Trudeau Is Optimistic NAFTA Deal Can Be Reached


According to Reuters, Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau is optimistic that a deal on NAFTA can be reached before the end of the week. During a press conference in northern Ontario, Prime Minister Trudeau said an agreement is possible by Friday, but that will depend on whether the deal is good for Canada or not. Trudeau added that no deal is better than a bad deal regarding the free trade agreement between Canada, the US, and Mexico. But time is running short for negotiations, as US President Donald Trump set a deadline which is only two days away.
