it seems that Canadian Prime Minister, Justin Trudeau, might have bitten off more than he can chew. IN a recent Townhall meeting, he laid out his plans for Canada's involvement in NAFTA saying:
“We aren’t going to take any old deal.” “Canada is willing to walk away from NAFTA if the United States proposes a bad deal. We won’t be pushed around.”
Isn't he missing something here? Or is he playing strictly for the home audience?
Trump wants either NAFTA to benefit the US more, or out altogether. Trudeau saying he will walk away is not a valid threat, because Trump has already said he is more than willing to scrap the whole thing.
And why is the American media not calling Trudeau an isolationist, a madman, a racist, for threatening to end NAFTA…they did it when Trump said the same thing months ago, why not for Trudeau? It's almost as if they have a different set of standards for anyone other than Donald Trump.
“Canceling it would be extremely harmful and disruptive to people in the United States,” Trudeau said. “We are going to keep negotiating in good faith.” “We are confident we are going to be able to get to the right deal for Canada, not just any deal.”
Isn't this what Trump has been saying? Is Trudeau perhaps just trying to make himself look far more involved and important than he actually is? I respect any man or woman that tries to do the best for their country, but perhaps Trudeau needs to step up and speak directly to Trump about what he really wants instead of laying out his agenda in small Townhalls.
