Trump says "no political necessity" to keep Canada in new NAFTA deal

Canada Trade Talks In Jeopardy After Leaked ‘Off The Record’ Trump Comments

Canada Trade Talks In Jeopardy After Leaked ‘Off The Record’ Trump Comments

"We shouldn't have to buy our friends with bad trade deals and free military protection", Trump tweeted on Sunday, making it clear that Canada must fall in line with the specific demands raised by Washington or face the prospect of being excluded from the redesigned North American Free Trade Agreement. The president warned Congress not to meddle with the trade negotiations or he would terminate the trilateral trade pact altogether.

"There is no political necessity to keep Canada in the new NAFTA deal".

On Canada, he said: "I think it is going to happen and we really have developed a really good relationship".

"Remember, NAFTA was one of the WORST Trade Deals ever made".

The president said last week that the US and Mexico have come to an understanding on the basics of a trade agreement, and said it wouldn't be called NAFTA, but Mexico continued to use the phrase.

Trump then admitted to "scaring the Canadians into submission by repeatedly threatening to impose tariffs".

When the Trump administration notified Congress previous year that it meant to renegotiate NAFTA, critics note that it said it would enter talks with both Canada and Mexico.

Trump has charged that the deal wiped out American factory jobs. He added: "We make new deal or go back to pre-NAFTA!"

"We're not there yet", she said.

Canada is the No. 1 destination for American products shipped overseas, and more than 8 million U.S.jobs are supported by trade with Canada, according to the U.S. Chamber of Commerce.

This week's new round of U.S.

Even when Wallace framed the question as a choice to derail things like NAFTA renegotiation or trade deals, Trumka still said that it "probably will be Democrats" that the unions support in November.

Trumka's comments come after Trump warned Canada on Saturday that it "will be out" of a revised NAFTA deal unless it's "fair" to the USA, and threatened to scrap the current deal should Congress "interfere" with the negotiations.

The jab came a day after controversial remarks to Bloomberg he claims had been "off the record" leaked to the Canadian press as the two countries sought to negotiate a North American Free Trade Agreement deal.

It's unclear where Canada and the USA stand in negotiations and whether NAFTA talks could soon come to a close.

"I love Canada, but they've taken advantage of our Country for many years!" "This is a very complex agreement and we are going to continue working at it".

He said the United States would have to give six months notice to both Canada and Mexico if it intends to withdraw.

"We've been told for over 25 years, trust us, this agreement will be good for workers". As we said from the outset, our objective in these talks is to update and modernize NAFTA in a way that is good for Canadians, good for Americans and good for Mexicans. "If you break off one member of this agreement, you break it all, and that would be bad news for US businesses, for American jobs, and for economic growth", Donohue said.

Canadian negotiators spent the week in Washington trying to find common ground on issues ranging from tariffs on dairy products to trade dispute resolutions.
