Canadian Diplomat Suggests U.S. Allies Respond To Tariffs With Targeted Sanctions On Trump

Tired of trade wars? One of Canada's former diplomats is suggesting that the EU flip the Magnitski Act on its backside by placing very targeted fees on the Orange Maggot.


I propose that instead of taxing the import of American serviettes, we tax Trump. In the spirit of the Magnitsky Act, Canada and the western allies come together to collectively pressure the only pain point that matters to this President: his family and their assets. This could take the form of special taxation on their current operations, freezing of assets, or even sanctions against senior staff. Canada could add a tax to Trump properties equal to any tariff unilaterally imposed by Washington. The European Union could revoke any travel visas for senior staff in the Trump organization. And the United Kingdom could temporarily close his golf course.

He's got a great idea. One the Mango Molester might even be able to understand.

1. At this point in time, G6 also knows about different avenues

in responding to shithole.

USA majority agrees with democracy.

2. Perfect response.

Hit him in his own wallet so he can suck it up for the good of the nation. Like he told the farmers to do.

3. Brilliant & the most diplomatic of all policies presented thus far.

Allies will stand by their friend, the USA.

Shrink the growing tumor, save the body.

Thank you Canada & our allies

6. And red states,

and enough start hitting his properties and businesses, and promote solar energy is another sore spot so anything to reduce coal usage, or elimination, anything to reduce oil usage also bothers him a lot.

7. That's a magnificent idea!

I urge them to implement it immediately. The World vs. Donald Trump and family.

Putin would probably bail him out though, since Trump has been carrying Vlad's water for him for so long, but who cares? It would hurt Putin as well, or cause a rift in the TrumPutin pact.
