Trump hints at NAFTA withdrawal, says Mexico will pay for wall

FREE TRADE AGREEMENT

"I don't think that would be very productive", Couillard said as he arrived in Charlottetown for the annual meeting of New England governors and eastern premiers.

The Mexican government said Sunday it will not negotiate trade agreements or any other aspect of its relationship with the USA over social media, following President Donald Trump's tweetstorm attacking Mexico on NAFTA negotiations and the country's rising drug violence.

"We want to strengthen our relationship as Mexico's most trusted dairy trading partner so we can continue to work together for the benefit of dairy sectors on both sides of the border", USDEC president and CEO, Tom Vilsack, said.

Mr. Trump said in a tweet on Sunday that Mexico and Canada were being hard in the Nafta talks and that he may have to start a withdrawal process to get a good deal for the U.S.

At a rally this week in Phoenix, Trump said he would "end up probably terminating" Nafta "at some point". Trump is struggling to convince Congress to stump up the money needed to pay for the controversial project, and has threatened to shut down the government if they do not.

LePage said he's spoken with Trump about free trade and advised Canadians against reading "too much in what you sometimes hear". The key question concerns whether the United States is ultimately looking for a modernized, updated agreement overall or, for political purposes, will insist on terms that the leaders of Canada and Mexico may find political impossible to accept.

StubHub stops listing Cowboys-Texans tickets after price hikes; will donate profits
The NFL has cancelled Thursday's Dallas Cowboys-Houston Texans preseason game, according to a report Wednesday morning. Watt began the fundraiser on Sunday with an initial donation of $100,000 and setting the goal for $200,000.

"One way or the other Mexico will pay for the wall", Trump said. "This is not a deal that you would ever sign", Trump added. We need the wall very badly. Slide into the trade spaces the USA appears to be making its way out of.

Now - while this remains a centrepiece of his populist speeches - he accepts USA funds will pay for construction, and Mexico will be forced to re-pay in some way later on.

"He hasn't said they're not, either", Sanders said. This has caused understandable concern for producers, but if the USA maintains the right priorities in these negotiations, the agriculture industry can benefit from an updated agreement.

"Personally, I don't think we can make a deal ..."

Cornyn told reporters at an event in Austin that Texas has become one of the number one exporters of oil and gas and oil and gas equipment to Mexico in recent years.
