President Trump Congratulates Boris Johnson on Great Win: “Now be free to strike a massive new Trade Deal after BREXIT”…

Last night President Trump congratulated Prime Minister Boris Johnson on his great win in the U.K. election, noting the possibilities for a big trade boost are “massive”:

Not accidentally, the geopolitical economic and trade planets have aligned splendidly.   The cornerstone USMCA agreement has bipartisan support and will ratify quickly in congress.  A “phase one” trade agreement with China is likely, and prior plans for a strategic trade deal with the U.K. have increased as a result of the U.K. election.

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 many 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.

Donald J Trump isn’t a politician at heart, he’s a businessman.  From that outlook he appears to be working through a plan for what he views (we agree) is bigger than politics.

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, China, North Korea the larger EU etc. all geopolitical issues cross paths with President Trump’s primary focus, U.S. economic wealth, influence and security.

President Trump doesn’t leave economic policy to chance. He’s full bore economic obsessive compulsive! …And unapologetic about it. President Trump has single-handily begun resetting the global economy and is bringing  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 (tariffs); and (d) dismantling the post WWII Marshal plan of industrial trade and one-way tariffs.

Every element within this process, no matter how small, has President Trump’s full attention. He has assignments to many, but he relies upon none.  In prior review of President Trump’s discussions with Boris Johnson there was a clear outline of a possibility.

In the details of a Brexit trade agreement with the EU it appears the EU can, likely would, punish the UK for having more favorable trade agreements with other nations.  Meaning if the UK gives better deals to others than it does the EU, the EU will increase tariffs against the UK and use non-trade barriers to restrict access to the EU market for UK products.

But that’s the limit of what the EU will be able to do….

Meaning, the EU cannot stop the UK from entering a trade deal with North America (think USMCA); and there’s a very visible likelihood President Trump is constructing a U.S-U.K trade agreement with that in mind.

Meaning the U.K. could have preferential access to North America; and USMCA countries (Mexico, U.S. and Canada) will in turn have preferential trade treatment with the U.K.

This is important.  The EU will not be able to influence the U.S-U.K. trade agreement beyond imposing tariffs and restrictions on Britain as punishment.  This is where the importance of Donald Trump comes in.

Trump can, I would say: likely will, give preferential treatment to exports from the U.K., so long as PM Boris Johnson is reciprocal toward the U.S.

Simultaneously, President Trump can hit the EU much harder than the EU can hit Great Britain.  If, say, the EU hits the UK with a 25% tariff as punishment for a better trade deal with the U.S. on any individual segment, Trump can hit the EU with a 25% tariff back on the EU.

The EU needs access to the $20 Trillion U.S. market much more than the EU needs access to the newly freed U.K. market.  It takes building a level of trust, but President Trump and PM Johnson can work together to leverage this trade situation to both of their benefits.

The EU will want to keep selling their stuff into the U.K. (less important); but the EU *has to* keep selling their stuff into the U.S. (very important) in order to survive.

Trump and Johnson can work on a U.S-U.K. trade superhighway.   Our research already sees this construct in the discussions.  Simultaneously, Trump can pummel the EU with tariffs.

[Keep in mind the U.S. won a WTO ruling for $7.5 billion a year in countervailing duties the EU cannot legally try and counteract (Boeing case); and USTR Lighthizer has calculated a $2.4 billion countervailing duty against France for their internet tax scheme]

Combine the $7.5 billion WTO ruling against the EU (writ large), with the $2.4 billion duty against France, and overlay the potential for President Trump to hammer additional duties against the EU for adverse trade action within the Brexit customs authority, and what we see is an EU that can threaten action, but has limited recourse (just like China).

As inferred recently by Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross, President Trump is not adverse to triggering more tariffs against the EU.  Arguably he is looking for any economic excuse to do so.  Brexit provides just that excuse.

Once the U.K exits the European Union, President Trump can provide trade incentives for EU products that come from the U.K. – that do not come from the EU itself.   No U.S. tariffs on Great Britain, while Trump, Ross and Lighthizer put heavy tariffs on the EU.

The result of this process would push EU manufacturers and suppliers into the U.K. as a trade hub for access to North America, specifically the United States.  EU companies wanting to avoid the U.S. tariffs against the EU could distribute their products through operations within the U.K.

