On Labour Day, Trump hits back at largest union leader

The hidden gems of the US-Mexico trade deal

Trump was not invited.

Much of Kansas' farm output is sold to Canada, which has so far not been included in a trade deal to replace the North American Free Trade Agreement.

Talks to keep Canada in the trade bloc are to resume Wednesday as the two countries try to resolve thorny issues including Canada's dairy market and US efforts to shield drug companies from generic competition.

That timeline was the impetus for Trump's Friday letter to Congress notifying them of the preliminary agreement with Mexico.

Moran suggested Trump try to lower tariffs on dairy products going into Canada, but he urged the president not to move forward with a new trade deal unless Canada is on board.

"If we don't make a fair deal for the USA after decades of abuse, Canada will be out", he wrote. "Congress should not interfere with these negotiations or I will simply terminate NAFTA and we will be better off", he threatened, according to The Wall Street Journal on 1 September.

"NAFTA has had a devastating effect on the working people of this country for the last 25 years", he said.

A US-Mexico deal sealed on Monday excluded Canada. However, Canada and the US did not meet the negotiating deadline, and talks are to continue this week. American and Canadian negotiators will return to negotiations on Wednesday.

That sentiment appeared validated Friday morning when the Toronto Star published comments Trump had made in which he told Bloomberg journalists that negotiations to rework NAFTA would take place only on his terms.

Freeland tried to brush off the controversy.

"I have now been working with Ambassador Lighthizer and his team for more than a year". "He has brought good faith and good will to the table". "So, overall, workers aren't doing as well".

"Remember, NAFTA was one of the WORST Trade Deals ever made".

The U.S. -Mexico deal sought to end the mass exodus of manufacturing from the U.S., especially with automakers.

The 24-year-old NAFTA tore down most trade barriers dividing the United States, Mexico and Canada.

"No, those are good, but wages have been down since the first of the year".

Josh Roe, deputy secretary of agriculture in Kansas, stressed the importance of the NAFTA deal for Kansas farmers.

Echoing Trumka's words about the need to include Canada in any revised deal, Gary Shapiro, president and CEO of the Consumer Technology Association, said that any new agreement must include all three countries.

Continetti said the key to Trump's recent trade negotiations was concentrating on Mexico and leaving Canada to one side. Nieto's successor, Andrés Manuel López Obrador, has had representatives at the U.S. -Mexico talks, but if the deal is not signed before he takes office he could add new demands and complicate the deal.

He said Trump wants to make good trade deals that protect the American worker while promoting economic growth. Trumka, whose organization is an umbrella group for most unions, said the economies of the United States, Canada and Mexico are "integrated" and "it's pretty hard to see how that would work without having Canada in the deal".
