Canada says it takes Trump's talk of NAFTA withdrawal seriously

National Farmers Union (NFU) said that while USMCA makes important improvements over NAFTA, the deal now does not go far enough to institute a fair trade framework that benefits family farmers and ranchers and restores sovereignty to the US.

Massachusetts Democrat Elizabeth Warren, a member of the Senate Armed Services Committee and one of more than a dozen names believed to be eyeing a presidential run in 2020, has added her name to the list of lawmakers who say they won't support the new agreement. Charles Grassley, R-Iowa, said Monday on the radio show "Adams on Agriculture".

"As it's now written, Trump's deal won't stop the serious and ongoing harm NAFTA causes for American workers".
