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.'”

McClatchy report ends

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 White House Walks Back From DACA Deal…. For Now

Published

on

Emerald Robinson, the Newsmax White House Correspondent, reported that White House advisor Jared Kushner is holding meetings on a potential DACA amnesty deal.

She tweeted, “BREAKING: sources confirm that White House advisor Jared Kushner has been holding meetings on DACA amnesty deal – with a goal of getting it done before the 2020 election.”

For many America First activists, Kushner has played a subversive role in the Trump administration by recommending milquetoast policies that maintain the open border status quo and are soft on crime.

Many speculate that Kushner is largely the individual who is advising President Trump to take a soft approach against the looters rampaging across the country.

Now there are reports that the White House is backing away from this DACA deal per a report from Breitbart News.

However, grassroots immigration patriots such as Maria Espinoza, the co-founder of the Remembrance Project, had choice words for this rumored move by Jared Kushner.

She told BLP:

Donald Trump’s promise to The Remembrance Project’s angel moms, dads, and angel families of ‘Stolen Lives’ was to deport illegal aliens and keep American families safe. No family should suffer the killing of their loved one at the hands of an individual who should not have been in our country in the first place.

Any talks taking place should be about keeping us safe so that our families, businesses and communities can thrive.  It’s heartless for Kushner to even hold talks of amnesty.

Espinoza added:

Kushner, an unelected individual, certainly should not negotiate to keep illegal aliens in our country!  Illegals, by the way who have shown no regard for our laws, and have had ample time to become legal continue to snub our law.
A Kushner Amnesty for illegal alien DACA recipients will ensure that millions of Americans will stay home in November, which will quash President Trump’s re-election.

DACA refers to Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals, a United States immigration policy where some illegal aliens who were brought to the country as children in order to obtain a renewable two-period of deferred action from deportation and receive eligibility for work permits in the U.S.

Back in 2014, President Barack Obama revealed his intention to broaden DACA provisions to cover even more illegal alien immigrants.

This is in contrast to the Development, Relief, and Education for Alien Minors Act. Under the DREAM Act, illegal aliens would be granted temporary conditional residency that includes the right to work if they were brought to the United States as minors. If they meet additional qualifications, they would be able to receive permanent residency.

Although these kinds of proposals are different, they’re all a part of a mass migration agenda designed to undermine the Historic American Nation.

Kushner and his ilk believe that offering reasonable compromises will somehow placate the Left.

In reality, such compromises will only further embolden them, given the fact that the voting patterns of these groups overwhelmingly favor the political Left and its many pet projects such as the destruction of the right to bear arms.

Although the DACA threat may be contained for now, as long as Open Borders Inc and its many factions continue operating, there will always be a looming threat of legal migration expansion, amnesty, or backdoor amnesties.

This is why it’s so important that America First patriots score major victories in all branches of government.

The time to engage in political discourse is over. Now, we must force politicians to go on record via roll call votes. From there, we’ll know who’s America First or America Last.
