I'd assumed that Trump was going to do a few cosmetic changes and declare victory, since anything more would be far too difficult. But now the U.S. Chamber of Commerce has decided they have "no choice but to ring the alarm bells"...and seeing as the Chamber of Commerce tends to be ridiculously over-the-top partisan in their support for the GOP, that's pretty worrisome. I'd hope that someone in the White House realizes that killing NAFTA would tank their economy too, but I'd getting less and less sure of that.
I’m feeling increasingly nervous about what the result is going to be of these NAFTA negotiations.
I mean, the options are either they didn't know that Milewski would be doing the interview (which reflects very badly on Singh's comms team, and doesn't seem likely, seeing as Milewski tweeted that Singh asked for questions beforehand), or they knew Milewski would be doing the interview and didn't think the topic would come up (which also reflects badly on Singh's comms team, since that's the kind of thing you should do homework on before sending your guy in for an interview).
Yeah, the Air India bombing was a story Milewski has been following for decades now. Assuming people do prep for these kind of interviews (can the NDP afford researchers? :p), they should have expected this question. Particularly if they were demanding the questions beforehand.
I don't know, he sounded exactly the same during the leadership debates in terms of giving politician's non-answers and while I was somewhat sympathetic of him then, he simply doesn't have any excuse now. If he wasn't prepared, then he shouldn't have agreed to do the interview in the first place.
Also, I checked because I was confused why Milewski was doing an interview and yeah, he retired last year. I'm not sure if he's been covering for someone for a while (Barton doing the National soon I guess?), or he just appeared to interview Singh, but someone really should have known that he was the Air India reporter who was sued by the World Sikh Organization.
