President Trump’s stand against world pressure for him to continue the one-sided deal with Iran is a defining moment in world history. His announcement in May to terminate the agreement is a watershed in the fight against globalism.
One small event for man, one big moment for mankind, to paraphrase Neil Armstrong’s words when he landed on the Moon. It is not the interaction between the United States and Iran that is so significant here, but the rejection of the world order that has reigned supreme since World War II.
The wrong path of globalism will no longer be the road for our country, as President Trump wisely charts a new course in which international deals must be as fair to the United States as they are to foreign countries. Just as important is how the United States will no longer bow to pressure from Western Europe or anyone else about how we manage our foreign policy.
The Trump White House has consistently shown their willingness to stand by promises even when the western world pressures them. He stuck by his promise to move our embassy to Jerusalem. The Trump administration removed us from the Trans-Pacific Partnership. They removed us from the bad Iran Deal.
Meanwhile, the disastrous North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA) is up for renegotiation, and Trump’s rejection of globalism bodes well for this issue also. Far from seeking to renew that deal, Trump should look to terminate as much of it as possible.
Economically, NAFTA has been far more harmful to the American economy than the Iran deal was. Trump’s criticism of the Iran deal as one-sided applies with greater force to NAFTA.
The flood of illegal drugs into our country, along with illegal aliens, has been facilitated by NAFTA. The loss of manufacturing jobs to south of the border is the result of NAFTA, too.
NAFTA was never properly ratified as a treaty because it never had the necessary support in the Senate. The agreement should be terminated and any replacement should only be considered under the 2/3rds ratification requirement of the Treaty Clause, which is the provision that globalists hate most about the Constitution.
