    Looks like Can/Mex is trying to work some NAFTA scare tactics.

    Is GM looking to become the next Harley-Davidson? Because with its latest statement, the company appears to be trying to provoke an angry Trump tweet.

    Just a week after revealing that it would build the new Chevy Blazer in Mexico, the company said Friday that it could reduce US jobs if the US imposes tariffs on auto imports. 

    Trump famously threatened to impose a 20% tariff on cars and other automobiles imported from the EU after the trade bloc unveiled retaliatory tariffs on $3.2 billion of US goods.

          Another MORONIC Corporation that is trying to scare the American people. Here is the damn reality for GM, Harley, Canada, Mexico, China, EU, Japan etc.

          Our President is truly sitting on a Royal Flush while the rest of the World and the RINOs, CoC, Globalist, MSM etc. are stuck with an Ace High. They can bluff, scream, cry, yell and curse all they want but in the end PDJT is going to win!

          How can you fight or argue with the concept of reciprocal trade. The hypocrisy is actually very amusing. Our President has been talking about reciprocal trade for over a year. Americans absolutely understand the concept and a vast majority agree with it. If you are going to have tremendous tariffs on our goods, we are going to place the same on yours. What is fair is fair. You reduce your tariffs to zero and we will reduce ours to zero. The ultimate choice is on each and every country.

          That is the beauty of it. We are doing to them what they are doing to us. I absolutely love it! The longer you wait, the less access you will have and it won’t matter if you don’t take our goods because we will be swimming in all the winning!

        LOL! Let me guess a Ford owner! 😉
        I have owned and driven models from all the “Big Three” over the past 60 years along with a couple of Volvos (before Ford mucked with them) and my retirement car is a Chevy Malibu. Yeah had a Vega (Barf) I was young and the Wife liked it, a Beretta (double barf) again Wife’s car and a Buick Century (Lemon). But the 283 Biscayne, S15 Pickup and two Malibus were/are work horses.

        Not arguing just sticking up for my “Chivvies”. Auh, my son drives a Ford Max and thinks it’s the greatest thing since “canned beer”! Where did I go wrong!

            Oh you are dangerous! You just reminded me of my all time favorite car: ’65 Chevelle, 396 Big Block, close ratio 4-speed and high speed rear end and the biggest set of “street slicks” that would fit in the rear fender wells to keep it from “fishtailing” leaving a light and easy on the clutch! Oh yeah 2 progressive 4 barrels to feed the beast.

        • Funny. My first car was a 1956 Chevy Belair two door. My parents bought it off the showroom floor for $2800. At 16 it made the world a fun place.

        iboblando8, frankly I have driven chevys, Fords, Buicks, you name it and I will stick with my American made Toyota and without union interference. The once big 3 are no longer big and to threaten Trump will only make them even less of value.


      • Benjamin Dover says:

        Having purchased a 1982 Chevy Blazer new, and having nothing but problems with it, I gave up on GM products and vowed never to purchase another GM product again. My resolve was cemented by Obama’s GM bailout. My father, who served in WWII refused to buy Japanese autos because of their betrayals at the start of the war. GM’s betrayal of its bond holders and other secured creditors was equally odious.


    • Beenthere says:

      Don’t forget GM almost went belly up in 2008-2009. Obama’s govn’t took control of GM through various debt-swapping & other financial transactions. That’s why GM is now called Government Motors. BTW Obama put his ilk in exec positions over there too & I bet they are still there too.

      Don’t feel bad for GM. The economy is doing so well (except in CT) that any displaced worker will be able to find a good job soon after.

      Seems BM is taking the route of some countries who are assuming PT is bluffing, and that he’ll back down in the face of threats. Based on prior observation seems very clear PT is not bluffing but merely telling what his plans are, what he’s going to do. Too bad GM is underestimating PT’s resolve, but then again underestimating the President has been a trend among his opponents since he announced his run for the Presidency, they never learn, do they?

          Go in my opinion has made some terrible bad decisions since 2000. Why would any American think they are now smarter?
          My advice for the GM smart people, look along the tracks of the Trump Train. It has run over many spouting the status quo of all things against the folks and the workers of the USA.
          GM sales as all auto manufacturers will be down going forward, as all have sold into next years buyers. Add to that if GM thinks their Blazers can excel climbing the new border wall better than those built here……good luck! Might think Cuban buyers, would limit the uphill push.

