Breaking News: The End of NAFTA?

CNN is reporting that Trump is "considering withdrawing from NAFTA in the coming days, though President Donald Trump has not yet decided how to proceed[.]"

If you haven't been paying attention to the Canada-US news this week - there's been a kerfuffle over trade of lumber and dairy.

Still, I for one didn't think this was a precursor to NAFTA withdrawal. After all, what about that NAFTA World Cup bid just a few weeks ago?

As someone who teaches a good number of Canadian students every year, I'll be watching this one closely. And praying that the TN visa comes out of this unscathed.


UPDATE 2017_04_27: Grateful to wake up this morning to find out that Trump had "pleasant and productive" conversations with the leaders of Mexico and Canada last night and that NAFTA can stay for now. My blood pressure can't take this drama!
