Trump says in no rush to get NAFTA deal

Trump administration nearing deal with Mexico on revised NAFTA — but issues with Canada remain

Not a single USA governor or senator has asked to pull their country out of NAFTA, Bachand said, which is Canada's true trump card in the negotiations, he added.

When the first round of NAFTA renegotiations began on August 16, 2017, Mexico was the trading partner under pressure from the Trump administration.

Talks were due to continue on Thursday afternoon.

Regardless of whether one agrees with Trump's negotiating tactics, Orava said, if the administration can land a good agreement on a new NAFTA, "it will validate their approach to US trade policy is effective and generating results and worthwhile". He then said, in reference to Canada, "Their Tariffs and Trade Barriers are far too high".

China is unable to give us a deal that is acceptable. Guajardo is leading a Mexican delegation comprised of negotiators from the current administration and a transition team from the new administration that takes office in December.

For four straight weeks, USA trade czar Robert Lighthizer and Mexican Economy Minister Ildefonso Guajardo have held bilateral negotiations on the North American Free Trade Agreement, while Canada has been absent from the bargaining table.

The United States has sought tougher rules on what percentage of a vehicle's components need to be built in the Nafta region to avoid tariffs, as well as demanding that a certain number of cars and trucks be made in factories paying at least US$16 an hour.

The flags of Canada, Mexico and the United States are seen on a lectern before a joint news conference on the closing of the seventh round of NAFTA talks in Mexico City, Mexico, March 2018.

But both Mexico and the US have strong incentives to push through a deal quickly.

In exchange, the United States trade representative, Robert Lighthizer, appears to be showing flexibility on an earlier demand for an automatic five-year termination of NAFTA and a proposal to make it easier for the U.S.to press anti-dumping claims against seasonal produce like tomatoes from Mexico.

U.S. President Donald Trump is suggesting Canada has deliberately been left on NAFTA's sidelines as one-on-one talks heat up between Washington and Mexico. The new rules also would include language aimed at having more cars and parts produced by workers who make wages well above the average low rates in Mexico.

"If you don't have a breakthrough, as you call it, don't do the deal because it's a lousy situation for the United States", he told Lighthizer. Let me restate a paragraph from that article for consideration. "Whether that happens or not depends on the will of the White House". If the Trump administration got its way the effect would be to pressure auto makers to shift a lot more production to the USA from Canada and Mexico, an outcome neither of those two countries is willing to accept.
