Canada takes Trump’s threats to withdraw from NAFTA ‘seriously’, Morneau says

Like Trump, Democrats from industrial areas in the Midwest have traditionally opposed NAFTA and have now gained more influence in Congress and with Trump's help, for the first time in more than 25 years actually are in a position to kill the trade pact that has always been opposed by American trade unions, such as the United Auto Workers. "The president needs to talk to Congress on this", the Ohio Democrat told CNN on Sunday.

Democratic Senator Sherrod Brown of OH says the USA needs to reopen discussions with Mexico and Canada on trade.

Trump, Prime Minister Justin Trudeau and former Mexican president Enrique Pena Nieto signed the new U.S. -Canada-Mexico Agreement - USMCA, although the federal government in Ottawa has rechristened it CUSMA - during an awkward ceremony at the outset of G20 meetings Friday in Argentina.

If Congress doesn't approve the replacement agreement and Trump follows through on his new threat to scrap NAFTA, it could leave Mexican- and Canadian-made vehicles facing additional tariffs and regulations of various kinds.

He is not recognizing that what he is doing is actually creating an animosity against his people, "said Mattis". Mattis said, in the Indo-Pacific region, we keep our decades-old alliances strong by building new partnerships.

Canada takes U.S. President Donald Trump's comments about pulling out of NAFTA seriously and has no indication when the White House might act, Finance Minister Bill Morneau said on Monday, Reuters reported.

U.S. President Donald Trump says he intends to tell Congress that he plans to terminate NAFTA in an effort to pressure lawmakers on Capitol Hill to approve its recently negotiated successor.

The agreement, if approved, would be for five years, but Crawford thinks that is a mistake.

Trump had to submit the text of the agreement to Congress by Friday to set up a slim chance of passing implementation legislation for the deal before January, when Democrats will assume the House majority. MacNaughton said Canadian diplomats will rev up their machine to lobby members of Congress for their support. "A great deal." Trump said Saturday, during a press conference on Air Force One. "I commend President Trump and our US Trade Representative, Ambassador Lighthizer, for their perseverance, leadership and hard work". "(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".
