Brexit Presents Unique Trade Opportunity for U.S. and U.K. Economic Alliance….

First rule in geopolitics, it’s always about the economics.  Second rule in geopolitics: refer to rule #1.    Understanding this basic truism is the key to understand how President Trump is able to be so effective.  There are trillions at stake, and infinite interests.

“Economic security is national security.” ~President Trump

All politics circles back to the underlying economics; whether it is an individual financial self-interest for a specific politician, or whether it is a larger financial interest for a group or even a nation.  Everything is always about the money, and that essential truth is why Donald Trump is so uniquely qualified, influential and stunningly effective. Today:

(VIA CBC) The United States would “enthusiastically” support a no-deal Brexit if that is what the British government decided to do, U.S. national security adviser John Bolton told reporters on Monday.

[…]  As the United Kingdom prepares to leave the European Union on Oct. 31, its biggest geopolitical shift since the Second World War, many diplomats expect London to become increasingly reliant on the United States.

“If that’s the decision of the British government we will support it enthusiastically, and that’s what I’m trying to convey. We’re with you, we’re with you,” said Bolton, in London for two days of talks with British officials. The U.S. administration is seeking an improved U.S.-British relationship with Prime Minister Boris Johnson after sometimes tense ties between Donald Trump and Johnson’s predecessor, Theresa May.

A central message Bolton was making is that the United States will help cushion Britain’s exit from the EU with a free trade agreement that is being negotiated by U.S. Trade Representative Robert Lighthizer and his British counterpart, Liz Truss.  (read more)

Also today from New Jersey:

(WH Link)

Notice how President Trump doesn’t rely on John Bolton to deliver his message. President Trump builds inherent checks into the process when others deliver his messages about economic deals, strategies and trade proposals.  Classic CEO Executive Trump.

It is not that President Trump doesn’t trust Bolton, but rather Trump understands a difference in political priority exists.  Donald Trump isn’t a politician, he’s working through a plan for what he views (we agree) is bigger than any ideological aspects.

The economics of all things is the priority for President Trump…. step into that lane, or bring forth a policy directive that crosses into that economic lane, and you step into an administration agenda item completely controlled and directed by Donald Trump.

Every policy engagement from the big to the small goes through the prism of economics first and last.  Essentially this is the foundation of the Trump doctrine.  Brexit, Huawei, Iran, the larger EU etc. all cross paths with President Trump’s primary focus, U.S. economic wealth, influence and security.

Donald Trump isn’t leaving anything to chance or misinterpretation…. He’s full bore economic Obsessive Compulsive!  …And unapologetic about it.

President Trump has single-handily, and purposefully, stalled the global economy and is forcing massive amounts of wealth back into the United States.  In essence Titan Trump is engaged in a process of: (a) repatriating wealth (trade policy); (b) blocking exfiltration (main street policy); (c) creating new and modern economic alliances based on reciprocity; and (d) dismantling the post WWII Marshall plan for global trade and one-way tariffs.

Every minute element within this process, no matter how seemingly small, has President Trump’s full attention.  He has assignments to many, but he relies upon none.

(Reuters) – The United States overtook Germany as the biggest supplier of imports into Britain for the first time since the early 2000s in the last financial year, the UK government said on Friday.

British trade minister Liz Truss has said the United States tops her priority list for post-Brexit trade deals and has been in Washington this week, along with Foreign Secretary Dominic Raab, to promote UK-US ties.

Imports from the United States increased by 14% to 78.27 billion pounds ($94.43 billion) in the year to April, the Department for Trade said, while imports from Germany fell by 0.1% to 78.26 billion pounds.

While Germany has long been Britain’s biggest source of imports, the United States was already Britain’s largest export market, with exports reaching a record high of 121.6 billion pounds in the last financial year.

“Now that the U.S. is our largest market for both exports and imports, there has never been a better time for us to make the most of this golden opportunity and deliver a free trade agreement with the US,” Truss said in a statement.  (more)

        GGHD: I think I can sum up your first paragraph: EU is getting a taste of its own medicine. (How does it feel?) With one exception, however: Trump may rub their nose in their own mess, but he has NO plans to leave anybody high and dry (like they did to us these past few decades.)

        That is, not unless they choose to suffer needlessly, like our clueless neighbors to the north.

        President Trump can easily handle, and actually quite prefers win-win scenarios. We’re not the pigs at the trough here. This win-win does however, necessitate that EU and multinational corporations “amend their business plans.” Oh noes!

        We who live in the real world will by necessity adjust our sails from time to time. EU needs to get with the program, and President Trump, leverage wunderkind, has “six ways from Sunday” to steer them in the right direction.

        Their sky-is-falling, New World Order Totalitarianism crap just ain’t gonna fly. Globalists need to just get over themselves already!

        To those immediately above, being former USARMY the following ordinarily would be blasphemous, what we need to do is cut back on land based commitments and shrink our ground forces substantially but responsibly and revamp our naval forces massively. The Navy has been shifted to supporting land based forces in the GWOT and neglected(taken for granted)superiority at sea on the high seas. The Chinese are far better prepared for the up coming conflict at sea with China.

        Note also, if China has move mainland forces to subdue Hong Kong it will also push up their timetable on Taiwan as their Panda mask towards it will become inoperable.

