Talk about tone deaf.
Just a couple of days after U.K. voters rejected the increasingly oppressive progressive-globalist agenda of the European Union, Mexican President Enrique Pena Nieto is proposing his own North American multi-state alliance, saying that “what is happening elsewhere in the world invites us to strengthen our strategic alliance and especially to be much more inclusive.”
Nieto is presently in Canada to attend a North American leaders summit in Ottawa with Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau and U.S. President Barack Obama, cutely dubbed the “Three Amigos” summit.
In an earlier tweet about the meetings, Nieto said, “The purpose of this visit is to renew our bilateral relationship, to give it new life, to find ways to advance the prosperity and competitiveness of North America.”
While much of the discussion is expected to center on the matter of how the three countries can work together to achieve higher standards of clean energy output, grabbing the attention of some is the expectation that the meeting will produce the announcement of something called a “North American caucus” designed to formally piece together how the three nations can act more as a single body on behalf of issues both regional and global. In the words of Mark Feierstein, senior director of Western Hemisphere affairs at the U.S. National Security Council, “When North America acts and speaks as a single unit, it is really for the good of our citizens.”
Here we go.
