Mr President, how are they going?
I think they are going really well. Canada is here right now. They were here till late in the evening. They came to see us, they wanted to meet us. They want to be a part of it. The deal we made is fantastic. It's gotten great reviews with Mexico - the trade deal. Right now, we call it the US-Mexico Trade Agreement and we'll see whether or not Canada gets into it.
Otherwise, we'll do something separately or we won't do anything, which is OK too.
Are you optimistic?
I think so. I think Canada very much wants to make the deal. And I think it's going to be, obviously, very good for Canada if they do and I think it's probably not going to be good at all if they don't. We have a very good relationship.
They came yesterday to the White House and we negotiated late into the evening. They're in the White House right now. We're negotiating with them right now and they want to be a part of the deal. And we gave till Friday and I think we're probably on track. We'll see what happens.
But, in any event, things are working out very well. A lot of trade deals are working out well. The European Union, which really has major barriers to trade - you don't know what barriers are, but it's not good. Not fair for our farmers and others. Those barriers will be coming down.
