With the Mexican government publicly gushing gratitude for President Trump’s negotiating savvy following a remarkably successful and important conclusion to trade negotiations between the United States and Mexico Mr. Trump now sets his sights on doing the same with Canada. It will be an interesting showdown between the alpha Donald Trump and the preening beta Justin Trudeau. One man built a real estate empire. The other was a drama teacher.
Earlier this summer PM Trudeau attempted to corral President Trump into signing off on a G7 deal.
Trump was having none of it.
A bit of public back and forth between the two leaders has followed but with the clear economic advantage favoring the United States. Trudeau has become something of a joke among Canadian voters over his propensity to grovel for approval which has resulted in some rather disastrous public relations examples.
And now the whispers in and around D.C. suggest a growing number among Canada’s political and economic elite are bypassing Trudeau altogether and seeking out a new trade deal with the United States before President Trump’s ongoing tariffs against Canadian imports further harms an already increasingly precarious Canadian economy. In short, Donald Trump is negotiating from a position of considerable strength as he further inserts his administration’s ‘America First’ agenda.
Then, with agreements between Mexico, Canada, and in part the European Union, already hammered out, Trump will again turn his full attention to China and North Korea. The Chinese economy is faltering, partly due to the weight of Mr. Trump’s trade battle with the communist regime. The U.S. economy, by comparison, is thriving due primarily to the pro-growth policies of the Trump White House. More and more are suggesting China will for the first time in decades be willing to negotiate an open and honest trade deal with the United States. Should that happen, the U.S. stock market boom will be one for the ages.
This President Trump is truly something special.

“Lots of action, mystery, crackling dialogue, and a touch of romance while also having plenty to say about the importance of family, living by a code, and defending what’s yours.” -MobelyReviews
