I would like a local Republican to explain why this is a good idea?

First, Trump created economic tension with our ally to the south, Mexico; and, now Trump is creating tension with our ally to the north, Canada.

Trump is a negotiator. He is starting a trade war with Canada as a bluff, just to get Canada to allow Donny Jr. to go polar bear hunting. Once Trudeau issues Trump Jr. a polar bear permit, the trade war will go away.
