  • Canada not helping itself by hitting US with tariffs White House

Trump called NAFTA as "the worst deal ever" during his campaign and presidency.

After the election, Lopez Obrador said he'll propose that his own team of experts be included in the trade talks.

The move has been viewed as a possible negotiating ploy to restart NAFTA talks, which could resume following Sunday's elections in Mexico. He said he supports the continued renegotiation of NAFTA and wants his own team of experts to be part of the talks before he takes office December 1.

Canada began imposing tariffs Sunday on $12.6 billion in USA goods as retaliation for the Trump administration's new taxes on steel and aluminum imported to the United States.

On Ottawa's tariffs on US goods, White House spokeswoman Sarah Sanders said Monday that it does nothing to help Canada and only hurts American workers.

"The president is working to trying to fix the broken system and he's going to continue pushing for that".

In addition, the Government of Canada will make available up to $2 billion to defend and protect the interests of Canadian workers and businesses in the steel, aluminum and manufacturing industries. These are all factors that point to a stalemate, said Moshe Lander, an economist at Concordia University. I have a feeling he's going to be fine.

"I don't see how he's going to be able to find an agreement that's going to be acceptable to, now, a left-wing populist, a right-wing populist and our country who is claiming hurt feelings as a basis for negotiations".

"NAFTA, I could sign it tomorrow, but I'm not happy with it".

Speaking on CBC News Network's Power & Politics Tuesday, Agustin Barrios Gomez said Canada needs to understand that Canada is living in a new world where the friendship that bound it to its southern neighbour "no longer is currency with the current administration" in Washington. The two discussed "mutually beneficial economic and trading relationship between the two countries", Trudeau's office said in a statement.

Lopez Obrador's opponents have suggested his election will create more tension with Washington at a time when relations are already fraught by the stalled talks on reworking Nafta and by Trump's immigration policies, including a planned wall along the USA border.

"We talked about border security, trade, NAFTA, we talked about a separate deal, just Mexico and the United States", Trump says about conversation with newly elected Mexican president Lopez Obrador.
