Preliminary Details of U.S./Mexico Trade Deal…

In direct relationship to the checkbook policy that impacts middle-class Americans the U.S./Mexico trade deal is the biggest win so far in Trump’s presidency.   There are such massive ramifications it could take days for anyone to comprehend how the granular details have such massive downstream consequences. The deal is incredibly complex.

At the 30,000 ft level, the deal positions Mexico to retain their current multinational investments, and through a series of sector-by-sector standards on origination the deal simultaneously closes the fatal NAFTA loophole.  The agreement makes an economic manufacturing partnership between the U.S. and Mexico; and for assembly products third parties will have to produce parts and origination material within the U.S. and Mexico.

U.S.T.R. Lighthizer has put some details forward:

♦The NAFTA Loophole closure is explained in Summary Form HERE; with emphasis on the Auto-Sector.  The key is a 75% part origination level for auto-assembly; and a 40-45% level for parts with a minimum $16/hr wage rate.  The source-origination rate (75%) is even higher than all previously forecast negotiation results.

Example of downstream consequences/benefits:  German auto-maker BMW recently built a $2 billion assembly plant in Mexico (almost complete).  Most of their core parts were coming from the EU (steel/aluminum casting components) and/or Asia (electronics).  Now the assembly plant will have to source 75% of the auto-parts from the U.S. and Mexico, with 45% of those parts from facilities paying $16/hr.  Result: BMW will need to modify their supply chain and build auto parts in the U.S. and Mexico.

♦Agriculture is another important sector, explained in Summary Form HERE.  CTH needs to dig into the details on this sector.  Overall it appears Mexico has agreed to a common set of food manufacturing safety standards. Additionally the removal of any/all subsidies in agricultural trade between the U.S. and Mexico.  There’s more, a lot more, but it will require some analysis akin to separating grains of sand with a toothpick.

♦U.S.T.R. Lighthizer also provides a Summary Fact Sheet HERE with a broad high-level review of the agreement principles.

  1. New “rules of origin” requirements to incentivize billions a year in vehicle and automobile parts production in the United States, supporting high-wage jobs.
  2. The strongest, fully enforceable labor standards of any trade agreement.
  3. New commitments to reduce trade-distorting policies for agricultural goods.
  4. Improvements enabling food and agriculture to trade more fairly.
  5. Strong and effective intellectual property protections.
  6. The strongest disciplines on digital trade of any international agreement.
  7. The most robust transparency obligations of any United States trade agreement.

NOTE: #7 is a critical point, with a great deal of emphasis, given the complexity of the rules of origin now constructed to close the NAFTA loophole.

White House Fact Sheet Available HERE.

CTH will have a lot more on the specific details, but we wanted to get the links to the fact sheets out quickly.   Because of the fundamentally flawed prior agreement, this new trade agreement has massive consequences far beyond what would normally be considered.

Not only is Asia, specifically China, impacted; but so too are the EU and other international trade partnerships.  The critical point is that the U.S. and Mexico have agreed to partner in our approach toward the rest of the world.  Outgoing globalist Mexican President Pena Nieto is not happy; incoming nationalist Mexican President Andres Manuel Lopez-Obrador is ultimately the winner.

Through the efforts of Robert Lighthizer (U.S.) and Jesus Seade (AMLO) the Trump administration has now closed one of the access routes into coveted U.S. market, exploited by multinational corporations and countries (using NAFTA). The Mexico route is secure, agreements are made, and now attention turns toward Canada.

Think about the BMW example above, the downstream ramifications within this agreement are massive.  It is not coincidental that Canada’s Foreign Minister Chrystia Freeland is in Germany coordinating the response.  Now that a deal with Mexico has been reached, Canada has lost all prior leverage.

Remember, the U.S. and Mexico have agreed to “no protectionist tariffs/subsidies” in the agricultural sector.  Canada protects its dairy sector with massive protectionist tariffs and subsidies.  It is doubtful Trudeau and Chrystia can retreat from their construct.

Therefore:

“I think with Canada, frankly, the easiest 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,” Trump said.

Canada responded:

Canada responded with a statement Friday night, saying: “Our focus is unchanged. We’ll keep standing up for Canadian interests as we work toward a modernized trilateral NAFTA agreement.” (link)

This will likely be the outcome.  Like it or not, Canada gets to continue protecting dairy sector and gives up its auto-manufacturing sector as a consequence.

Freeland is expected to arrive in the U.S. tomorrow….

      That’s old school negotiation for you.

      A bad negotiator creates an I Win You Lose agreement, and you burn a bridge for the next one. NAFTA was a good arrangement for 2/3 of the parties involved, and we’re on the losing side. Ergo, it’s gotta go.

      A good negotiator looks for We Win arrangements, because you are more willing to work with the other party again. And we need to work with Mexico in the long term, not only to keep immigration in check, but it creates markets. We can feed them, and they can make things for us, yes. But there’s so much more business we can do.

    This is what the President does best. It’s his wheelhouse! His lifetime of specialized deep experience in business and negotiations.

