Trudeau denies requesting meeting with Trump at UN

NAFTA: Lighthizer hints Mexico pact may need to be reopened if delayed

The prime minister made the comment a day after Trump told reporters that he had rejected a request for a meeting with Trudeau to discuss the ongoing renegotiation of the North American Free Trade Agreement.

President Donald Trump said Wednesday that he rejected a one-on-one meeting with Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau over the trade dispute involving the North American neighbours and renewed his threat to slap tariffs on cars imported from Canada as negotiations drag on.

"We're not getting along at all with their negotiators", Trump said, warning that the U.S. would soon go after Canadian auto imports.

"But a good fair deal is still very possible".

Malmstrom reacted strongly to the suggestion that the US administration is attempting to bully Freeland after Trump criticized Canadian NAFTA negotiators in a press conference Wednesday.

Trump had kind words for incoming left-wing President Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador, calling him "great".

He said both that there's a "good chance still" that the USA and Canada will reach a deal, but also that "probably or possibly" they won't.

It's about positioning, it's about reaction, about spaces defensively, closing them, offensively using them. When asked about transitioning Fabinho into the squad, he explained: "It's not really hard ".

In May, the United States imposed steep tariffs on steel and aluminum from much of the world, including Mexico. The Canadian dollar weakened to its lowest in more than two weeks against the USA greenback early on Thursday.

"We're in dialogue with the Italian government to help them get maximum information about how this is benefitting Italy, and what Italy can do to take advantage of it", she said.

"Plan A, B, C and D is NAFTA".

President Donald Trump's administration will nearly certainly fail to meet this weekend's deadline for including Canada in a new North American trade agreement, The Washington Post reports. "We think their negotiators have taken advantage of our country for a long time", he said. "Mexico made a very good deal".

U.S. Trade Representative Robert Lighthizer - Freeland's counterpart at the talks - on Tuesday had complained Canada was not making enough concessions and said time was running out. A spokesman for the U.S. Trade Representative's Office declined to comment.

"They have treated our farmers in Wisconsin and NY state and a lot of other states very badly", he said. "And frankly we're thinking about just taxing cars coming in from Canada". "This is an abject failure", Higgins said. The president said it would be called "USM", for the USA and Mexico, instead of "USMC", and offered blunt criticism of the Canadian team engaged in the talks. He was asked twice if he'd quit the current NAFTA pact, and didn't say. Trudeau responded briefly on Thursday. Polls suggest Trudeau would easily retain power in a federal election set for October 2019. Canada's dairy market has remained largely closed to the United States ever since American dairy farmers were caught excessively dumping products inside of Canada's markets several decades ago. Half the voters in IN also rejected the idea.
