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.

Edited to add a link to the original editorial.

Can we mark ONION posts please?

That fine line between sarcasm and reality is getting too narrow. Could we agree to start all Onion posts with ONION: please?

I love seeing their stuff, really. But reality is getting too close to sarcasm IMO. Could we mark it as such just to save us old timers from an occasional coronary? Please?
Thank you.
