One of Trump's Bigger Lies

The lie: "Bill Clinton signed NAFTA".

The truth: NAFTA was negotiated during the George H.W. Bush administration and it was signed by him on December 17, 1992. What Clinton signed, a year later, was the legislation to enable the agreement that his predecessor had made.

Maybe Bill Clinton could have gone back on George Bush's word. He didn't. And the other bitter truth is that NAFTA would have not passed without Republicans, who largely supported it, when Democrats did not.

But hey, complaining that "Trump ignores facts" is like complaining that "bears shit in the woods".

I find it passing strange to find myself in agreement with Pat Buchanan: the two political parties are simply the two wings of the same bird of prey.
