Trump: Trade Talks with Mexico Going Well; Canada Should Wait

WASHINGTON – United States President Donald Trump said on Friday that the trade negotiation with Mexico “is going very well” and described President-elect Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador as a “true gentleman.”

“Deal with Mexico is coming along nicely. Autoworkers and farmers must be taken care of or there will be no deal. New President of Mexico has been an absolute gentleman,” Trump said in a message on Twitter.

“Canada must wait. Their Tariffs and Trade Barriers are far too high. Will tax cars if we can’t make a deal!” he added.




Trump did not clarify in his tweet whether he referred to the ongoing renegotiation of the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA) with his two neighbors or to individual negotiations on other commercial aspects.

The United States, Canada and Mexico have been renegotiating NAFTA for months after Trump threatened to withdraw from the agreement.

However, the US president has raised the commercial tension in recent months with these countries, considered strategic allies of the US, as well as with the European Union.

In fact, the US government decided in June to end the exemption from steel and aluminum tariffs from the EU, Canada and Mexico.

In addition, Trump has threatened to impose other tariffs on Canada, especially after the post-G7 Summit confrontation with Prime Minister Justin Trudeau.

Among the possible charges will be a 10 percent tariff on automobile components produced in Canada and another 25 percent on vehicles assembled in that country.
