Any surprise on this?
Trump’s rants and bellicose talk very seldom leads to much of anything….
It’s just the way he does things…
He leaves it up to new economic flucky Larry Kudlow to advise of a actually shape of things between the US , Canda and Mexico…His party people and base won’t be happy if he attempts to do so…
President Donald Trump will not withdraw from NAFTA, but it’s unclear whether the United States can reach a new deal with Canada and Mexico, White House chief economic adviser Larry Kudlow said Sunday.
“We won’t withdraw from NAFTA. We are heavy into negotiations,” Kudlow said in an interview on CBS’ “Face the Nation,” where he fumed over criticism that Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau made Saturday of Trump’s decision to impose tariffs on Canadian steel and aluminum products.
Kudlow characterized Trudeau’s comments, made at a closing G-7 news conference, as a “betrayal” of the goodwill that Trump and other leaders had shown at the international meeting in Charlevoix, Quebec.
Kudlow repeated the possibility that current NAFTA agreement could be divided into separate bilateral pacts with Canada and Mexico, but then added a new deal might not be possible at all.
“I don’t know [if negotiators will reach a deal], because I think, again, Trudeau’s very unfortunate statements, his betrayal. He betrayed Trump,” Kudlow said.
The three NAFTA partners have been negotiating a new agreement for 10 months as of next weekend and still appear to be far apart because of many controversial U.S. demands….
