Trump says U.S. might prefer separate trade deals with Canada, Mexico instead of NAFTA

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - U.S. President Donald Trump said on Friday he might prefer to end the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA), which the United States is renegotiating with Canada and Mexico, in favour of two bilateral agreements with its neighbours.

“I wouldn’t mind seeing NAFTA where you go by a different name, where you make a separate deal with Canada and a separate deal with Mexico. Because you’re talking about a very different two countries,” Trump told reporters.
