Washington - President Donald Trump says if he’s unable to renegotiate a long-standing free trade agreement with Mexico and Canada, then he’ll terminate the pact.

That’s what he tells CBS’ “Face the Nation.” And it’s in keeping with what the president says he’s told the leaders of those two countries. He says he’s told them he won’t pull the United States from the North American Free Trade Agreement now, but could do so if he decides a renegotiated agreement isn’t “a fair deal for all.”

Trump signed an executive order Saturday directing the Commerce Department and the U.S. trade representative to conduct a study of U.S. trade agreements. The goal is to determine whether America is being treated fairly by its trading partners and the 164-nation World Trade Organization.
