The Heat: US, Canada continue tense NAFTA talks

The Heat

Trade negotiations

After hours of negotiations, Canada said there’s still more work to be done before signing off on a revised North American Free Trade Agreement, known as NAFTA.

U.S. President Donald Trump put the pressure on Canada to reach a compromise, after reaching a preliminary deal earlier this week with Mexico.

The U.S. president informed the U.S. Congress Friday he still intends to sign a new agreement by late November, with or without Canada.

CGTN’s Daniel Ryntjes reports.

To discuss all of this:

  • Aurel Braun is an professor of international relations and political science at the University of Toronto.
  • Arturo Sarukhan is a former Mexico Ambassador to the U.S. and is an international strategic adviser.
  • Michael Johns is the co-founder of the U.S. National Tea Party movement and a former White House speechwriter for U.S. President George H.W. Bush.
  • Simon Lester is the associate director at the Center for Trade Policy Studies at the Cato Institute.
