Trump Gives Update on NAFTA Negotiations


On Tuesday, President Donald Trump gave an update on ongoing NAFTA talks with Canada and Mexico, saying a new North American Free Trade Agreement could be agreed on quickly. At a Cabinet meeting briefly attended by reporters, Trump said, "NAFTA, as you know, is moving along. We’re doing very nicely with NAFTA. I could make a deal really quickly, but I‘m not sure that’s in the best interests of the United States. But we’ll see what happens." Just a day earlier, Trump fanned uncertainty by threatening to tie a NAFTA deal to Mexico’s immigration controls, a notion Mexico's government quickly dismissed.
