Lighthizer hints Mexico pact may need to be reopened if delayed — NAFTA

However, if anything that might add more pressure on the U.S., which has squeezed a good deal out of Mexico. Trudeau said he had faith NAFTA negotiations would still lead to a deal despite concerns raised by US trade representative Robert Lighthizer on Tuesday that Canada was not moving fast enough to reach a deal by the self-imposed September 30 deadline.

"We’re very unhappy with the negotiations and the negotiating style of Canada".

The Canadian dollar fell after Trump’s comments, losing two tenths of a cent to $1.3041 per USA dollar at 5:54 p.m.in trading.
