President Trump Tweets Optimistic Outlook Toward U.S. Mexico Future….

A year ago it seemed almost impossible to see a trade agreement with Mexico that would facilitate the interests of both countries. However, with the successful election of Mexican President Andrés Manuel López Obrador (AMLO), a remarkable populist shift dramatically changed the landscape within the Mexican economic outlook and policy.

President Trump’s tweet today hints toward a much bigger picture we have recently been discussing.  Against the likelihood Canada will not join the U.S-Mexico trade agreement. The Mexican government is affirming their intent to go forward with a bilateral trade deal if needed because the U.S-Mexico joint agreement is in their best interests.  According to Mexico’s Chief Negotiator, Kenneth Smith-Ramos:

“We hope the U.S. and Canada will conclude their bilateral negotiation shortly. If that is not possible we are ready to advance bilaterally with the U.S … the agreement in principle that we closed with the U.S. is positive for Mexico because it preserves free trade and modernizes our trade agreement …”

Outgoing Mexican President Peña Nieto, structured his economic policy around accepting multinational corporate investment, facilitating the requests of Wall Street investment banks, and the predictable parasitic outcomes that follow. Exfiltration of wealth and exploitation of resources/labor are an outcropping of predatory multinational trade exploitation, ie. “globalism”.

Retention of the multinational schemes generally leads to massive corruption. In the U.S. this corruption is known as “lobbying”, in Mexico the process is called ‘bribery’; however, the activity is the same.

The incoming Mexican President, Lopez-Obrador (AMLO), is more of an economic nationalist; and quite remarkably his economic outlook, at least as his team has described the objectives so far, is quite Trumpian.

You might even say: “Make Mexico Great Again”.

Both U.S. President Trump and Mexican President-elect AMLO have similar outlooks toward predatory multinational corporations and economic exploitation. If you think about how Mexico was used by the multinationals in the past twenty years; and then think about a very real possibility of a U.S President and Mexican President having an economic friendship; well,… holy cats, those multinationals could be remarkably nervous right now.

AMLO supports labor and has an actual agenda to create a strong working-class or middle-class.  The wealth disparity within Mexico has always been a foundational issue that has led to a tremendous amount of corruption.

Similarly, President Trump supports labor.  Likely because of his positive relationships with labor unions as a private sector builder, Trump was the only republican candidate who advanced pragmatic opinion toward organized labor in 2015, 2016 and, as president, in White House meetings where he invited labor officials.  President Trump’s economic agenda is laser focused on a strong middle-class.

AMLO views Wall Street multinationals as predatory by disposition; Mexico has suffered from industrial exploitation, especially in the agriculture sector.  President Trump also views those same multinationals as tending toward predatory behavior, and he has targeted many specific corporations for attention due to their participation in the erosion of the American middle-class and the U.S. manufacturing base.

AMLO is a strong Mexican Nationalist. President Trump is a strong American Nationalist. Within almost all of President Trump’s foreign policy speeches on economics, he openly accepts that all nations should make decisions based on their individual and nationalistic needs.  Trump does not see economic nationalism as adversarial; he points out that trade agreements based on both interests are entirely possible, and actually easy to construct.

As long as AMLO stays away from the authoritarian tendencies of power, ie. government ownership of private industry – and the slippery slope of soft-Marxism, surprisingly he and President Trump are likely to have a great deal more in common than most would think. Both populists; both nationalists; both rebuke the elitist trappings of globalism and intend on executing economic policies for the majority of their citizens.

Because they have more in common on the economics of policy, this explains why the framework of the U.S-Mexico trade agreement between Robert Lighthizer (representing Trump) and Jesus Seade (representing AMLO) was possible to construct.

Lighthizer and Seade held long meetings after formal U.S-Mexico daily negotiations, and together this relationship appears to have been very important in how the deal framework was structured. Right now both teams are filling in the details based on common objectives.

With AMLO and President Trump, Mexico and the U.S. have joint-interests in an economic trade bloc. It is actually quite stunning when you think about the economic power that both nations can hold if their mutual and individual interests remain at the forefront.

President Trump and President Lopez-Obrador have common objectives; and with the economic approach outlined by AMLO toward using Mexico’s energy resources as leverage for expanded investment, the U.S. is well positioned to help.  Mexico needs independent collateral to break the cycle of dependency on overseas money (investment).  Mexico needs policies and partners that can make Mexico, and the Mexican people, independently wealthy.   Guess who the bestest partner would be?  Yup, President Trump.

