula.

KIRWAN: That's dairy farmer Katie Ziemer.

China's Defense Ministry said a Chinese naval ship had been sent to warn the USA vessel to leave and that Beijing had irrefutable sovereignty over the South China Sea islands and the waters around them.

The Washington Council on International Trade, which has advocated for modernizing NAFTA to enhance competitiveness of Washington in global markets, said in a statement it is looking forward to learning more about the new trade agreement and its potential.

"The Chinese military will resolutely perform its defense duties and continue to take all necessary measures to safeguard our sovereignty and the regional peace and stability", Wu said.

Dairy farmers brought signs to the infrastructure announcement to protest the USMCA.

"How much is it going to change in farmer's milk checks?" According to Gao, the big winners will be Canada, Mexico, plus any other state that has a free trade agreement with the United States, such as Australia, Singapore and Korea. The more that comes out about it the more livid we're getting.

The lack of support from investors eventually led to his "grudging approval" to reach a settlement with the SEC. Shares in Tesla closed down 4.4%, and fell further in after hours trading following Mr Musk's tweet.

"This is death by a thousand cuts, and weakening a thriving Canadian industry", Kootstra said. The goal was to boost domestic sales.

This is generally a much easier, less costly and more predictable process than trying to challenge a trade practice in a USA court. But between now and then, the USMCA has to be considered as drafted, and trade lawyers need to be aware of potential flashpoints included and not in the agreement, said Todgham Cherniak. For example, "the United States will continue to slap tariffs on Canadian and Mexican steel and aluminum - even though the Trump administration said those tariffs were meant to pressure both countries into reaching a comprehensive agreement".

"I stand for trade agreements that create jobs for Americans". Mark Stephenson heads dairy policy analysis at the University of Wisconsin-Madison. "No matter how other countries adopt trade-restricting actions against China, China will consistently pursue opening-up at its own pace and continuously [carrying] out mutually beneficial and win-win economic and trade co-operation with countries worldwide", Yang Yundong said.

"Although its findings are not likely to move markets, they present an alarming picture of US industrial decay driven by both domestic and foreign factors", wrote defense consultant Loren Thompson, who has close ties to Boeing Co and other companies.

MARK STEPHENSON: Canada began to produce more skim milk powder under this Class 7 and sell that product overseas.

The report also examined US shortcomings that contribute to weakness in domestic industry, including roller-coaster USA defense budgets that make it hard for USA companies to predict government demand.

DAVID WIENS: You know, Wisconsin produces more milk than all of Canada does.

The report noted that 90 percent of the world's printed circuit boards are now produced in Asia, with over half of that occurring in China, presenting a risk to US defense. Canada has successfully preserved key elements of the original North American Free Trade Agreement while building on it to expand opportunity and improve protections for workers across North America. Wisconsin dairy farmer Mark Heinze lost his milk buyer previous year because of Canada's move.

"It's not the time to make decisions while in a state of shock", Groleau said.

One of those industries and a major economic driver for the state of Alabama - agriculture. So this a - certainly a Band-Aid and not a fix.
