Did Trump Got Bested By a Social Justice Warrior in His Trade Deal with Canada?

Chrystia Freeland 
Reports The Washington Post:
For more than a year of North American trade talks, Canada’s foreign minister faced off with a president and a White House that seemed willing to say or do anything to get a better deal.

President Trump threatened the “ruination” of Canada’s economy through auto tariffs. He slapped levies on steel and aluminum. He spewed hate over Twitter at the Canadian team.

With her country’s economy on the line, Chrystia Freeland stood her ground in the talks and showed restraint, sticking to Canadian talking points and only occasionally launching into a defense of the “rules-based international order.”

[T]he deal...will be signed Friday on the sidelines of the Group of 20 summit in Buenos Aires...
Some Canadian conservatives have been critical of her trade tactics, seeing her focus on gender, labor and the environment as superfluous, or her rhetoric as smug.

 An opposition lawmaker, Erin O’Toole, said the government’s strategy amounted to “virtue signaling.” 
Since the devil is always in the details in these crony trade deals, who knows what whacko SJW stuff she added alongside the rest of this central planning trade effort. Time will, unfortunately, tell.
