- President Donald Trump wants to hold a ceremonial signing for the new US-Mexico-Canada trade deal before the midterms to give the GOP a political boost.
- Canada and Mexico are not keen to join since Trump’s steel and aluminum tariffs remain in place.
- The three countries are continuing discussions on a deal to remove the tariffs.
- The US wants the two countries to accept a quota system instead.
President Donald Trump’s trade policy is getting in the way of his desire to hold a ceremony to claim a major trade victory.
