Trump renews threat to scrap NAFTA

Donald Trump

President Trump, however, was not entirely focused on this natural disaster.

President Trump said on Sunday that he may terminate the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA) because Mexico and Canada are "being very hard".

In a separate Sunday morning tweet, Trump repeated his pledge that Mexico will eventually pay for his proposed border wall, saying the barrier is needed due to Mexico's high crime rate.

"I will be going to Texas as soon as that trip can be made without causing disruption", he wrote.

Nafta has been a target for Trump since the presidential campaign.

In response, Mexico's foreign ministry issued a statement Sunday afternoon reiterating the country's position that it will not "in any way or under any circumstance" pay for Trump's signature border wall.

Last week, the us president had proclaimed to his supporters gathered in Phoenix, Arizona, that he would "probably" by cancelling NAFTA, " at a certain time ". He added: "Psychologically, it means something". He said renegotiation process with Mexico and Canada are very hard and we may have to terminate the deal.

Trump has recently tied funding for his wall to domestic politics and an impending deadline for the funding of government.
