“Trump’s Twitter threat shakes up US-China Trade talks, stock market” by Phillip Bantz, quotes Toronto/Ottawa lawyer, Clifford Sosnow, in an article about Trump’s Twitter Threats shaking up US-China Trade talks.

“In complying with that request, Canada’s having an absolutely terrible time with China,” said international trade lawyer Clifford Sosnow, a partner at Fasken Martineau in Toronto. He added, “The irony is not lost on many Canadians.”

Still, Canada, like many other countries, hopes to benefit from whatever agreement the U.S. and China finally reach, assuming that happens. By negotiating a better trade deal for stateside companies, the U.S. could end up improving global access to the China market.
