When Donald Trump became our nation’s president-elect on Tuesday, threats from liberals to move to Canada were abundant. So abundant, in fact, that the Canadian citizenship site crashed.
Now, these liberals are probably rethinking their strategy—it seems that the country isn’t ready to join their anti-Trump crusade.
In fact, Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau has announced that he will be willing to work with the newly elected president when it comes to trade.
On Thursday, Trudeau announced he was willing to “renegotiate the North American Free Trade Agreement”—which Trump has named the “worst trade deal” the United States has ever signed.
“I think it’s important that we be open to talking about trade deals,” Trudeau, who has been a firm defender of free trade, told reporters. This is an interesting turn, given that Trump has been leaning more toward protectionist measures.
One thing is certain: the support of Canada certainly won’t hurt. The two nations’ economies are inextricably intertwined.
“If the Americans want to talk about NAFTA, I’m more than happy to talk about it,” Trudeau confirmed.
The night before these statements were made, Trudeau called Trump to congratulate him on his victory.
Trump is already making progress, and he’s not even in the White House. Do you agree?
