The New Northern Border

The New Northern Border

“The United States and Canada are in a fight, obviously,” said Fox News commentator Shepard Smith on Monday afternoon:

“President Trump accusing the country’s prime minister of making false statements, and the president’s trade adviser saying there’s ‘a special place in hell’ for the leader of Canada, our biggest trading partner in all of the world, our best friend from way back in World War II and every time in between. Canada. Maybe we need a northern wall.”

Mr. Smith was joking, unlike Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker, who raised the idea in 2016 while he was running for president.
