Auto restrictions in Trump trade deal with Mexico, Canada used to pressure China

(Worthy News) - President Trump’s ability to wangle a new deal from NAFTA partners Mexico and Canada will give the White House leverage to take a harder line in the escalating trade war with China, administration backers said Monday.

“Now the focus turns to China, where President Trump can resume his negotiations from a position of strength,” said Chris Garcia, a former Commerce Department deputy director.

  1. China has been making patty-cakes with Mexico and Canada up till now in order to surround the U.S. with it's near trading partners. But President Trump is "smart"; he's quashing that too.
