Two days ago, a communique from the White House advised that an executive order was being prepared for the US to leave NAFTA. Yesterday, the President said that he will renegotiate it.

Yet another reversal of intention - so far, there have been no actual policy statements on any matter - which begs the question, where are all the policy successes of the first 100 days?

At this rate, the President will run out of failures long before the end of his term!
(With acknowledgement of the original quote in the NY Times).

My Understanding is that the NAFTA order wasn't just a straight "We are pulling out" but rather a "We are pulling out if you give us x,y,z". So effectively playing chicken, and I am not convinced our NAFTA partners are going to be willing to come to the table.
