President Donald Trump, has shown his showmanship skills broadcasting on live television his congratulatory phone call with Mexico’s President Enrique Peña Nieto.
This is a strategy that Trump has utilized in contrant to former US Presidents like Obama and Bush, who their staffs cannot recall similar moves of openness.
Trump has also aired on live television Cabinet meetings where tax reform, foreign policy, the economy and other subjects were discussed.
This new deal is the renegotiation of the NAFTA deal that Bill Clinton negotiated and put in place, arguably at the cost of thousands of American jobs, especially in the car industry. For this reason Trump who is anti-Clinton saw it as his obligation to correct a bad deal.
The deal is a three-country deal and it included Canada who will be the next party that the US will negotiate.
