President Trump: 133 Food and Ag Organizations Ready to Work with You on Trade

Canada's Ambassador to the Unitied States David Mac Naughton says Canada could become collateral damage in Trump's trade war

Mexican President Enrique Peña Nieto said Monday that as part of a comprehensive dialogue with the new Trump administration, he will ask that any expulsion of Mexican migrants from the United States take place in an orderly, coordinated manner.

US President Donald Trump has said that he will soon begin "renegotiating" the North American Free Trade Agreement (Nafta) with his Canadian and Mexican counterparts.

President Trump has promised to reverse the agreement and bringing back the manufacturing job to the he stated many times during campaign.

If he's not openly hostile to Canada, Trump has spoken repeatedly about renegotiating NAFTA, which affects Canada.

The fitness shift that should worry every gym owner. He added that the risk of Canada suffering collateral damage from the NAFTA talks was low.

President Donald Trump signs an executive order as Vice President Mike Pence looks on at the White House in Washington, DC on January 20, 2017. "This strategy starts by withdrawing from the Trans-Pacific Partnership and making certain that any new trade deals are in the interests of American workers".

Mr Pena Nieto said Mr Trump's victory was forcing Mexico to redefine its relationship with its northern neighbour.

"We will be starting negotiations having to do with NAFTA", Trump said Sunday at a swearing-in ceremony for his top White House advisers. The U.S. sells more manufactured goods to Canada than Canada does in return, and Canada is the largest trading partner for 35 states. That could upset Mexico, whose economy has suffered since Trump started expressing unhappiness with USA companies that have factories there. "We need to make sure we maintain and even improve our pork exports to our neighbors while working to ensure that others benefit as much as we do". Mr Schwarzman chairs a panel of business leaders who give Mr Trump advice.

Trump "has understood that the authorization that Congress gives defines exact timing and movement, because to negotiate first he needs authorization from members, he then has 90 days to lobby and only then can he enact changes", Guajardo said.

"They haven't said anything specific about any real problems that they have with us", said David MacNaughton, Canada's ambassador to Washington and a key player on the NAFTA file.

"I think they're receptive to that argument". Trump said. "I ran a campaign somewhat based on NAFTA".

The so-called border tax adjustment is meant to encourage US companies to source their goods from American suppliers.