As described this trade network provides PM Boris Johnson with the ability to pick and choose the EU entities that he would permit to operate in the U.K.  In essence, this provides Prime Minister Boris Johnson with leverage against the EU for “other issues” of importance.

It’s all about the economics.

Without money to finance a big government ideology, everything stops.

All of the above stated, this is another reason why Nancy Pelosi and the ideological leftists were trying to stall the USMCA. The North American Trade agreement is the trade fulcrum for a massive global economic reset that impacts Asia and Europe.

The corporate multinational profit schemes that exploit China/Asia, and the political ideology behind the socialists/leftists that align with the EU (ie. “share the wealth”), are both weakened by a North American trade alliance, USMCA, that establishes the best return on international investment in North America.

At the center of this realignment is “America First“. A reestablished economic leverage that can reward allies and punish adversaries.  Globalism becomes a thing of the past and is replaced by economic nationalism; an international tide to lift all boats – peacefully.

“Economic security is national security”…

        The MSM only hopes that it takes years…that would allow them time to try to destroy every conservative and conservative movement that pops up. They are losing control. The Tea Party was the first phase, followed by Trump and Brexit. They believed them to be anomalies that could be squashed and erased, but Trump and Brexit are the new movement that have taken the globalist interests of the MSM and the Deep State and turned them on their heads. These are the headwinds of what’s to come.

        How will the media/deep state/globalists respond? Trump has survived their full blast or every tool they had for 3 years. When it becomes clear that he’s going to win again, I believe that the assassination attempts begin. There’s too much at stake for these people to lose.

        It’s VERY IMPORTANT that Bill Barr clean out the DOJ and intelligence services of “The Resistance”, because the President is vulnerable to these traitors like Vindman.

        This conniving and chicanery has to end.

      Very well done. Finally, the Brits are waking up to the loss of their country and decided to do something to change it. London has become another San Fran, overrun with homeless, radical Islamists, refugees all upheld as the new norm for a bright future by their mayor.

      The first photo in this article, the table full of people, is telling. Only two are smiling. Two men that love their countries. Two men that don’t intend to bend or break to political pressure. Two men that have vision, that cast aside correctness and the idea of “it’s always been done this way”. Two men that are wild cards, normal guys, hard working badasses. Two men that make the metro sexual, U.N. bowing girlie men cringe. Two men that are not afraid of man-eaters like Merkel, Clinton or May.

      This will be fun. Great trade deals, prosperity and national security for both nations, entertainment on both sides of the Pond as we watch these two leaders dismantle a whole lot of BS. Churchill smiles down. The rest of us cheer.

      However, no doubt Little Never King Prince Harry and his perpetually offended trophy wife Megan Sparkles Markles may finally go ahead and move to their dream paradise — a 3rd world African nation. Poor Harry and Megs–now they have another Orange Man to fret about.

      If that sounds like what we Deplorables have endured since electing President Trump, that’s because it is. The landslide election of PM Boris Johnson is the backlash of a people not only fed up with Globalism, but fed up with their own *shadow* government thwarting the will of the people.

      Many of us have seen so many politicians come and go, without ever having delivered on their campaign promises. The overwhelming majority of them meet that description.

      Candidate Trump seemed full of bluster at first in 2015, but something was different. He sounded like he had been listening to middle America a lot more closely than any other politician in memory.

      Still, I relied on the old adage, “if it’s too good to be true, it usually is”, and voted for Cruz in the state primary. Within weeks however I knew Trump was the eventual winner and supported him from then on, hoping he was sincere. It was a good bet.

      Seeing is believing. There are some – even many – who have yet to be personally lifted by the rising economy. But too many to ignore *have* been lifted, so those who are thinking this is just a temporary, illusory, synthetic economy are wrong and missing the huge opportunities right in front of them.

    So with Boris’ soft Brexit (as currently proposed), how will it affect immigration and refugee resettlement? Isn’t the Lisbon Treaty going to be unaffected by the soft Brexit, thus allowing the continuation of mass immigration there? It might be all well and good in the short-term economic front, but demographic replacement may continue unabated. A Muslim majority in 20 years or so dooms the economic gains in the meantime. And Boris has shown himself in the past to be a mass immigration-loving globalist. Hopefully he is paying close attention to recent polls that natives are getting weary of open borders, but will the tiger finally change its stripes?

