President Trump terminated the two-decade old NAFTA trade deal Monday; unveiling a new pact with Mexico and putting increased pressure on Canada to yield to American demands in upcoming negotiations.
The Commander-in-Chief announced the new US-Mexico Trade Agreement from the Oval Office Monday afternoon, hailing the bilateral pact as “one of the largest” deals in history.
The move places new pressure on Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, who has threatened a potential “trade war” with President Trump after he unleashed a crippling round of sanctions against foreign-produced steel.
“I think with Canada, frankly, the easiest we can do is to tariff their cars coming in. It’s a tremendous amount of money and it’s a very simple negotiation. It could end in one day and we take in a lot of money the following day,” Trump said.
