Nancy Pelosi has every incentive to snub Trump and let his new NAFTA die

President Donald Trump is a re-gifter. The question is whether soon-to-be House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., will be impressed.

Trump signed a symbolic trade deal with Canada and Mexico at the G-20 Summit last week. Despite the pageantry and the new name, the U.S.-Mexico-Canada Agreement, trade analysts agree that the deal makes only marginal changes to the North American Free Trade Agreement. Now Congress has six months to accept or pass entirely on what is essentially a rewrapped and slightly refurbished NAFTA.

More than likely, that decision will belongs to Pelosi in the New Year. Odds are good she won’t look favorably on the package for two reasons.

Schumer already spoke in favor of the new agreement. If Pelosi and the dems drop it then we know nothing is going to change for the next 2 years and you suburbanites that voted democrat got exactly what you deserve. Nice job you morons!!
