Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau criticized the USA decision, calling the tariffs "totally unacceptable" and their premise of Canada being a threat to national security "inconceivable".
Mr. Trump says - as he has many times before - that NAFTA has been a bad deal for the United States, while its North American trading partners make "many billions of dollars" at the expense of Americans.

Trump had reportedly offered Canada and Mexico, America's two partners in the North American Fair Trade Agreement, an exemption from the tariffs if they agreed to his demands concerning the renegotiation of NAFTA.
"If a very large proportion of that lands in the European market that pushes prices down and could mean hundreds if not thousands of jobs".
"To be honest with you, I wouldn't mind seeing NAFTA where you'd go by a different name, where you'd make a separate deal with Canada and a separate deal with Mexico", Trump said. Both she and Trudeau sounded incredulous that Canada could ever be considered a national-security threat to such a close and important ally.
