    Default Mexico and Canada Ready to Renegotiate NAFTA

    Drudge Report is reporting, Mexico and Canada are both indicating they are ready to renegotiate NAFTA with President Trump:

    Quote Canada PM says ready to renegotiate NAFTA with Trump

    Ottawa (AFP) - Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau said Thursday he is willing to renegotiate the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA), which US President-elect Donald Trump has said he wants to change or scrap.

    During the campaign, Trump called NAFTA the worst trade deal the United States has ever signed, while proposing protectionist measures to repatriate American jobs lost to free trade.

    "I think it's important that we be open to talking about trade deals," Trudeau -- a fierce defender of free trade, which helps bolster the Canadian economy -- told reporters.

    "If the Americans want to talk about NAFTA, I'm more than happy to talk about it," he said, adding that it was important to periodically reassess trade deals to ensure that they continue to be of benefit to Canadians.

    Trudeau called the president-elect on Wednesday to congratulate him on his election victory.

    Quote Mexico says ready to 'modernize' NAFTA with Trump

    MEXICO CITY: Mexico is willing to "modernize" the North American Free Trade Agreement with U.S. President-elect Donald Trump's incoming administration and Canada, but will not renegotiate the pact, the foreign minister said.

    Foreign Minister Claudia Ruiz Massieu said NAFTA has "yielded great results" for the three nations, but that there is an opportunity to make it "more beneficial" to all.

    "We are willing to talk about this with the new government and with Canada as well," Ruiz Massieu told CNN late Wednesday.

    "We think it is an opportunity to think if we should modernize it, not renegotiate it, but to modernize it," Ruiz Massieu said.

    NAFTA will be discussed with Trump's transition team in the coming months, she said.

    President Enrique Pena Nieto announced on Wednesday that he and Trump had agreed to meet, possibly before the New York billionaire's inauguration in January.

    Trump has vowed to renegotiate or rip up the 22-year-old free trade deal.

    Both of their economies depend on the US to survive, and Mexico in particular has had a parasitic financial relationship with the US over the past 30 years. That is going to change and they know it. That's partly why the peso fell when Trump's election was announced.

    Both have been living on the gravy train on the backs of American and Canadian workers and taxpayers for both country for a long time.

    China is going ape****.

    Good time to be proud to the American peoples who voted for Trump.
