Trump warns may terminate Nafta treaty

23 Août 2017

Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau (L) and U.S. President Donald Trump talk as they arrive for a family photo, during the G7 Summit in Taormina, Sicily, Italy, May 26, 2017. " I think we'll end up probably terminating NAFTA at some point...."

"Personally, I don't think we can make a deal", the President told thousands of supporters at the Phoenix Convention Center.

Regardless, he assured the crowd, "you're in good hands".

NAFTA did away with most barriers, including tariffs, on trade between the US, Canada and Mexico.

Trump's comments appeared to hit the Mexican peso.

During his presidential campaign, Trump focused his attention on NAFTA, calling it the "worst trade deal in history", and vowed to rework or terminate any trade deal that negatively impacted American workers and the country's economy.

Talks to renegotiate the trade agreement involving Canada, Mexico and the United States got underway last week, after Mr. Trump threatened to scrap the treaty unless the US got better terms. Bloomberg reports that the next round of negotiations is scheduled for Sept. 1-5 in Mexico, with talks moving to Canada in late September and back to the October.

The Canadian and Mexican negotiators agree that NAFTA needs to be updated, but they have defended it as an economic success story for expanding trade between the three countries.

Earlier this year, Trump said he decided not to terminate NAFTA and instead renegotiate it after calls with both countries' leaders.