President Trump is well positioned to assist Mexico via a united trade bloc with expanded cross-border investment for economic development.

AMLO wants a higher standard of living for Mexican workers; President Trump wants greater parity between Mexican workers and their U.S. counterparts. Heck, it was U.S. Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross and USTR Robert Lighthizer who first proposed raising the Mexican minimum wage. Now both countries have agreed to an incremental Mexican minimum wage aspect of $16/hr within the auto sector.

Combining the wage aspect with the content and origination agreement, this has become a win/win for both AMLO and President Trump. The multinationals within the auto-sector might not like it, but they’ve already put a massive amount of money into plant and manufacturing investment in their existing Mexican footprint. They have no choice.

In an generally overlooked outcome the nationalist interests of Mexico, specific to AMLO, are very close to alignment with the nationalist MAGA agenda of President Trump.

Unfortunately, Canada is the ‘globalist’ oddball in this tri-fecta; which makes a trilateral deal almost impossible, and explains why Mexico is so willing to sign a bilateral agreement.   The U.S. economy is expanding at an unprecedented rate, and Mexico prepares to surf the MAGAnomic tsunami known as Donald Trump.

President Trump can see that independent economic future for Mexico based on a partnership that protects the interests of both nations.  It certainly appears that AMLO can see the same vision.

Remarkable times.

            My belief is that Mexico has great resources but that corruption was their main problem. If Mexico can become air conditioned and get their plumbing up to US code, they have a chance of becoming a place where people want to live and not escape. Oh, there also has to be a respect for human dignity and the desire to have people live a more comfortable life. Then, Mexico can become another country in the Americas that attracts people. Yep, people really don’t want to leave home.
            Then we would just have to take back the southwestern states that have been taken over by illegal immigrants, don’t we?

                They say that for a country to be a 1st world one, it needs three things, as a baseline:

                1) voltage-stable electricity
                2) potable water from the tap
                3) reliable highspeed internet

                Mexico has none of these. Trust me. I am lucky when I get 5 mps on my signal, ans most of MX is still on DSL. We should be getting fiber optic in November. My voltage goes from 108 to 140 in a day. Need voltage regulators on several things. If you want safe water, you have to stall your own whole house filtration system for water.

                Of what money there is to repair these things, much goes intomthe pockets ofvthe politically connected, so it is not spent on what it is appropriated for.

                • Both 1 and 2 have been true for a long time. 3 is a relatively recent infrastructural demand, but at this time, a very important one.

                  It is my understanding that AMLO ran as much on an ‘anti-corruption’ platform as a ‘nationalist’ platform, so, hopefully he can address the ‘corruption’ problem in Mexico (though, to be honest, even the US has problems with this if in no other form than ‘lobbying’).

                  I can foresee US ‘infrastructure’ business partnering in Mexico to address 1, 2, and 3 to the benefit of America and Mexico.

                  If the US can assist Mexico in raising the standard of living in Mexico, it may reduce some of the immigration tensions between the US and Mexico because the Mexico will be a more attractive place to live and work.

                  My impression is that most Mexican nationals living in the US would prefer to be in Mexico if they could live well in Mexico.

                  Improving infrastructure would raise the value of Mexican labor as well because that labor would be more productive (in the technical sense of output/hour).

                  Between the US and Mexico, it is the transnationals and their lobbyists who are our mutual enemy.

      (1) Because Obrador will not be sworn in until December. They have a long transition period after the election. Further, the new legislature was sworn in on 1 September. Do not think they would take kindly to the old government sabotaging the new.

      (2) I speculated before that Obrador and his predecessor got tired of Canada leaning on them during the negotiations period and probably became apparent that Peter Pan and Tinkerbell did not have Mexico’s interests at heart. It was all about them.

There is nothing in it for him to blow it up or hinder it, and could actually position him to be able to make a positive contribution in the future. He’s a smart guy and could be looking to having a continuing career. This is history in the making, why would he not want to be a part of forming THE grand trade deal between Mexico and the United States that will shape the world for a century?

          Read this to the surprising and exciting conclusion. Catch up to Q in the process.

          You know – this post just convinced me of something. I have always thought that “Frank Marshall Obama” was BS, but I’m going to change my mind on that.

          The resemblance here is actually as close as some people to THEMSELVES. I’m almost blown away by it.

          I think Q is right about the “spouses and family” thing. Spouses, we have seen over and over and over in Spygate. THAT is proven. They sync up that way. But I’m seeing WHY they are going with inheritance now – and it makes GAME SENSE. It has REAL STRATEGIC POWER.

