Report Trump-Trudeau Fall-Out in Federal Politics Posted June 15, 2018 · Edited June 15, 2018 by turningrite 36 minutes ago, bush_cheney2004 said: Trump was right to insist on a sunset clause...here's why: I'm not an opponent of the idea of a sunset clause. And I agree that public input into the FTA/NAFTA arrangements was cursory, at best. But five years seems a very short time period. It's taken North America almost ten years to recover from the last major recession, for instance. Although I'm not a huge fan of regional trading pacts in general and believe trade is better regulated under WTO rules and procedures, I think a much longer time frame should be set to examine the effectiveness of deals like the NAFTA.
