López Obrador tries again to persuade the Speaker to accept a new trade agreement.
[WSJ] The Speaker of the House who called a border wall with Mexico "an immorality" is still sitting on a Mexican request to approve a new trade agreement. What is the morality of ignoring this key priority of our southern neighbors?

In a letter this week, Mexico’s President Andrés Manuel López Obrador takes another shot at persuading Mrs. Pelosi to accept yes for an answer on a union-friendly renegotiation of the North American Free Trade Agreement:
Dear Madam Speaker:

Following up on my letter dated October 8, I would like to inform you that, with approval of our 2020 federal budget, which includes appropriations for implementing the labor law reforms that I have promoted, we have fully met our commitments regarding the United States-Mexico-Canada Agreement (USMCA).

A bona fide leftist, Mr. López Obrador by now must be wondering how many of the Speaker’s liberal allies he needs to lobby to get this deal done. Writes the Mexican president:

I reiterate here what I have said in my conversations with the Congressional delegation led by Representative Richard Neal, Chairman of the Boodle Central, and AFL-CIO President Richard Trumka, regarding a key concern that has been raised: you can be assured that we will fulfill our labor-related commitments.

#1 Alternate Headline: Alleged President of Mexico Struggles to Remain Relevant

Maybe AMLO should offer to build a wall. Trump would make him a deal in a New York minute.

#2 The MSM had this guy set to clean Trump's clock in international affairs. He's not even a decent stooge.
