President Donald Trump says the United States is close to a “big Trade Agreement” with Mexico and he’s citing improving ties between the two countries.
Trump says on Twitter the U.S.-Mexico relationship with Mexico “is getting closer by the hour” and he says a trade deal “could be happening soon!” He’s spoken of better relations with America’s neighbour following the rise of Mexican President-elect Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador (ahn-DRAYS’ mahn-WEHL’ LOH’-pez OH’-brah-dohr).
The U.S. And Mexico have been discussing a trade deal as part of negotiations over the North American Free Trade Agreement.
The Trump administration is seeking a revised version of that trade deal with Mexico and Canada.
Trump’s relationship with Mexico has been strained over his push for it to pay for his border wall.
