Trade groups are pushing to preserve NAFTA in the wake of President Donald Trumps announcement of an agreement with Mexico.
President Trump says NAFTA has hurt the U.S., while trade groups say they value it.
President Donald Trump announced earlier today that the U.S. and Mexico will forge a new trade accord, potentially leaving Canada out of the trade equation altogether.
The revised trade agreement between the U.S. and Mexico won’t bring any new trade protection tools for U.S. growers of seasonal specialty crops.
President Trump said Monday that a trade “understanding” has been reached with Mexico.
Although Canada has been on the sidelines in NAFTA talks recently, Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau says he’s encouraged by the latest optimism in NAFTA negotiations but won’t sign just any deal.
As the two countries come together, Canada sits on the sidelines.
