Trump Gets Labor Day Off to a Feisty Start

Those comments elicited a sharp counterattack from Trump, who blasted Trumka as an ineffectual leader just as union members across the country prepared for Labor Day celebrations.

During an appearance on "Fox News Sunday," Trumka said about Trump: "Unfortunately, to date, the things that he has done to hurt workers outpace what he's done to help workers. If we don't make a fair deal for the United States after decades of abuse, Canada will be out", Trump said on Twitter.

He went on to warn U.S. lawmakers against involving themselves into the negotiations, tweeting that should they do this he "will simply terminate NAFTA entirely and we will be far better off". Per the leaked remarks published Friday, the president was discussing negotiations with Canada on a trade deal that could replace NAFTA and indicated an unwillingness to compromise, saying any deal would be "totally on our terms". While the law, on average, added an extra $33,000 to the coffers of the richest taxpayers, only two percent of workers reported receiving a pay increase or bonus after their corporate employers benefited enormously.

Aside from the procedural questions, including a six-month notice requirement, Trump would also certainly face a backlash from members of Congress, state governors and US business leaders whose constituencies and companies would pay an economic price if Canada - America's largest goods export market in 2017 - were left out. But many manufacturers responded to the agreement by moving factories south of the border to take advantage of low Mexican wages, then shipping goods north to the United States and Canada.

Continetti said the key to Trump's recent trade negotiations was concentrating on Mexico and leaving Canada to one side.

He warned that unless the new deal is a trilateral one, it won't get congressional backing or the support of the business community. "And it's pretty hard to see how that would work without having Canada in the deal".

At the same time, Mr. Trudeau's team refused to bend on a top US demand that Canada end high tariffs on dairy products and protections for lumber and paper industries.

Trump's move on Friday to notify Congress that he planned to sign a deal with Mexico in 90 days and would include Canada "if it is willing" appeared to avoid what many in the USA business community and Congress had seen as a worst-case scenario.

Donald Trump said there is "no political necessity" to keep Canada in the NAFTA agreement if a "fair deal" can not be reached. However, Canada and the USA did not meet the negotiating deadline, and talks are to continue this week. Nieto's successor, Andrés Manuel López Obrador, has had representatives at the U.S. -Mexico talks, but if the deal is not signed before he takes office he could add new demands and complicate the deal. Mexico swiftly retaliated with import tariffs on some American goods, including steel, apples and pork. They agreed to resume talks on Wednesday. Ottawa does have other complaints. "If we do not make a fair deal for the United States after decades of abuse, Canada will be out", Trump tweeted. He also said he does not believe a revised pact will work without Canada being involved. Between 8 and 10 percent of Kansas agriculture exports are sold to Canada, including meat from the state's packing plants, flour and soybean products.
