Trade war   Washington hopes to reach an agreement with Mexico
The head of the White House wrote on Twitter that he is working closely with some people from the government and elected President Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador.

A major trade agreement with Mexico may be coming soon, the U.S. president announced.

Trump has been heavily criticized by Mexican authorities and the international community for his efforts to build a monumental wall on the border with Mexico, as well as for his policies towards migrants.

Now, Washington hopes to reach an agreement with Mexico on the renegotiation of the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA), with the idea of Canada to decide later if it wants to join the talks.

During the last few days, the Mexican Secretary of Economy, Ildefonso Guajardo, met with the U.S. Foreign Trade Representative, Robert Lighthizer, to discuss positions regarding NAFTA.

This agreement reached in 1994 was renegotiated more than a year ago under pressure of Trump, who called it 'the worst trade deal in history' in his first presidential debate.
