Trump has ‘agreed not to terminate NAFTA at this time,’ Canada and Mexico told

WASHINGTON — President Donald Trump on Wednesday told the leaders of Mexico and Canada that he will not pull out of the North American Free Trade Agreement, just hours after administration officials said he was considering a draft executive order to do just that.

The White House made the surprise announcement in a read-out of calls between Trump, Mexican President Enrique Peña Nieto and Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau.

    Trump was probably impressed by that fancy skin treatment Trudeau gets.

      Oh, and must not forget the hair. I am sure Trump is wanting to find out which shampoo he uses.

    Trump’s a windbag.

    This is hysterical. Welcome to negotiations, Trump-style. Get out the popcorn, kiddies, and enjoy the show.

    Keep your opponent unbalanced. While the governments of Canada and Mexico sigh with relief…wait a month or two…then Pres Trump will come knocking….and as Don Vito Corleone said “I’ll make him an offer he can’t refuse.”

  • Yet he promised to scrap NAFTA.

    He should just do it. That would really screw over Trudeau’s handlers and whoever is running Mexico.
