Since President Trump took office he has made it clear one of his top priorities would be renegotiating the terms of the North American Free Trade Agreement, otherwise known as NAFTA. His goal was to resolve various trade issues that he had previously campaign on. In the past, while it became a contentious issue both Canada and Mexico, they indicated they would be open to negotiating with President Trump.
Now, there have been increasingly large and substantial developments on the NAFTA front. This past week President Trump took part in meetings to finalize the new agreement. And those plans have now been formalized.
Chicks on the Right reported,
“When Trump was running for president, the media elites constantly lectured us about how he had no idea what he was talking about. They told us that the promises he was making were unreasonable and he could never accomplish any of those things. Flash forward two years and it’s abundantly clear that the media couldn’t have been more wrong.
For example, Trump promised that he was going to create jobs, boost the economy, and increase growth. The media laughed. The economy took off. There are plenty of things you can point to that Trump has accomplished that Democrats promised us he couldn’t. The latest example is NAFTA. Trump promised that he was going to renegotiate NAFTA and come up with a trade deal that puts the American people first. Many in the media said he could never get that done.
Chalk this one up as yet another example of Trump doing what he said he would do. We don’t see that from many politicians. He’s going to be tough to beat in 2020 especially when you look at the unimpressive bench the Democrats currently have.”
Fox News reported,
“President Trump on Monday announced a hard-fought trade pact with Canada and Mexico meant to replace the North American Free Trade Agreement, saying the deal would bring a “new dawn” for American auto workers.
“This is a truly extraordinary agreement for the United States, Canada and Mexico,” Trump said in the Rose Garden, surrounded by his trade-negotiating team. Trump spoke after it emerged that Canada and Mexico had agreed to a pact the administration has dubbed the “United States Mexico Canada Agreement,” or USMCA.
In a joint statement, U.S. Trade Representative Robert Lighthizer and Canadian Foreign Affairs Minister Chrystia Freeland said the agreement “will strengthen the middle class, and create good, well-paying jobs and new opportunities for the nearly half billion people who call North America home.””
New provisions with the U.S.- Mexico – Canada Agreement (USMCA) provide for several different things. These include labor conditions, digital trade, manufactured products, as well as agriculture produce just to name a few. However, one of the most prominent aspects of the USMCA was the inclusion of American dairy farmers who were given better access to the Canadian market.
As well, new guidelines were imposed that allow for a higher proportion of cars to be manufactured amongst all three countries instead of being imported from elsewhere. The dispute resolution system which as previously in place under NAFTA largely remained the same.
Provisions for automobiles will now allow no tariffs on trucks or cars that have 75 percent of their interior and exterior components that are manufactured in the three countries. This is an exponential and critical increased from the currently 62.5 percent requirement that is in place under NAFTA.
In the USMCA the dairy provisions are higher than the ones that Canada had initially agree to in the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP). But, the TPP was never ratified. This will allow the United States to have tariff-free access at 3.6 percent to the Canadian dairy market which is higher than what was under the TPP (3.25%). The Canadian dairy market is worth a total of $15.2 billion.
Canada has officially agreed to get rid of Class 7 pricing provisions on specific dairy products. While their domestic supply management will be allowed to remain in place as is. Finally, they also agree to raise the limit on duty-free products regarding purchases from the United States to $150. It was previously at the level of $20.
30 percent of the work on any vehicle must also be done by employees or workers who are earning a minimum of $16 an hour. Something that is a win for middle-class Americans who work in factories across the United States. These new changes appear to be big wins for the United States, especially as it pertains to international trade agreements. This has been a staple of the Trump administration and a policy they have finally upheld.

