The left is always looking for a way to attack President Trump.  This isn’t anything new, but it’s something that we must vigilantly remind the world of at times.

If we aren’t quick to point out the absurdity of it all, the “resistance” itself will become commonplace, forever skewing the way in which Americans relate to one another.

Remember folks, there is nothing normal about the sort of animosity we’re seeing in DC these days.  This is new and unusual, to say the very least.

Last week, as a resistance rat in the West Wing leaked a damning statement regarding Canada, supposedly coming from President Trump himself.  The reason?  To attempt a derailing of the NAFTA negotiations that were set to take place in the coming hours.  This treacherous move was widely lambasted by political observers the nation over, but, in the end, it could be a blessing in disguise.

Delaying a revamped North American Free Trade Agreement is actually a win-win-win. Canada and the United States will keep talking despite missing a Friday deadline to conclude trade talks. Negotiators will need to move quickly to avoid the risk of fresh demands from the next Mexican government. But getting a deal that all sides can sell is more important.

Ottawa and Washington also appeared to remain far apart on certain issues. Trump has slammed Canadian tariffs of up to 270 percent on dairy imports. Canada objects to the U.S. demand to eliminate dispute panels for anti-dumping complaints.

That’s why it’s encouraging that both sides will continue negotiations next week. The Friday deadline was set because of the 90-day notice period Congress needs before a deal can be concluded. Meeting it would enable Mexican President Enrique Peña Nieto to sign the pact before he leaves office at the end of November.

But the parties have some wiggle room because the deal text doesn’t have to be released until the end of September. Trump gave notice to Congress on Friday that a trade pact with Mexico would be concluded by the end of November, and Canada could join “if it is willing.” Yet Trump’s threat to do a deal with Mexico alone rings hollow because Congress has signaled it would reject a bilateral deal.

As with all things Trump and trade, it again looks as though the NAFTA negotiations will work out despite the damage that the democrats have attempted to saddle them with.

I believe this is what the President would call “winning bigly”.
