    Donald Trump said that United States will terminate its involvement in the North American Free Trade Agreement if a fair deal cannot be renegotiated.

    WASHINGTON (Sputnik) The United States will terminate its involvement in the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA) if a fair deal cannot be renegotiated, US President Donald Trump said while speaking to reporters at the White Hosue with Argentinian President Mauricio Macri.

    "Now, if I'm unable to make a fair deal, if I'm unable to make a fair deal for the United States, meaning a fair deal for our workers and our companies, I will terminate NAFTA," Trump said. "But we're going to give renegotiation a good, strong shot."

    Trump has often decried trade deals like NAFTA — which was signed by former President Bill Clinton — as a bad deal for the United States.

    One of Trump’s first acts upon becoming president of the United States was to withdraw the country from the Trans-Pacific Partnership free trade agreement that had been negotiated by his predecessor Barack Obama.