Bernie Sanders: “There Is No Middle Ground,” ‘We’re Going To Stop Using Gas & Coal’
Gotta love when Millionaire communists lecture you on what you can and can’t do. Good thing he will never be elected President!
Via The Daily Caller:
2020 candidate and self-described democratic socialist Bernie Sanders said that the United States has to stop using gasoline and coal, and that “there ain’t no middle ground” on the issue.
“It is no secret that we must transition away from fossil fuels, period. End of discussion. There ain’t no middle ground…There is no middle ground,” Sanders said during a speech Thursday in California.
The Independent Vermont senator released a climate plan Thursday modeled after the “Green New Deal” that called for $16 trillion in new spending to fight climate change.
A key part of the plan is “Justice for frontline communities,” which refers to “under-resourced groups, communities of color, Native Americans, people with disabilities, children and the elderly – to recover from, and prepare for, the climate impacts, including through a $40 billion Climate Justice Resiliency Fund.”
Sanders’ plan, which is modeled as a “Green New Deal,” also targets “environmental racism.”
“The Green New Deal must serve to address modern and historical inequities and environmental racism,” it reads.
Sanders has sought to separate himself from the field of other 2020 Democratic contenders by proposing far-left plans on a variety of issues.
On health care, Sanders supports a “Medicare for All” style plan which would eliminate private health insurance plans and give free health care to illegal immigrants. Continue Reading
Bernie Sanders Says His $16-Trillion Green New Deal-Like Plan Will Create 20 Million Jobs
Via Daily Caller:
Democratic presidential candidate Bernie Sanders introduced a $16.3-trillion plan similar to the Green New Deal on Thursday, which he says will create 20 million jobs.
The plan aims to make 100% of energy for U.S. electricity and transportation renewable by 2030 and have “complete decarbonization” by 2050, according to its outline.
Bernie Sanders just spoke at a rally in downtown Sacramento. Trump supporters showed up & they didn't attack or beat anyone. They just politely discussed their political beliefs with those in attendance. Wonder if MSM will cover that. @realDonaldTrump @DonaldJTrumpJr @Scavino45 pic.twitter.com/e1e8gAbZPW

“As President, Bernie Sanders will boldly embrace the moral imperative of climate change and mobilize the political will necessary for a wholesale transformation of our society, with massive investments in sustainable energy, energy efficiency, and a transformation of our transportation system,” his plan reads.

Dem Rep Says We Need Illegal Immigrants To Mow ‘Our Beautiful Lawns’ – WATCH
That is some serious white supremacy right there. The Democrats racist colors always show. They can’t hide that for long…and they sure make it clear on how they love slaves.
It isn’t conservatives that are racist…it’s the Democrat party!
Via The Daily Wire:
Rep. Tom Malinowski (D-NJ) explained to his constituents earlier in the week that illegal immigrants are necessary members of New Jersey’s 7th Congressional District because they are willing to take on the jobs that the community’s teenagers will no longer do.
“We have to think about the jobs because the reason this happens is because there are a lot of jobs in our community that, like it or not, for better or worse, Americans are not willing to take,” Malinowski told the crowd while appearing at a town hall meeting.
“I mean, who do you think is taking care of our seniors? Fifty percent of the eldercare workers in the state of New Jersey are immigrants, most of them legal — most of them documented — but certainly some of them are not,” he continued. “Who do you think is mowing our beautiful lawns in Somerset County? We don’t usually ask but a lot of those workers are undocumented.”
Malinowski contended that the illegal immigrants residing in the area are able to fill the gap as teenagers who historically have been working menial jobs are now focused more on a white collar education in the technology sector.
“There just aren’t a lot of kids who — sorry — are from Montgomery High [School], who are going to be doing that full time,” the Democratic lawmaker said. “You guys are going into robotics, for goodness sake.”
Malinowski’s controversial comments come as he prepares to seek a second term in the congressional swing district. The freshman congressman, who previously served as the Assistant Secretary of State for Democracy, Human Rights, and Labor under former President Barack Obama, successfully flipped his red district blue during the 2018 midterm elections after he edged out longtime incumbent Rep. Leonard Lance (R-NJ).
Four of New Jersey’s twelve House districts were won by Democrats after decades of being reliably red, including Malinowski’s newly acquired seat. Continue Reading
