Questions Still Remain Regarding New Deal To Replace NAFTA

President Donald Trump spoke Monday about the preliminary deal with Mexico to replace the North American Free Trade Agreement, or NAFTA. 

The president talked up the deal as a triumph, pointing to Monday’s surge in the stock market, but many questions still remain. This includes what about that third country that’s been a part of NAFTA.

Trump says he will negotiate with Canada, but it’s up in the air whether Canada will join a new pact.
