Canada reaches trade deal with U.S.

ㅤ"The agreement preserved a NAFTA dispute-resolution process that the U.S. wanted to jettison, the official told The Associated Press ahead of an official announcement. The official was not authorized to speak publicly and requested anonymity.
ㅤThe agreement also exempts tariffs on 2.6 million cars. On dairy Canada essentially gave the U.S. the same access it offered in the Trans Pacific Partnership trade agreement that President Donald Trump rejected."

ㅤô¿ô …Based on this info it seems the USA has given in to Canada to prevent hiccups in the Mexico trade deal. It’s questionable how binding this agreement with Canada really is.

Donald Trump warns Congress not to 'interfere' in his revised NAFTA deal

ㅤ”‘Congress should not interfere w/ these negotiations or I will simply terminate NAFTA entirely & we will be far better off,’ Mr. Trump tweeted. ‘There is no political necessity to keep Canada in the new NAFTA deal. If we don’t make a fair deal for the U.S. after decades of abuse, Canada will be out.’
ㅤMr. Trump notified Congress Friday that he was moving ahead with a U.S.-Mexico deal to replace NAFTA, possibly without Canada, signaling that talks with Ottawa had bogged down. Congress will be asked to ratify the deal after 90 days.
ㅤThe President said Saturday that the North American Free Trade Agreement with Mexico and Canada ‘was one of the WORST Trade Deals ever made.’
ㅤ’The U.S. lost thousands of businesses and millions of jobs,’ Mr. Trump tweeted. ‘We were far better off before NAFTA – should never have been signed. Even the Vat Tax was not accounted for. We make new deal or go back to pre-NAFTA!'”

White House pushes backs against business criticism of NAFTA talks ㅤ ㅤ ㅤ ㅤ……

Story at The Washington Examiner, notes at the DC Drain, image from hdnux(.com).

ㅤ”The president’s objectives with the NAFTA renegotiation are to create great jobs for Americans and reduce an unconscionable trade deficit. The president has been clear that NAFTA has been a disaster for many Americans, and achieving his objectives requires substantial change. These changes of course will be opposed by entrenched Washington lobbyists and trade associations. We have always understood that draining the swamp would be controversial in Washington.” — Emily Davis, spokeswoman for the U.S. Trade Representative’s Office
