Trump Trying To Appear Presidential: Paquette

The American tax on our softwood lumber is a way for Donald Trump to show he's presidential, according to a Lakehead University political science professor.  

Laure Paquette believes it gives Trump the advantage of saying he's keeping his election promise of "America First".

She says it'll take quite some time for any policy changes put through by Trump to take affect, with any changes affecting Canada more than the States. 

Paquette says this is just the latest in the long string of softwood lumber disputes between our two countries.
