Trump threatens to exclude Canada from 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

"It's pretty hard to see how that would work without having Canada in the deal", Trump said.

"Congress should not interfere with these negotiations or I will simply terminate NAFTA entirely and we will be far better off". But it's questionable whether Mr. Trump can unilaterally exclude Canada from a deal to replace the three-nation NAFTA agreement, without the approval of Congress. But Saturday's tweets opened the door again to that outcome.

US-Canadian trade talks are set to resume on Wednesday, and Ottawa and Washington still have time to reach an agreement that would keep Canada in the 25-year-old trade pact with Mexico.

"We can't have these countries taking advantage of the United States", he told supporters in North Carolina. He has vowed to negotiate a better deal - or withdraw from NAFTA altogether. "The White House now has 30 days before it must present the full text of the new agreement to Congress, which will give Ottawa and Washington time to iron out remaining differences".

Because of that, negotiations could still drag on for not just days but weeks.

For Canada, losing access to the US market would be a severe economic blow. "Big progress being made!"

"I think the real question is where is Trump's base on Canada", he said.

Iran Defense Minister in Damascus, says Will Help Rebuild Syria
So instead of an epic naval and aerial clash, expect Russian Federation to stick to its real weapon for modern war: propaganda. More than 1,000 Iranians, including senior members of the elite Revolutionary Guards, have been killed in Syria since 2012.

Trudeau reiterated his government wouldn't concede to US demands to dismantle its dairy system, known as supply management.

Canadian officials, speaking on background Saturday, said they were not going to respond to tweets. The U.S. has tremendous upside potential as we go about fixing some of the worst Trade Deals ever made by any country in the world. She declined to identify the trickiest issues that were holding up a deal.

Trumka also criticized Trump over the Republican tax law passed last fall, arguing it would increase the outsourcing of American jobs.

Trump has threatened to slap additional tariffs on imported autos from Canada if the two sides are unable to reach a new trade deal.

Trump's comments came after the United States and Canada failed to meet a Friday deadline imposed by the Trump administration to revamp the NAFTA trade agreement as major differences remain in bilateral talks. Nieto's successor, Andrés Manuel López Obrador, has had representatives at the U.S. -Mexico talks, but if the deal is not signed before he takes office he could add new demands and complicate the deal. Any vote in U.S. Congress is unlikely to take place before 2019. "They're representing the Democratic Party, whatever the Democrats do, that's great". "But for the government of Canada to sign an agreement, it needs to be in the best interests of Canada and Canadians", the official said. "Instead they bought back record amounts of their own stock, boosting the market to all-time highs, making the rich richer, while workers' wages actually declined when inflation was factored in".

"If we don't make a fair deal for the USA after decades of abuse, Canada will be out", he wrote. If I say no, then you're going to put that and it's going to be so insulting they're not going to be able to make a deal.
