In an early morning tweet, Trump caved after he campaigned on getting rid of the long-standing NAFTA trade agreement among three North American countries: US, Canada, and Mexico. Days ago, the president appeared to be picking a fight with one of our greatest allies, Canada, over accusations of dumping cheap milk and lumber onto our nation’s economy.

His tweets made it sound as if this country’s neighbors were begging him to stay in the North America Free Trade [NAFTA] agreement:

‘I received calls from the President of Mexico and the Prime Minister of Canada asking to renegotiate NAFTA rather than terminate. I agreed.’

Trump continued with a not-so-veiled threat, that if two countries did not play along to his game, he would kill NAFTA:

‘…subject to the fact that if we do not reach a fair deal for all, we will then terminate NAFTA. Relationships are good-deal very possible!’

Canada or Mexico rank as the first or second export market for more than 30 states. This is especially true for small business exporters. With NAFTA, the two countries have provided growth to over 140,000 small to mid-sized businesses.

Almost 60 percent of all Canadian and Mexican imports use Made-In-America materials and service.

Trump did not do Canada and Mexico a favor. They helped the US.
