Great Trade Deal - For American Companies and Mexican Workers

There has to be a better name for this abomination than USMCA.

Everyone is for it, lotta smiles all round, bipartisanship.

Republicans gave here too. Instead of pharma being protected from generic competition in Mexico for 10 years they'll lose that monopoly, in Mexico. Of course we here will continue to pay the inflated outrageous prices. That must really sting. What a concession. Not.

Where the candidates stand on Free Trade

If you want to win the MidWest you have to oppose FTA's, but every single large corporation and wealthy donor supports FTA's. So ever since Bill Clinton, both parties have tried to obfuscate their position on the issue.

President Trump's position on FTA's is complicated.
He did tank TPP, but he's soft on TTIP.

Trump is blowing up globalism

Trump is an idiot. He's easily the dumbest president this country has ever had, but even a stopped clock is right twice a day.
I'm no fan of globalism, because in globalism the multinational rules the national. Democracy does not exist at the multinational level, only capital does.
That's why I'm tickled by Trump's incoherent, childish antics this week.
