The increasing exchange of tariffs makes it hard to plan for the future and, with tariffs on vehicles exported to China now reaching 40 per cent, there is no business case for exporting vehicles from the United States, he said.

"Our hope is that Canada comes along and joins that right now".

"If you can't have some curb on the arbitrary use of tariffs under the guise of national security with a member of [the North American Aerospace Defense Command] and somebody who is your closest defence partner, then I don't think it's much of agreement", he told a Politico event in Toronto.

"We have always been advocates for balanced and free trade", Hinrichs said.

"With Mexico, we're not going to say: "No deal" because of Canada", Lighthizer said.

Asked about the challenges posed by a USA threat of auto tariffs, Trudeau said Canada would need to feel confident "about the path forward as we move forward - if we do - on a NAFTA 2.0". "And frankly we're thinking about just taxing cars coming in from Canada", he said.

"The fact is, Canada is not making concessions in areas where we think they're essential", he said at the Concordia Summit in NY.

"On steel and aluminum on this point, we started off trying to have some kind of overall agreement that would accomplish that". "A broad range of paths are ahead of us". The Congress, however, may not approve the revisions if Canada is not to be included in the deal.

"We have always been advocates for balanced and free trade", Hinrichs said on Monday.

The U.S.is moving forward on its bilateral trade deal with Mexico even if Canada is left out because negotiators can't resolve their sharp differences over dairy and a dispute resolution system, U.S. Trade Representative Robert Lighthizer said.

U.S. President Donald Trump on Wednesday blasted Canada over the slow pace of talks over NAFTA, saying he was so unhappy that he had rejected Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau's request for a one-on-one meeting.

Flavio Volpe, the head of Canada's auto-parts industry lobby, said Mr. Lighthizer was moving the goalposts and that Canada should hold the United States to its original promise that a NAFTA deal would mean no tariffs.

Trudeau also downplayed a brief handshake with Trump at a luncheon Tuesday, where the US president remained seated despite standing to greet other leaders. "There are all sorts of opportunities for me to speak to President Trump, and that was not the time". "I think there's a possibility there to build on what they agreed".
