US President Donald Trump said that he will begin renegotiating the North American free trade agreement when he meets with the leaders of Canada and Mexico.
A central promise of trump’s campaign was that he would revamp the old trade pact.
Trump said he had scheduled meetings with Canadian Prime mInister Justin Trudeau and Mexican President Enrique Peña Nieto.
Former President Barack Obama was critical of NAFTA as a candidate, too. His effort to renegotiate the deal came in the form of the 12-nation trans-pacific partnership, which would have imposed democratic-favored labor and environmental rules on the countries included in the deal, including Canada and Mexico.
