Trump Victory: World Leaders Back Down

(Before It's News)

http://google.com/safebrowsing/diagnostic?tpl=safari&site=theblacksphere.net&hl=en-us Only a mere 48 hours after the historic electoral win, world leaders who were “concerned” about a Trump presidency now prepare to “kiss the ring.”

It’s funny to watch world leaders back down from their pre-election rhetoric. Country by country, world leaders have come to the realization that Donald Trump will not be toyed with.

THEY WILL LIKE US WHEN WE WIN!”—Tobey Ziegler (Richard Schiff) The West Wing (episode Night Five 2002).

Canadian Prime Minister Gary Trudeau toppled the first domino as he indicated he would be willing to renegotiate NAFTA with President-Elect Trump.

“I think it’s important that we be open to talking about trade deals,” Trudeau — a fierce defender of free trade, which helps bolster the Canadian economy — told reporters.

“If the Americans want to talk about NAFTA, I’m more than happy to talk about it,” he said, adding that it was important to periodically reassess trade deals to ensure that they continue to be of benefit to Canadians.

Thirty-four US states rely on trade with Canada, which supports nine million American jobs, while exports to the United States represents 20 percent of Canada’s GDP.

The U.S. consistently runs a trade deficit with Canada, ranging from $20 billion to as much as $36 billion. How would the Canadian economy look if America disappeared?

Then there is Mexico; our neighbors to the South.

After much posturing about the relationship with the U.S. and more specifically Donald Trump, they are changing their tune. Apparently Tito Toughass is now ready to rethink things.

Mexico’s Foreign Minister Claudia Ruiz Massieu told CNN that Mexico is willing to “modernize” NAFTA:

“We are willing to talk about this with the new government and with Canada as well,” Ruiz Massieu told CNN late Wednesday.

“We think it is an opportunity to think if we should modernize it, not renegotiate it, but to modernize it,” Ruiz Massieu said.

Ruiz Massieu said Mexico “believes in free trade” and the governments “have the challenge to make sure that the opportunities created by NAFTA are more inclusive and that more people in the three countries feel the benefit of this integration agreement.”

Modernize? That’s the new definition of renegotiate.

CNS News reported a week ago that the US ran a $5.2 billion trade deficit with Mexico for September 2016.  Worse, the United States has been running a monthly trade deficit with Mexico every month for that last 22 years!

As the old saying goes, “With friends like these, who needs enemies!” Speaking of “friends,” what about those exporters of terror, the Saudis?!

After doing everything they could to get crooked Hillary Clinton elected, imagine their surprise around 1:30am ET, when they discovered Donald Trump was the president-elect?

In December 2015 the BBC reported Saudi Prince Alwaleed bin Talal slammed Donald Trump for proposing a ban on Muslim immigrants in the US until the government could alleviate security concerns. The Saudi Prince tweeted that Donald Trump was “disgrace” for his plan.

Donald Trump later asked Saudi Arabia in a tweet, [pp] “How many refugees is Saudi Arabia taking…NONE!”

More to the point, Prince Alwaleed_Talal quickly backed off, after his prediction of a Trump loss fizzled.

And what about Europe?

Advisors to German Chancellor Angela Merkel are warning her that the rising populist movement is growing problem for Europe mainstream politicians after the Brexit and Trump victories. As Reuters reports:

EU Commissioner Guenther Oettinger, also a senior conservative, said the U.S. election was a warning for Germany.

“Things are getting simplified, black or white, good or bad, right or wrong. You can ask simple questions, but one should not give simple answers,” Oettinger told Deutschlandfunk radio.

  • Oddly enough, I’ve never seen the Don wearing a wedding ring so I’m going to go back and read that paragraph again, in a slightly more dirty frame of mind. :cool:

  • And the erection of a costly mehikan wall?

    Meh….

    Just drop a pack of 300 chihuahuas with nasty drug habits down by the border and see how chewed, terrorised and pregnant the drug mules are by the end of the day. :roll:
