During his run up to the victory….Mr. Trump was adamant that NAFTA and other trade agreements were bad deals and once he was elected they would be torn up and re-negotiated…..does anyone recall this?
Well once again…if anyone cares….we may have been played…..
After repeatedly referring to NAFTA as “the worst trade deal maybe ever signed anywhere” during the presidential campaign, the Trump administration seems to be softening it’s protectionist rhetoric. According to The Hill, in speaking to a group of concerned business leaders, Trump advisor Anthony Scaramucci said that the new administration isn’t looking to “rip up NAFTA” but rather to “right-size it and make it fairer.”
Another source for this statement…….
Members of the Trump transition team are trying to tamp down concerns among corporate leaders that the incoming administration may spark trade wars with Mexico, Canada and other major trading partners over the next four years.
Anthony Scaramucci, a senior advisor on the Trump transition team, told a group of business leaders convened at a bipartisan meeting by the group No Labels that President-elect Donald Trump is a free-trader who is looking to make trade deals more fair, not scrap them.
Almost daily his promises are falling by the wayside….and yet NO one seems concerned that he is crapping on the deals that he campaigned on…..now if this had been Clinton it would indeed be a big deal….but as usual….Trump will get a free ride from those that he played….
