NAFTA Negotiations to Begin Almost Immediately, Trump Tells Senior Team

from Sputnik News:

At a swearing-in ceremony for his senior White House team, new US President Donald Trump revealed that he intends to begin negotiations on NAFTA with the Mexican president before the end of the month and has several other meetings with international leaders lined up.

Addressing the assembled staff in a White House East Room ceremony, Trump first promised aid for the tornado-hit states of Georgia, Florida and Alabama, where 16 died and many more were injured in a weekend of violent weather.

“The tornadoes were vicious and powerful and strong and they suffered greatly,” Trump said. “So we’ll be helping out.”

The president then confirmed that he would be meeting with Prime Minister of the UK Theresa May and President of Mexico Enrique Peña Nieto in the very near future, as well as with Prime Minister of Canada Justin Trudeau.

On his meeting with the Mexican president, Trump elaborated. “We will be meeting with the President of Mexico, who I know, and we’re going to start some negotiations having to do with NAFTA… we ran a campaign somewhat based on NAFTA.”

Negotiations will also cover immigration and border control, the president said.

Trump had some praise for his frequent campaign punching bag. “Mexico has been terrific, actually… and the president has been really very amazing, and I think we’re going to have a very good result for Mexico, for the United States, for everybody involved,” he said. “It’s very, very important.”

He also promised his staff that they would do great things “over the next eight years,” a line that got applause from the otherwise solemn room.

Trump told his team the US was “going to come out ahead; way, way ahead,” repeating the “America first” theme he struck in his inaugural address.

Trump’s son-in-law Jared Kushner was among those sworn in. Kushner is to serve as a senior adviser to the president.

    Trump has hit the ground RUNNING.

    Look at him sprint toward the job in front of him!

    He has his finger on the BUTTON, it is the button that closes the gate of illegal immigration. Push it Donald, Push it!

    So far, so good.

    Just received an email from Michigan Democratic Senator Debbie Stabenow, informing how she and some other Demonrats have filed a bill to withdraw from the Trans-Pacific Partnership.
    How like these lying two-faced rotten Democraps to try to take credit for something Trump was going to do. They had plenty of opportunity to file this bill while Obama was in office, but didn’t. Giving credit where due, Stabenow has been against the T-PP all along, but then placed party politics above the best interests of her constituents.
