Donald Trump ran for President to undo the horrible deals past Presidents such as Bill Clinton agreed to.
His campaign to Make America Great Again centered on this one promise.
That is why all hell is breaking loose after what Trump did to Bill Clinton.
Donald Trump Undoes One Of Bill Clinton’s Legacy Achievements
During his campaign, Donald Trump railed against trade deals like NAFTA.
Bill Clinton signed NAFTA, which had wrecked the American industry.
Trump stated this deal shipped jobs overseas and allowed other countries to take advantage of America.
He promised to cancel the deal altogether unless Mexico and Canada agreed to pro-America changes.
The three countries began talks this year, while anti-Trump journalists made fun of Trump’s threats to put tariffs on goods from those countries.
The President – however – saw the tariffs as a chance to force Canada and Mexico to the table.
Their industries had done very well under the NAFTA agreement, so Trump had to pressure them.
Trump Scores A Big Victory
Trump’s gamble paid off.
Anti-Trump journalists were stunned when Trump and Mexico’s President agreed to change NAFTA.
Trump said he was renaming a new deal that would benefit American industries and workers.
“They used to call it NAFTA. We’re going to call it the United States-Mexico Trade Agreement, and we’ll get rid of the name NAFTA,” Trump stated.
The new agreement benefits America carmakers and textile companies.

*75% of content of cars sold in the US made in US or Mexico

Anti-Trump reporters laughed at Trump for thinking he could strike a new deal.
They claimed that because he was a racist, Mexico would never agree to terms that would profit America.
But Trump has always stated that the U.S. holds the upper hand in any deal.
Other countries need to be able to sell their goods in America.
Trump used that advantage to win a new deal, even when his critics claimed it was out of reach.
Donald Trump’s Next Step
Since Canada is also part of NAFTA, Trump threatened to make the new deal just between America and Mexico in order to force Canada to accept the new agreement.
He said he would impose new tariffs if Canada does not agree to the new deal.
“I think with Canada, frankly, the easiest thing we can do is to tariff their cars coming in. It’s a tremendous amount of money and it’s a very simple negotiation. It could end in one day and we take in a lot of money the following day. But I think we’ll give them a chance to probably have a separate deal. We can have a separate deal or we can put it into this deal,” Trump stated.
Canadian President Justin Trudeau realized Trump was serious and spoke with Trump about a new NAFTA agreement.

Trump proved the critics wrong with his new NAFTA deal.
Anti-Trump journalists tried to scare the American people with doomsday stories about the economy tanking if Trump ditched NAFTA.
But the President knows that America holds all the cards.
