Tuesday, the White House released a statement about a new trade deal with Mexico and Canada that was met with great enthusiasm and excitement.

“USMCA is a great deal for all three countries, solves the many deficiencies and mistakes in NAFTA, greatly opens markets to our farmers and manufacturers, reduces trade barriers to the U.S. and will bring all three Great Nations together in competition with the rest of the world,” Donald J. Trump, President of the United States of America.

From the release:

  • President Trump has negotiated a new United States–Mexico–Canada Agreement (USMCA), which will benefit American workers and businesses where North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA) has failed.
  • For years, politicians have called for the renegotiation of NAFTA, but President Trump is following through where others have failed.
  • This new agreement will update and rebalance the 24-year-old NAFTA with modern provisions to serve the interests of American workers and businesses.

BENEFITTING BUSINESSES, FARMERS, AND WORKERS: President Trump has secured a number of wins for American businesses and workers in USMCA.

  • The Administration worked closely with partners to create a better deal that advances the interests of American workers, farmers, ranchers, and businesses.
  • American auto manufacturers and workers will benefit from new rules of origin requiring 75 percent of auto content to be produced in North America.
    • The new agreement will incentivize billions of dollars in additional United States vehicle and auto parts production.
    • Workers will also benefit from rules that will incentivize the use of high-wage manufacturing labor in the auto sector, supporting better jobs for American workers.
  • USMCA’s labor chapter represents the strongest labor provisions of any trade agreement.
    • USMCA’s labor chapter is a core part of the agreement and will make the labor provisions fully enforceable.
  • USMCA is a win for American farmers, ranchers, and agribusiness as it includes important improvements that will enable food and agriculture to trade more fairly.
    • Canada will eliminate its “Class 7” program that allows low-priced dairy ingredients to undersell American dairy products.
    • Canada will provide new access for American dairy products, eggs, and poultry.

MODERNIZING OUR TRADE RELATIONSHIP: USMCA will bring our trade relationship with Canada and Mexico into the 21st century.

  • NAFTA failed to keep up with the United States’ changing economy.
    • For years, NAFTA rules have helped incentivize offshoring, leading many manufacturing jobs to leave the United States.
  • The new agreement includes a modernized, high-standard chapter that provides strong protection and enforcement of intellectual property rights.
    • This includes 10 years of data protection for biologic drugs and a large scope of products eligible for protection.
  • USMCA contains the strongest measures on digital trade of any agreement.
    • This includes rules to ensure data can be transferred cross-border and to minimize limits on where data can be stored.

On Friday after declaring a National Emergency, President Trump retweeted a parody video meme of the State of the Union Address and pined it on the top of his page. Within hours, the video was no longer visible for anyone to see. However, the video can still be viewed from the account that originally uploaded and created it.

When the President’s supporters noticed Twitter censoring Trump’s retweet,  Carpe Donktum then re-posted his parody video on the thread with the caption “Twitter censoring you Mr. President? I got you fam.

 

According to Twitter’s reason for taking down the video only from the President’s page was due to copyright music playing in the background of the  video. REM were the band playing but decided to reach out to Twitter and not have their music played by Trump since they dislike the President. However, the independent journalist Ali Alexander suggested some legal advice for Carpe Donktum to keep the video on under the repurposing of art.

With the controversial Green New Deal making headlines after the Democrats took a radical step towards banning over 95% of vehicles, our only option would be the electric bullet train as our main transportation, if unable to purchase an electric car. However, Tuesday during  his first State of the State Address, the newly elected Governor of California Gavin Newsom announced he will change the project for the bullet train and instead make it travel from Merced to Bakerfied not from Sacramento to San Diego, as it was originally planned. Due to high taxation, what started as a project of $33 billion with a down payment of $9.5 billion in 2008, after a decade it skyrocketed to $77 billion. The Federal Government loaned $3.5 billion for the bullet train under terms to be repaid in December of 2022.

Now that the Governor changed the route and said that for the critics who say “it’s a train to nowhere, that’s wrong and offensive,”  President Trump took the opportunity to demand the $3.5 billion to be returned to the Federal Government. “California has been forced to cancel the massive bullet train project after having spent and wasted many billions of dollars. They owe the Federal Government three and a half million dollars,” tweeted the President, “We want that money back now. Whole project is a ‘green’ disaster!”

The Governor of California responded to Trump’s tweet calling his statement “Fake news.” Governor Newsome also said he will not return the money, “This is CA’s money, allocated by Congress for this project. We’re not giving it back.” The Governor insinuating that the President is desperate to collect money for the southern border.

The agreement between the state of California and the Federal Government is to finish the planned bullet train by 2022; Otherwise, the state must repay the Federal Government the $3.5 billion that was loaned by the previous administration if they decided to cancel the project. However, Governor Newsom rather finish “the train to nowhere” instead of returning the money to President Trump.
