What’s Trump’s Foreign Policy? America is Boss, America is First

Mexico says they want to negotiate with Trump AS SOON AS POSSIBLE.


Mexico’s new foreign relations secretary said Tuesday his country isn’t just willing to negotiate changes to the North American Free Trade Agreement, it wants to start talks as soon as possible.

Luis Videgaray said there’s “enormous uncertainty” following the U.S. election of Donald Trump as president. Trump has pressured companies not to move jobs to Mexico, warned he would tax those who do, and has vowed to renegotiate NAFTA.

Videgaray said in a Radio Formula interview that Trump’s actions have caused concern, adding “that is why this (negotiation) process is so important, to dispel this uncertainty.” He said talks should start “as soon as possible.”

Mexico’s peso weakened further Tuesday, closing at an interbank rate of 21.73 to $1.

Videgaray said his government’s main concern would be “how to protect jobs in Mexico,” and said “there are a lot of reasons to think the negotiation would be favorable for Mexico.”

He said Mexico is willing to negotiate over Trump’s plan to build a border wall. But Videgaray said Mexico won’t pay for the wall, calling that “unacceptable.”

Mexican manufacturing sectors such as the auto industry have benefited greatly from NAFTA, which went into effect in 1994. But wages haven’t risen much and Mexican farmers complain about massive imports of U.S. grain and other farm products.

  1. Those companies moved their manufacturing facilities to Mexico in order to keep wages down; way, way down. Did these idiots actually think they would be paid premium rates when the factories opened? If they want to keep those jobs they’d better find a way to cough up enough pesos to pay for that wall.

  2. Until Mexico can show that there is at least the appearance of law and order I can’t imagine them being viewed as a viable negotiating partner. You know that picture that comes up frequently of those Mexican looking guys, one grabbing his crotch, and another giving someone the finger, well we could use a gringo version of that.

  3. Got news for ya Julio, you will pay for the way one way or another. By taxation of money transfers from the US to Mexico by wetbacks, by large tariffs, or by selling us oil at a serious discount, you will pay.

  4. Typical pant wetting politicians. They cannot handle a real man being in charge. Could you imagine the destruction in Mexico if we returned all the illegals? The government would fall within two weeks.

  5. Let me make 4 predictions on US-Mexico relations in the near future:

    1. Mexico WILL pay for the wall.
    2. Mexico WILL also build the wall.
    3. Mexico WILL have their own people stop the people fron ever getting near the wall themselves.

    And finally, as part of any new trade agreement with Mexico, Vincente ‘I won’t pay for your fucking wall!’ Fox will be made to write a personal check for a $1000.00 to pay for the wall.

  6. You know there is nothing stopping Mexico from manufacturing their own brand of cars and exporting them to the US.
    Why do they need to be the manufacturing arm of GM/Toyota/Ford when they should be able to do everything themselves and keep the profits.
