Donald Trump announces new trade deal with Mexico

August 27, 2018

  With all of the hubbub in the mainstream media about increasing tensions between the United States and Mexico after Donald Trump threatened to end NAFTA, today the two countries came to an agreement to replace the outdated trade deal.

President Donald Trump announced a new bilateral trade deal with Mexico on Monday morning from the Oval Office alongside U.S. and Mexican officials.

“It’s a big day for trade, big day for our country, a lot of people though we’d never get here because we all negotiate tough. We do, so does Mexico,” said Trump.

In the room with Trump were U.S. Trade Representative Robert Lighthizer, Mexico’s Foreign Minister Luis Videgaray Caso, and Mexico’s Economic Minister Ildefonso Guajardo. Chief of Staff John Kelly, National Security Advisor John Bolton, and Senior Advisor to the President Jared Kushner.

“We’ve all worked very hard and your brilliant representatives are sitting right in front of me and I thought we would congratulate each other before it got out,” Trump told Nieto. “I know we’ll have a formal news conference in the not-too-distant future.”

Through a translator President Nieto thanked Trump and remarked that this is “very positive for the United States and Mexico.” He went on that the call was to “celebrate the understanding that [they] have had between both negotiating team on NAFTA.”

  Next up is Canada, most likely as a separate deal but apparently with the possibility of inclusion in this new deal.

  Both sides are calling this a great deal so it appears as once again for all of the bluster in the mainstream media the end result was not as catastrophic as the mainstream media hoped for predicted.

    The MsM ‘hope’ is more inline with ‘defeat of the many’ and rising of the ‘few’. Glad they’re the ones going boo hoo. 😩🤯🤺 😊

    Let’s see what Congress does with it…. I believe they have to approve… Either way, no credit for Trump… still holding my breath. Another win for Trump.

      It is going to be interesting to see it play out in the Congress. We no there will be no Dem votes but I believe the Republicans understand they need to give Trump this victory.
