    Mexico has already signed a trade deal with Argentina and is negotiating with Brazil for to replace some of the cash crops it imports from the US.

    Canada signed a major trade deal with the EU and is a participant in the TPP.

    Nobody thinks of Trump as a reliable business partner. They could re-negotiate NAFTA and Dumb Donald could change his mind the next day. When it comes to dealing with the US, all bets are off.

    They know we are not going to cut off all their exports cold turkey, the American people will never stand for such a thing. So in the meantime China is starting to invest in new markets while the US withdraws within our own borders and pretends the rest of the world is not there.

    China is far more forward thinking that we are right now and they will take a loss with a country like Mexico to build up a customer base.
