Ingraham: Trump's Deal With Mexico Shows He's 'Methodically Fulfilling His Campaign Promises'
Laura Ingraham said in her "Angle" commentary on Monday that President Trump delivered on one of his biggest campaign promises by announcing a new trade deal between Mexico and the United States.
The president announced that he plans on terminating the existing North American Free Trade Agreement and will call the new deal the "United States-Mexico Trade Agreement."
Ingraham said that in doing so, "Trump is methodically fulfilling his campaign promises" amid what she called "media sideshows."
"That means fair deals that will allow all parties to prosper. Isn't that what we want?" she asked.
She added that the "so-called experts" who doubted Trump have consistently been wrong and have underestimated him.
Ingraham also said she believes that Mexico's current president, Enrique Peña Nieto, and its president-elect, Andrés Manuel López Obrador, both see the wisdom of bilateral agreements with the U.S.
It's now up to Canada, Ingraham said, to sign on to the Mexico agreement or work on its own deal with the United States in the future.
Both Canada and Mexico have said they wanted to retain NAFTA, but Trump has said he's also willing to work separately with them.

"Why should Mexico and the United States allow their trade relationship to be held hostage to domestic politics in Canada?" Ingraham said.
The new deal with Mexico will set the benchmark, Ingraham added, for any future deals in the Northern Hemisphere.
