Trump says Canada, Mexico 'very difficult to deal with' during NAFTA negotiations
U.S. President Donald Trump on Wednesday railed against Mexico and Canada’s efforts in renegotiating the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA), saying both of the United States’ neighbors had been very difficult.
“NAFTA is very difficult. Mexico has been very difficult to deal with. Canada has been very difficult to deal with … They have been very difficult to deal with, they have been very spoiled. What they asked for is not fair.”
“But I will tell you that in the end we win,” Trump told reporters at the White House. “Our autoworkers are going to be extremely happy.”
