WASHINGTON (Reuters) – U.S. House of Representatives Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi on Friday warned the Trump administration that the NAFTA trade agreement should be maintained as a trilateral pact between the United States, Mexico and Canada and not just a U.S.-Mexico arrangement.
Whatever deal ultimately is reached in negotiations will be reviewed by the next Congress that convenes in January and Pelosi could be the speaker of the House if Democrats win this November’s elections. “I think it should be trilateral,” Pelosi told reporters, adding that she does not think it would be “in the interest of this hemisphere” to turn NAFTA into a bilateral trade agreement.
