Trump: ‘I’m very happy’ with new NAFTA deal
President Donald Trump on Friday said he’s very happy with the new NAFTA pact he signed on Friday.
Trump said he signed the pact with Canada, Mexico and the United States to prevent a trade war and the loss of American jobs.
The president said he wants to protect American jobs and businesses and he wants his negotiators to do the same.
Trump and Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau signed the trade agreement after months of negotiating over the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) and other trade deals.
The agreement will come into effect in March 2020.
Trump called the deal a “historic day” and said he has been working for months on a new agreement with Mexico and Canada.
Trump signed the NAFTA agreement in the Oval Office of the White House in Washington, DC, U.S. on February 1, 2021.
The agreement is expected to reduce the U.N. trade deficit with the U., and to bring back millions of jobs lost to China.
