Trump says NAFTA deal with Mexico must happen fast

Mexico's incoming president wants to work with Trump to end NAFTA talks anti-establishment alliance

Canada has requested a NAFTA Chapter 20 review of the safeguard tariffs imposed by the USA on imports of solar photovoltaic (PV) cells and modules, it was announced on Monday.

According to the Ministry of foreign Affairs of Canada, these rates are detrimental to workers in the industry to create clean energy on both sides of the border.

A letter proposing rapid negotiation of a new NAFTA agreement focused on credit for fighting poverty and building infrastructure, was delivered from Mexico's President-elect Andrés Manuel López Obrador (AMLO) to President Donald Trump July 13, via Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, and is now on the website of the Mexican political leader.

Lopez Obrador, a progressive anti-establishment leftist, won Mexico's presidential election on July 1 with 53 percent of the vote, and is set to take office on December 1.

Mexico's president-elect Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador holds a news conference at his campaign headquarters in Mexico City, Mexico July 23, 2018.

His comments come hours after Bloomberg reported Mexico was pushing for a NAFTA deal by the end of August and follows an Axios report German chancellor Angela Merkel is open to negotiating a trade deal to prevent Trump from carrying out his threat to put 25 percent tariffs on auto imports into the U.S.

The spat over metals has diminished relations between Canada and the US, with Trump hurling personal insults at Trudeau on Twitter, and raising questions about whether the NAFTA talks can proceed.

Although, Manziel didn't end up playing for Sherman, as the coach was replaced after Manziel's redshirt freshman season. Sherman has expressed his excitement with reuniting with Manziel, who will likely get his chance to play in Montreal.

Over the past 18 months, we have seen a marked shift in USA trade policy. It called the tariff illegal and unfair.

"The new president, terrific person", Trump said in a speech at the White House about American manufacturing.

The Trump administration lobbied in June for individual trade deals with Canada and Mexico after three-way talks fizzled.

"Prolonging the uncertainty could slow down investments in the medium and long-term".

The positive comments come after Trump spoke warmly of Lopez Obrador on Monday, saying he expected to get "something worked out" on NAFTA.

Guajardo is due to meet his Canadian counterpart Chrystia Freeland on Wednesday, also to discuss NAFTA. One question asked respondents for their biggest national security concern.

He said the answer has less to do with traditional perceptions of threats to national security, and "reveals a more general concern about the impact of the Trump administration on Canadian interests, including our economic interests".
