Isn't paying for the wall and threats on taxing Mexican imports a negotiating tactic for NAFTA?
80% of Mexico's exports are made to American markets. The needed enhanced border security will be paid for by Mexico one way or another. Any changes in how those exports reach their American markets affects Mexico's economy more than it hurts the USA. Soon enough NAFTA will be up for changes. For the new rules to benefit all concerned, agreeing on the wall and trade details will have to be negotiated first. This is part of the art of such dealings.
People dealing with Trump will be desperate just to get an almost fair deal, with the pressure. If that makes sense. They will be happy to trade for less than they could have got. You are right it is an art.
great...a shyster gummint.that might make you proud. not me.
I cannot find the survey but it was like 90% of American exports other than physical commodities are bought by the 10% richest in other countries. We do not export crap. Those countries will not tax us as our goods are bought for quality no cheapness
Let's consciously cool the rhetoric and all do our own jobs well and participate as well as each of us can to actually make America great again by loving our neighbors even when we disagree with their social and political views. No vitriole and frown
