The 90 day clock on comes in effect if and when Trump actually pulls the switch to kill NAFTA. He has not. He has threatened this that and the other but knows better.
But...once if Trump does actually throw the switch to kill NAFTA,
Canada now has a MUCH better bargaining position and time on its side too. Trump knows this.

I hope he does. Everybody including US AND Canadian workers and consumers will get a better modernized deal.
We'll go back to working and building together.

Any trade deal under Trump's term in office is not worth the paper it is written on , anyway. We can wait. We are your best export customer.

Is this gonna be one of donalds great deals much like north korea?
I take it you prefer the old deals where this country takes it in the a$$.
I prefer deals that work...not what trump has done so far.
You prefer being threatened daily by a nut who did have rockets and nukes ...funny how we don't hear him doing that anymore huh?

What world are you living in

To the meme above, insert "... who inherited his fortune and has been involved in several bankruptcies" after the first part and "... who has earned every part of what little I have and hasn't gone bankrupt" after the second part.

It's completely embarrassing what Canada has said and done in these talk.

Now it's all come back to bite us in the azz. I said it back then and it came true.

Out lefty virtue signaling negotiating team thought they knew best when at first the wanted gender equity , indigenous people and other shyt included in nafta..and that Canada would NOT sign a deal unless Mexico was involved..because at first trump was willing to work with Canada on its own

So how did that plan work? Mexico said F you to Canada and worked a deal without Canada. The gender and indigenous crap was ignored and called idiotic and has nothing to do with trade deals

Amazing how stupid out lefties look now huh,, staring down the barrel of a huge tariff gun and them dancing around like cockroaches when the light turns on.

Now we have just a few days till a deadline..and our lefties are not mentioning gender or indigenous being included or that other crap

What a mess Canada is in now..all because we have a woman leading our countries trade deal who has zero experience at that and was just an author of fiction books and a journalist before having this crucial role

Now it's take a take it or leave it option in a few days...dumb dumb dumb

Don't forget "who's recovery from those bankruptcies has been funded by Russia organized crime and hes repaying the debt by systematically purging the FBI and DOJ of investigators and prosecutors with any expertise in Rusdian mafia."

That PLUS submit the replacement 3-way deal congress authorized for fast-track approval. Nothing has been written so there is nothing to submit

A 2-way deal would need full congressional approval, 90 days doesn't apply to that.

Then backing up the release "agreement" is still 99.999% NAFTA with tiny tweaks that effectively change nothing. It the create a problem by saying theirs a problem, scream about the problem, then solve the problem simply by saying it's fixed. It's nothing but theater for the ignorant while it cost US companies a full year of growth
