The trade war is not meant to be won, but to be continued forever

So....it's The Forever War....of trade and Trump?

Also, don't change the NAFTA tag. It's still NAFTA. Even if Trump did deed poll the name to USMCA.

ALso, good work on calling the outcome in essence over a year ago:

I now suspect that the much-ballyhooed NAFTA renegotiation is going to end with stricter rules of origin, say 80% instead of 62½. There may also be some weakening of the dispute-resolution mechanism and higher labor standards. But I increasingly think that the Trump administration will refrain from blowing it all up.

Another eternal war, to be added to the War on Terror, the War on Drugs, and the War on Christmas.