    Consider that Brexit has been in the works since the positive vote on June 23, 2016…. Isn’t it interesting that Candidate Trump had been vocally in favor of Brexit as far back as May 5th, 2016,

    https://www.theguardian.com/us-news/2016/may/05/donald-trump-brexit-uk-leaving-european-union

    Isn’t it also interesting that May 2016 resonates strongly as the start of the entrapment of Candidate Trump’s foreign policy expert Popadopoulis by British agencies. The British side of “the Big Ugly” framing Trump/Russia Collusion could be seen as revenge by pro-EU / anti-Brexit factions.

    We also need to consider, in the unlikely event that Trump were to win the election in Nov 2016, that discovery of the British involvement in the coup (as it is in 2019) would so sour diplomacy that the US/British trade policy would be irrevocably damaged? Was Collusion 2017 all just a way to scorched earth future Trump/British relations?

      Yes. It WASN’T British, Italian, and New Zealand/Aussie Countries against DJT.

      It was ELEMENTS in thos governments, golbalist/conmunist elements actually aligned with CCP, that were opposdd to and working against DJT as candidate and now POTUS.

      And BREXIT is not just about Britain. Yes, its supporting our fellow deplorables across the pond. This IS a Worldwide movement, and battle.

      But, as EU economy continues to wither, a vibrant bounce back of GB economy, fueled by getting out from under the crushing EU regulations, AND great trade deal with U.S. will make for an unbelievably stark compare/contrast.

      In short, Katie bar the door, as Hungary, Poland, Italy (after elections)
      Perhaps netherlands insist on leaving the EU.

      EU is Conmunism lite; over regulation, high taxation, unelected buerocrats with no accountability, centralised government, “generous” social programs paid for with other peoples (our) money, WHAT else COULD you call it?

      Every bit as bad as CCP in China.
      Kill it, same was as CCP. Deprive it of other peoples money.

      And GOOD riddance, and welcome to any countries that move to strong Nationalist, free market governments.
      Welcome as healthy COMPETITORS, neither ‘allies’ nor ‘enemies’in the traditional sense.
      Entanglements with NONE!

    Most of the people around the world want freedom and capitalism not socialism or communism. Part of the big problem was Obama met with May, Merkel,Trudeau,and Macron and convinced them to stay HIS course even after Trump was elected. I think they are all regretting that decision. Obama played them for the fools they are. They will all be gone soon.

      I see it differently. They are ALL “Globalists”, and signed up in blood, on the team with CCP as their sponsor.

      Obama MAY have been the quarterback, calling the plays, but they were and remain fully on board.

      Their only regret MAY be realising they are on the loosing team. However, when your down 20 points in the last 5 minutes, you don’t concede and walk off the field, you keep playing till the final whistle.

      Thats what they are doing now. They know PDJT is destroying their plans, and there is little they can do, but they continue. They are dead men/women walking and I suspect most know it.

    Observations from a smaller limb.

    A look at some economic numbers for the U.K.
    Released last Friday:

    Preliminary GDP Q/Q : -0.2%
    Manufacturing Production M/M :- 0.2%
    Construction Output M/M ; -0.7%
    Goods Trade Balance : -7.0B
    Index of Services : 3M/3M: 0.1%
    Industrial Production M/M -0.5%
    Business Investment: -0.5%

    Yeah, I think they are ready to have honest talks, May screwed up by putting it off and fighting Brexit. I wonder if the negotiations will include a few heads. Time is right and this should move quickly for both, this is a potential real win/win

    Once in place, whatever adjustments circumstances may require in detail, Pres. Trump’s Jeffersonian-Henry Clay theme of American security through hard-won self-sufficiency is for the ages.

    Trump is a real POTUS. A sharp contrast from his immediate predecessors (and increasingly so). Obama was the archetype of a Figurehead/Pitchman. This is why I usually just refer to POTUS Trump as just the POTUS.

    It’s quite a powerful thing to have legitimacy in our Constitutional Republic in the form of the Executive.

    (By the way, I’ve only once heard the POTUS refer to himself as “as real POTUS,” which is probably best.)

    The power of any president, really any leader of a sovereign, is a function of his power vis-à-vis domestic and foreign centers of power. DJT is the most powerful person on the planet of a different order from that which might come from being POTUS.

    Per Nietzsche, The Resistance that didn’t destroy him has made him stronger.

    Trump, a man of superlatives, means to be the greatest POTUS ever. It really is that simple.

      At the moment we have POTUS and maybe 70 million votes. The problem is that while he is a towering figure of a man, his is only one man, nevertheless. Too much rests upon him alone for the future of the country. We need strong proTrump allies in greater numbers in the legislative branch to give depth and breadth to the MAGA movement. Right now if feels like a one man battle of POTUS against the world. I’m not discounting the amazing support he has from The People. I’m only saying that his legacy is too dependent upon him and that is dangerous. Who are his political allies? Who would likely replace him in 2024? When will the Never Trump traitors exit? And when will justice be served?

    I appreciate much of what England and Scotland and Wales and Ireland bequeathed us…

    Much of the industrial and technology development of England over the past two hundred or so years, continued to develop here as well.

    Global navigation (Prime Meridian), Steam power (Watts), railroads (Great Western Railroad), I.K. Brunels civil engineering (parabolic brick bridges), Fleet Street (newspapers), telegragh, (?), electricity (Faraday), jet engine (Whipple), RADAR (Johnson – no not really just a bad joke), the Pilgrims, the Episcopal Church, chips (not the thin crunchy kind), Strategic Air Power (RAF), much of our legal foundation…

    Shared blessings aplenty.

    As much as I respect the role Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II plays for the U.K. and nations around the world, one of the best lesson we learned was to leave behind the entire notion of inherited and ruling royalty.

    To a greater or lesser degree in reality.
