Canada Rejects U.S. Push To Replace NAFTA With Bilateral Trade Deal

But while Pence stands ready to fill in for Trump again this week, the president is convinced that his attendance at the G-7 summit is essential and is planning to travel Friday morning to Quebec, according to three White House officials.

The global trade system "is a mess".

Trump and the White House have not commented publicly on the report.

In April, Canada tried to address what Trump said were concerns about Chinese steel and aluminum being dumped into Canada and then being shipped into the United States.

Kudlow said Tuesday on Fox News that the president is "seriously considering" negotiating with Canada and Mexico separately, and forming two bilateral trade agreements.

British Prime Minister Theresa May called Trump's tariffs "unjustified" and Trudeau said the national security rationale for imposing them was "insulting and unacceptable".

Trump also is set to hold a series of one-on-one meetings, including with Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau and French President Emmanuel Macron.

But both USA neighbors are opposed to that possibility and Mexican President Enrique Peña Nieto and Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau reaffirmed their commitment to reaching a new trilateral deal in a telephone conversation last week.

When asked whether or not they think Trump's actions will cause a trade war, 62 percent of participants said it is likely, with 20 percent saying that result is unlikely and 19 percent stating they had no opinion.

Putin, Trump 'Regularly Talk' Over the Phone
The country's new government of conservatives and populists, headed by the youthful Mr. TRT World's Simon McGregor-Wood weighs in on Putin's visit to Austria.

When President Donald Trump arrives in Canada this week for a summit of the Group of Seven industrialized nations, he is expected to seek what he considers a better deal for USA workers rather than worry about America's leadership role in the world.

Following the announcement, Trudeau blasted the barriers, calling Trump's move "totally unacceptable", and the Canadian government announced retaliatory tariffs on USA goods.

Of the nearly $6.5 billion worth of pork exports from the U.S.in 2017, nearly a quarter - over $1.5 billion - was imported by Mexico, data from the U.S. Department of Agriculture showed.

Officials in Brussels, who are leading the member states' response, said nations had given broad support for a plan to set duties on €2.8bn (£2.5bn) of USA exports.

"The United States now has the fastest growing economy in the world, according to the OECD or at least the fastest growing economy among the industrialized nations", said Kudlow, who worked as Reagan's budget deputy between 1981 and 1985. But they'll have a significant impact on the targeted United States industries.

"Some said it couldn't be done".

"NAFTA has kind of dragged on", Kudlow said of the negotiations. The policies are working.

US-Mexico trade is worth about $600bn annually and about 16% of US goods go to its southern neighbour. About 16 percent of all US exports go across the southern border, while about 80 percent of all Mexico exports are bought by the U.S.

Trump tweeted in March that "When a country (USA) is losing many billions of dollars on trade with virtually every country it does business with, trade wars are good, and easy to win". "Record Jobs numbers. Nice!"
