Donald Trump has, sometimes bizarrely, insinuated that he would be one of the best Presidents to ever make a trade deal.
In a lot of ways, he’s correct. Not only has he helped the shape the remainder of the American economic world during his meteoric rise to the upper echelon of real estate, but he has just the right amount of bravado to navigate the tricky world of international diplomacy.
His latest deal, which has been a reworking of the antiquated NAFTA trade parameters has brought Mexico back into the fold of American politics in a positive way.
Now, it looks like Canada is raring to go as well.
“We recognize that there is a possibility of getting there by Friday, but it is only a possibility, because it will hinge on whether or not there is ultimately a good deal for Canada,” he said at a press conference in northern Ontario. “No NAFTA deal is better than a bad NAFTA deal.”
As we’ve outlined before, the ability to get Canada sighted up for a possible trade explosion would be ripe if the President would finally break with Jeff Sessions’ archaic beliefs on marijuana and hemp, allowing for the almighty US agricultural system to create and harvest product for the emerging, yet limited in climate, Canadian cannabis industry.
