REPORT: U.S. & Mexico Reach Preliminary Deal On NAFTA

Canada has been absent from the talks for some time.

With Canada having been on the sidelines for weeks, the U.S. & Mexico have reportedly reached a preliminary deal on NAFTA.

According to the NY Times, “The agreement with Mexico centers on rules governing the automobile industry, resolving a big source of friction, but leaves aside other contentious issues that affect all three countries.”

On Saturday, Trump had tweeted that things between the U.S. & Mexico were going well:

“Our relationship with Mexico is getting closer by the hour. Some really good people within both the new and old government, and all working closely together….A big Trade Agreement with Mexico could be happening soon!”

This is a concerning development for Canada.

Despite the brave (and deceptive) face the Trudeau government has tried to put on their exclusion from NAFTA talks, the reality is that it’s bad news for Canada to not be at the table.

Considering how important the auto sector is to our country, it is a big problem for our country to not even be included as a deal on that sector gets hammered out. No amount of government spin or propaganda can change that.

The Trudeau-Freeland strategy of virtue-signalling and throwing away any leverage we had to score temporary political points has clearly been disastrous. Now, Canada is on the outside looking in as an agreement gets crafted without our input, and as our government increasingly has their backs up against the wall in a tough negotiation they totally mishandled.

No amount of government spin or propaganda can change that.’ Considering the left has no concern about the oil industry in western canaduh, it is not surprising the trudo regime is doing what they are doing which is nothing for the benefit of canaduh. Their only mission is to destroy the country & place it under UN authority. This agenda was pretty much told during the election &… Read more »

After all the Lieberal/ndp parties mainstream media, slanted, lies and bad mouthing President Trump, who has done so much for the United States, really making them strong again. President Trump loves all his countrymen, Trudeau and puppets hate most real Canadians, and has way over indebted us in good times, when we should have a growing economy, there are temporary part time government jobs only to make unemployment numbers look better, as really many have not been working for a long time so less people working than there used to be, not being counted, and a too fast growing population,… Read more »

Nancy; love your comments. Especially when you mention “the puppets.” Your comments are bang on; but I also find them pleasantly funny.

Trudeau has showed every Canadian and our trading partners, just how skilful he is at negotiating a new trade deal with America and Mexico. Trudeau has been played and his negotiating skills have been exploited to benefit America. Trump and his team have used a proven method of divide and conquer, while Trudeau just strutted his vanity , false virtuousness, and rigid socialist thinking, pointless political correctness, identity politics and his farcical social justice warrior image. All to deflect attention away from the fact, that he really doesn’t have any leverage over the American’s, or to be able to negotiate… Read more »