    This tweet is Trump at his best. He congratulates, but does much more. He lays out expectations and rewards.

    Do Brexit, get great rewards.

    What isn’t said is do some half assed deal and you don’t get the lucrative trade agreement. What also is conveyed is a sense of urgency. Trump’s dangled the carrot – massive new trade deal, when Brexit is done.

    These are the tweets I love of Trump’s.

Just remember that the economic wing of the GOP and the heartland blue collar ex-Democrats did not give us Trump on their own. They were and are an essential part of the team; we couldn’t have done it without them. But the faith, family and freedom wing of the GOP tput Trump over the top with 90% support from their ranks. As always, economic prosperity comes after the triumph of the moral and spiritual good, not the other way around.

    I noted yesterday’s news about a possible trade deal with the slave-state of China, if there are “written contracts” involved.

    I have read all sorts of articles in the past few years about the Chinese ignoring contracts, breaking contracts, cheating American companies trying to do business with them, and of course outright theft.

    Why is it that I have no such fears about American companies doing business with England/United Kingdom?

    Is it because we share a common Judaeo-Christian heritage via Western Civilization and do not believe that a murderous, atheistic, totalitarian slave-state of Communism is a proper governmental style?

    If there is a deal with China, I do not expect it to last. I would prefer instead a world-wide embargo on the entire place to force the Chinese Communists to collapse.

    Helping out the UK and their “conservatives” is nice, but it’s not clear to me what’s in it for us?
    We get cheaper imports on Land Rovers and marmalade?
    If the EU does impose increased tariffs on the UK, we retaliate, and it hurts the EU who we are going to punish anyway.
    If the EU does not impose increased tariffs on the UK they have a low tariff backdoor into the US via UK. This seems good for UK but bad for us?

    How does either of these scenarios help us? Trumponomics usually puts us in a heads we win tails you lose situation, but this doesn’t seem like one. What am I missing.

      The US does have a large trade surplus with the UK and a large trade deficit with the EU

      Overall, the U.S. enjoyed a Net SURPLUS of $15.9 billion of trade in goods and services in 2017 with the UK.
      The U.S. exported $125.9 billion of goods and services to the UK, making it the UK’s 2nd largest source of imports.
      The U.S. imported $110 billion in goods and services from the UK; the U.S. is by far the UK’s largest export market.

      And there’s this from SD analysis:

      Globalism becomes a thing of the past and is replaced by economic nationalism; an international tide to lift all boats – peacefully.

      “Economic security is national security”…

      So I guess we’re supposed to get from this that trade relationships with other countries can be based on simply needing/wanting something the other country has, but can also be based on how those trade relationships create a specific type of world economic system that we view as preferable.

      Who knows if it will work out. This isn’t the first bite of the apple. In ten years time we will be re-inventing this plan just like we’re now re-inventing Nafta. For now, I’m glad that China and the EU are being rocked back on their heels a bit.

    “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.”

    Yes, however, this must be qualified. It really is Geopolitics that reigns supreme. National economics perhaps for our abridged purposes here should be thought of as a synecdoche — wherein the lesser includes the whole and, conceptually key, the whole include the lesser.

    Eventually, I have no doubt that Trump will be viewed as having begun American renewal by reinvigorating American sovereignty. What should have remained functional became a mechanism to hijack the national interest, and the interests of the American people, with an ever less credible post-hoc rationale.

    Mexico is a baldly obvious example of both the multifaceted geopolitical interests at stake for the United States, along with Trump jaw-dropping success as a real POTUS. Suffice it for our purposes here to note that his conception of the trade relationship with Mexico, as soon to be codified in USMCA, is aligned with — rather than in tension against — with the entirety of the bilateral relationship of our immediate neighbor to the South.

    Trump frequently mentions in many contexts — really in reference to his role as the America First President — it’s just common sense.

    What better counter-example is there — meaning a POTUS violating common sense, than Obama declaring that the U.K. would “go to the back of the queue,” right before the Brexit vote?

