No. of Recommendations: 1
-Withdrawing from negotiations on the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) which was detrimental to US business
-Renegotiating NAFTA agreement with Canada and Mexico, creating the United States-Mexico-Canada Agreement (USMCA) to better benefit the US (e.g., auto companies were required to manufacture more parts within the USMCA trade area).


These two claims contradict each other. "Trade wars are easy to win"--remember? So no need for trade agreements. But then Spankee WANTS a trade agreement with Mexico and Canada. Why? He just quit the existing trade agreement, so why want a new one? Irrational (definition of Spankee).

How *is* that "trade war" with China going, anyway? Lots of taxes being collected by China and the US, but is anyone BUT the govts winning that trade war?

-Implemented trade restrictions with China to lower the U.S. trade deficit

What trade restrictions?

-The administration’s 25% tariff on steel plus 10% tariff on aluminum imports to counteract anti-competitive practices of other countries

Can you say "tax increase"? ROFLMAO !!!

Those other countries then imposed taxes on goods imported from the US, causing US businesses to lose those export sales.

And don't forget the Big One: The Spankee Plague. Spankee owns it. Why are you NOT giving him credit? ROFLMAO !!!
