United States and Canada agree to new NAFTA deal

October 1, 2018

  You might recall that near the end of August the United States and Mexico reached a new deal which would replace the outdated NAFTA deal. While this seems to be good for the United States and Mexico it left Canada in the cold and it was reported that Prime Minister Justin Trudeau at the bilateral deal.

  Needless to say, the mainstream media and the Democrats focused on the fact that the deal did not include Canada and used it to attack the new deal instead of focusing on what was in the deal despite Donald Trump’s assurances the United States would strike a deal with Canada.

  Fast-forward just a couple of months and all is well with the three North American nations as Donald Trump made good on another promise and the United States has reached a deal to replace NAFTA with Canada.

  Here is more:

Trade ministers from the U.S., Mexico and Canada have reached a deal to revamp the North American Free Trade Agreement, the Trump administration announced late Sunday night.

The new pact, which is being called the U.S.-Mexico-Canada Agreement, is a major step toward completing one of Trump’s signature campaign promises and gives the president a concrete policy win to tout on the campaign trail this fall. It also sets the stage for what is sure to be a high-stakes fight to get the agreement passed by Congress before it can become law.

The Trump administration already formally notified Congress at the end of August of its plans to sign a new pact and faced a deadline of the end of September to provide a draft of the agreement.

U.S. Trade Representative Robert Lighthizer said in late August that officials are planning to sign with their Canadian and Mexican counterparts by the end of November — a date that would also satisfy Mexico, which is eager to have current President Enrique Peña Nieto sign the deal before his successor takes over Dec. 1.

“It’s a great win for the president and a validation for his strategy in the area of international trade,” a senior administration official said on a call with reporters late Sunday.

  Justin Trudeau is thrilled with the deal which means the Democrats are upset because this is a victory not only for the President but for the country as well. I was going to write that the alt-left sky-screamers will be upset, but the truth is everybody on the left is going to be upset with this news because they are all routing against both the President and the country. 

  But this is not a done deal yet and for some strange reason the Congress is not going to vote on the deal until next year which means if the Democrats win big in November they will have the chance to kill this deal. The Democrats are running on not simply opposing the President but destroying him and bringing him down, and because they have their own best interests ahead of the interests of the country they will most likely vote against it simply as retribution for the Iran deal.

    Being among the ignorant as to what this means for the US, what inquiring minds like mine want to know is whether trucks carrying the Mexican coke and heroin hidden inside toys, furniture and food stuffs traveling to el Norte will continue their trafficking unencumbered once and if the deal is signed into law? Uber (thats German for over, beyond, not the car service) corruption rules the day.
