WASHINGTON: Canada and the United States ended talks on Friday to update the North American Free Trade Agreement in a mood soured by President Donald Trump´s comments that a pact would be on U.S. terms while Ottawa stood firm against signing "just any deal".
Upon arriving for the first meeting of the day, Freeland said she was eagerly awaiting what Lighthizer had to say, having had the night to mull things over. In a "bombshell" release, The Star reports that Trump actually refuses to compromise at all with Canadian officials.
For a President who usually attacks those who betray his confidence as "low-life leakers", Donald Trump did not seem particularly upset at the anonymous source who leaked his off-the-record comments about not budging to accommodate Canada in the negotiations to save NAFTA. In response, Lindsay Walters, a White House spokeswoman, said only, "The Canadian and American negotiators continue to work on reaching a win-win deal that benefits both countries". Trump wanted the comments to remain private because otherwise "it's going to be so insulting they're not going to be able to make a deal".
While Freeland said the U.S. trade team was negotiating in good faith, a Canadian source told AFP that Ottawa expressed their disapproval to Lighthizer.
The U.S. demanded those tougher standards to boost workers who've complained that cheap foreign labor is siphoning off jobs and lowering wages.

Canada, she added, was not just looking for any deal. Trump said he had a new name for that pact: the United States-Mexico Trade Agreement.
Lighthizer, she said, had "brought good faith and good will to the negotiating table" over the past year that they'd been talking to each other.
