Trump hails trade pact as the 'most important deal ever'

Canada-US reach deal to reform NAFTA

Trump and Trudeau agree on a revised NAFTA deal

The United Steelworkers of Canada adopted a less conciliatory tone after the new trade deal was announced, calling it a "sell-out" for Canadian workers.

But, with the new NAFTA deal - or the USMCA, as it's now known - Trump has reportedly said that Prime Minister Trudeau is a good guy and that plans are underway to remove the tariffs against Canada.

"The United States is respected again but it's also respected as to trade and industry", President Trump told reporters in Washington.

The USMCA, according to the Canada dairy association, not only gives more access to the Canadian dairy market, but it also "lets the Americans dictate" Canada's dairy policies.

This clause could be used to prevent China from trying to circumvent the steep tariffs that the US has slapped on Chinese imports by funneling its merchandise through either Canada or Mexico.

In exchange, United States negotiators have agreed to retain Chapter 19, the dispute resolution mechanism of NAFTA, and exemptions for Canadian creative industries.

But not everyone is happy!

He said Canada did not simply accept "any deal".

Let us know YOUR thoughts by tweeting and Facebooking us! Thus the dairy market became a hard point in NAFTA negotiations, with Canada eventually conceding on the issue.

Canada had resisted American moves to remove the provision, keen to be able to challenge USA trade penalties. "These measures will support many - hundreds of thousands - American jobs", Trump said in remarks at the White House.

"But for 25 years as a civilian and businessman I used to say, 'How could anyone sign such an agreement?' With this agreement we are closing all of these awful loopholes, they're closed, they're gone". In the end, Canada and the USA overcame their differences after both sides conceded some ground, hailing an agreement that covers a region of 500 million residents and conducts about $1 trillion in trade a year.

USMCA will open up some of Canada's dairy market to US farmers. "I've always felt that this would be a trade coalition of the willing to send a message to China that they've got to shape up and start behaving like a citizen in the new world of trading", Kudlow said.

Leaders from all three countries must sign the USMCA, and Congress, as well as legislatures in Canada and Mexico, have to approve it.

US-Canada talks bogged down earlier this month, and most trade analysts expected the September 30 deadline to come and go without Canada being reinstated. Under NAFTA, Canada was able to limit how much milk and dairy products could be brought in from the United States.
