Episode 50: Trade Tariffs Shock Allies

The global response to President Trump’s unilateral tariffs on steel and aluminum is deafening. In particular, allies like Canada, Mexico, and the EU have announced tariffs against the United States in response. Both Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau and Canadian Foreign Minister Chrystia Freeland were on the shows to express their disappointment and frustration with President Trump’s tariffs.

This week on Polilogue, we explore the outrage around the world and the various responses from the Republican party on Trump’s steel and aluminum tariffs. We also discuss the latest leak about the Mueller investigation and ask ourselves: “What are the limits of Trump's authority?”
