It can. Negative 2 minus negative 1 = negative 1.

However, it sometimes might be positive. Negative 5 minus negative 16 = positive 11.

If you have two equal negative variables, such as -a - -a, you will get -2a. -2a may still be positive though, if a is a negative number. An example of having two unequal negative numbers is -a - -b, which is -a + b. That may be positive or negative depending on what a and b are equal to.
