Trump Administration Slips Big Pharma Protections Into ‘New NAFTA’ Deal

Published

on

President Trump’s America First agenda is being cited as the reason for Democrat hold-up on passing the “New NAFTA” deal, which was largely orchestrated by White House adviser Jared Kushner. But it’s the Trump administration blocking America First reform.

McClatchy has an interesting new report on “NAFTA 2.0,” which is not necessary if the United States just fully withdraws from the original NAFTA, which has drained the life out of the U.S. economy in collaboration with US-China trade deals.

McClatchy reports:

House Democrats are pushing legislation to lower prescription drug costs, which they vowed to do during the 2018 elections, by shortening the length of time the government protects some types of brand-name pharmaceuticals from competition.

But Trump’s proposal to update the North American Free Trade Agreement, called the United States Mexico Canada Agreement, includes language that would derail those plans by setting the length of protections for the same drugs in the trade agreement. Congress would not be able to change those limits without violating the rules of the trade deal.

“Here you have a trade agreement that border members of Congress want to be able to eventually support,” said Lori Wallach, the director of the left-leaning Public Citizen’s Global Trade Watch program. “Yet the administration basically inserted into that trade agreement, a variety of new protections for big pharma that would effectively tie Congress’ hands from being able to do the medicine price-lowering reforms that many members now newly in office were elected on the basis of.'”

Why is a new NAFTA being written at all when the new Mexican government fails spectacularly at helping us secure our southern border, even compared to the previous Mexican administration?

When Trump gets one-on-one with world leaders and his top economic point men like Larry Kudlow, he has better luck.

President Donald Trump has reportedly made progress in his dealing with the Chinese regime, though a comprehensive deal has not been finalized. The two sides have yet to reach an agreement on Chinese intellectual property theft, which robs the American economy of our innovation.

Trump and Chinese president Xi are in intense talks, which could be occupying Trump’s focus while Kushner and the pharmaceutical lobby mess up NAFTA.

Sources confirm to CNBC that China agrees to purchase “up to $1.2 trillion” in additional U.S. goods, which should fulfill Trump’s goal of eliminating the trade deficit with China over a six-year period.

President Trump is also pushing to get 5G technology in the United States from American companies, instead of from Chinese companies whose technology could lead to more spying on Americans.

BLP reported: China’s economic growth in the year 2018 clocked in at 6.6 percent, which is the worst figure that China has posted since 1990.

China was added to the World Trade Organization in 2001, and for years has gotten the better end of a massive trade disparity with the United States. President Donald Trump is committed to erasing the U.S. trade deficit with China by the year 2024.

In that spirit, China just offered to purchase more than $1 trillion in additional American goods over the next six years.

President Trump’s high-stakes gamesmanship with the Chinese government is clearly paying off.

President Trump is prepared to meet North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un again at a second summit in late February. Trump’s masterful cooling of tensions with North Korea, helped mightily by his trusted Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, represents a new chapter in world peace, and also a profound new development in US-Chinese relations.

Will the free-trade media acknowledge the massive success that Trump’s tariffs and tariff threats — part of his so-called “trade war” — is actually bringing about for the American people?

When it comes to China, President Trump’s economic adviser Larry Kudlow is one tough cop:

The Left Wing Media is Leading a War on Conservatives & Hope To Destroy You

Published

At the New Republic, staff write Osita Nwanevu called for the destruction of the GOP.

Nwanevu cited the cases of Donald Trump and Roy Moore as why the GOP should go the way the of the Dodo.

The writer took issue with the Republican National Committee’s decision to continue supporting Moore amid allegations of child molestation. He also criticized the Trump administration for its caging of children at the border.

What bothers Nwanevu the most is how the Republican Party has backed Trump all of this time.

He even tried to link Trump to the previous failed administration George W. Bush.

Nwanevu attempted to draw the comparison below:

Trump’s own rhetoric of division and exclusion was preceded by the 2004 reelection campaign for George W. Bush, which took advantage of homophobia to boost turnout from social conservatives. Before thousands of Puerto Ricans devastated by Hurricane Maria were forced by the Trump administration’s shoddy recovery effort to ask themselves whether they were really Americans after all, thousands of African Americans failed by the Bush administration’s relief efforts after Hurricane Katrina posed the same question to themselves. Trump’s intimations that the federal executive is above the law may well have been bolstered by the Bush administration’s warrantless surveillance of the American people. Even Trump’s efforts to integrate his companies within the processes of the state were preceded by the Bush administration’s curious keenness for contracts with Halliburton, the company Vice President Dick Cheney ran before Bush took office.

The writer also criticized Trump for sowing divisions based on racial lines.

In Nwanevu’s view, “Donald Trump is not a departure from the values defining the Republican Party, but the culmination of its efforts to secure power in this country.”

He took it a step further by describing the Republican party as “a reliable opponent of equality and a malignant force in American life—a cancer within a patient in denial about the nature and severity of her condition” that must ultimately be “destroyed—vanquished from the American political scene with a finality that can only be assured not by electoral politics or structural reforms alone, but by a moral crusade.”

The staff writer gushed about demographics, largely propelled by post-1965 Immigration Act policies, as a main driver of the inevitable political change in America.

The Left is no longer hiding their intentions when it comes to mass migration.

They understood full well its political implications, which is why they constantly brag about the GOP’s upcoming demise.

The GOP should take these threats seriously, and work day and night to re-elect President Trump and take back the U.S. House.

Trump should take the gloves off in his second term and carry out substantial immigration restrictions such as ending birthright citizenship and chain migration, fully funding the border wall, restricting pathways to citizenship, and completely defunding sanctuary cities to deny Democrats the permanent electoral majority they so desire.

The time for talk is over.
