Having announced an agreement with Mexico over a replacement to NAFTA, U.S. President Trump turned his attention to the other party in the original trade agreement Canada. In typically combative style, Trump said his northern neighbors would have to "negotiate fairly" to get in on the deal and at the same time pointed out that it would be just as effective and far simpler for him to just slap tariffs on car imports from the country.

show that while Canada is the second most important source of new cars for the States, it is also the most valuable export market for the U.S. auto industry - and by an awfully long way.
