Donald Trump announces meeting with countries to renegotiate trade deals

July 24, 2018

President Trump announced Monday that countries caught up in tense trade relations with the U.S. would visit to negotiate.

Mr. Trump didn’t specifically by name which countries will come to the White House or when they’re set to arrive.

The president has recently been tough on the European Union, China, Canada and Mexico over trade, accusing each of taking advantage of the U.S. old trade deals.

Those four, as well as Turkey, were slapped with disputes at the World Trade Organization by the U.S.

Countries that have treated us unfairly on trade for years are all coming to Washington to negotiate. This should have taken place many years ago but,as the saying goes, better late than never! Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) July 24, 2018
