Trump is acting very fast when it comes to trade deals
It has been reported that he is “expected to sign an executive order as early as Monday to renegotiate” the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA) with Canada and Mexico.”
This comes after we heard he would be renegotiating with them yesterday, as well as meeting the Canadian Prime Minster and the Mexican President.
Next on the chopping block is the Trans-Pacific Partnership, which Trump is backing out of entirely. As Fox News reported: President Trump is set to kick off his first full ‘work day’ in the White House by signing an executive order withdrawing the United States from a controversial Pacific-nation trade deal, Fox News is told.
The president is expected to sign an order taking the U.S. out of the Trans Pacific Partnership agreement, which he railed against during the campaign and which Hillary Clinton previously supported before distancing herself from the deal.
The executive order, and possibly others, are being signed after a weekend of introductory meetings and perfunctory duties marking the transfer of power. Trump has said he considers Monday his first real day in the office.
