Washington: Amidst intense negotiation with Mexico and Canada on the North America Free Trade Agreement, President Donald Trump on Friday said that it is a "horrible, horrible disaster" for the US.

The Trump administration is currently negotiating NAFTA with Mexico and Canada. "NAFTA has been a horrible, horrible disaster for this country. And we'll see if we can make it reasonable," Trump told reporters during a meeting with major auto makers at the White House.

 

"We will see what happens. We're negotiating NAFTA right now. I've never been a NAFTA fan. NAFTA has been a terrible deal for the United States and one of the worst trade deals in history," he said.

"We have some bad deals in this country - between the Iran deal, NAFTA - Mary, we can look at any deal. Bad deals. But now we're going to good deals," he said in response to a question.

NAFTA has been a terrible deal, he said. "We're renegotiating it now. We'll see what happens. Look they (Mexico and Canada) don't like to lose the golden goose, but I'm representing the United States. I'm not representing Mexico, and I'm not representing Canada," Trump added.
