WINNIPEG – Now that Donald Trump is president-elect of the United States, what happens to Manitoba’s relationship with our neighbours south of the border?
Loren Remillard, president and CEO of the Winnipeg Chamber of Commerce tells 680 CJOB our economy is so integrated with the United States, we’ll be forced to work closely with Trump regardless of what he does to our trade agreements.
“What you say and do while you’re campaigning and what you say and do when you start governing are not necessarily one in the same,” says Remillard. “Now he is responsible for putting together a federal budget and pulling together a cabinet and getting legislation ushered through.”
Remillard thinks Canada will be part of Trump’s plan to “rebuild America” as good economic growth north of the border is also good for the United States.
Trump will be inaugurated as the 45th president of the United States on January 20th.
