Mientras el presidente Trump utiliza a los Dreamers, en su mayoría inmigrantes mexicanos, como moneda de cambio para construir su muro fronterizo, EEUU empieza la construcción de una embajada en México del tamaño de tres estadios de fútbol.
On the evening of September 26th, hundreds of students, faculty members, scholars, policymakers, and practitioners gathered at the breathtaking Irvine Auditorium to hear from the 47th Vice President of the United States and the former Mexican President. The topic of the Perry World House dialogue? “The Future of the Global Order in an Era of Nationalism, Populism, and Retrenchment.”
While Mexican government negotiators fight to save the North American Free Trade Agreement during talks in Washington, thousands of members of social and trade unions on Wednesday protested in Mexico City against the deal, claiming it marginalizes local farmers and hurts the country.
Trump ordenó a muchos de los embajadores nominados por su predecesor, Barack Obama, que abandonaran su cargo cuando él llegó al poder en enero, y ha sido lento a la hora de nombrar sustitutos. Entre ellos, hay diversos donantes importantes de su campaña y acaudalados empresarios.
La Administración Donald Trump ha manifestado su interés por renegociar el tratado de libre comercio entre los países de América del Norte, aunque también ha insinuado la posibilidad de que Estados Unidos se retire si considera que las condiciones no le favorecen.
There are many ways to evaluate the Trump presidency at the six-month mark. What I am struck by is the path not taken, the lost opportunity. Donald Trump had many flaws, but during the campaign, he tapped into a real set of problems facing America and a deep frustration with the existing political system. Additionally, he embraced and expressed -- somewhat inconsistently -- a populism that went beyond the traditional left-right divide. What would things look like at this point if President Trump had governed in the manner of a pragmatic, jobs-oriented reformer who was relentlessly focused on the “forgotten” Americans of whom he often speaks?
The United States has made clear its position for a renegotiation of the North American Free Trade Agreement, trying to prevent a foreign exchange manipulation.
Estados Unidos ha dejado clara su posición para una renegociación del Tratado de Libre Comercio de América del Norte, buscando impedir una manipulación cambiaria.
The Trump administration is determined to renegotiate the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA) -- which created a single market from Mexico’s southern border to the Yukon -- but the main political appeal of this policy rests on a popular myth: that “fair” trade requires the United States to have a surplus or balanced trade with both Mexico and Canada.
During official visit to Mexico City, the German Chancellor said walls are no answer to migration and lent support to Mexico over NAFTA
President Trump is an expert on some things. The North American Free Trade Agreement is not one of them.
Mexican Foreign Minister Luis Videgaray said Tuesday that cancelling the North Atlantic Free Trade Agreement would be a "lost opportunity" for the US, Canada and Mexico, but he reiterated that his country is "ready" for negotiations to update it.
There has been much focus on Donald Trump’s erratic foreign policy -- the outlandish positions, the many flip-flops, the mistakes. But far more damaging in the long run might be what some have termed the Trump effect -- the impact of Trump on the domestic politics of other countries. That effect appears to be powerful, negative and enduring. It could undermine decades of American foreign policy successes.
There are so many unusual, unprecedented aspects of Donald Trump’s first 100 days in office that it’s hard to know where to begin.
In an interview with the Reuters news agency to celebrate his 100 days in office, Mr. Trump said that a “major, major conflict” with North Korea was possible and that the U.S. was losing a “tremendous amount of money” defending Saudi Arabia.
The President of the United States Wednesday agreed with his Mexican counterpart and Canadian Prime Minister to immediately begin renegotiations on the North American Free Trade Agreement and not terminate it.
Everyone “knows” that Americans have soured on free trade and globalization, as President Trump keeps saying.
Secretary of State Rex Tillerson and Homeland Security Secretary John Kelly on Thursday downplayed the aggressive comments of President Donald Trump regarding stricter policies on illegal immigration in a tense visit to Mexico City, putting some of the responsibility for the problem on Central America.
Justin Trudeau says it's not Canada's duty to 'lecture' Trump on immigration
Among the flurry of jaw-dropping executive actions we’re trying to keep up with was President Trump’s withdrawal from the Trans-Pacific Partnership. The trade agreement between the U.S. and 11 other Pacific-rim countries was an attempt by the Obama administration to stem China’s growing influence in the region and around the world.
”Mexico braces for a trade war with Washington,” headline in the Financial Times, Jan. 31, 2017.
Let’s hope not, because a trade war triggered by President Trump would be an act of pure economic aggression, unjustified either by the United States’ economic and political interests or by Mexico’s behavior. It would be the economic equivalent of Russia’s seizure of the Crimea, a raw exercise in bullying.
In Davos, Mexico's main trade body dismissed the idea that Mexico has profited from globalisation at the expense of others, such as workers at US car factories.
With wavering positions on a variety of topics, Trump's cabinet nominees may be the clearest picture we get of what a Trump presidency may look like. Largely rich, white, and male with no Latino in sight, the white house will certainly uphold the title.
President Enrique Pena Nieto appointed his former finance minister Luis Videgaray, who Donald Trump called a “wonderful man,” as Mexico’s foreign minister Wednesday as he prepares for the change of command in Washington.
