President Donald Trump Previews NAFTA Plan ‘over the Next Two Weeks’

by Charlie Spierling, Breitbart:

President Donald Trump signed an executive memorandum on Thursday ordering the Secretary of Commerce Wilbur Ross to investigate steel imports. But he also previewed action on NAFTA.

“The fact is, NAFTA, whether it’s Mexico or Canada, is a disaster for our country,” he said, referring to the North American Free Trade Agreement. “We’ll be reporting back some time over the next two weeks as to NAFTA and what we’re going to do about it.”

Trump specifically cited Canada’s imported dairy products hurting farms in Wisconsin and New York and imports of lumber and timber.

“We’re going to have to get to the negotiating table with Canada very, very quickly,” he said.

A White House aide confirmed to Breitbart News that the president was serious about action on NAFTA in two weeks or less.

“As I traveled the country, I saw the shuttered factories, of the shuttered dreams, and I pledged that I would take action,” Trump said. “And I think it’s probably one of the primary reasons I’m sitting here today as President.

According to the White House, the following people attended the event representing the steel industry and union workers.

Beth Ludwig – AK Steel

Roger Newport – AK Steel

Thomas Gibson – American Iron & Steel Institute

John Brett – Arcelor Mittal

Conrad Winkler – Evraz Steel

John Bass – Nucor

John Ferriola – Nucor

Chuck Schmitt – SSAB Americas

Katie Larson – SSAB Americas

Time Timken – Timken Steel

Ryan Stenger – Timken Steel

Mario Longhi – U.S. Steel

Kelley Gannon – U.S. Steel

Leo Gerard – United Steelworkers (USW)

The investigation will determine whether foreign steel imports threatens national security under Section 232 of the Trade Expansion Act of 1962.

    ““The fact is, NAFTA, whether it’s Mexico or Canada, is a disaster for our country,” he said, referring to the North American Free Trade Agreement.”

    Ross Perot and his “giant sucking sound” comment about NAFTA had this pegged back in the early 1990s. Maybe we are just now waking up to the fact that he was right?

    I figured this to be the case as well, not for economic reasons, but because Bill ‘the rapist’ Clinton’s greasy fingerprints were ALL over this “deal”… and nothing good EVER came from that source.