          I think that socialists of all stripes are deep believers in familial continuity of ability, and WILLINGLY DECEIVE the world about this stuff. They WEAPONIZE their own rabbit-like behavior and planned/unplanned pregnancies. Hidden Castro. Hidden Davis. Hidden Fuehrer.

          They believe in inherited leadership ability because YEAH IT WORKS and has done so since monarchy and back to earliest days, and before. But the best way to keep that ability in play, despite prior generations having been outed as “bad guys” by the other side, is in fact to HIDE THE INHERITOR.

          Socialists once INSTALLED can openly use inheritance, like Kim in Korea. But to initiate, it helps to have “clean slate” players to get past suspicions.

          Castro was a brilliant guy, but his main weapon was CHARISMA. Baby Castro has it. No doubt about it.

          PS – you just solved why the Brin/Wojcicki clan (two massive red diaper cases) is going after public DNA. THIS is the crux of Google meets 23andMe. Not hidden objective. Hidden objective of objective.

          Can you see what I’m seeing? HOLY MOTHER OF MATHEMATICS. Of the many questions of inherited leadership that can be asked, a simple example would be looking for spontaneous copies or effective similarities, and then moving on to the next question of identifying effectiveness. And they likely have 5 questions after that.

          This is why Google has to identify anons, too. OMG – this is huge. Google + DNA is after an understanding of – whoa – seems a lot like – whoa – now I see why Q said – whoa.

        • Mexico never realized the benefits of NAFTA because China joined the WTO.

          In the original NAFTA agreement, Mexico was the ‘low-cost’ partner and multinationals were going to exploit the differences in labor costs to undermine US labor pricing.

          This was the multinational’s intent from the beginning.

          However, when China joined the WTO, China, not Mexico, became the ‘low wage leader’ for the world and Mexico’s chief value in NAFTA (low-wage labor) was completely nullified by China.

          AMLO knows this and it’s one of the reasons why he was willing to except stringent rules of origin for products entering the US. ‘Rules of origin’ is code for ‘preventing Chinese goods from entering the US’ under whatever agreement includes them.

          For some reason that I have not been able to identify, Mexico’s economy never became as dependent on brokering their NAFTA tariff-free status to integrate with China like Canada has.

          It’s not clear to me where ‘rules of origin’ stand in the US/Canada negotiations.

          Thus, I cannot tell whether Canada’s constantly shifting demands are a cover for avoiding ‘rules of origin’ provisions or just political grandstanding.

Being a resident in Mexico and a 50-year visitor, I suspect that Mexico’s extreme provinciality and extreme corruption combined to limit MXs vision for this…And perhaps, the Mexicans realized that the Chinese corruption would exceed even theirs and surpass them, causing them to surrender their hold on Mexican corruption and self-dealing. Mexico really lives with a 19th-century, semi-feudal vision of itself.

            • As I understand it, and please feel free to correct me, but the Mexican upper class are, essentially, Spaniards, not indigenous Mexicans. Thus there is not just an economic divide in Mexico but also a ‘racial’ divide. The physical differences between Pena and AMLO tell a story.

              I am not one to discount Mexican nationalism as a factor in their response to Chinese overture. The Mexicans have been invaded — and ruled — by Spaniards and Germans in their history.

              Mexican patriots are no more looking to be ‘ruled’ by the Chinese than they are the US.

              However one chooses to interpret AMLO, it’s clear he is a patriot and a tribune of the indigenous Mexican people.

              As for the corruption angle, I had considered that as a factor. The Chinese will ‘play ball’, but only long enough to cut out the corrupt national ‘middle men’.

              For a class that is used to continually making significant money from corruption, the Chinese are not a very good partner.

              However, the difference between Mexican and Canadian dependence on NAFTA tariff brokerage may simply have been that Canada offered a better arrangement overall than Mexico and so more Chinese goods flowed to Canada.

              There is this economic tenet called ‘the benefit of backwardness’. It’s counterintuitive, but its been well-attested. The idea is that the more backward a nation is technologically/economically, the more it has to gain from technological/economic development. There are fewer and smaller ‘sunk costs’ to overcome and the vested interests are more likely to accept the loss of whatever ‘sunk costs’ of their existing investments and simply adopt the latest and greatest.

              The result is, typically, a ‘great leap forward’.

              An example: Imagine that Mexico begins to accept US investment in their electrical infrastructure. Much of this infrastructure would be the ‘latest and greatest’ and would be better than a great deal of the existing US infrastructure.

