Canadian Foreign Minister Chrystia Freeland says she is not ruling out potential retaliatory sanctions against the Trump Organization in response to the U.S. president’s recently announced tariffs.

Freeland was asked by a Canadian lawmaker during a question period Tuesday whether the nation’s government has considered sanctions targeting Trump’s businesses, rather than the American people, in response to Trump’s tariffs on imported steel and aluminum, according to the Canadian magazine Maclean’s.

The article goes on to state the following:

Freeland did not reject the idea, saying that the tariffs imposed by the Trump administration against Canada, Mexico and other nations are “illegal” and “unjustified,” according to the magazine. She also echoed Canadian Prime Minister’s Justin Trudeau’s criticism, saying the national security justification from Trump is an insult to Canadians.

“We are now in a consultation period. We welcome ideas from all Canadians on what should and what should not be in our retaliation list,” she added, according to Macleans’s.
