Did Canada blink? New trade agreement as deadline loomed.


President Donald Trump will make his first public statement Monday about the new trade agreement struck between the U.S., Mexico and Canada, the White House said.

Trump, who has already taken a victory lap about the deal to replace the North American Free Trade Agreement on Twitter, will deliver his remarks on the United States Mexico Canada Agreement (USMCA) in the White House’s Rose Garden, press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders said in a tweet Monday morning.

  • The United States and Canada have agreed to a deal replacing the North American Free Trade Agreement, according to a senior U.S. administration official.
  • The new deal has been deemed the USMCA — the United States-Mexico-Canada Agreement — the official says.
  • Canada, America’s second largest trading partner, was left out when the U.S. and Mexico reached a preliminary deal in late August to revamp NAFTA.

    Blink? That would imply our current PM and negotiator are smart enough or savvy enough to try and pull a bluff. From what I can see, they are neither.

      Where did you get that? It means that they backed down. “First one to blink loses”.

        Yes, I understand that. I’m just saying, they aren’t smart enough to bluff. Bluster, yes, but in order to bluff, you have to understand what you’re up against in the first place. From what I could tell, they were just pandering to what they thought their voter base wanted. It backfired, because aren’t quite as vacuous as they are. Though, of course, they blame Trump instead of He of the Awesome Hair’s stupidity.
