Trump reneges on NAFTA Pullout, for now.

According to WSJ sources, WASHINGTONThe Trump administration said it was no longer considering pulling out of the North American Free Trade Agreement, following a day of intense lobbying from business leaders and lawmakers who rallied to quash internal White House discussion of the prospect.

The White House said in a statement issued late Wednesday night that President Donald Trump had called his Mexican and Canadian counterparts following widespread reports he was considering pulling out of the 23-year-old pact that stitches the three economies tightly together.

Trump had been very aggressive during the campaign, calling NAFTA, ‘the worst trade deal of all time.’

This could be a move by the Trump Admin to use the NAFTA agreement as leverage to pay for the border wall. Either way this ends, NAFTA must be renegotiated or repealed or Trump is reneging on a major campaign promise.
