Canadian Foreign Affairs Minister Chrystia Freeland will meet again with US Trade Representative Robert Lighthizer

President Donald Trump may be insisting that the US will be "better off" without a North American free trade deal that includes Canada, but American unions do not agree-and neither does the tech industry.

But President Donald Trump's own words may have undermined negotiators' efforts heading into the final day of talks.

President Trump moved forward with plans to submit a standalone trade agreement with Mexico to Congress on Friday after leaked comments, in which he said he would not compromise with Canada, scuttled a three-way deal.

If they can't strike an agreement that is good to the U.S. "I think we're close to a deal".

He says on Twitter that a deal will go ahead with or without Canada's involvement, and if Congress tries to intervene, he will "terminate NAFTA entirely".

The deal also included stronger labour standards, requiring that 40 to 45 per cent of auto parts in cars sold in the U.S.be made by workers earning at least US$16 per hour.

A US-Mexico deal sealed on Monday excluded Canada. But they're our allies.

Wallace then cites some economic statistics to Trumka, including the low unemployment rate, the jobs created, and the fact that he has used tariffs to "break down trade barriers I know that you hate", and asked Trumka how he would rate the President when it comes to workers. -Mexico deal before the 90-day clock runs out.

In June, Trump originally indicated he would agree to sign the G7 joint communique, but blasted Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau as "weak" in an attack tweet after he left.

For example, the U.S. International Trade Commission, an independent federal agency, this week scrapped the Commerce Department's duties on uncoated groundwood paper from Canada, saying the shipments don't threaten American producers.

The U.S. -Canada talks are set to resume Wednesday.

Trumka also said that Trump's proposed replacement for the North America Free Trade Agreement won't work without Canada.

"Our officials are continuing to work toward agreement", US Trade Representative Robert Lighthizer said in a statement, stressing the benefits to US workers and businesses. "The government of Canada will not sign an agreement unless it is good for Canada and good for Canadians". Congress eventually would have to approve any agreement.

Mr. Trump wants to get a trade deal finalized by December 1.

The 90 days will run out November 30.

US President Donald Trump tweeted on Saturday there was no need to include Ottawa in any new NAFTA trade deal.

Rep. Kevin Brady, Texas Republican and chairman of the House Ways and Means Committee, said NAFTA needed updating and the president's notification was an important step toward that goal. "These are deals which have been reworked to the advantage of the United States, but there are no more such renegotiations planned. this NAFTA negotiation is special - it's the last in the renegotiations that he wanted to undertake". The deal would then not be a reworked version of NAFTA, but a bilateral U.S. -Mexico trade deal. Free Trade Agreement, which preceded NAFTA.

A major sticking point for Canada is that the deal eliminated the settlement system for anti-dumping disputes, NAFTA's Chapter 19.

Ottawa and Washington seem upbeat about the chances of reaching a deal, but Mr Trump is due to leave Washington just after midday, local time, for an event in North Carolina, which may add to the time pressures if the U.S. president wants to be the one to announce any agreement.
