After Trump forced Mexico and Canada to negotiate a new trade agreement, the three Heads of State at the G20 Summit in Buenos Aires today met (30 November) to formally sign it. A perfect timed photograph captured the thrill of the meeting.
In a moment that demanded unity, Trump put “America First” true in shape. While the outgoing Mexican president Enrique Peña Nieto and the Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau signed their respective copies of the agreement with pencils, Trump took a thick black marker, his favorite writing tool.
The result was clear when Trump held up the contractual agreement, a trade mark that has lent itself to memes. Pictures from the event event Trump proudly views the new version of NAFTA, one of the few campaign ceilings he has met. The only clearly visible part of it is its own name.

Trump, Pena Nieto and Trudeau attend the USMCA signing ceremony on November 30th.
The American President’s giant black signature hits the middle of the paper. The lighter signatures from his counterparts are barely visible, but another little force moved from Trump along with his long handshakes and extra shots of glass.
Peña Nieto reflected Trumps gesture, but seemed distracted in the above photo by Trudeau, who just looked at him.
