Justin Trudeau says Canadians are tough negotiators

Trump Didn’t Have A Meeting Scheduled With Trudeau — But He Canceled It Anyway

"He said the negotiation was very hard, that it might not be possible (to reach a three-way deal), but that they (Canada) had made a proposal", he told a press conference. They suspected that Canada, which had said it wasn't bound by USA deadlines, was delaying the talks until after provincial elections Monday in Quebec, where support for Canadian dairy tariffs runs high.

Mexico sees a quick agreement between the United States and Canada on the reform of the treaty of free trade in north america Nafta, already renegotiated between Mexico city and Washington. A spokesman for USTR did not respond to requests for comment on the talks.

Trump cited dairy as a sticking point, but Yussuff said the Canadians needs a guarantee it won't be hit with new tariffs if they sign a deal.

Mexico also secured an exemption from U.S.

The text will flesh out an agreement in principle reached by the United States and Mexico on August 27 that aims to rebalance automotive trade between the two countries and modernize the almost 25-year-old NAFTA with new chapters on digital trade, stronger labor and environmental standards. The Trump administration could face barriers in Congress if it tries to advance a deal without Canada. "We don't like their representative very much". "There's going to be a lot of business opposition to peeling Canada off and leaving it in limbo".

Relations between the Canadian and USA leaders have been chilly since June, when Trump left a Group of Seven summit in Canada and then accused Trudeau of being dishonest and weak.




On Capitol Hill, senior Republicans such as Sen. The administration had set a weekend deadline for Canada to join, a schedule created to allow Mexican President Enrique Peña Nieto to sign the deal before leaving office and being succeeded by incoming President Andres Manuel Loprez Obrador. Freeland and U.S. Trade Representative Robert Lighthizer spoke on Friday, one person said. "Canada has a long way to go". Talks remain snagged on several issues, including US demands for greater access to Canada's dairy market and Canadian resistance to scrapping a dispute settlement procedure. "This president has always been a bit of a showboat and I think Canadians have become accustomed to this".

Asked about the challenge that autos tariffs would pose, Trudeau said Canada would need to feel confident "about the path forward as we move forward - if we do - on a NAFTA 2.0". "Canada has treated us very badly".

President Donald Trump claimed he snubbed a meeting request from Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau at the United Nations this week. Canadian officials say they never requested a meeting.

Auto tariffs would substantially impact Canada, a major auto exporter.

If Canada misses this weekend's deadline, it could later be added to the U.S. However, it would also upend North American supply chains and complicate life for US automakers. "At the end of the day, USA negotiators are agreeing, but it still has to be the president that signs off, and who knows where he is on things".

Details are also expected on an automotive side-letter that preserves the Trump administration's ability to impose global national security tariffs on imports of autos and auto parts, granting Mexico a quota for tariff-free exports to the United States that allows some expansion of production. The agreement also mandates 40 percent to 45 percent of content will be made by workers earning at least $16 an hour.