    On October 1st, PDJT will have President Nieto and President Elect AMLO and the Mexican negotiation team at the White House to present the actual language that will be submitted that day to Congress. What else he does that day will destroy the POS from Canada 🇨🇦 and our Congress. He will sign the Executive Order beginning the six month clock on the DEATH 💀 of NAFTA.

    If Congress is stupid enough to challenge his authority, he will still control the hammer because NAFTA is still DEAD 💀 and life will return to what it was prior to NAFTA being ratified in 1994. We had big surpluses with Mexico 🇲🇽 and Canada 🇨🇦.

    PDJT never loses! This is the perfect WIN WIN SCENARIO.

            Far better than risk an Immigration Bill that bans Illegal Aliens from ever re-entering the USA or becoming American CItizens.

              They have decided to return to Mexico. She has gone down there bought properties to rent. She says within next three to five years they think they will be in position to move.
              So, yes maybe they will start self-deporting. (California)

AMLO has lots of work in front of him and he’s gonna have to rely of good allies to get make headway. He’s placed his right foot forward but has many many miles to travel to make a big dent in the problems in Mexico. It’s starts with the cartels and that’s a big problem both inside the government and outside the government. Those evil people are not gonna go quietly. I hope for the best for Mexicans but utimately their fate is in their hand just like the US and there’s so much outside interference and evil within that’s it gonna take a strong leader to overcome. Personally I think AMLO will prove to be Trump like or another Crooked Hillary and it want take too long to figure it out. Right now I’m optimistic that he’s put the right foot forward by allying with Trump. MMGA is my hope for the good people in Mexico.

              The Media/Left/Democrat/Progressives want to make everything about Trump the man and pretend that is how he operates.

              He doesn’t.

              At the top of the Trump agenda is stopping China.

              This is the background to just about everything Trump does.

              Fortunately, stopping China is good for the US economy and workers over the long haul.

              This is why ‘rules of origin’ are the ‘walkaway’ indicator for any trade deal.

      The irony of the situation is Canada could keep all of its auto workers, no problem. They would just have to source a lot more North American parts. The increase in that cost would take away their ability to tax the living stuffing out of their citizens & industries. Remember the original idea behind NAFTA was that Canada’s place was the motherload of natural resources. They didn’t have the untapped labor force (Mexico) or the gigantic consumer Market (US). You got to know where you fit into the deal. Boy, have they ever screwed that up.

In order for Canada to do that, they’d have to withdraw from the TPP (they just got in earlier this year), they’d also have to backtrack on decades worth on environmental, industrial and regulatory policy. Given the Canadian Government just bought a $4 billion oil pipeline they can’t build because of their own Leftist Judges, it’s not very likely unless Canada completely folds on everything and more.

      Good post Flep. Just to add a bit.

      The Mexican leadership has actually performed this deal being completely aware of the reality of their countries situation. And of which, Canada is refusing to face.

      Mexico is geographically joined to the most powerful country, economically, in the world.

      And now, has a leader who will ensure, by any means, that America will maintain and grow even larger in that regard.

      So Mexico made a deal with us. The deal is actually fair to both sides. Maybe Mexico wanted more, but understands that our President is a fair man.

      In that, future deals are possible and to be able to at least share in part, share in our future our economic success is in the cards.

      An example is the Mexican auto industry. These are “sunk” costs. The factories are already built and are more modern than many currently in America. A deal can be made to not punish the Mexican car industry, which was done in this regard.

      But it my belief, that a more. important part of the deal has been struck.

      Controlling the cartels, controlling illegal immigration, and recognizing the wall as the legal border between the countries.

      How much is it worth to us, if Mexico would do just those three things?

      It would be huge. And the cost savings, as well as the human suffering eliminated cannot be fixed with a price.

      With the current “legal” Hispanic American population being made up of mostly very loyal Hispanic Americans, making a deal that creates closer relations with their home country is a solid choice for now and in the future for both countries.

      Clearly speaking. Canada blew it.

      And now may end up exactly how Obama wanted America to end up.

      Controlled by Globalists and destroyed by it’s own politicians.

      We should all pray for the Canadian people.

      Jokes aside, I agree with softening stance but I guess the original impression of AMLO was based on his campaign rhetoric. On trade, at least, he seems to be eager to work with our President Trump and so far that is what in the front burner.

      But I think there is more than what meets the eye.

      I have not seen any mention from anybody but if I recall, President Trump went out of his way to mention in the call that it was HE who suggested to Mexico that the President and President-Elect should work together on trade and the reason we are here today is due to both, President and President-Elect of Mexico, working hand-in-hand with our team.

