DOW Up = About 260.00 points

To be called - United States Mexico Trade Agreement.

They didn't really get into the nuts and bolts but they did say this is a very large trade deal with Mexico. Perhaps the largest.

Now we have to hope that Congress doesn't screw it up.


Now we have to get together with Canada.

So...

Blow shit up.
Rebuild it.
?????
Claim success.


Am I missing anything? Breaking things just to claim success when you fix what you broke isn't achievement.

As I understand it, The United States will no longer get screwed and it is a great deal for Mexico too.

I'm sure we will find out some more about it when it starts working its way through Congress.


BTW, NAFTA screwed the hell out of The US. This will fix that. Sorry about that, I know how much you guys hate The United States.

I still won't buy anything from Mexico until they pay for the wall.

Well, how large is it? Does Trump have any numbers? If not, he should shut up.

No shit for brains. He was talking about Mexico specifically.


You should take your own advice sonny.

our negotiators were Lighthizer (a guy who did Reagan trade deals, as Trump lives in the 80s & trying to copy Reagan as much as possible) and Kushner (aka Satan)

Trump probably doesn't even know what's in the deal, it's not like he would say anything different than he did if he had knowledge of it

largest ever, great for everyone, NAFTA sucked, yadda yadda

I have been listening to hin far longer than you have.

He could do something that would guarantee world peace forever and you would twist it into an insult.

You Sir, are very dangerous because of your hatred and your Trump Derangement Syndrome.

I doubt this is the largest trade deal ever made. Dishonest Donald is just lying as usual. Or he is talking without knowing what the hell he is talking about.

The free trade deal that the EU and Japan signed in July covers over 600 million people. This deal is obviously larger than the US/Mexican deal.

Trump quotes:

"The greatest Witch Hunt in political history"

"SPYGATE could be one of the biggest political scandals in history!" (it ended up being NOTHING)

"John Brennan, the worst CIA Director in our country’s history..."

"Slippery James Comey, the worst FBI Director in history..."

tax cuts: "biggest tax cut in US history" (false)

NAFTA: "worst trade deal ever"

Iran deal : "worst deal ever"

---

not technically relevant, but came across it in search & amusing:
"throughout my life, my two greatest assets have been mental stability and being, like, really smart"

Even if this trade agreement is the largest and greatest thing ever chances are it will never happen. The incoming president of Mexico isn't a fan of the United States and it is probably going to piss him off we didn't wait until he was in office to begin negotiations.

The Canadian response is they are happy Mexico and USA are starting to get closer to a deal and they look forward to joining talks soon. Could just be lip service but basically they are saying the USA and Mexico were so far apart there was no need for Canada to be wasting time with negotiations.

They still are probably wasting time by not waiting until the new president in Mexico takes office.

Just curious ... does this deal include funding for Trump's wall?

Didn't you hear? We don't need a wall. According to Nancy Pelosi if we mow the grass along the border people will quit sneaking across. We need Mexico to buy lawn mowers.
