Trump slams Canada's `decades of abuse' after Nafta talks stall”

The jab came a day after controversial remarks to Bloomberg he claims had been "off the record" leaked to the Canadian press as the two countries sought to negotiate a North American Free Trade Agreement deal. "Congress should not interfere w/ these negotiations or I will simply terminate NAFTA entirely & we will be far better off..."

He told Bloomberg News in an interview published Friday that he would not compromise with Canada and said that he would take a stance "so insulting they're not going to be able to make a deal", according to the Toronto Star.

In a series of tweets on Saturday the president pointed out there is "no political necessity" to keep Canada in the new NAFTA deal. The deal would then not be a reworked version of NAFTA, but a bilateral U.S. -Mexico trade deal. "We were far better off before NAFTA - should never have been signed", he continued. The U.S. lost thousands of businesses and millions of jobs. "We make new deal or go back to pre-NAFTA!" We were far better off before NAFTA - should never have been signed. Canada is the second-biggest trading partner of the USA, and Mexico is the third.
