Bloomberg reporting mexico/canada will be spared from tariffs if they agree to new nafta
quote:

The Trump administration will initially exclude Canada and Mexico from stiff tariffs on steel and aluminum imports, an exemption they would lose if they fail to reach an updated Nafta agreement with the U.S., White House trade adviser Peter Navarro said on Wednesday.

The two nations won’t be subject to tariffs on their steel and aluminum if they sign a new North American Free Trade Agreement that meets the satisfaction of the U.S., Navarro said, adding that other American allies could use a similar system to ask for an exemption.

If Nafta talks fall through, Canada and Mexico would face the same tariff as other nations, expected to be 25 percent on steel and 10 percent on aluminum.

Trump has received tons of deserved criticism on many issues, but this is the one I just plain don't understand. He's negotiating publicly instead of privately (better for transparency and puts pressure on everyone involved) and he's projecting a hardline stance to give us more leverage.

How are either of those things bad? The Obama admin worked on the TPP in smoke filled back rooms of Taiwanese whorehouses, the entire agreement wasn't released until "Surprise! We're going to do this! Oh by the way, copyright laws finna get frickED!" And everyone hated it.

Literally any other President who fought for a better deal for Americans would be lauded for standing up for the country, literally any other one. Trump gets shite on for "offending our allies" as if goddamn Canada should be who Americans should vote to protect and prosper.

You're assuming that what he says publicly as his intent is his actual intent. (Which with politicians, seems like a bad idea)

The goal may have never been to bring specific jobs to the US at all, but to get a better deal overall.

Just a thought.
