BrownfieldAgNews reports:

Both President Trump and Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau say they are mostly satisfied with current trade relationship between the two countries.

President Trump says while trade with Canada has been good for the US under the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA), trade with Mexico is a different story.

"For many many years the transaction was not fair to the United States. It's an extremely unfair transaction. We're going to work with Mexico and make it a fair deal for both parties. I think that we're going to get along very well with Mexico," says Trump.

Prime Minister Trudeau says much of the Canadian economy depends on working trade agreements with the United States.

"The fact is that millions of good jobs on both sides of the border depend on the smooth and easy flow of goods, services and people back and forth across our border," says Trudeau

The President says current trade deals with Canada could be modified, but did not elaborate on how it could be changed.

"We'll be tweaking it. We'll be doing certain things that are going to benefit both of our countries," says Trump.

Late last month a coalition of dairy organizations asked the President to address Canada's refusal to allow U.S. ultra-filtered milk power into the country, calling it a flagrant violation of NAFTA.

Both men spoke at a joint press conference on Monday.