    Hopefully, one of the byproducts of his massive successes is that it will be a roadmap for future candidates. Showing that savvy, smart people from outside the swamp breeding ground of lawyers and lifelong activists and beaureacrats can cut through the crap and get winning results.

    The President may be a pioneer for the future if he continues to work wonders. No wonder the swamp is insane! Opening the door for outsiders (with different skill sets and backgrounds) is what they fear most.

    And speaking of Canada, it’s worth following how Ford does in Ontario. The Canadian swamp has already shown their solidarity against Bernier, as much from the so called Conservative swampsters and media as elsewhere. Longer term, Ford may have more national potential if he transforms Ontario.

    And keep your eye on Quebec. The epicenter of the dairy wars. There is a huge backlash against Trudeau using $147 million of their tax dollars to ‘settle’ immigrants. The provincial Liberal Party (Trudeau’s allies) are in danger of being booted out after 15 years in power.

    I wonder with Trump raising the wage of the Mexican autoworker and helping to improve Mexico’s main street economy (by breaking the stranglehold of the multinationals on the Mexican people), maybe a large chunk of illegals will start to self-deport back to Mexico and stop the drain on our economy. It would be much more efficient and cost effective than the ICE trying to find them and deport them themselves. All things being equal, most people with want to live near their family and in their own homeland.

    The details of the deal that I have read this far as provided by Sundance are quite good for the US…and Mexico, particularly the workers. 16 bucks per hour to make the car parts. THAT changes things in a big way for the blue collar Mexican citizen. Maybe this will put Mexicans, on a whole, in a different perspective…especially to those on the left. They are not you fruit pickers, babysitters and housecleaners that you get to use and abuse for 5 bucks an hour. 16 bucks per hour in Mexico will also create that thing…the thing that has reared its beautiful head in this country as of late. Hope. And it changes the Mass Mexican Exodus.

    Obviously, the deal looks just as good for U.S. citizens….and I expected nothing less from this crazy businessman we elected. Trump took the oldest, most sacred trade deal…showed it for what it was…and changed something nobody thought could ever be changed.

    When is the last time a President went to work on behalf of Mainstreet instead of Wall Street? A bit rhetorical on my part, I know….lol.

    THIS is exactly why I elected this naracisstic madman who always seems to need to have the last word.

    Promises made. Promises kept. And all of this was done while they are STILL trying the soft coup.

    I’d like to take this opportunity to tell every politician who was part of every sell out trade deal to take a gander at what Trump did here. They can all go to hell. That’s the nicest way I can say it.

      Just a point of accuracy Hispanics in my part of the world are making way more than $5 per hour. Many make $1200 per week driving skidder etc working in the woods. Many “Americans” can’t pass a drug test or will not show up to work consistently. Much work to be done in the area Of work ethic.

      Don’t pound me because I am very happy about this deal and about our president. Check my post history I’ve been here awhile and I’m pro American but I’m also realistic.

      I know many business owners and the #1 concern right now by a wide margin is labor. I don’t know about you but if someone can turn their nose up to making $1200 per week with little or no education that’s not the crumps everyone always talk about. There is no such thing as space labor in this area. Starting rates at the basement in manufacturing is $10 per hour and that’s a floor sweeper. Anyone who will show up to work everyday and try can make more than that quickly.

      How do we get people back to work. Personal experience it take culling through 20 employees to find 5 who can pass a drug test and show up consistently. It seems to me many Americans don’t have to work to eat and I can’t understand how so many people still haven’t made their way to the workforce.
      Anyway things are definitely headed in the right direction

  17. My thoughts are that this agreement is probably a win-win for both Mexico and the USA. Well if both win, then who is the loser? My guess is that China just got massively HOSED today.

    If you think about the China, USA, Mexico dynamic, who would you rather get cheap imported goods from? I would rather it be Mexico, and save the shipping costs.

    Despite his public comments, President Trump can’t stand Xi, and that fact that they have been ripping off the United States for 30 years. My thinking is that China just lost about 200 billion (per year) in manufacturing to be divided up between the USA and Mexico.

    The benefits for us would be tremendous:

    1) We would not be giving away are intellectual property to the greatest thief of the last 100 years, putting our economic and military security at risk. China makes it clear that they want to replace us as the world’s superpower by 2025.

    2) Shipping to/from Mexico is better for the environment than from China, and costs less.

    3) The Mexican economy would improve, meaning less incentive for illegal immigration into this country.

    4) Possibly less narcotic crime and drug cartel violence in Mexico.

    5) Trump’s approval ratings will shoot up with hispanics.

    6) Trump’s approval ratings shoot up with Blacks as well, as they are not going to have to compete as hard over cheap wages from the illegal immigration.

    7) This sends a message to any other country conducting trade with us that if you won’t come to the table in good faith, your goods will be made elsewhere.

      This. The Mexicans in the US often have family across the border. If the Mexico residents perceive Trump as dealing fairly and fruitfully with Mexico, that word will get back here to their family on this side of the border. Something like 20% of living Mexican-born people are currently residing in the US, legally and illegally, so the word will definitely get out. As I’m sure most of us do, I humbly pray that Mexico and its people prosper, under a fair and reciprocal system of trade. If that happens quickly enough, it’s an electoral winner for MAGA.

