U.S. president Donald Trump’s antics and rants are becoming more and more predicable with every passing day.
Early in his presidency Trump seemed more interested in beating up on Mexico than he did Canada.
Until last week, when he singled out Canada on everything from dairy to softwood lumber when trashing NAFTA, which most agree needs updating.
The great news is Prime Minister Justin Trudeau and crew didn’t fall for this bombastic rhetoric and stuck to diplomacy instead of mudslinging in the media.
The reality is, it takes more than a burst of hot air from Trump to change such deals, requiring approval from many.
That includes his own party, who hung the Donald out to dry and refused to pass their own healthcare bill.
This is typical Donald who believes to get the deal you weaken your opponent by shaking them down, putting them on edge, and creating confusion.
However, his unprediabilty has become predicable.
His opponents now see him coming, making his approach far less effective over time.
Sooner or later, the ‘Donald’ will have to deliver more than 140 characters and a 20 second sound bite.
But then, do we really want that?….
