Mexico is the United States’ top trade partner. At least for the moment.
This, to my knowledge, is a first.
Mexico traditionally ranks third among U.S. trade partners, behind China and Canada.
This realignment shines a slightly brighter light on the essentially dormant U.S.-Mexico-Canada Agreement, which House Speaker Nancy Pelosi has bottled up in Congress, and President Trump’s since-retracted threat to close the U.S.-Mexico border over illegal immigration and drug issues.
