Liberals and Democrats welcome EU-Mexico trade talks

Almagro voiced his concern and solidarity with Mexico about the possible effects of Trump's wall and his measures against immigrants, the regional diplomatic bloc said. Meeting with the leaders of the House Ways & Means and Senate Finance committee at the White House and flanked by Ross and other senior trade advisers, Trump decried NAFTA as a "catastrophe" and declared "I want to change it".

As many as 130 trade associations and food companies, who have seen exports climb as much as four times in the last two decades that the NAFTA Treaty has been in place, have signed a letter to Trump pointing out the benefits of the NAFTA Treaty between Canada, Mexico and the U.S.

Mexico's foreign minister travels to NY on Thursday to meet U.N. Secretary-General Antonio Guterres just days after talks with Trump administration officials were undone by a dispute over US plans to build a border wall.

Trump says he doesn't care if "it's a renovation of NAFTA or a brand new NAFTA", as long as it's fairer for USA workers. You know what the F is for, right? "Not just free trade. free and fair trade. because its very unfair", the president repeated. We're going to take care of that also.

Mexico faces the prospect of a renegotiated North American Free Trade Agreement and higher U.S. import duties which could be disastrous for its economy.

Later in the day, he is also expected to address another rally in the poll bound state's Sangnur. But we do not talk saying that we will send so and so to jail", he said.

Since his January 20 inauguration, Trump has been largely silent on any potential trade issues with China, but he spent much of his campaign railing against America's negative trade balance with the country.

"I want to change it, and maybe we do it".

"The president believes that those interests are best secured by bilateral, rather than multilateral trade deals", he told reporters.

The move has been triggered by a "worrying rise of protectionism around the world", EU Trade Commissioner Cecilia Malmström, and the minister of economy of Mexico, Ildefonso Guajardo said in a statement on Wednesday. Reuters points out that in 2009 and 2010, Mexico put tariffs on 99 American exports in retaliation to the US blocking Mexican trucks from using USA highways.
