Steel tariffs would come off if ‘new & fair’ NAFTA deal struck, Trump tweets

|By:, SA News Editor

Pres. Trump tweets that Canada and Mexico would win exemptions to planned tariffs on steel and aluminum only if the two countries sign a "new and fair" NAFTA trade deal.

"Also, Canada must treat our farmers much better... Mexico must do much more on stopping drugs from pouring into the U.S.," Trump says.

Ministers from the U.S., Canada and Mexico are scheduled to meet today to wrap up the latest round of NAFTA talks under the cloud of tariff threats.
