President Donald Trump announced Wednesday a new trade deal with Canada and Mexico, in which the U.S. will receive several mid-round draft picks as well as cash considerations from both countries.
In return, Canada will get the rights to Maine and parts of Washington state, and Mexico will get a discount on the border wall bills if the wall is ever built. If the wall is not built, Mexico receives two seven round picks in 2022.
“This is way better than NAFTA,” Trump said at the deal signing. “In this deal we get payroll flexibility and can build a future championship contender. We will win so much in the future. You will get tired of winning with all these draft picks turning into superstars, believe me.”
Canada is rumored to already be shopping Maine to Denmark for a future first rounder.
