Just watched the 20 minute Chrystia Freeland “news” conference.
Apparently she’s promised “not to negotiate in public” which means she is unwilling to address any substantive questions at all.
This week’s talks have ended but they will be back at it Wednesday of next week.
Just one problem, which Freeland, of course, dodged, Trump has basically said that he is not moving on any of the key points and that he’d be just as happy to drop a 25% tariff on Canadian made cars. Kinda tough to negotiate around that.
Which means that, after a week of “intense” negotiations Freeland is going back to Canada with nothing except the fact that The Donald is planning on taking his bilateral agreement with Mexico and notifying Congress that it will be signed 90 days from now.
