  • Donald Trump says he'll terminate Nafta

"I will be formally terminating NAFTA shortly", Trump told reporters aboard Air Force One en route from the Group of Twenty (G20) summit in Argentina, according to a White House press release. And some Democrats said the administration may have no choice if it wants to get the deal through the Democratic House. "It worked very well". "(The leaders signed it, but the countries" legislatures still must ratify the USMCA trade pact.) The Times said if no deal can be reached in six months, "both versions of the treaty would be void, which would result in far more restrictive trade that could have a severe impact on industry and agriculture in all three nations, economists have warned".

Trump, for example, wrote in a Twitter post Sunday night that China had agreed to "reduce and remove" all tariffs on USA auto imports, a change that could have major implications for American companies shipping cars overseas.

Trump added, "This is an unbelievable deal for our farmers". It won't stop outsourcing, it won't raise wages, and it won't create jobs.

"It helped us get to where we are", MacNaughton said at a Public Policy Forum dinner in Ottawa.

She cited a lack of enforcement tools for labour standards, drug company "handouts" and a lack of sufficiently robust measures to cut pollution or combat climate change, particularly in Mexico.

A 2016 congressional research report said there is a debate over whether a president can withdraw from a trade deal without the consent of Congress, and there is no historical precedent for the unilateral withdrawal from an free trade deal by a president that had been approved by Congress. It shouldn't be a problem in the Senate where Donald Trump has a slim majority but in the House, even if all the Republicans vote for it, they'll have to pick up at least 20 or 25 Democrats to support it as well.




Rubio's office said Monday that the senator had asked Lightizer to look into additional trade actions to protect Florida growers, and that Lighthizer had committed to requesting a fact-finding investigation and taking corrective action. "It allows Mexico to dump government-subsidized produce on the US market".

"President Trump campaigned against the major flaws in global trade agreements that the original NAFTA created the framework for, and rightly so".

Ultimately, Canada-U.S. trade could be governed by the rulebook of the World Trade Organization, Weekes said.

Mr Trudeau told Trump at the signing that the two leaders should work together to reduce those tariffs.

He appended that they do away with NAFTA. But some party members would lead Democrats on board. "This all puts the Democrats in a pretty good spot to make demands". I think everyone, almost everybody, whether they have an R or a D after their name, realizes this is important for the economy and certainly for trucking. A number of the their concerns will be addressed in the implementing legislation that will have to be brought forward for ratification, he added.
