The Trump administration informed lawmakers that it intends to launch formal negotiations for overhauling the North American Free Trade Agreement, a gamble by President Donald Trump that he can win concessions from Canada and Mexico and push a deal through Congress. In a letter to congressional leaders, U.S. trade representative Robert Lighthizer said the administration will start talks in as soon as 90 days, in line with congressional rules on negotiating trade deals subject to expedited consideration by lawmakers.