    POTUS Trump also says often that he doesn’t blame China/Xi, or any of our other trading partners, for one-way trade with the U.S. He blames previous presidents. I assume I’m not the only one who has figured out that he is also speaking about and to multinational corporations, including most especially those that playfully call themselves American companies.

    When I was young, I too thought that “Free Trade” was cute. I accepted on faith that Comparative Advantage thingie. No more, and I’m rather obviously not alone. . . . “It’s just common sense.”

    Contra the conventional wisdom, the U.K. has enormous leverage in negotiating a new trade agreement with the EU. Because it’s a large market, and particularly for German autos. Germany does not want, cannot afford, to have that disrupted or severed.

    As for a new US-UK trade agreement — and setting aside for the moment any specifics, Trump will be supportive of the UK’s pursuit of its national interest, but not to an extent that it encroaches on our own vis-a-vis the EU (Germany).

    This brings me happiness. And Trump’s trolling is an art form. He knows how much hate this will bring from the globalists. He doesn’t care! Trump is here for one reason only: To undo all of the damage he sees and set things right.

    We’ve had many many presidents in the United States and sadly too few truly understand the jeopardy this country is actually in. Many of us here do understand this quite well though possibly from many different points of view and many different points of focus as well. I see this country as being in a cultural crisis due to cultural Marxism which is as the root of the destruction of the family, the church and the culture at large. From this focus, all other aspects become infected with Marxism. I think Trump sees this. This is why a “not particularly/not visibly” religious man cares so much about the religious concerns within our country.

    Trump is the best president this country has ever seen. Better than all other examples of great presidents, because while Lincoln managed to keep the union of the states together, he did so with a great deal of compromise both legal and moral. Trump is not, in any meaningful way, compromising and he’s intending to do it all legally and peacefully. And if things turn really bad, I have no doubt he will do what’s necessary, but his plan is almost purely the destruction of the enemy by economic means alone. That’s not a thing Lincoln was either clever enough or in a position to do. But to his credit, Lincoln did something Trump has yet to entertain — debt free currency.

    Excellent, excellent, excellent Sundance. I thoroughly enjoy your geo-economic analysis! Trump had to tear the global system down in order to build it back up with the US firmly at the center. What we had in the previous globalist regime, was the US being drained while the rival powers of the EU and China were being puffed up. This ends with Trump. The USMCA is the centerpiece agreement that will reverse this situation and cause the US to grow stronger in a reciprocal trade environment while rival economic powers, the EU and China, now must stand on their own. True alliance partners will be allowed to plug into USMCA, such as UK, Japan, S. Korea and Australia. Rival powers, like EU and China will be brought to heel with tariffs. The WTO will be ended and Trump has already initiated that process, causing rival powers in the EU and China to scramble!

    After Trump puts the finishing touches on US-UK, US-Japan (Phase 2), and KORUS (military aid negotiations), he would have established a trade network that will be the gold standard, while at the same time ending the exploitation of the US by China and the EU. With the USMCA at the center, this US centric trading alliance will then be on the table for the developing nations to consider as an alternative to EU and China’s rival networks. Brazil, India and ASEAN nations will have to make a decision on whether they want to be in our network on a reciprocal basis or outside and face similar tariff treatment as the EU and China.

    The international order is changing. Trump has realigned the pieces on the chess board to best position the US in the great power rivalries of this century against the EU and China. What will be interesting to watch is how nations like India, Saudi Arabia, Iran, Russia, Brazil, and ASEAN nations adjust to the order. We will see some surprising decisions going forward and believe it or not, I suspect something is brewing with Russia (just a feeling based on Lavrov’s statements in his latest US visit). What a coup that would be! MAGA!!

    48 Scottish National (+13) (seven below initial exit poll) (3.9%, up 0.8%)

    Conservative got over 3.6 million more votes than Labour.

    Not quite as bad a wipeout as originally predicted for Labour, who retained a number of seats SNP was expected to get, but still a strong indication of how unpopular Corbyn was. The leaders of the Liberal Democrats (Jo Swinson) and Dublin Unionists (Nigel Dodd) both lost, Dodd by virtue of collusion between the Irish Social Democrats (who stood down in that race0 and Sinn Fein.