            They are being foolish, but I’m thinking some globalist elements must be pulling those strings. In any case, it’s not too bright to ignore the warnings of the Trump team, they’re not fooling around, mean what they say. If any doubt, ask China, Canada, Iran, etc.

      The new Chevy Blazer is yet another small crossover SUV. It looks like all the rest of them and there are 13 models of that class from every manufacturer. I doubt it will sell well as a result.

      Companies are going to do what they have to do to survive and maximize their market share. Greed and profit are not 4 letter words! Tariffs are taxes and will force those with significant markets overseas to consider manufacturing for those markets on the other side of the tariff wall or lose those markets. GM and Ford has a long history of producing cars in Britain and Germany (taylored for those markets) because these markets were more interested in smaller more fuel efficient cars due to much higher cost of gasoline and diesel.

      What you are seeing is the dust settling around the present political climate. Tariffs are the President’s chief tool to bring sanity to a Global Market that has grown used to American largess since instituted post WWII. In post war Europe and Japan they needed a hand to establish a capital economy. After 70+ years they will have to learn to stand on their own like kids learning to support themselves.

      If the tariffs persist you will see a lot of repositioning of manufacturing both into and out of this Country. I don’t think the tariffs will persist and there will eventually be a leveling out but the ideal tariff free world economy is probably unobtainable also. Remember “You can’t always get what you want but if you try you may get what you need.” If our leadership had been economically savvy enough or listened to the likes of Donald Trump or Wilbur Ross over the years we wouldn’t be in this fix. They weren’t and didn’t so President Trump is forced to take take some big whaks with the big ax and let the chips fall.

      I am an old Engineer and “Worst Case Analysis” is how I think! And I think I have used may too many bits in this overly verbose response! I hate run on posts! Sorry!

        President Trump’s end game … beyond Reciprocal Trade without the Barriers & Tariffs:
        • Remove the EU’s American Trade-Surplus Piggybank
        • Accelerate the EU’s epiphany that their Socialism has “Run Out of Other Peoples’ Money”
        • Force the EU to fund whatever level of Citizen Benefits their economic environment can support.

      Freeland stated that Americans have been sending her letters, saying that things will be back to normal soon, and she has been encouraged by this.

        Dekester my Canadian brother, please do me a favor and share this with Ms. Freeland.

        We have already won with NAFTA. The rest is all theater being played out by our President and his Killers!

        From the article linked above:

        Guajardo earlier told El Heraldo newspaper that if a deal could not be reached, “we would be operating what some analysts have called ‘Zombie NAFTA’ … (one) that isn’t dead and isn’t modernized”.


        Business executives complain that uncertainty over the future of the 1994 agreement is hurting investment.

        It is unclear where the United States might give ground to win a quick deal. The Trump administration has embraced confrontational policies in its dealings on trade.

        Our President and his Killers understand that uncertainty will ultimately kill NAFTA over a period of a few years. It has already started!

        Here is Justin’s reality that is only getting WORSE!

        The woman reporter reiterates what the Reuters article stated.

        She states that the longer there is uncertainty with NAFTA, the more likely companies are going to open up businesses in the USA 🇺🇸 instead of Canada 🇨🇦!

        Dekester, Freeland and socks have just said they would continue to pay workers if NAFTA doesn’t allow what they have been doing for you and lying that they were Canadian made, and spending more here and there which means you REAL Canadians are going see your taxes raising more and more until, as Thatcher said, what do you do when the money runs out and is no longer there. Makes me think of Tweedledee and Tweedledum literally showing they have a clue about economics and socialism into communism is where they are headed for your Canada.

    While I applaud their efforts, there is a pattern that seems to be emerging that will, unfortunately, require DoJ-SEC attention. The major globalists are playing games with the Stock Markets in the US to enrich themselves as well as work to sabotage the President. Over the past 2 weeks there have been way too many swings from 3-digit or high 2-digit positive gains to negative or nearly unchanged positions on a daily basis. This smacks of algorithmic trading done in a fine tuned manner to reap profits and then tank the market. Something is very wrong with the pattern that is appearing.

    There is rumor that PDJT told aids that he wants US to get out of the WTO. “We always get f*cked by them [the WTO]. I don’t know why we’re in it. The WTO is designed by the rest of the world to screw the United States.”
    I think that is an excellent idea. I think we should be out of WTO and maybe UN as well. Let the rest of the world screws one another.
