Amid media accounts that Trump was planning to announce a full withdrawal from NAFTA on April 29, I learned that many of his close advisers had persuaded Trump not to go through with withdrawal, but to renegotiate NAFTA instead.

On April 27, President Trump announced he had decided to renegotiate NAFTA rather than withdraw.

What had happened is that President Trump had run smack-dab into one of the internationalist establishment's most important steppingstones toward world government, the North American Union. The NAFTA agreement represents the foundation of the eventual NAU, a supranational governmental entity that would be comprised of the three formerly sovereign nations, the United States, Canada and Mexico.

What's needed to counteract these plans for a North American Union is for the U.S. to withdraw from NAFTA. However, It is not clear from reviewing various relevant laws and the NAFTA agreement itself whether the president can terminate our membership in NAFTA by himself, or whether Congress must also act.

Just as the UK is restoring its national independence with its Brexit from the European Union, we need to restore U.S. independence with an Amexit from NAFTA, the foundation of the developing NAU.

Please help stop the NAU by calling U.S. Rep. Mike Simpson asking him to reject renegotiation and instead supporting U.S. withdrawal from NAFTA.
