Canada 'will be out' of trade deal unless it's 'fair'

Canadian Foreign Affairs Minister Chrystia Freeland will meet again with US Trade Representative Robert Lighthizer

The decades-old trilateral trade agreement, which was first signed in 1994, has been a frequent target of Trump, who has criticized large trade deficits the USA has with Mexico and Canada, as well as the relocation of American jobs and companies. While the majority of Americans, including Congress believe we are friends with Canada, and this is a friendship that goes back hundreds of years, some people also believe Trump is no friend to Canada or anyone else, unless it suits his own personal agenda.

Trump contends in the Saturday morning tweet that there is "no political necessity" to include Canada in a deal, after the US and Mexico reached an agreement on Monday. Canada cited its ongoing disagreement with the USA over allegations it dumps lumber into America as a reason to keep the panels, they said. "Congress should not interfere with these negotiations or I will simply terminate NAFTA entirely & we will be far better off", the tweet read. According to a study on the deal effects back in 2013, NAFTA was directly responsible for raising the United States trade deficit with Mexico from $17 billion to $177 billion, and cost the U.S. over 850,000 jobs.

Continetti said the key to Trump's recent trade negotiations was concentrating on Mexico and leaving Canada to one side.

The withdrawal process would require Trump to give Mexico and Canada 6 months' notice of his intent to leave the pact.

Trumka not only said he's anxious to see America "move forward" with the deal, he bashed the prior incarnation of NAFTA, and those who upheld it.

Mexico's Economy Minister Ildefonso Guajardo said he expected to rejoin his U.S. and Canadian counterparts for trilateral talks. But Canada's dairy industry - backed by Quebec politicians of all stripes - is adamant that it won't stand for the government allowing the US any more market access, saying it has compromised enough on past trade deals with the European Union and Pacific Rim countries.

Canadian officials accused the US side of refusing to offer concessions. ABC News reports Trump confirmed the leak in both a tweet and while at an event Friday in Charlotte, North Carolina, saying: "I love Canada but they have taken advantage of our country for many years".

Trump's renewed threat to withdraw from NAFTA comes as U.S. Trade Representative Robert Lighthizer and Canadian Foreign Affairs Minister Chrystia Freeland are set to resume negotiations Wednesday. "This is a very complex agreement and we are going to continue working at it". A Business Insider report from April said us sanctions on Russian Federation hit it "where it hurts".

Mr. Trump notified Congress on Friday that he was moving ahead with a U.S.

One individual pointed out that when it comes to hypocritical support of American workers, Trump is not alone.

Mike Huckabee took issue on Labor Day with AFL/CIO President Richard Trumka over his comments about the economy and American workers, saying there is no way he could say matters are not good.

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