They didn't actually threatan a trade war with France, they can't because they're an EU member and don't have that kind of control of their economy, any more than Wyoming could threaten a trade war with the Netherlands. They threatened a trade war with the EU.

Wine. But the world isn't exactly gonna stop spinning if Americans have to pay more in order to drink French wine.

We can produce wine in all 50 states. Not to mention, Napa Valley is widely considered the best wine growing region in the world.

California and Chile supply plenty of wine. If prices rise it should be moderate.

Trade wars only harm Service based economies. What are they going to say, "you are a tourist from America, so you pay 20% more"? And because lots of modern economies have decided to increase service based industries, there is not really any leverage they have.

I know a number of critics have said the Bush did something similar in like 2002 and it backfired. But first it's 15 years later, the industries of the world have changed a lot. Particularly with regards to corporations dodging taxes and regulations by "relocating", making American companies like Apple "Irish". Add in the fact that Trump is directly attacking the loopholes foreign companies have to dodge the tariffs.

Great question, but as far as I have been able to determine, pretty much nothing. At least nothing unique or something we can't find cheaper elsewhere.

Wasn't france crying like a little bitch when we merely boycotted them last time?

Canada has threatened to impose retaliatory tariffs on the US on items including agricultural products, which could hit rural areas of the US

This is exactly what we want anyway. So, thanks Canada. Fuck you and your Bombardier jet ski things and your snowmobiles.

Canadian taxpayers have been robbed to subsidize Bombardier so if you could impose some extreme tariffs on Bombardier that would be great.

They'll never last. Apparently they get most of their maple syrup south of their border.
You ever seen a person with maple syrup withdrawal? It's not pretty.

Every leftists politician in the western world appears to be doing everything they can to get unelected and their followers are so hypnotized they could watch them throw babies into a bonfire and they'd still vote for them. Paying more for Smucker's Jam ought to break the spell though. They can put up with rape gangs, terrorist murder without end and white genocide, but this they will take notice of.
