Trump gestures withdrawing from Nafta

President Donald Trump intend to be withdrawing US from North American Free Trade Agreement (Nafta) and force Democrats to enact a revised version of it or risk the consequences.

He said would have no problem reverting United States to a pre-Nafta environment as it has worked very well in the past.

Trump added that the deal has not protected the dignity of jobs and labor conditions, and it’s been a disaster for the US.

A day before Trump signed a new deal with Mexico and Canada on the sidelines of the G20 summit in Argentina.

In January the landscapes in the country will shift significantly after the Democrats take control of the House of Representatives. They won last month’s mid-term elections.

Nancy Pelosi, who could be elected as Speaker of the House, said there is a doubt the bill would be passed without proper assurances from Mexico that mentioned labor standards will be enforced strictly.

Meanwhile, in his Argentina trip to G20 summit the president agreed holding off new tariffs against China in a meeting with Chinese leader Xi Jinping.

The move came as surprise to many.

Apart from these, the president confirmed his second summit meeting with North Korean leader Kim Jong-un will be held next year in January or February.
