"I don’t think we’re looking to rip up NAFTA as much as we are looking to right-size it and make it fairer," Scaramucci said as quoted by the Hill. "He’s got a great relationship, by the way, with the Mexican president."
Scaramucci pointed out nobody on the Trump team seeks to promote full protectionism, and noted that Trump regularly talks to Mexican president Enrique Pena Nieto.
"We understand the economic harm and the impact that would take," he added.
Trump has threated to impose a 35 percent tariff on imports from relocated factories in Mexico, but he made no mention of Canada, which depends on the US market for more than three-quarters of its exports.
The Canadian government has already indicated its willingness to discuss renegotiation of NAFTA.
