Yesterday the news on Canadian national tv was that Mexico was not going to meet with Trump because they were insulted. It would be political suicide for the mexican president to be seen toddling off to meet trump.
Today on American national news Trump said they have made a mutual decision not to meet because it would be fruitless.
It s interesting for an american to observe these times from inside canada and see it through the lens of the other guy.
The conversation - on national tv - between mexico and canada revolves arounnd whether they should try again to form a triparty agreement for north america or if mexico and canada should form there own deal and each have a separate deal with the usa.
The mexican guy called that "the Chamberlain solution".
He was equating it with the british making a separate deal with hitler and enabling the horrendous consequences that followed.
