Trump to be briefed on NAFTA talks progress on Sunday - U.S

Most of the key provisions of the deal won't go into effect until 2020 since leaders from all three countries have to sign it and then Congress and legislatures in Canada and Mexico have to approve it, the Washington Post reports.

President Donald Trump pushed to renegotiate the terms of NAFTA since taking office a year ago.

Trumka added, "Our history of witnessing unfair trade deals destroy the lives of working families demands the highest level of scrutiny before receiving our endorsement". Analysts had warned the tariffs threatened to curtail economic growth and the creation of new jobs across the region, although Trump said the USMCA deal would not have been done without them.

In Quebec, meanwhile, politicians lamented that its key dairy sector was paying the biggest price in order to get a deal. "We got a win-win-win for all three countries", Trudeau said.

U.S. Trade Representative Robert Lighthizer and White House adviser Jared Kushner planned to brief Trump on Sunday on the talks, said a U.S. source familiar with the discussions. "These measures will support many - hundreds of thousands - American jobs", Trump said in remarks at the White House.

The president said he was having a "successful negotiation" with the EU.

"It takes a cloud and lifts it off the Canadian economy", said Bruce Heyman, the former US ambassador to Canada. Trump triumphantly proclaimed on Twitter that this was a "wonderful new Trade Deal", "historic", and "a great deal for all three countries".

Japan managed to halt the threat of US auto tariffs by reluctantly agreeing last month to bilateral trade talks with the United States.

Tariff side deals: The US came to side agreements with Mexico and Canada that would largely protect the two countries from tariffs on imported autos and auto parts. But it keeps a NAFTA dispute-resolution process that the U.S. wanted to jettison and offers Canada protection if Trump goes ahead with plans to impose tariffs on cars, trucks and auto parts imported into the United States. But Trump and other critics said it encouraged manufacturers to move south of the border to take advantage of low-wage Mexican wages.

The latter had been used on several occasions to successfully challenge United States anti-dumping and countervailing duties on its lumber and other key sectors. The association notes that this aspect of USMCA is beneficial for manufacturing customers that produce goods from scrap commodities processed in North America since they will be able to include scrap as part of the new 60 percent transaction value (or 50 percent of cost) cumulation threshold for duty-free trade within North America.

"We are not going to allow our steel industry to disappear", Trump said, adding that Sunday's deal would not have happened without the tariffs. "I have never seen anything like that in a trade agreement". "Second, the pricing system allowed for Canada to be competitive to export their excess skim milk powder, taking away market share from the U.S".

By June tensions seemed to have boiled over, with Trump leaving the G7 in Canada calling Trudeau "very dishonest and weak" just days after U.S. Secretary of Commerce Wilbur Ross announced the imposition of steel and aluminum tariffs on Canada and Canada announced its own dollar-for-dollar retaliatory tariffs on American-made steel, aluminum, and other goods.
