I will judge Trump by how well he does on this . . . and not Russia.

So far, +1 for getting America to a point Obama and Hilary would not have even wanted to get.

Based on what we have seen thus far, we will rejoin but on worse terms as a whole and on great terms for a selected few industries.

The US under Trump is verging on being weaker internationally than it has been at almost any point since WWII. Vietnam, Iraq, Trump -- among downbeats, those are the Big Three. At this point, neither Canada nor Mexico has any reason to yield to Trump on any point at all that those two countries actually care about. They have every reason instead to do something quick and cosmetic while declaring that the issue has gone away again. All that many in the US actually care about of course is the silly bilge about NAFTA that has been produced for years by the disinformation media. They'll be nothing but disappointed here.

Who's going to renegotiate?

Canada and Mexico can just tell Trump to go pound sand.

NAFTA isn't going anywhere or changing. It's not even something worth worry about anyhow.

Careful... your politics are showing in the economics forum.

That shoe would be on the other foot. There may be politics behind the fact of the deteriorating US international position, but there are none involved in pointing out the facts of the matter. Nor is it news that certain elements have been pumping out blather and nonsense about NAFTA since before it was even signed. And it remains true that neither Canada nor Mexico has much actual motivation or interest in major revisions to the agreement at the present time.

The never-Trump crowd are still wetting their beds, opposing everything he does to improve the economy simply because he isn't Hillary.

He hasn't done anything to improve the economy. And you'll need to come up with some better excuses than that. Rejected in Asia. Cold shoulder from Europe. A nobody in the Middle East. The man has little influence over his own Congress, much less the nations of a complex world that he simply doesn't understand.

And it seems that Trumpetts are too busy patting him on the back without thinking about the consequences of his actions.

Ironically enough Mexico has more to gain from scrapping the agreement than the U.S. does.