      I think this is very significant.

      Am I reading too much into this? I don’t know but knowing our President Trump, he never floats a nugget if it does not have any value, if not immediately then in near future. Maybe he was sending message to JT that you can get same sweet deal like Mexico if you will work with us? Unfortunately, JT did not grab the presented opportunity. SAD!

    All that’s real is both ‘systems’are contrived to put a small group of elitists in control of the masses. And, the small group, with incredible power, becomes corrupt.

    I traveled a lot in Mexico in my younger days. I always thought the people and the resources could make a very successful country. Mexico has always been ruled with an iron fist by a very small number of families. I’m very optimistic about the changes and Mexico’s future.

    Maybe Justine Trudeau is playing 99th dimension chess. Don’t laugh as it’s about the same likelihood as that being what Jeff Sessions is doing. No wait, go ahead and laugh.

    I know this probably belongs on the Open Thread, but Mexico is not exactly the crap hole many believe it to be. The Mexican people are very proud and the below video is an excellent example of this pride…Very, very, nice, no matter what language….take a listen..

    Carmina Burana, la Orquésta Sinfónica de Xalapa, a city on the Atlantic coast.

      There are three beautiful symphonic venues in Guadalajara with stellar visiting orchestras, ballet, and two music festivals here in the Chapala area that sport performers like Quartetto Gelato, Davig Fung, the Gryphon Quartet, and others. We sponsor young musicians with scholarships. Pretty nice.

    Trudeau is all-in on using Mr. Trump to get re-elected; the media will carry the water. NAFTA became his strongest hand with his “no deal is better than a bad deal” speech. In less than a year, we will know if that plan, obviously devised by Soros & Axelrod, worked.

    If this all turns out well, Wall Street and the globalists could have even bigger problems forging ahead with their world control agenda because they will not only have MAGA to contend with, they will have the combination of Mexico and the United States to deal with. I would think that that would increase pressure on them and lead them to make additional mistakes as they try to take down both the American middle class and the Mexicans as well. I hope we will be able to continue in this direction.

    Martin Armstrong posted this article in March entitled “Foreign Investment Into Canada has Collapsed by 26% in 2017”. It’s six months later and the PM and Princess have reeked more havoc. Can’t imagine what the stats are now. Canadians are reaping what they have sown (just like we did with zero).

    FTA: Foreign direct investment into Canada has absolutely plunged during 2017 to the lowest since 2010. There has been an effort to stop the sale of any property to foreign investors mainly from China. On top of that, there has been also a collapse in capital investment into the oil industry. There are fears also rising about an exodus of capital from the nation’s oil patch and worries about the fate of the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA).

    Direct investment into Canada declined by a stunning 26% dropping to merely $33.8 billion during 2017, according to Statistics Canada.

    I suspect Obama told Trudeau to hold out till after midterm before making a trade deal. Same with China just like Kerry did with Iran.

  27. One obstacle overlooked in this article is AMLO’s advocacy for MORE illegal immigration.

    That being said, I’ve long wondered if a portion of the burgeoning middle-Hispanic-class here in the U.S. would ever take their wealth, accumulated knowledge and diverse skill sets, and ARMS and return to their countries of origen to “put things right”.

    During Obozo’s reign, I heard about reports of farmers taking up arms (illegally) on the Yucatán to defend themselves against the rampant corruption….

    Tough love. It sows the seeds for character, work ethics, and compassion. Countries like Mexico need this. Trump is teaching them an invaluable lesson.

    I read that the avocado growers in Mexico got tired of paying cartel taxes so they armed themselves and kicked them out electing new police officers. A year later those officers were near as corrupt as the cartels. It is just like Animal Farm with Capitalism swapped for communism. Those in charge always get corrupted.

    Any deal with Mexico is gonna have a “get control of your illegal immigration problem clause”. There was a mention of the new cabinet minister refusing the $20M offered by Trump to turn back the Central Americans marching tbru MX to get to the US, saying that MX will not be the US’ “policemen”. https://mexiconewsdaily.com/news/new-government-wont-police-migrants/

    But neither will MX obey its signatory status to offer these people “asylum” as the 1st country of entry, or to deport them. As usual, MX wants to bloviate about its “world status”, and ignore its own law simultneously.

    We hold all the cards. They will capitulate eventually. If he tries to screw us, he loses 1) all foreign, 2) remittances cut in half with taxes, and 3) massive deportations back to his country.
