I'm no fan of economic protectionism either. Do you think that's where the opposition is? I would be surprised if that's true but like I said I really don't understand the objection.
Those are measures like that that I find really overbearing from the Trump administration. Sure, Canada signed a deal with 10 other countries this week including China to cover their asses in case the NAFTA trade talks fall through but there's gotta be a point where the Trump administration cannot expect ALL the other countries to do the compromising. It has to be a win-win for everyone involved and right now, my perception is that Trump wants a win for one country and one country only: the United States.