      On your point #4, I wonder if the Trump administration and incoming Mexican administration reached an “off the books” side deal . . . Once the Mexican economy starts to climb upward and border pressures lessen, they also partner to crush the cartels, militarily and economically. It wouldn’t surprise me if some of PDJT’s domestic enemies have some indirect connections to cartel businesses, so maybe the crushing of the cartels and the Big Ugly will be mutually reinforcing.

Other than that … MY President hasn’t made WAR his central mission. MY President has been focused on BUTTER … not GUNS.

    Everything MY President has done … is in the INTEREST of the American people. My God! What a RELIEF. After years of American-apologists-in-Chief, we finally have a President who’s PROUD to be an American. And not just ‘recently’ proud like that lunchlady in the last administration. No, MY President makes NO APOLOGY for America, hence her people … US! MY President has our backs like no … other … President … ever! I have been walking on air today. My SEP IRA was floating on air today! Thank you, President Trump … Thank you, and bless you and your family.

    Very impressive.
    A massive change that looks good for both US and Mexico.
    Who but Trump could even conceive of this.
    The diplomats of State and fellow swamp dwellers look so lame.
    And all by looking out for American workers.
    We must strain our intellect and imaginations to follow his thinking,
    Orange Hair and all into a MAGA future.

    Because I am optimistic by nature, I think this is important and positive
    for the whole world.
    I saw a hat in Karachi that said ” Make Pakistan Great Again ”
    Think about that.

    Here is what a zero that’s all talk and no action looks and sounds like. In office 8 years and he has no positive accomplishments, none, zip, nada. 🙄😄

      “In office 8 years and he has no positive accomplishments, none, zip, nada. ”

      _________________

      In fairness to Zero (never thought I’d be in a position to say that), ‘positive accomplishments’, defined as being positive for America, were the opposite of literally every objective of his treasonous administration.

      Many people still think Zero Hussein was monumentally incompetent because he achieved absolutely nothing positive for America in 8 years.

      What they don’t realize is that’s not even possible, i.e., even Chauncy Gardiner would have gotten SOMETHING right in 8 years, purely by accident.

      The fact that every single thing he did was a serious and damaging negative for America eliminates incompetence or chance from the equation, and reveals that his entire objective as leader of the United States was to destroy America, as much as humanly possible, from the highest office in the land.

      With premeditation and malice aforethought.

      High Treason.

      The Highest.

      For 8 years, without relent.

      He did more harm to America than all of the spies and traitors before him — combined.

      That was his true objective. That is his legacy. That will be the charge against him when he goes on trial for his life, and that will be the epitaph on his tombstone.

      Followed by He failed. We saved the Republic by electing Trump.

        Yes, his “Fundemental transformation “ of America. “Hope and Change” was sucked up by the gallons by foolish tools who have no thoughts except those given to them.

        THANK GOD he failed, although the damage done is significant and will be decades to turn around.

    “This will likely be the outcome. Like it or not, Canada gets to continue protecting dairy sector and gives up its auto-manufacturing sector as a consequence.”

    ________________

    So Canada is really going to sacrifice their entire car manufacturing industry to satisfy the dairy industry?

    I guess either the dairy sector is orders of magnitude larger than the the car sector… or Trudope is demonstrating his new math skills again?

    In the 80’s early nineties US made parts manufactures were thriving supplying US Manufactured Parts to Mexico and the rest of the World. Mexico loved buying US Products and did not trust Mexican made products. Then in 1992 NAFTA was signed and that signing put Mexico in a Recession! Try collecting from a Mexican during a Recession! Than in 1994 NAFTA become law. Where they was hundreds of Parts Manufactures prior to 1994 there is now only six US Companies today. But today they are Global Companies with parts made in China/Mexico and assembled here. Such a shame on our leaders then! It only made since to those few American Companies that were more concerned with greed than the American Worker!
    Then I read about the new Trade Deal with Mexico now and it brings me to joyous tears. This plan is going to bring back so many more great manufacturing jobs to the US and they will have US made Steel and Aluminum to make those parts with! Damn! Get those Trade Schools pumping out all the new jobs that will be needed in the Casting, Stamping and Sub Assemble businesses. Get the local Colleges pumping out all the new Accountants, Sales Mangers and Sales people needed to make and count all that new American $$ being earned! America First is what is making MAGA!!

    God Bless You President Trump!

    Trump’s deal is better for all three. It will kill Trudeau though. If he sacrifices dairy, he loses seats in Quebec and the next election. If he sacrifices the auto sector his party will be wiped in Ontario and lose the next election.
    Trudeau wants Chapter 11, which Trump weakened and the other two chapters that put multinationals over nations.
    Basically Trudeau is the negotiator for Quebec Dairy and Globalist Corporations. He is not a negotiator for Canadians.
    Former prime ministers have told him he has to sacrifice the sacred cow, will he listen?
