Guest: Charles Hankla, PhD, Associate Professor of Political Science, Georgia State University Just before leaving on his first trip abroad, President Trump officially got the clock rolling on talks to renegotiate the trade pact Canada, Mexico and the US have been operating under for more than 20 years. On the campaign trail, Trump said he wanted to rip up the trade agreement known as NAFTA, but then he took office, spent some time talking to the leaders of Canada and Mexico, and decided the agreement just needed some tweaking. For the next two and a half months, Trump will consult with Congress, industries, and the American public before starting official talks with Canada and Mexico in August.
